I don't think (short of a time machine) we will ever fully understand that dynamic. But given humans almost magnetic attraction to the exotic.....I can see why Neanderthals might have done well pulling the chicks.If anatomically modern Homo Sapiens really did have a non matching chromosome set as has been the prevailing view (right?), then we are left with the conclusion that the hybrids who passed on the gene were all females, right?
And if that is the case, then the modern humans almost had to have raised these children to have the genes present so widely in West Asians and Europeans?
So, the level of social responsibility in the 40 000s BCE was (thankfully) much greater than that of the present day booty call?
