Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Evopsyc is also bullshit. No way to disentangle culture.

Culture-centered stories are so different, right?

In a practical sense, frequently working models, beliefs do not have to be very correct to be instrumental, useful. Especially when it comes to taking action.

Well yeah, just-so stories serve a useful function for people who don't want to work things out for themselves. They come in many guises :
"Women are like this because Transactional Analysis"
"Women are like this because Daddy told me"
"Women are like this because Bible"
"Women are like this because Evolution"

Having a code of conduct based on any of these is likely to give more success than sitting around worrying about what women really want.
