      I'm not sure this meets the specified criteria, but in "Victoria Claflin
      Woodhull -- the 1st woman who aspired to be President" Wendy wrote

      "Woodhull is rightfully identified as an advocate of free love. That is,
      she believed the State had no place in regulating the private sexual
      arrangements between consenting adults. Such matters as marriage, divorce,
      and the recognition of illegitimate children should be left to the
      consciences of those involved. The specific arrangements should be a matter
      of consent and contract, not of regulatory law."

        IMLU, rapid changes in ocean chemistry, and the associated replacement
        of one fauna with another fauna, were part of Cuvier's then-
        conventional catastrophist geology.
