A common refrain from men is that they have a biological imperative to spread their seed and keep their mates on sexual lockdown as a result of our evolutionary history. The logic goes that since sleeping around and ensuring his mate did not do the same worked really well for a man’s reproductive success in our species’ distant past, men have almost no choice but to repeat that behavior in today’s world.

Uh…you’re putting two different things together that don’t go together.

The first is “biological imperative”. That that exists is simply fact.

The second is “choice”. Men have plenty of “choice” in the matter. All they need, actually, in most cases.

A man’s jealousy in the face of such technology serves little real purpose and should therefore slowly begin to die out as a trait in human males.

Probably will, given a millenia or so. Unless their is government coercion to select mates and breed out the trait, of course.

For men who claim men simply must be hard-wired for jealousy and promiscuity and cannot help themselves, I must ask: you call women the hormonal, illogical gender when you’re literally telling me you cannot help your behavior because of your hormones?

Does any man outside of high school actually try to claim this? I doubt it. Most women would simply laugh at them.
