Not in the wild, no. But in “civilized” society, men have a pecking order and the toadies are the ones most invested in keeping women “in their place.” Because dammit, if they have to kiss some ass to get ahead in the world, they need to be darn sure someone’s kissing theirs too — and that’s gonna happen at home, you can be sure of that.
Which is why women are still doing the bulk of the housework even though they’re working too — because he isn’t going to kiss ass at work and then be “emasculated” at home, too. Oh, hell no. Welcome to feminism 101.
