The Carousel Effect: DNA from Previous Sex Partners Could Affect Future Offspring
If the controversial revelations in Sperm Wars revealing the harsh truths about just how tricky women’s fertility can be and how promiscuous the history of the human species has been were not enough, here’s another bombshell that just dropped. When a woman breaks up with a man she has had sex with, or is a frequent carousel rider, there’s speculation among genetic researchers based on genetic testing that something of her former partners could affect any future offspring she has with her new partner. Call it nature pre-cucking Captain Save-a-Ho.
The idea is referred to as telegony, and has been around since Greek times, but was struck down around a century ago by modern science. However, science is always moving and changing. Shockingly, a new study from Australian researchers and reviewed by English researchers reveals ancient wisdom may challenge the accepted wisdom from the ministers of promiscuity and the pro-carousel brigade. As reported by Medical Daily:
[Telegony] was first proposed by the Greek philosopher Aristotle and was accepted as science until the early 1900s when it was disproved and replaced by more modern genetic theory. Unfortunately, the theory was largely used as a fear tactic to prevent women from copulating with different races or lower classes, but the study suggests the theory may have some elements of truth — for flies, at least.
Pro-feminist propaganda aside, even that article admits the hypothesis may have some legitimacy in humans. It just can’t bring itself to criticize the 1960s idea that women should sleep around as a way of “empowering” themselves. Amazingly, in flies, the traits of males the female has previously mated with can be transmitted to future offspring sired by other males. Dr. Angela Crean, lead researcher on the gene research project a the University of New South Wales in Australia explains:
We found that even though the second male sired the offspring, offspring size was determined by what the mother’s previous mating partner ate. Our new findings take this to a whole new level — showing a male can also transmit some of his acquired features to offspring sired by other males.
Of course, this finding has a long way to go from being proven to be the case in humans. However, just as a Marxist lobotomy removed many of the teachings and ancient wisdom from the Overton Window of acceptable discourse, ideas taken for granted in the Bible that forms the basis of the world’s three major religions, could the traditional prohibitions on female promiscuity be validated once again, this time by science?
What About Mammals
Beyond flies, there is precedent for the effect of telegony occurring in other mammals, the Class humans belong to. Crean continues:
There is no evidence of such effects in humans, but there has not been any research on this possibility in humans. There is a potential for such effects in mammals. For example, there is a lot of fetal DNA in maternal blood during pregnancy, and this could potentially play a role in such effects. There is also evidence in mammals that seminal fluid affects offspring development, so semen from one male could potentially influence the development of eggs fertilized by another male (which is what we think is happening in flies).
So, whether it be demographics showing a dying population (and a spiritually dead one at that) in the West, religious prohibitions on female carousel riding going back 5,000 years, or emerging science showing that female promiscuity might just be affecting the genetic material of future offspring she has with any future Beta male once she gets off the carousel, there are a lot of negative effects when it comes to a culture letting women run wild, well beyond the sexual jungle and disincentive for male participation it creates.
There are tantalizing suggestions that the first father of a woman’s children may determine at least some of the traits of all of her children. It truly could be first come, first served in nature. And another scientific dagger in the heart of women’s lib, beyond the fact Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin revealed any society that does not practice monogamy ultimately declines in his seminal but totally ignored (today) work Sex and Culture. Crean goes on:
We know that features that run in families are not just influenced by the genes that are passed down from parents to their children. Various non-genetic inheritance mechanisms make it possible for environmental factors to influence characteristics of a child. Our new findings take this to a whole new level – showing a male can also transmit some of his acquired features to offspring sired by other males.
Call it nature cucking Betas and men who don’t dominate their partner’s sexuality. This is amazing research, and lends credence to the idea of K-selected societies practicing female chastity while r-selected societies do not. Dr. Stuart Wigby at Oxford University told the press:
This particular mechanism would be unlikely to apply to mammals such as humans because of differences in reproductive physiology compared to insects. However, other researchers have suggest that mechanisms exist that could in principle result in telegony in humans; for example because mothers carry fetal DNA in their blood during pregnancy.
Reality, once again it seems, could be stranger than fiction. Another reason to avoid long term commitments with Tinder and carousel-riding discards, as if a man needed more reasons.
