Hmm....  I admit female-dominant socities are rarer but i dont think they
never existed.  Males tend to be mroe agressive due to hormonal balance,
but that can be manifested many ways.

My poitn however was really that when you talk abotu such thinsg yo uare
talking about AVERAGEs thawt do not apply to everyone.  I certainly know of
one young woman (who id ated in college) who was more agressive, larger
framed, and probably stronger at the time then I was.

As i already mentioned though in ALL historical periods there have been
exceptional people who broke al lthe molds.  George Sands comes to mind off
the toip of my head.  In msot RPGs it is a given that the players ARE
playign the exceptional, abnormal people in society...

As a last point, if you want to reacha  wide comemrcial audiance (I knwo
most of you probably arebnt as cocnerned with thsi as I am) then you dont
want peopel to feel they have been disadvantged in-game because of
something like sex.
