    there are ways in which relatedness is recognised, even though we don't credit them with much weight these days. You also seem to say that men wouldn't have parental instincts or inclinations unless they were externally applied and reinforced. With that I profoundly disagree, I've known many men with really great parenting instincts. And in the old societies where maternal line was counted as heritage, men were intrinsic to their sister's kids' care. So not their own issue, but their sisters' children.
