...did I get that right?
Love this. Good old fashioned nerdy fun for these horrific modern times.
Bit late to the the party, but, once again, an amusing and illuminating perspective.
However, on this point, I think there's some reason to argue you're somewhat wide of the mark:
Frederick: "So, people with ovaries develop all the eggs they’ll ever have before they’re born."
Wikipedia: "However, although this process begins at prenatal age, it stops at prophase I. In late fetal life, all oocytes, still primary oocytes, have halted at this stage of development, called the dictyate. After menarche, these cells then continue to develop, although only a few do so every menstrual cycle."
To be precise, adult human females -- AKA, "women" -- only "produce" a few ova every month from menarche to menopause. Outside of those "markers", those individuals technically don't qualify as females or as women. Hope that helps ... 😉🙂
Though, en passant, it seems that gametogenesis has to qualify as one of the most complicated and convoluted biological processes in all anisogamous species, arguably more so in females than in males.
I learnt something powerful, that a woman, well, a female human baby to be specific, produces all the eggs she er sorry it will need for life just before it is born. I was always under the impression that the attending doctor filled her ovaries er its ovaries up when they were assigning said babies sex.
Funny, sad, informative; a bit of sanity in the big soup of crazy. Thank you.
Made me laugh out loud. This is the way to fight these crazy ideas. 👍
Biology, the study of plants and their parasites.
I enjoyed this more than any other biology lecture except maybe when the creationist in evolution class would try to nail the professor, who was cut from the same cloth as you!
I wonder if the term "anisogamy denier" will take off soon?
"I didn't type this. My fingers did" What a great ending! Really shows the idiocy of these woke leftists.
The perfect way to start the day. Thank you :D
Refreshingly funny, intelligent, and precise. I just read this out loud to my 14-year-old son and he giggled all the way through it. At a time when so many objective truths are being called into question, or worse vilified, It is wonderful to come across a gem like this piece. I am grateful for your neurons including the soma, axon, dendrites, and the chemicals that transfer between them.
The last line is priceless.
Educational and humorous. Love it!
👏 BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO 👏 and thank you
Sharing with everyone I know! Even on Facebook, that shot get me canceled 🤭
