Data should smash the biological myth of promiscuous males and sexually coy females

"The most persistent stereotypes is that male and female sexualty is completely different, women being shy, coy and passive, men being aggressive, dominant and active. Women are chaste, men are promiscous. Or -- at least -- they ought to be, if they follow the rules of Darwinian competition.

It turns most of these ideas are rooted in Victorian misconceptions. New research shows, for instance, that females, in most species, are not more monogamous than males."

Members of CDL discuss gender stereotypes and what it means for gender identity.

A safe place for discussing gender variance!
