comment Is handwriting style heritable?
It would probably be easier to answer the question if you made it more general and less personal: "Is handwriting heritable?" could be an alternative.

comment Mulitiple partners: macho man vs. easy woman?
If you'd like to know more, look up "reproduction of the fittest" as "survival of the fittest" is really a misnomer. We should probably stop this side point. If you like, you can ask questions at the biology Stack exchange for further clarification.

comment Mulitiple partners: macho man vs. easy woman?
Thats really completely incorrect. This is really a whole 'nother discussion, but any line that was "stronger" but didn't reproduce isn't around today. Many organisms finds ways besides strength to reproduce. Your simplistic argument of larger testes really underlies a misunderstanding of basic evolutionary principles.

The evolutionary argument for male promiscuity is that promiscuous males can have more offspring than promiscuous females so a brute force evolutionary simulation would favor male promiscuity. Of course evolution is more complicated than that, but I simplify for brevity.

Casey, it's an evolutionary argument. Evolutionary motivation shouldn't be confused with human motivation. Nobody is saying sexuality ends when someone becomes pregnant.

In terms of reproductive advantage, female mammals can only get pregnant once every 9 months, but males can get several females pregnant in 9 months. There are probably many more factors, but this seems like it would play a role in sexual selection.
