No, it's not, which is why I didn't say that. But, spawning as a reproductive strategy is still very much bound by these behaviors, and my point about 'from humans to starfish' was that everyone, from humans to starfish (not sure why you limited it to behaviors of female humans, but you may have mistook my reference to the Sexy Son Hypothesis), is very actively engaged in behavior that will improve their chances at successfully reproducing. Pointing to a lot of purported altruistic behaviors usually reveals that they aren't nearly as altruistic as you'd think. And, awesomely enough, human society is complex enough to be so built past this point that saying "I'm only interested in biology because it's an intellectual pursuit and I associate those with intelligence and intelligence with money and money with success and success with having lots of sex", still leaves you somewhere interesting without all that reductionism.chenille wrote:Reproduction is not all about guys luring babes. Even if you're going to ignore asexual animals and ones that simply release gametes into the water, behaviors of female humans and starfish are some obvious exceptions you might want to consider.
At the risk of getting too sidetracked here, I'm just going to say 'Yes, biologically speaking, organisms are only really interested in reproduction'. Humans are neat and unique insofar as being at least the bearers of a trait that is potentially outside the realm of biological pressures, and that trait is 'sapience'.
