Why men like evolutionary psychology

Men like Evo-Psych because (despite an abundance of theories on the evolution of social groups) it basically comes down to this: As far as evolution is concerned, the only criteria that matters is the reproduction of the species. By definition, this is a lens that allows them to reduce women and their value to the role of sexual reproduction. Since this is how/why patriarchy was invented, it fits so nicely into their rhetoric. It’s not that they are misogynist for focusing on women as sexual objects, it’s just science. This allows them to ignore the fact that the use of this framework is a choice.

    Are you kidding me? I hate evolution, period. Consciousness is unnecessary.
