MAYBE .........JUST MAYBE....It's because, it is a male dominated world! Perhaps this also applies to the insect and animal kingdom... The male sits back somewhere with his feet kicked up waiting for the female to bring things to him to wait on him hand and foot, catering to his every need....etc etc..... LOL LOL LOL!

Hey I know this is not quite on subject, but how does one tell a female from a male Bee? Is it different with different kinds of Bee's?
