I don't know why you emphasize females choosing attractive males, rather than vice versa. After all, this is clearly one of the things that males do.

More thoughts later.

My emphasis was on Motherx. If her daughter was to gain improved appearance perhaps her best chance would be for Motherx to choose an attractive mate. If Fatherx does the choosing I didn't think there was much chance of the daughter's appearance improving.

Why not?

I'm still not seeing it. Females as well as males vary in attractiveness; males as well as females can exercise choice. And I don't see why you think that that should be different for earlier humans or pre-humans.
