I do not think that equality between the sexes is completely possible, Sydney!
Quite, but I don't think that anyone in his/her right mind would seek to claim, or even aim towards, 100% equality between those two sexes in all respects. Equality of opportunity, however, is important and broadly achievable; equality of respect is even more so. "Vive la différence!" say I and, I'm sure, many millions of others also, but there's a vast difference between that stance and one in which women are treated as though second-class citizens and written about from time to time in the patronising and gratuitous way that Sydney seems determined to do, as though applauding the way things were in a bygone age and appearing to regret that they have not stood still since.
It is theoretically possible that I could give birth, for example, but it would require a major operation.[/qutoe} Then it would surely be best to stick to the theoretical aspect of this and not embrace the practical!
As for race, you could argue that 'black' aborigines are best evolved to live in Australia? In evolutionary terms, if you accept the out of Africa hypothesis, we are all descended from Africans anyway, but in the cooler climates of northern Europe, we have lost most of our pigmentation over thousands of years. This might me pink rather than white, but how objective do we want to be about our colour? If the global warming hypothesis is true, it seems likely to me that we will witness mass migration from the tropics towards the poles.
I think that your second sentence here rather argues with your first. Even leaving aside the argument that very few people are "best evolved" to live anywhere in Australia other than its cities and other places where most of that country's population actually does live, people do and increasingly will relocate for all manner of reasons of which climate change (not the over-simplistic half-truth "global warming", please!) is just one and, as you write, over gererations, skin pigmentation will change as indeed it has done. That said, have a look at the average Laplander and observe his/her comparative darkness of skin pigmentation!...
