BUT if evolution didn’t determine human behavior, what did?
The most common explanation is the effect of cultural norms.
(Think Kennedy, Clinton, Spitzer, Letterman and so forth.
My space is limited.) One of the earliest critics of this kind of thinking was Stephen Jay Gould.
If a man mated with a promiscuous woman, he would never be able to ensure his paternity.
Men, on the other hand, could potentially enhance their status by pursuing a short-term mating strategy.
Finally, and here’s where the leap occurs, they construct an evolutionary theory to explain why men think about sex more than women, where that gender difference came from, what adaptive purpose it served in antiquity, and why we’re stuck with the consequences today.
Then they gather evidence — from studies, statistics and surveys — to support that assumption.Therefore, men should be expected to be less discriminating and more aggressive in competing for females.It was an elegant, powerful application of evolutionary theory to the mating game.In speed dating, as in life, the social norm instructs women to sit in one place, waiting to be approached, while the men rotate tables. The mere act of physically approaching a potential romantic partner, they argued, engendered more favorable assessments of that person. To back up the assumption that an enormous gap exists between men’s and women’s attitudes toward casual sex, evolutionary psychologists typically cite a classic study published in 1989.But in one study of speed-dating behavior, the evolutionary psychologists Eli J. Men and women on a college campus were approached in public and propositioned with offers of casual sex by “confederates” who worked for the study.
But women were much less likely to agree to go to the confederate’s apartment.
