1) we are told that only racists imply that highly evolved creatures
such as humans behave in a wired-instinctive mode such as dogs.

2) it's not the mate recognition system we are concerned with.

3) Humans are screwing sheep in the 20th century and it's strange
to hear people make humanoids 50,000--100,000 years ago behave
like well-bred middle class city folk.
