Universal sex differences across patriarchal cultures [not equal] evolved psychological dispositions
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):281-283 (2005)
AbstractSchmitt's findings provide little evidence that sex differences in sociosexuality are explained by evolved dispositions. These sex differences are better explained by an evolutionary account that treats the psychological attributes of women and men as emergent, given the biological attributes of the sexes, especially female reproductive capacity, and the economic and social structural aspects of societies.
