    Couldn't justify a new thread for this, and it seemed to fit best here...

    Maybe. Maybe not?

    I was always into boy toys.

    I know that study!

    I cite it as an example of the greatest depths of preposterousness that evolutionary psychology can descend into.

    How so?
    There have been similar results from studying babies.

    Sometimes quantitative results need some good qualitative analysis, too.

    The fact that they were testing monkeys, and applying to those monkeys such blatantly cultural things, is a bit of a problem.

    That was acknowledge in the study, but their attempt at explaining why the preference would be there struck me as rather weak.

    I could get the females being more interested in dolls. If there was going to be a biologically innate preference, I'd get that. But it was really the pot that killed me. That's not only anthropomorphizing, that's westernizing.

    If their theory was dependent on motion, a preference based on action as they suggested, then why didn't they have the monkeys choose between balls and blocks/trapazoids, instead of those frivolously "male" and "female" toys?

    Also, we really have no idea how much those monkeys do or don't think like us.

    EDIT: A question donned on me. How much direct neuroanlaysis has been done on male and female infant brains?

    EDIT 2: I should copy and past this to my appropriate thread.

    wow....gender....equality scores? I don't see how this could be useful. Maybe microcosmically, but seriously, if women as a whole wanted "equality"(especially occupational opportunities) they would stop having kids. Get an abortion now and save $200,000.

    Haha! I missed that detail. Perhaps they were trying to explain the evolution of cooking too!
