something i've noticed a lot in the biology/genetics sphere is feminist women bragging about women having "more DNA" than men

the X chromosome has 1,100 genes
the Y chromosome has 78 genes

so women have 2,200 sex genes and men have 1,178 >:) this makes women superior!#girlpower
however, they fail to recall that around the same time that stem cells differentiate, every cell in the female body randomly inactivates one of their X chromosomes (lyonization)

this can be observed in calico cats
orange color in cats is found in a gene on the X chromosome
calico cats are mostly female for this reason
that is why calico cats color patterns are unique

the earlier the inactivation, the larger clusters of orange (1st)
the later, the smaller (2nd)

Et 30 % des exploitations compte maintenant une femme parmi les associés
Et ça va fortement augmenter dans les années à venir. Pourquoi ? C’est mécanique : en second cycle professionnel d’enseignement agricole, les filles représentent 57% des effectifs !…
