sex terminology 

HAHAHAHA I love this book that, instead of AMAB and AFAB, uses the terms "spermite" and "eggite"

@georgespolitzer Castration: An Abbreviated History of Western Manhood by Gary Taylor. has some good bits!

@garfiald
You just reminded me of this scene from Mass Effect 3, where Matriarch Aethita confesses to Shepard that she's Liara's father.
"You mean her other mother?"
"No. I didn't pop her out."
"Sorry. If you were human you'd both be called her mother, regardless of which one of you gave birth."
"Well I'm not human, am I? Anthropocentric bag of dicks."

This scene stuck with me and made me realize how much terminology is actually based on tradition rather than science.
