I remember reading about this culture a little in Sex at Dawn; it was nice to get more detailed information here. Also great to read the description as it being a "matriarchal society," as it is generally believed that no matriarchal societies exist, (Sex at Dawn suggests that the reality is that matriarchal societies simply appear egalitarian).

I think that every society has advantages and disadvantages, but that if the people commenting on this thread had been born into and raised in that society, that their family dynamic and experiences growing up, and likely the people in their family, would have been very, very different, and it perhaps would have been more bearable than you think. Being thrown into this society as you are now, a full-grown adult in the society you live in and know right now, is much different than having been raised in it.
