Male Chimpanzees Exert Strong Pimp Hand Over Female Chimpanzees

Male Chimpanzees treat Females aggressively to Father More Babies

According to a new study, aggressive male chimpanzees treat females aggressively to force them mate regularly in order to father more babies. The findings of the study have been published in the US journal Current Biology and were based on a long-term study of interactions between chimpanzees in the well-known Gombe National Park in Tanzania.”These results seem to suggest that males are selected to be aggressive toward females to increase their paternity success, which explains why male-female aggression is observed in so many chimpanzee populations”, said first author Joseph Feldblum of Duke University in a statement.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
