@ftargument "Organized to support" simply means that during reproductive development, the fetus goes down one of two paths, initiated by the presence or absence of the SRY gene.
@ftargument Even if the path is disrupted, or if it is not completed, the fetus still develops towards the completion of one or the other system.
@ftargument There are plenty of cases where certain parts of the reproductive tract do not form completely, such as in cases of Mullerian agenesis, where an XX fetus is born without a complete uterus and cervix.
@ftargument Since the fetus in this case differentiated down the path without SRY activation, and there is no anti-Mullerian hormone present, the fetus still develops a system organized to support large gametes, even if the system is not complete.
