NEURAL ECONOMY AND THE FEMALE MIND
—“Women turn more conservative when they have children.”—Martin
Or put another way, women evolved to carry a cognitive load, and will generate demand for that cognitive load, and the signals to reinforce it, in one way or another until they possess it.
It makes evolutionary sense that women who don’t have children would express ‘care’ to all, then express it more exclusively to their children when they have that “inventory” to worry about (expend their caretaking energies).
So women evolved to carry the cognitive load of caring about proportionality and caretaking almost exclusively (the young short term) while men tend to are about the full spectrum of moral intuitions equally (the tribe long term).
Men demand a cognitive load, but it seems less open to substitution than women. Men, we always have the tribe to defend.
