A whole different species

Female chromosome has X factor and Why X Marks the Gender. "Effectively there are two different human genomes, one male and one female." Like I've always said, a whole different species.

Trouble is mate is that you Y chromosomers are half and half, with your ickle stunted 'y' next to the tall, powerful and proud 'X'.

Ah but at least we boys can wee standing up without getting our shoes wet. At least some of the time.

Actually, you said that, "They are all witches"!

Err, yes, that too.

I think that I might need a new blog category; Mysoginism.

It's not misogynistic to recognise that men and women are different.

Though, saying "they are all witches" could be construed in that way...

Given that Simon has daughters, I think he's going to have trouble in the long run keeping up this whole 'they're all witches' thing. Anyway, if I didn't know already that it as a big front, I'd be deeply offended. Don't listen to him - he doesn't mean it.

Hmmm - you could be in a lot of trouble when I come down to see you, my lad! Mum
