I understand that. But I was getting impatient with the feeling in this thread that there was some kind of moral equivalence between men's power-seeking ambition in seeking sex and women's need for love, acceptance, or protection.
To highlight why I disagreed, I pointed to rape as an extreme example. It's most often something men do, not women. And by pointing out the extremes (as I said), we can better understand the middle.
