Peace & a happy new year to thee as well!|
Sweet message, Christo. I always look forward to your contributions here (& soon will be checking out your musical ones elsewhere).
The "gender" issue became salient for me somewhere around 3rd grade when I had to do a research report on my insect (nick-)namesakes. I was OUTRAGED to discover that only male crickets sing! (They purportedly do this via repeated single leg-to-wing movements & with time signatures thought to be keyed to temperature in ways I don't understand.) In any case, I took the information quite hard (fights with biology can get nasty, can't they?).
I was not for a moment offended by your supposition!
