I have uncovered a certain Joan Roughgarden who attacks sexual selection in a 2004 book, but her premise is awful weak and narrow. And she has not appeared to set the scientific community abuzz with her views. Maybe in time her views will be accepted, but that isnt the case yet.

But also, this from someone who agrees with her fwiw:

Way back when I was but a mere chil' they were still making up 'jus' so' stories ~ and today that field is pretty empty. There are no major geneticists out there dwelling on sexual selection.

Did I tell you about Darwin's trip to the Gallapagos islands? Alone in his cabin, at sea for months, nothing to do but think about.......... well, sexual selection was one of his first topics .......... BTW, he didn't know about DNA!
