It is certain that humans are animals and that we have instincts, (drives?), etc., but once we get past this common ground assumption, things are less clear. Example: Not all human males/females exhibit the same presumably biologically embedded behavioral tendencies as a majority do. So it's not accurate to simply say, "Males... this", "females ... that." Also, socialization (enculturation, indoctrination...) remains about as powerful a force in human culture / society / behavior as any other -- at least / perhaps(?).

This stuff is complicated--or, at least, complex. Let us use care not to present it as if it were all sorted out and final.
