Funny how noone here has mentioned the significant drop in the importance
of a woman's performance of the kinds of activities which are supposedly
the main selectional forces against a larger pelvis, such as primitive
hunting or running away from predators. Anyone know what the

But we can't scoff at them personally, to their
faces, and this is what annoys me.
