Subject: the female penis
Scientists have discovered a species of insect where the female has a penis and the male has a vagina.

Curious to see what effect this discovery will have on future developments of gender perception and definition.

I think we've touched on this topic before in a previous discussion but I'd be curious to know how gender is defined in your perception.

The question I have is which one carries the offspring or lays the eggs?

The article says the sex distinction is just based on gamete size. Females are what they are because of their big eggs and males are just so with their little sperm.

The female still carries and deposits eggs.

Gender is all about our impression of whether a person in question is a man or woman.
