Just got my latest copy of Scientific American.
Why is it that whenever they do a story on “early man” the covershot is always, always, always a man holding a spear?
Because showing a woman’s breasts on the cover (however artistically rendered) is scary? Or just because the idea of a female form standing in for “all humankind” is really scary?
I would love to see a woman with a spear representing “all of mankind.”
It would be no more or less totally representative than this stupid “artistic” rendering.
