Female status, food security, and stature sexual dimorphism: Testing mate choice as a mechanism in human self-domestication
Objectives: Humans exhibit multiple anatomical and behavioral signatures of domestication syndrome, leading evolutionary‐minded scholars to suggest Homo sapiens is a “self‐domesticated” species. We examined one of three mechanisms proposed to explain human self‐domestication—that is, intersexual selection against reactive aggression. We hypothesized that this process has been, at least in part, caused by context‐dependent female preferences for less‐aggressive males. We predicted that societies...[Show more]
