The Egg and the Sperm: How Science Has Constructed a Romance Based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles

In our writing class, we read an essay called “The Egg and the Sperm: How Science Has Constructed a Romance Based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles.” It was written by a woman and is about sperm being treated as superior in most texts and the egg as inferior. She feels that stereotypes and sexism have altered science. Most of the guys in the class felt that she whined too much. One guy said the following:
“I think it was all a waste of ink. I mean, she could have been cooking.”

    The egg is not inferior, it’s just in most male/female activities, the man does alot of the work while the woman just kinda lays there. Hehe
