  1. Mine too. And my interest in genealogy hasn’t picked up on the logic of these propositions, because family trees are set up to EXPECT equal numbers of ancestors in each gender. The biggest surprise was the proportion of men who could expect to have descendants, compared to women. My attention heretofore had been on the high loss of women of reproductive age to child-bearing-related mortality.

    This will require some paradigm shifting.

  2. Most men throughout history have been unsuccessful organisms. Most women have been successful organisms. The war between the sexes is starting to look a little lopsided.

  3. Loki says that this reminds him of the old joke about god looking at Adam and saying, “I can do better than that!”
