Also, yo, hi, how are we all? Had a few follows the past week or so so hello to all.
Contrary to popular belief, the presence or absence of certain sex organs isn’t the determining factor when deciding which animal of a species is female and which is male. In fact, biologists don’t use sex chromosomes either. They actually rely on the size of an animal’s gametes — sperm in males and oocytes in females. As the rule goes, females are the sex that contribute the largest gametes, whereas males are the sex that contribute the smallest gametes and therefore expend the least amount of energy on producing these cells. So, in this particular instance of sex-role reversal, the convention still applies: the female in these species of insect produces the largest gametes — egg cells. She simply also happens to sport a penis that she introduces into the male’s vagina during copulation.
Science is awesome.
I’ve seen this mentioned before but Jeff makes me feel “okay” about not using a todo!
When did GPOY fall by the wayside and get confused with a selfie? DO THE INTERNET RIGHT.
This headline and article had me fuming. They focus the readers attention on appearance again - rather than the good the person (in this case, Anne) is doing. I think it’s disgusting how newspapers pick us up on little details such as our makeup - rather that just report good deeds. Does anyone remember seeing the articles about the actress who saved people from drowning, yet all they focused on was her nipples that slipped out as she pulled them from the water?
Stop focusing on appearance and forming your articles in such a fashion to gain attention, it belittles the good that others do.
We really need to mention her lack of make-up? Really? She flew to Tennessee to spend the day with patient’s in a children’s hospital. Let’s focus on that.
It’s the Daily Mail, need I say more?
I guess you’ll only get that if you’re from the UK
