quote:Originally posted by cuso4You're right Donnah. I've been doing this kind of genetics in school.In cats, one gene for coat colour is present on the X chromosome but not on the Y chromosome. This gene has two alleles, orange(B) and black(b). Female cars that are heterozygous have tortoiseshell coats (orange coats with dark patches). So you can have:X(B)X(B) - female orange coatX(B)X(b) - female tortoiseshell coatX(b)X(b) - female black coatX(B)Y - male orange coatX(b)Y - male black coatSo a male cat can never have a tortoiseshell coat.Angel
quote:Originally posted by Ians DaddyHahaha. Actually, the true test to differentiate a male zebra from a female is this. The male zebra has stripes on his penis, as the female does not. It works every time.
quote:Originally posted by Ians DaddyOh yes, as do giraffes. Only giraffes have spots on theirs (male) and the females do not. The female's penis has no spots, as the female zebra has no stripes on her penis. However, the male zebra has spots on his vagina and the male giraffe has stripes on his vagina. It's very confusing.

quote:Originally posted by bezoarWe are definitely XX's. But just cause I would have taken shop if I could have (back in the Dark Ages they didn't allow that), doesn't mean I don't like lots of female things too. I just don't know why we should allow our chromasomes to limit us. If you can do the job well, what does it matter what sex you are?Bezoar
quote:Originally posted by bezoarThat's your feeling, based on your perceptions, whatever they might be. For instance, I would prefer a female proctologist because she'll probably have smaller fingers. You might prefer a female due to homophobia. I generally prefer female doctors because they pay more attention to detail, however, I find that males usually make better surgeons. And although your mother will deliver you, there are housedads who can be quite nurturing with their children.Bezoar
