Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Feminism is a "feedback" in the West only. The low birth rate might be the adaptation, after all - ecological overshots must have a lo-o-ong evolutionary history.

The mechanism of how the increased women reproductive power leads to lower birthrates is a mystery - but I dare to see here not just increased economic stress factors, but paucity of genuine biochemical triggers in a high status woman's life. I just became a bit more convinced about this after reading about sexting. It must perhaps remain a not-so-politically-correct secret, but (on the sub-conscious level) the line between feminine arousal and forced situations can be very uncomfortably blurred. But I would rather stop insisting on that.

I would rather believe you would. I'm not sure I do at this stage.
