I found this in the paper I read, DM 27. 05. 2004
Something of interest !?
There are biological differencies between being a father and being a
mother. For men procreation is from a biological point of view for a
great deal a noncommittal thing.
They have much more choise or and in how far they will take up
responsibilities of fatherhood. They can be a father without even
knowing it, and if they know it, they can deny it or even escape the
They aren 't forced to take up responsibility from within biology and
are thus thrown on what culture provides / dictates for such cases.

' Fathers of a kind ' ( translation).
If so, then ir raises a few fair questions,
_ when began culture !?
and did it start with what men thought they will/ can or might do
in order to raise ( their) children !?
_and if there were no rules did women start something cultural
to bring men into line with what seems a biological inbedded
trait of women !?
I got to search for it, but I have somewhere an article, that says
that monogamy is a women biological trick to keep men into line
with their responsibility towards their children.
