We should try to make the pie bigger rather than fighting over slices of the pie

It's totally possible to increase the sex ratio to 5:1 or 10:1 female:male. We have the technology and the wealth to afford it in the first world. It's just a matter of having the political and cultural will to do it. Once the government gives the okay, the market can make it happen. We just need to legalize human female trafficking.

Not only can we all have multiple chicks, we can all have beautiful chicks. There's no shortage of, say, Labrador retrievers, right? They started out as feral wolves but were bred to be more amenable to being pets. We could do the same with women.

How their breeding for agreeableness would affect their sons' personalities, I'm not sure. Maybe we wouldn't breed them for personality after all; maybe we would just breed them for beauty and smarts, and let patriarchy handle keeping their behavior under control. There are a lot of animals that were bred for their soft, beautiful fur rather than personality, because they don't need a good personality if they're just going to be kept in a cage till they're slaughtered.

You clearly dont understand reproductive dynamics, if there are more females than males the average reproductive success for males would bd higher.

Thus the equilibrium is to have 50% being born male.

The males that are destined to failure can be transitioned to female or euthanized.

And no even if 1 billion fertile females would appear magically you should still fight to maximize your reproductive success and prevent your enemies (other males) from reproducing.

Unless you are fucking ovulating females daily you are not maximizing your reproductive success, a single male can make over 100 females pregnant.

Yeah but there's a big difference between having 0 mates and having one mate. One mate is enough to continue your genetic line; zero mates means it's over for your line.

The step from 1 to 2 mates is almost as big, you only start to hit dominishing returns when you reach 5.
