Ask A Genius 268 – Sociobiological Perspective

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

August 23, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Alright, one more possibility is the sociobiological perspective which basically boils down to eggs expensive, sperm cheap. Women’s part of the reproductive process is being pregnant for 39 what, 40 weeks and then having to raise the kids for years and years and years. Guys can get away with just like jazzing into somebody and you could argue that socio biologically, women have a bigger stake in non-dumb shit behavior. That there may be a biological bias in women of being responsible. At the very least they have to stay alive for nine and a half months to birth the baby and then traditionally they nurse the baby for a year or two years, so that’s right there you’re looking at 2 -3 years of not being a wild ass hole. Yet you know there are plenty of guys who are successful at making somebody pregnant and then making themselves dead by being an idiot and you know the species goes on. So I don’t know is that I don’t feel like that’s too horribly sexist an idea, but you know there are plenty of species worth of the males do the child-rearing and the hanging around

Scott Douglas Jacobsen:  Is that historically our species?

Rosner: Not historically though I learned in women’s studies that their prehistorically it may be the case. That pre historically, we humans may have lived in matriarch ease. It were, had a lot less asshole eerie, because women were in charge. There was community, there was free love, there was there weren’t Wars, I don’t know if there’s evidence for that but you know it works pretty well on Wonder Woman’s Island where there are no guys at all. Leave that last part out cuz it’s really stupid or not I don’t care anyway that’s it.
