Well let me ask you something....from what I have learned, females in the animal kingdom have a wi ...
Ah! Well thats easy.
Well what you are talking about is courtship. And lola no i'm afraid I won't bore you with specifics but I will quote some easy examples to simply explain it to you that the animal kingdom is not as nice as you suggest anyone who studies it would describe easily in these few words "survival of the fittest" you know Darwin, it's a good read.
1- the lovely ducks we feed on the pond. Yup, the serial rapists, they have a corkscrew penis, they rape the females so much they had to evolve cryptic vaginas, yup its try again google scholar is helpful. It's an evolutionary fight, where females make their vaginas more cryptic or they will be forced to have unwanted off spring. Check the sundance festival for "green porno" there are great videos on there.
2-flies, the males inject the female with a chemical after having sex so they will not have sex with other males, it reduces their libido.
3- spiders, the male blocks up the entrance with a sort of glue.
4- lions, yahhh so cute, no, new alpha lions take over kill all the babies.
5- Most species have "sneak mating" where the males who can't keep a female/ or get one simply have sex with her quickly, in most cases (see squid research in japan)
6-Sneak mating is even found in humans! Whattttttt!? Yup, it's true check the latest porn research, where males prefer male/female porn in comparison to others, and when watching female/multiple-males porn that they will last longer and ejaculate more as in their subconsciously they want to be the one fathering the children and passing on our genes.
7- In a burning house fire if you sisters children and brothers children are in the house at equal points you will first save your sisters children... been done several times, it is because subconsciously you know that your sister is a mother so the kids are definitely hers whereas your brother, who's to know.
All of these examples are easily found and there has been a lot of research, i'd say just read Richard Dawkins "gene expression", it will give you a nice easy summary, basically even when we are altruistic and nice we are doing it for the benefit of our genes, even animals that are in a group are being selfish so much research done on this. So we are seen as inheritable selfish.
So if you think for even one instance females have the ultimate choice you are severely wrong, scientifically speaking we are here (everything on this earth) to copulate and pass on your genes, so you will do everything possible to do this, especially in the animal kingdom where human morals do not exist.
Sorry, took me a while to write all of this out, I can easily find out more, but it's been two years since i've touch on this topic so I feel a little rusty...
I always feel a tad depressed pointing out the facts like this with no emotions, we are of course animals, our genes still drives us however much we disagree. However unlike other animals we have human morals that advance us beyond our nature (nature vs nurture debate), so it gives us no excuse.
I feel like we have gone off topic, but I hope this helps you ^_^
