The last comment from me on this subject (I promise):

Philip states: 

" As far as the ideas of the sexism in human society, there is no shortage
of other mammal species that
run a similar system of males taking a domineering role over females."

That is true. While there are anatomical, physiological and natural
environmental influences to human sexism (i.e. sexist attitudes), a
significant proportion is culturally- and/or religiously-based.  Religion is
a cerebral concept that, as far as I know, is unique to the human species.
The gender roles of humans are "inventions" based on culture and religion
and are additional to the roles of sexes that nature defines for each
