Re: he, she, it, apes and monkeys

Never mind apes and monkeys, what about earthworms, slugs and snails? What is their pronoun? Also, most of the bees and wasps you see should be referred to as "she", but nobody ever does. (Solitary hymenopterous critters excepted, natch.)

You're all a bunch of insensitive specists.
