Jesus this is absolutely crazy lol. What shocks me the most isn't even the 720 sexes story, it's the fact that "if you merge 2 of them they can transmit knowledge to each other ?" what kind of witchery is this

actually, there are more than only two sexes in humans if we consider the many different cases of intersex people  and people with chromosomal "abnormalities". also, sex can be considered as a spectrum since so many variables other than genitals and chromosomes are at play (such as hormones and genes). take a look at this chart that I found in an article of the Scientific American:

I find it really fascinating how many factors go into determining our sex and how many possible (but rare) combinations can result from them.

Thank you for posting this infograph. I think many people just aren't aware of all the possible variance and this explains it so beautifully

Why do I feel this is modern day hoax for some random zoo to get promo?

Like...wtf? How do you classify a new species with 720 different sexes? Lol this is such a flop satire article I feel...

As a scientist i just laughed :ladyhaha: Imagine putting all your hard work into something and then people on the internet say that it's flop satire :ladyhaha: But on the serious note - it is 100% science-based research, nothing suspicious here.
