Isn't That The Truth

Just as man invents and constructs technological artifacts which are to serve him and fulfill his desires, so woman as she has been socially invented and constructed, is expected to reflect man's need to be the natural vessel of man's reproductive capacity, a mere bodily extension of the male's procreative powers.
From After the Great Divide: Modernism, Mass Culture, Postmodernism (Theories of Representation and Difference), by Andreas Huyssen.
