"What were the first organisms to have sex? We may never know the answer, but as Bill Nye explains in this Big Think interview, scientists are very interested in why sexual activity remains so popular in nature beyond the obvious reproductive implications.

"In the case of Mo’ne Davis, (Gaby) Douglas, and countless others, the system failed to foreclose opportunities to these girls as they found ways to break down the doors of racism and sexism. The failures of a system to contain and constrain prompts the backlash and the efforts to preserve the order of White things." --+David J Leonard
