Why do Mrs. Parsons and her daughter want to go with the aliens?
To my opinion, this is just to reflect the author's emotional problem
in his(her) mind as being a lonely suicidal woman.As you know the author, James Tiptree Jr. was actually a woman with real name Alice Bradley Shelton. No matter what kind of living she had, she had always been haunted by loneliness deep in her mind. As you know she finally killed her almost blind husband and then herself. She could not cope with the earthly world and live. Like one woman told the CIA detective, Fenton, "What women do is to survive" "We live by ones and twos in the clinks of your world-machine". Apparently the women prefer aliens to being ruled by men so they can escape from the world which was like a jail to them.
