This really resonated with me (only British in the sense of being a dirty colonial and enjoying Douglas Adams and Red Dwarf).
As an amateur biologist I’ve often pondered the very point they bring up in the video, that almost unilaterally in nature it is the males that put on the bright colors and the fancy plumage to attract mates and yet in humans (the only species to my knowledge with the ability to pick their plumage) it’s the inverse. There’s even a species of fish in Africa whose scientific name is Nanochromis transvestitus because it’s the females who have the brighter colors. Food for thought.
My proverbial hat is off to all those men of antiquity who so accurately portrayed Shakespeare’s leading ladies. You lucky bastards. 😉
