It's Okay To Be Smart : It’s about a lot more than X and Y… evolution insists on a balance. If you want to learn more about this bit of evolutionary theory, there’s some suggestions in the description. Leave a comment and let me know what you thought of this week’s video!

eyewars : 50% Male 50% Female 0% Anything else.

ToneyCrimson : We need sex robots for those seals..poor guys :( They dont even have hands!

F.B.I : 49.999% male 49.999% female 00.002% Attack Helicopters

Ponderer Of Pointless Dreams : 49% Female 49% Male 2% Tumblr

ElDariATツ : 50% **Thanos intensifies**

Rocio Dos Santos : Being human is just too damn difficult. I quit.

A Buzzed Whaler : Elephant incels.

Remmy : Is purple people eater: Eats purple people or Is purple and eats people

Mr. Dr. Genius : 0:43 You changed your clothes just so you could make that joke.

0prahTV : all I got from this is that I'll never get laid

OUTRAW mf : I can't believe you had to point out that you were talking about sex and not gender. Are we really in danger of offending the trans elephant seal community

Martie B. : Well, if there was a 1:10 male to female ratio, like in the first example, a large part of the population would end up being half-siblings and the gene pool would finally make a circle due to incest. It's no wonder it's being balanced out this way.

The Living Skit : 0:57 that made me cringe reeeeeal bad

binky2819 : "We're talking about biological sex, not gender". Our society has become so sensitive to the point where we have to clarify we're talking about biological sex in a video about the two biological sexes.

Emil Steensen : What... sex and gender is the same in 99%< of the population. Event hough there are some transgender (male-to-female and vice versa) in a population, less than 1% of the population, it's not correct to say that biological sex is not the same as gender (identity), since it applies to virtually all of the population. To say that biological sex is independent of gender identity is plainly false from a scientific standpoint, a psychological standpoint, biological standpoint and philosophical standpoint. When 99%< of the population is either biological male/female identifies as a male/female, expresses as male/female and have sexual preferences as male/female, biological sex and gender identity can't be said to be different from each other. That is the general rule, with the rare exception of those who consider themselves transgender - which I'am all for that they do, more power to them. And don't get me wrong, I'm not against transgenders in any way, it's just that's the "exception" to the rule, and not that biological sex and gender is by default not the same!

TheImpetus : Fun fact: we have twice as many female ancestors as male ancestors. 20% of the men slept with 80% of the women. We are elephant seals...

Jacob J : Thanks for clarifying sex not gender... because I almost got confused

l555444333222 L5K : Why are so many men pretending to be women?

Sheldon Robertson : If the bachelor seals catch their own food they aren't mooching. Mooching only, and can only, refers to animals which aquire resources without exerting labor or participating in trade. Being unlucky in love is not mooching. Leaches are moochers. Male seals are not.

Vortex597 : Gender and sex are the same thing don’t even try change my mind

ディアスジェレミー : 0:24 The entirely of the scene is filled with... ... *_Pimps, Emos and Incels_* Who else agrees?


Sai Gungurthi : I love the elephant seal drawings 👌🏾😂

Ana Rosero : I don't understand why people care so much about how other people see themselves :s You have a penis but you want to act, dress, etc. girly? Go ahead, its your body! It's really not that complicated. Live and let live!

Ali107 : Why anything I just learn in school pops in the recommendation after!? Youtube, Are you Spying me?

92Iowa Country : And the 4 percent of elephant seals are ALL NAMED CHAD!!!!!

zombiedude245 : if one male gets more females..wouldn't it be natural if the other males become gay?

Evariste Galois : 0:12 lol, I can relate to those elephant seals on a spiritual level ... I'll probably never get a chance to reproduce 😢

Steve : Seals be like... I'm joining MGTOW

Rys Rys : Its nOT TRUE - there is around 60% born male and only 40% female ! Woman live longer so they need to always choose only younger male never older !

Babyboodle : 0:56 - I appreciate this addition.

Paul Watson : "We're talking about biological sex, not gender." *rolls eyes*

Derek T. : Because of one child policy

The Living Embodiment WEIRD! : I'm a Male elephant seal 😂 and NOT the lucky 4%


EOM Guel : Fairly good video, although claiming that evolution is all about offspring is a little too simplistic. There are at least two factors that drive evolution, which are, yes, reproduction, but also survival. From a biological point of view, a small population of hundreds-of-years-old pine trees that haven't produced many offspring in a long time are just as successful as some crazy multiplying rodents. None has gone extinct and therefore they're both still in the game. The same could be said for some social species, like many insect colonies, in which there is only a few reproducing individuals, while the rest actively contribute to the survival of the next generation and whose genes are indirectly passed on.

Ricky : 0:58 will generate alot of ...ummh...discussion

Torva Messorem : It's simple. 1 man can only pay so much child support. Nature picked up on this and created more men to more equally distribute the pain&suffering.

Jewberto : You look a bit like Ted Danson

Incognito FLA : Did you catch that? "We are talking about biological sex, NOT gender." Way to shove this bull-crap down the throats of our innocent children. Indoctrination will not work in my household!

GD Duhpowah : Hmmm Hhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm More male? Pretty sure more females than male in the world XD

G2000 v2 : Simple answer : There aren't.

trending games : There aren't equal numbers of males and females health is a huge factor in it the less heathy you are the higher chance you have of having a female A couple of years back when Japan had it's nuclear reactors destroyed by a Typhon it saw a increase in females being born This is nature's way of keeping the population in balance I honestly think you've should've done more research before doing this video

Goshika S : I have a doubt. This is about the video - Explaining Lunar eclipse and the SUPER BLOOD MOON! "We are seeing every sunrise and sunset reflected back at us at the same time." I don't get this point. What do you mean by this line ?

Max Bidzinskyi : Awesome video and poem! Also, 5:52 - poetry...))

Talhaa Ahmed : Not sure if I should be happy or sad about how he had to clarify ‘biological sex’ not gender 🤦🏽‍♂️

David Hill : God is real.

Miguel Alfonzo : Are you anthropologist

Meme Chef : Elephant seals are like most fortnite players: virgins for life
