Hello, everyone. I'm not sure if this counts as "homework", since it's just a random question I have, but I don't think the topic of this thread is "deep" enough to be in another forum category, so I hope I placed this in the right place. Having said that, I wanted to ask the following.: Are insects that reproduce only asexually sexless/≈genderless, all females, or what? I suspect that they are all females, because if I'm correct, it is only the female gender which has ovums, but the ovums do not need to be fertilized for reproduction to occur. Am I (100%) correct (including my reasoning)? Any input would be GREATLY appreciated! P.S. I put the "≈" to the left of "genderless", because, according to Wiktionary.org's sex and gender pages, "since the 1960s, it is increasingly common—particularly in academic contexts—to distinguish between sex and gender, the former being taken as inherent biological distinctions and the latter as constructed social and cultural ones." Basically, I am only referring to the sex (unless gender is interpreted as a synonym for sex). P.P.S. Also, I didn't use the forum template, since I don't think my question fits it.
