In order to accept evolution, don't you have to accept that human beings are mere creatures? An idea like AWALT doesn't have to be a way of looking at women as some lesser species, it's simply accepting the nature of women. Men and women have different roles in preserving the human species. Doesn't that make men and women different? I agree that we're all human, we all have feelings, we all feel happiness and sorrow, but we've developed differently and I think we feel those feelings in different ways.
"True love" doesn't exist. A monogamous LTR doesn't inherently promote a better human species. Hypergamy does. From an evolutionary viewpoint, doesn't AWALT make sense?
