    classical music is patriarchal and therefore evil

    Classical music is patriarchal. Space travel is patriarchal. Western literature is patriarchal. Medieval gothic architecture is patriarchal. Science is patriarchal. Engineering is patriarchal. Renaissance art is patriarchal. Cars are patriarchal.

    They’re all proof of the absolute awesomeness of patriarchy. We need more patriarchy and we need it now!

    As Camille Paglia pointed out, “If civilization had been left in female hands we would still be living in grass huts.”

      Excellent.

      As has been stated over and over and over – there are so many skill sets the female simply can’t be rivalled on. It’s just that these ain’t them.

        Absolutely. If childbirth and childcare were left to men (noted for their stunning lack of maternal feelings), the number of humans inhabiting this planet would be very small indeed.

        So many people forget that there are two sexes for a reason. As in all things, nature provides the balance.

    Beaker People.

    Every month there is a new study that contradicts the last. First of all, they are comparing a very small sample of skeletons, those that have been found. Secondly, our skills in extracting ancient DNA samples are not very reliable yet.

    Also some confusion over genetic dominance; quite possibly the two peoples interbred and the new DNA dominated in offspring and nothing more. Both my children have brown eyes and olive skin – I am not extinct.

    Funny how all new studies always seem to underline the “nation of immigrants” narrative.

      Yes, it is curious how the narrative always underpins these things.

        I confess that upon hearing the report yesterday on the wireless, my first thought was ‘brought to you by Remainer geneticists’ ….an unworthy thought of course.

      There you go clouding the issue with facts again, Wolfie… 🙂

    Unable to add a picture, but can quite understand that many of our political masters may carry the DNA of that lab assistant from the Muppets.
