  1. Male protagonists are likely to be more active, courageous, and physically heroic than female protagonists (372).Gottschall, Jonathan - Patterns of charaterization in folktales across geographical regions and lev..., 2003 - 2 Variables

    This article takes an evolutionary approach to understanding the patterns of characterization in folktales cross-culturally. Results indicate that literature shares several common themes cross-culturally, including mate selection and kin directed altruism.

In folktales, males will place a higher emphasis on the physical attractiveness of potential mates and females will place a greater emphasis on a potential mate's capacity to gain and hold social and material resources (370).Gottschall, Jonathan - Patterns of charaterization in folktales across geographical regions and lev..., 2003 - 2 Variables

  3. Male androphilia is predominantly expressed in the transgendered form under conditions similar to human ancestry (382).VanderLaan, Doug P. - Male androphilia in the ancestral environment: an ethnological analysis, 2013 - 2 Variables

    "The kin selection hypothesis posits that male androphilia evolved because androphilic males invest more in kin, thereby enhancing inclusive fitness." However, increased kin-directed altruism has only been seen in societies that exhibit transgendered male androphilia. To test the validity of the kin selection hypothesis for male androphilia, the authors examine the relationship between ancestral sociocultural conditions, access to kin, and societal reactions to homosexuality and the expression of male androphilia as transgendered or non-transgendered. They find that ancestral sociocultural conditions and bilateral and double descent systems were more common in transgendered than non-transgendered societies.

  6. Both male and female characters will prioritize kindess as a criterion for mate preference (108).Gottschall, Jonathan - Sex differences in mate choice criteria are reflected in folktales from arou..., 2004 - 2 Variables

    This article expands on Buss's (1989) study of the differences in male and female mate preferences in Western folktale characters by adding non-Western data. The new results show support for Buss's original findings.

  9. Brides and their parents are expected to have a greater net gain in resources at the time of marriage than grooms and their parents, respectively (354).Huber, Brad R. - New cross-cultural perspectives on marriage transactions, 2011 - 1 Variables

    This article refines previous research on marriage transactions and offers descriptions of new types of marriage transactions. First, the authors examine the frequency and distribution of marriage transactions. Second,the authors use a bio-cultural approach to examine how differences in male and female reproductive strategies and the kin selection theory are associated with marriage transactions.
