With all due respect, Vaj, I think that your description
of "desert peoples" below is limited to one particular
stretch of desert -- North Africa and the Middle East.
The generalizations you make do not seem to apply to
the desert cultures of America (Native Americans) or
to the many desert cultures of Tibet and China, AFAIK.

Many of the three desert cultures I mention above were
matriarchal, did *not* practice genital mutilation,
had much more of a balance between rights of women and
men, etc. In other words, it ain't "the desert" that's
a factor here, it's just one particular desert.
