Recommended! A few quotes and notes: “… pregnancy as a proxy for punishment …” (p.x) But only for the women, even though the men are mostly responsible for causing the pregnancy (males have 100% control over ejaculation in a vagina; females have no control over whatsoever over ovulation and very seldom force a man to …
