Although a mixed strategy can never be evolutionary stable in a truly asymmetric contest, examples show that mixed strategies can satisfy the weaker criterion of neutral stability. This paper shows that such examples are rare, and, generically, a mixed strategy is unstable. We apply our result to the battle of the sexes between males and females over the raising of offspring.
