When It Changed...
I really enjoy the exploration of gender differences in the stories we've read this week. When It Changed presents what I think is an accurate description. Women are every bit as capable of anything that a man is capable of, except that statistically speaking (see previous post) men are much more likely to sink into depravity.
I think that the fear womankind had of their rediscovery by mankind has all the makings of the arrival of Cortes except that Janet knew what was coming and the Aztecs did not. Their fear was justified and nothing the men did gave any indication that they should not. Their behaviour was not that of explorers or diplomats but conquerors.
Y The Last Man is a great spin on this idea... so far so good. More as this develops :)
