    #2 WMDKitty Well he was right. I watched it. He goes on about sex this and sex that. It’s entirely about sex and genes and more sex. Click bait, so I assumed, was a bait and switch tactic. This title was spot on. He didn’t switch to something like a tirade on the lack of variety at his local theater or how spider legs get crippled by mad biologists with tweezers or something. Such honesty is refreshing on the internet.

    [birgerjohansson, pretty much anyone on the internet already knows that, and you’re getting excited on the internet as if you’re breaking news]

    You would have, anyway. But hey, urgent news is urgent.

    (How would we decide what to do, otherwise? ;) )

    John Morales @ 7
    I did not realise your time zone was up and awake still.
    Over here, it happened 5 in the morning, causing the senior politicians to get up early and rush to the offices.

    What we (non-americans) can do is, push the politicians to make real, serious sanctions (the British will know what I mean).
    BTW sorry to go OT.

    Maleness being a disease. Is that an inside joke? I didn’t hear anything from your class except perhaps the whir of eyes rolling.

    Why do you insist on using cis women’s body parts as insults? Do you think they are that horrible? Do you hate women that much that you must use hurtful language? Or do you just not give a fuck about women and the fact that you are hurting them?
    People here have already told you that they find gendered insults to be hurtful. Why do you insist on continuing to hurt them?
    Do you not see that being dismissive of the hurt you are causing to women makes you just as bad as a misogynist, an incel, an MRA, or an MGTOW?
    Do you insist on using racially charged or ableist language when people tell you that it is hurtful as well?

    Thanks for that, PZ. No-one asked you for the explanation of the sex ratio in Acrea encedon? I guessed a very high level of sibling mating, but apparently not: once thought to be a “driving W chromosome”, but now attributed to “cytoplasmic bacteria”. So now I’m guessing that since such bacteria can only pass down to grandchildren through daughters, it increases the fitness of the bacteria to kill off male fetuses, so that the female caterpillars have less competition for food.
