Random Tangent: Darwin

So, I’m sitting in class while we discuss Darwinism, and I’m struck by an odd thought:

Throughout the animal kingdom, the general rule is that males jump through hoops — building homes, fighting rivals, risking being eaten to stand out with the prettiest colours — to earn the right to mate. Among Western humans, males tend to presuppose that they automatically have the right to mate — and then get upset, even violent, when they are refused.

Methinks something went wrong, somewhere.
