that's an excellent point , I've been beating myself up over this, and all I could think of was because in each culture, there is either a
matriarchal society or patriachal society, and to get to either one there would of had to of been a power struggle between the two sexes, the other
one i thought of was because of resurgent threats over which the greek patriarchal order had to assert itself time after time.
But the question still remains, why does eahc culture have to have a gender associated with it???
Why couldn't earth and sky be produced by a thing??
Not male or female, but an "object"
Just to get out of that main stream thinking...
you know how creation myths start off w/ chaos,
and then there is order?? Well how come
some kind of "object" not sex create the world.
Some stories have that, but the ones that use sex, i'm just wondering why??
but worldwatcher, that is a good explanation.
