Men Aren’t Completely Useless ….
by An Ordinary Man (the novel)
“The beetles are also notable for their sex roles: The males contribute nothing to the upbringing of offspring, other than their genes. That makes them well-suited for an experiment aimed at figuring out why the females are better off even if they have to deal with useless males.”
I loved the article on NBCnews.com today explaining that even “the most useless males in the animal world contribute to the long-term evolutionary fitness of a species” based on an experiment indicating that all-female societies would eventually go extinct due to accumulated mutations. Well done, Alan Boyle.
