Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On the other hand Feminism as such has only been around little more than a century.

Big tests are still to follow thus.

The few examples of matriarchal or "equal" societies do not quite decide what is natural. Explaining their paucity just by patriarchal aggression is just a "so-so" story as any other.

The Aka example is interesting, also from the ecological perspective. Extensive fatherly involvement does not look unnatural to me - but it is rather a luxury in the modern economy (and perhaps in many cultures).
