Hot flushes, night sweats, mood
swings - menopause and its side
effects an all be blamed on men,
experts suggest
Evolutionary geneticists from Canada' s
Mcmaster University say men' s tendency
to choose younger mates meant fertility
became pointless for older women.
In PLUS Computational Biology, they
say this ventually led to the menopause.

Yeah, it's not their ovaries running out of eggs or anything like that... clearly men are the force for negative occurances here.

I'm seeing a sudden rise of anti-feminism posts. Not complaining oranything, just noticing.

Menopause happens around the same age that people were generally dead several hundreds of years ago. Maybe females evolved to not need eggs after the age of 50 (Or there abouts) because they got used to being dead!

oooor maybe it's because the older we get the higher the likelihood of our deaths, and the lower the possibility of reproduction, however, the younger you are (past puberty into adolescence and just past it), the higher the likelihood of reproduction and fertility (for both sexes, not just women), therefore, i wouldn't say menopause is caused by this, it was most likely around since man had evolved to its' current state, but, it can be said that humanity has become more biologically driven to attempt to mate and reproduce at these ages.....that, ladies and gentlemen, is a logical conjecture, i actually cannot even think of the words to try to show how idiotic their logic is....

Just from reading this content, and not the article itself;

I love how it's neglected to mention that such choice kept humanity alive.
Older Parents have a shorter lifespan than younger parents (obviously).
It was necessary, when early human society consisted solely of men out working and hunting/gathering food and women staying at home to care for the young, for mothers to be able to look after their children solely by themselves for long periods of time.
I would rather know I have a fit 25 year old guarding my offspring than some rickety old 60 year old (who more than likely would not have survived childbirth anyway).
As a result; any 'long fertility' genes that exist in women were lost as men predominantly mated only with young, fertile women.

They got noone to blame but themselves, nobody wants an ugly ass old bitch.
User avatar #14 - cryingchicken ONLINE (06/15/2013) [-]
OR, OR, OR... Because of women being more fertile when young and less fertile after menopause men naturally chose younger mates.

If you think about this logically for any length of time you will see that it is utter ********
1.Evolution isn't affected by what time in your life you have children.
2.Evolution doesn't care if something is pointless as long as it doesn't increase mortality rate before childbirth or reduces likelihood of conception for example tailbones.

If I am wrong I apologise but there seems to be no proof or logic behind this theory
