  • Hi,

    I stumbled over the sentence "Men's investment in reproduction is lower than women's" again.

    Starting with the marooned island scenario, with 9 women and one man,
    simpleman formulated what I'd like to henceforth be known as simpleman's law:

    Without men to supply resources, children die. (Women, too, perhaps.)

    So men _are_ actually investing a lot of resources in reproduction; the result is what we call civilization.

    But this has a corollary.
    While it is relatively easy for women to get sex, men have to work harder in order to get it.
    Isn't that work also an investment in reproduction?

    One might say it is not a direct investment in the offspring, but is that the same?
