I have noticed that metaphors for women in science fiction seem to involve green skinned aliens a lot. The Thrint are green skinned aliens. Star Trek has green skinned aliens called the Orions. Orion women have these ultra powerful pheromones they use to manipulate Orion men and men from other species, including human men.
The real nature of Orion women is fleshed out in Star Trek: Enterprise. Initially in Star Trek: Enterprise we learn that Orion women and only Orion women are sold as slaves. That along with everything else we see about that Orions makes it look like Orion men are in charge and that Orion women are virtual slaves if not outright slaves. However, that’s not the case. Several episodes later we discover it’s actually the reverse. Orion women secretly rule and enslave Orion men, and things like Orion women being sold into slavery is just a cover for the Orion women’s scam. Orion women use their pheromones and sex in general to control men similar to how the Thrint used their telepathic “power” to make slaves of aliens.
I’m surprised that something so accurate about the nature of women was ever shown on TV. However, that’s the beauty of science fiction. If someone were to accurately depict the nature of women, it would never be shown on TV. Instead use green skinned aliens, and it doesn’t get noticed by the gynocrats who would normally put a stop to such things.
