Just about right!

Aren't ant colonies almost entirely female?

Also, ants often coexist with other insects (like aphids) and have been known to exhibit mutually beneficial relationships.

If anything, the analogy with ants is better suited to a pro-femenist, pro-multicultural argument, no?

First, no. Second, no. Third, nope.

I'm pretty sure the first 2 are true (Worker ants being mostly sterile females is something I was taught in high school biology, can't find any scientific sources specifically for that but if you have any to the contrary I'd like to read them. As for ants caring for and living with aphids I've seen various video evidence of this, such as https://youtu.be/LLlE6LIQ41o https://youtu.be/DnpJibC5iA0)

As for why the ant analogy isn't more in line with leftist viewpoints, why not?

Worker ants are "drones", as they're sterile they aren't counted as either male or female due to their utter inability to reproduce.

[–]CumMeMaybe0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

they are still biologically female, though

[–]UnLiberal040 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They also mindlessly work to protect an help no matter what, so they are more equal to each other than fems could possibly produce.

So you’re saying that you prefer a woman in charge of a monarchy with a touch of slavery. Got it.

Correct me if im wrong but arent ants like 80% female and the males sole purpose is fertilizing the queens eggs and then dying? Or am I thinking of bees?



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
