In my sex psychology class, we were talking about evolutionary psychology and theories of male and female mate selection.
"Evolutionarily, males are more hunting oriented, while women are more gathering oriented."
Yeah, I get it. In hunter-gatherer society predating Western civilization, men were the hunters. Woman gathered.
But let's take that theory to the bar. When at a bar, I suppose the theory is that a woman sits around waiting for the man to drop by and "hunt" her (hit on, offer a drink, or otherwise harrass). But I wouldn't say that I really gather the men. I might take a survey of the selection, yes. But isn't that in itself hunting? I mean, you're narrowing down your prey. And don't men do the same? Or do they spot the weakest one and pounce?
Guys, what do you do at the bars? How does it compare to hunting?
Ladies... would you say you "gather"?
