Prejudice from male scientists ...
Female Fickleness May Split a Species by Matt Kaplan
Selection or choice or decision are not usually considered derogatory terms, but fickleness is definitely derogatory. Fickle comes from
(Old English) which means deceitful.
So why choose a derogatory term for a decision or choice being made by a female bird when so many other non-derogatory, and more scientific, terms are available?
