Ahem... jo comment :) (and no argument either...)

Pretty damn quick delivery too, from warehouse in California to shop shelf in Glasgow in just 9 days.

Yes, this was my point about the descrimination (is it 'descrimination' or 'discrimination'? I don't have a spell-checker here), not the realism or lack thereof, not the 'accuracy' to realworld  cultures, but the message it gives to present-day players - decent men are warriors, decent women are housewives (or steadwives, or whatever). Hardly going to improve the image to potential female players! And whatever options are in ST will just serve to remind everyone that these are the fringes of acceptable society, only just acceptable behaviour.
