After reading the article by Martin, I had to open the textbook from my Genetics class and read how sexual reproduction was explained in it.
Text: Genetics by Robert J. Brooker
Male gametes, or sperm cells, are relatively small and usually travel far distances to reach the female gamete. The mobility of the male gamete is an important characteristic, making it likely that it will come in close proximity to the female gamete. Compared to sperm cells, the female gamete, known as the egg cell, or ovum, is usually very large and nonmotile. These gametes fuse with each other in the process of fertilization to begin the life of a new organism.
Do you think that there are hidden stereotypes within this explanation?
