1st book was fine second started out good then get to the chapter where it is just over the top. The aliens children decide what gender, okay no biggie who cares? Didn't add to the story just figured she is fleshing them out. Then their advanced culture gets thrown back into the dark ages because and they have to use beasts of burden and the main character is horrified, really? It's not like they were slaughtering them, maybe they like pulling carts and protecting their owners? Then we get to the alien women who grope the Terran men but for some reason it's not vice versa. The male character is now sorry for all the times he objectified women. That was my last straw, I read science fiction to get away from the daily bombardment of ridiculousness called today's news. If you're a member of the thought police, for the record I don't care what color you are, I con't care what gender you are or are not, please stop telling me about it. Do or be whatever you want, I simply don't care to hear about it. Have a nice day.
