Animated movies and their biological inaccuracies

November 19th, 2007     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

I’m loving this New York Times piece about how Hollywood’s animated films often get biology and its related sex roles all wrong:

Well, male honeybees don’t have stingers, for the simple anatomical reason that a bee’s stinger is a modified version of an ovipositor, the distinctly feminine organ through which a female insect lays her eggs…

…Must even obligately female creatures like worker bees and soldier ants be given sex change surgery, too?
