Les miserables : Fantine by Victor Hugo (1802-1885) (book search)

I turn towards the men : gentlemen, make conquests. Rob each other without remorse of your beloved. Chassez and cross over. There are no friends in love. Wherever there is a pretty woman, hostility is open. No quarter ; war to the knife! A pretty woman, is a casus belli ; a pretty woman is a flagrans delictum. All the invasions of history have been determined by petticoats. Woman is the right of man. Romulus carried off the Sabine woman ; Willaims carried off the Saxon women ; Ceasar carried off the Roman woman. The man who is not loved hovers like a vulture over the sweetheart of others ; and for my part, to all unfortunate widowers, I issue the sublime proclamation of Bonaparte to the army of Italy, ‘Soldiers, you lack everything. The enemy has everything.’
Why do they want their woman, females have two X-chromosomes, whilst they carried off with their woman they win twice. A cruel cunning military strategy to say the least, nevertheless an effective tactic. To gain supremacy against ones opponent’s one needs resources and one needs to reduce their opponent’s resources, hence their will to fight is diminished considerably. So it would be fare to say that battles have shaped the destiny of mankind, to a great extent, for better or worse, could well depend on where one stands in the world (allegiance lies). All things considered, one could state that the ‘fight’ is in our ‘genes’, being a generation, regenerated from survivors of such bitter battles and wars waged, particularly in historical times gone by.
Each person normally has one pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. Females have two X chromosomes, whereas males have one X and one Y chromosome. Both males and females retain one of their mother's X chromosomes, and females retain their second X chromosome from their father. Since the father retains his X chromosome from his mother, a human female has one X chromosome from her paternal grandmother (father's side), and one X chromosome from her mother.
