As a human of the female persuasion, I'm not at all offended by that post...my own anthropomorphic ideas definitely stem from my maternal/caretaking instinct (although I'm sure that some males have a paternal instinct that kicks in, too, just not as strongly, perhaps). I don't know if I would agree that it's subconcious, though. I'm pretty aware of it, even if it's hard to put words to sometimes. I guess I can't speak for all female kind
And Speilberg's no dummy...The knowledge of Anthropomorphism is why ET didn't look like an Ameba. Who the heck would go to a movie about middle class kids and a blob of cosmic ectoplasm?
Hahahahaha. Great post!
