Sex in the Mirror
“Three Women,” Reviewed: Lisa Taddeo’s Book Puts Sex in the Mirror | The New Yorker
In some cases, there was prolonged courting; sometimes the courting was closer to grooming; but mostly, the stories ended in the stammering pulses of orgasm. There was complexity and beauty and violence even, in the way the women experienced the same event. In these ways and more, it was the female parts of an interlude that, in my eyes, came to stand for the whole of what longing in America looks like. To say someone always gets what she wants is to detach her from human experience, as the ability to get what one wants is necessarily bound by geography, the law, the wills of other people, or banal technical difficulties. What appears to be a straightforward relationship—I want something that I can or cannot have—branches off into hypotheticals and counterfactuals, compromise and denial and acquiescence.
The genetic basis of sex determination in grapes
Sex-links  are crossbred chickens whose color at hatching is differentiated by sex, thus making chick sexing an easier process. Sex-links come in several varieties. As hybrids of laying or dual-purpose breeds infused with extra vigor via heterosis , sex-links can be extremely good egg-layers which often produce eggs a year or more depending on the quality of care and feed. The color of their eggs vary according to the mix of breeds, and blue-green eggs are possible.
Sex linked is a trait in which a gene is located on a sex chromosome. In humans, the term generally refers to traits that are influenced by genes on the X chromosome. This is because the X chromosome is large and contains many more genes than the smaller Y chromosome. In a sex-linked disease, it is usually males who are affected because they have a single copy of X chromosome that carries the mutation. In females, the effect of the mutation may be masked by the second healthy copy of the X chromosome.
