I've also done a bit of reading about the history of agriculture that suggest the transition from hunter gatherer to farmer was gradual. Many hunter gatherer tribes incorporated domestication of local flora and fauna, with or without seasonal migration.

I like this! I hadn't thought of that before!

I had a bit of a lightbulb moment reading this:
- specifically, the part at the end about the paleo "formula" as a way of denying the importance of BF and an attempt by men to take over the maternal function. I'm not sure I think paleo is conciously that misogynist, but there are a few alarm bells going off!

conciously that misogynist
I rarely see conscious misogyny. We are all steeped in our cultural traditions which just so happen to include patriarchal assumptions that are sometimes downright hostile towards women and sometimes just completely blind towards women. Culture is so pervasive it can be hard (even impossible) to see. It's like trying to see the lens when you're looking through a camera - you can't but you can become more aware of it's effects on the image you see.

Didn't see that as a rant, more a well articulated view on how it is. It's sad (and I do it too) that stating the facts gets categorised as a rant. #threadjackingtoo

This usually applies when one is 1) challenging the status quo and 2) passionate. So, often i t actually proves the point which is being made.
