Oh, yeah, and one more thing before I forget:
This whole romanticized view of tribal life to justify completely bogus evolutionary psychology designed to reinforce whatever the romanticizer's preconceptions of the idealized primeval human state are thing gets up my nose so fucking bad I can't stand it.
And while we're at it, can somebody tell those Atkins/"caveman diet" folks that in your typical hunter-gatherer ("Appropriator," my favorite anth professor would have insisted) society, 90% of the calories are provided by women's labor?
An appropriator diet is really healthy.
It's mostly vegetables and insects.
Nom nom nom.
