Gender Genetics



Stop!

Before you give me your high school genetics explanation about how there are only two genders, here’s some stuff you probably didn’t learn in the 10th-grade biology class:

  • Mendel cooked his data.
  • There is evidence to support that eye color is determined by at least fifteen gene pairs. Let me know when you’ve worked out the Punnett squares for that.
  • Phenotypes do not always match genotypes.
  • Genetic cross-over happens a lot.
  • Humans are not peas.
  • Your HS biology teacher probably only had two weeks to teach a very complicated subject. A lot of corners were cut.

Consider that before attempting to explain gender genetics to me.
