Stop trolling the reference is at the bottom of the page. Mikey (talk) 22:15, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, they specifically examine GDE based on various predictors relating to intelligence and education, and do not comprehensively compare different causes. They also do not say trade-off theory is "the" leading explanation, but "a leading evolutionary explanation". They way you cited it is wrong, or I am missing the part of the paper you are referring to and would kindly ask you to point me to it. Other explanations may for example be social epistasis disruption, hypergamy, degeneracy etc. The leading cause of female GDE is probably infertility. Bibipi (talk) 23:46, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
