RT @joshwitten: .@JBYoder @Annaleen Probably also worth noting re: "chicks w dicks" that insect & mammal sex determination basically have nothing in common
.@Annaleen No argument there. And I definitely agree that it’s better to start with more precise language!
.@joshwitten @Annaleen And, as I say, I’m entirely sympathetic to that criticism.
Insects in general are WAY ahead of us, genitalia-wise. MT @daisieclickie: I'm just marveling at the whole mechanism of the gynophore.
Agreed! RT @joshwitten: Frankly, I'm just plain put off by the "one with the 'penis' is in charge" trope being used a lot on this story
Disclaimer on previous tweets: I am, as a rule, in favor of penises.
Also: Arguing it’s not mind-bending enough to say "the female has the penis" is a sign how far that line has moved.
Which: It’s good to have more precise words! But we do make new concepts by extension of existing ones.
I am totally sympathetic to the points made here, but still … didn’t we used to call planets stars?
"When was the last time you found a penis that grew spines, absorbed nutrients…or allowed its owner to get pregnant?”
