My daughter, a budding crazy cat lady, & I have been getting down with Shelia's Catstravaganza. There will likely be a copy of Feline Groovy under the Christmas tree this year. And speaking of kids & crazy... you know how some kids just need attention? Doesn't matter if it's bad or good attention. Funny how some people never grow out of that.

Anyway, I've got to run, pick up my kiddo and take her to see the Grinch. Will be listening on the mobile app. I LOVE this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar 4:09pm Jeff Moore:

Also... while Dr. Ford's testimony may not have been sufficient to meet the evidentiary standards for a determination of guilt at a criminal trial... what was going on was not a criminal trial, it was a job interview.

What made it crystal clear, though, that Kavanaugh is absolutely unqualified to sit on any bench, Supreme or lower, was his unhinged angry rant, filled with rancor and nutty conspiracy theories. The very counterexample of the judicial temperament.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Michael 98145:

= Linda signed to Arista in 1975 and released her debut album for the company, "Not A Little Girl Anymore," later that year. The album yielded a massive international hit in the form of a disco-fied version of "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)" originally recorded by soul singer Betty Everett in 1964. Linda's rendition peaked at Number Six in the UK singles chart. =

What a station! Learn something new every day : "Some frogs, such as the African Reed Frog have been found to change gender, from female to male, when in environments low in male population. There is no evidence currently that the majority of frog species are capable of this change."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

@djsheilab gender and sex are different, so the sexual reproductive capabilities do not define gender, to answer your request

Parthenogenesis is reproduction from an unfertilized ovum. Hermaphrodites produce both gametes and fertilization occurs just as it would with two sexes.

  5:53pm grtyvr:

asexual reproduction is reproduction in the absence of gametes (egg/sperm). For example simple cell division is asexual reproduction. If there are cells that combine to reproduce then that is sexual reproduction. Some organisms can produce both gametes (flowers for instance often contain both pestles and stamen, the organs that produce the plants gametes) and some animals can too (slugs).

But the answer to the original question, if I understood it correctly:
If you need a partner to reproduce, that’s “sexual reproduction”
If you can reproduce all by yourself, that’s “asexual reproduction”
