    Hi Vincent,

    Just buzzin ' in here,
    Interesting topic !!
    Butta, doesn 't what you and Chris wrote mean that we can assume there
    are ' gender based memes ' !?
    I mean, can you assume a gender bias for memes !?
    After all, assuming that offspring receiving high male parental investment
    would mean ' receiving high male gender related memes ' does it not !?

    An old issue is looking us right in the face,...

    Best regards,

    Very interesting.
    Can one assume, or does the study consider that offspring receiving high
    male parental investment conduct high mpi themselves?
    Maybe all they get is the appearance of high mpi from being well looked
    after, and subsequently get the females regardless of how they then behave
    as parents.
    I don't know if that problematises your idea or not....
