  • The Importance Of Male Mates

    Male preference in choosing a potential mate is important knowledge for people trying to find a male mate. Research conducted by the University of Konkuk department of economics member Kitae Sohn indicates that the age of the potential mate plays a significant role in males’ preference, stating that men seek out younger mates.

Kitae Sohn explains reasoning behind this with results of the study in the article “Men 's revealed preference for their mates ' ages,” (2016) found in The Official Journal of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society. The author notes the findings that men prefer younger mates through an unusual marriage phenomenon in South Korea in which men purchase their brides from underdeveloped countries.

In today’s world, homosexual couples, as well as marriages, are becoming more acceptable and they need to be taken into consideration. These findings may be completely accurate for men seeking female mates, but…

    For my Do-It-Yourself Primatology project I chose to research how Indiana University male and female students behave differently in public when they are eating with a group of friends, versus eating on their own among strangers.

  • Theme Of Dualism In The Laugh Of The Medusa

    1.1 “Women as Other” (Beauvoir 1) The contemplation of women as other specie accommodates men to consider her as a less important being. The attitude of man is not based on equality, it’s a way to dehumanize woman on the whole. The French feminist Cixous in “The Laugh of the Medusa” has talked about the dualism of western thought which revolves around man/woman.
