"it’s society that’s getting a free ride on women’s unrewarded contributions to the perpetuation of the human race."This reveals a complete, though typical, lack of understanding of the human condition and situation - which is Darwinian.
Yes, Darwinian! Just because a previous generation of academics made a taboo of it (in OVERREACTION to the Nazis having hijacked and abused the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism for their own evil purposes), doesn't make it any the less true.
In order to understand ourselves and our situation we HAVE to view them from a human-evolutionary perspective. The taboo against doing so does not make us morally superior, as supposed, but stupid, as testified to by the dire state of our civilisation and its propensity to self-harm and self-destruction.
If our civilisation is to survive this century it must quickly overcome its fear of crossing this bridge to a Darwinian understanding of itself and its situation.
The Nazis demonstrated only too well how NOT to go about it, plunging themselves and Germany into the abyss. I've made a fresh start (HERE), but I need academic support. It is not a bridge that I, or anyone else, can cross on their own.
