Koalitionsbildung und deren Schwerpunkt bei Männchen und Weibchen

3 Gedanken zu “Koalitionsbildung und deren Schwerpunkt bei Männchen und Weibchen

    • Die „leaders“ sind in dem Fall aber auch Frauen, ein intrasexueller Konflikt.

      „But Hannibal and her colleagues have discovered that subordinate females can override the status quo. To do this, female macaques form alliances with family, friends or both. These alliances help females maintain or increase their social rank and compete for resources. A female who wants to challenge those higher up needs this help, says Hannibal.“

      Clan hebt den Status der Damen, notfalls mit Gewalt. Das kennen wir aus primitiveren menschlichen Gesellschaften. Erst am Samstag im TV: „Der Pate“, dort wird das schön gezeigt. Auch in D macht sich das wieder breit.

      Im Westen ist diese Stammesbildung aktuell noch durch „peer groups“ ersetzt, die mit Shitstorms und pseudointellektuellem Patriarchatsgelaber, den Status ihrer Weibchen zu heben trachten.

      Die Ähnlichkeit hat aber auch Grenzen:
      „Insubordination events were more likely if the lower-ranked female was older. They were most likely if the subordinate outweighed the dominant female by 7 kilograms and the dominant female had no family allies. The more allies the subordinate female had, and the more days her mother was present in the group, the more often she would exhibit insubordinate behaviour.“

      Also kurz: je dicker, je älter und je größer die Familie, desto widerborstiger ist das Weibchen in der Rangfolge. Ich bezweifle, dass man das auf Menschen übertragen kann 🙂

  1. In societies (regardless of marriage system) in which men’s sources of power are
    unpredictable, and women have sufficient resources to be independent, men cannot always
    control women. Resource distribution, coalitions for mate seeking, inbreeding avoidance, and
    nepotism (familial coalitions)—all are important in marriage patterns. In such societies,
    either straightforward polygyny or serial monogamy (really serial polygyny) results. Serial
    polygyny occurs, for example, among societies as disparate as the Ache of Paraguay and the
    contemporary United States.

    Women’s coalitions, resource control, and political power

    Female–female coalitions in primates, including humans, tend to center on parental
    effort (e.g., Irons, 1983) and on cooperation to protect females from male–female conflicts
    of interest (e.g., Smuts, 1992). Implicit in the contrast between the bmating effortQ
    emphasis of male coalitions and the bparental effortQ emphasis of female coalitions is that
    the amount of resources under consideration differs—mating effort can turn huge amounts
    of resources to reproductive profit; typically, parental effort cannot (Low, 2000b, Chap. 3).
    Female parental effort coalitions tend to be among kin or (in humans) co-wives. Both
    bpositiveQ (food gathering) and bnegativeQ (e.g., reproductive suppression) parental effort
    coalitions exist. Reproductive suppression can have bloody outcomes. Marmoset females may
    kill other females’ offspring (Digby, 1995; Lazaro-Perea et al., 2000). In several baboons,
    females in dominant matrilines harass subordinates (e.g., Wasser, 1983) and sometimes kill
    their offspring.
