As to the statement "history is written by winners" - how does that prove that matriarchal societies existed?
This is loaded with unfounded assumptions. First of all, you don't speak for all women. History is filled with women who took up arms to protect their country. Here's an example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyudmila_PavlichenkoRegarding before, I cannot change your mind, only you can do so, but I certainly would never pull out a gun if my country was invaded. What do you mean invaded? What would that change you personally? And why would you resort to violence? The instinct for COMPETITION and AGGRESSIVENESS is a male one. The eternal fight to see who has the bigger penis. That might well be one of the reasons men dominate women. Anyway, this is a long reasoning that you would have to do yourself with yourself.
And there are female volunteers in the US military too you know.
Also, you are making an assumption on how I would react in certain circumstances. For all you know, I would just move to a safer place instead of taking up arms against the invaders, or wait till the whole thing blew over and support the winners, whoever they may be.
When you say "ACTUAL EXPERTS" all I see is "PEOPLE WHOSE OPINIONS I SHARE"i merely wanted to tell you that IF YOU ARE INTERESTED YOU SHOULD READ STUFF BY ACTUAL EXPERTS.
