    than he knows.  Another diary cites an excerpt from Demonic Males by anthropologist Richard Wrangham and science writer Dale Peterson.

    "Wrangham's theory is that human civilization would be more civilized if women seized more political power through elections and used it to counterbalance the male instinct to constantly define "enemies" and attack them. To make this advance, however, women must first abandon a tendency they share with female chimpanzees: to reward and select aggressive males as their mates. "The example of the bonobos reminds us that females and males can be equally important players in a society," says Wrangham. "And by giving us a model in which female action works in suppressing the excesses of male aggression, the bonobos show us that in democracies like our own, women's voices should be heard more than they are."
    Perhaps THAT explains ReTHUG obsession with getting at least THEIR government into vaginas.

      women may choose a so called alpha male as an initial sex partner but will likely choose a nurturing male to help raise the children.  I suspect that more than a few women have learned that choosing the nurturing male in the first place results in a much happier and much less chaotic life.

      Or, as I often remark to my mainly nurturing husband, "thank god I didn't marry any of those bozos I dated before 26"
