Thia hypothesis just does not make sense.
You need to ping the ‘scientist’ Singh. He doesn’t understand the theory where ‘environment’ plays Deus ex Machina and not the other way around. If men prefer younger women then evolutionary theory would indicate that the environment gave men that urge, no? Men didn’t choose it, but were bred for it because having that trait, ‘going for the young gal’, meant better reproductive success across all generations.
His premise is stupid and sexist and most likely political as he doesn’t understand the Theory of Evolution, but does get feminism. Despite his misapplication, his theory that menopause is caused my men’s preference for younger women fits just as well as the grandma hypothesis. The progeny are served just as well under either one. That’s the inherent tautology of the Theory of Evolution: if we have it, it’s because we need it.
