It might be that male and female humans suffer different selection pressures and therefore they have different “natures” or tendencies or whatever. It might be. On the other hand, it seems that of all the selection pressures that human beings are subjected to, the strongest by a long long margin is selection to adaptability. That means: much more important for me as part of an Homo sapiens sapiens lineage than being strong or fast or resistant to cold or warmth or being smart or anything else for that matter, more important than any of those things is that i am able to adapt to whatever conditions i happen to be thrown at. If this is so, even if males and females are subjected to different selection pressures, in the end those differences will amount to much less than the adaptability of individuals, which include the adaptability do different “gender roles”. That is, even if there are “natural” gender dispositions they are weaker than the human capacity to act in ways different than those conjectural basic behaviour modes.
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
