Have you considered the oppressive nature of pumpkin spice lattes before buying one, you oppressor?
“Maternal and offspring fitness interests are aligned in certain domains and conflicting in others, which may have led to the evolution of fetal microchimeric phenotypes that can manipulate maternal tissues.” This is a crucial and often ignored area of research.
