A typical example of a biological determinist view is that of Geddes and Thompson who, inargued that social, psychological and behavioural traits were caused by metabolic state.

In the beginning of her third marriage she was very submissive to her husband, but about a year or so into that marriage she returned to her old ways and fully embraced her feminist attitudes of the past.
One of her favorite Bible verses is Ephesians 5: Now if you are wondering how I — Mr. Biblical Gender Roles himself, ended up marrying into a feminist family that is a longer story for another day.
