    From the evidence of substantial portions of my own country's male population, one could just as easily argue that the sole purpose of a man is to scratch himself publically and consume large quantities of yellow water (aka American beer) whilst slouched on the sofa watching televised sporting events.

    The XX chromosome combination.
    Believe it or not, there is a tiny percentage of naturally born men in the world who have the XX chromosome. Not XXY or anything, just XX.

    About the bill: I think its purpose was to make sure transgenders aren't called women when they were born as men. I don't agree with the bill, but I agree with THAT.

    The biological definition of a female is an individual that produces the more energetically expensive anisogamous gamete - eggs.

    Infertility is strongly selected against, though there's always kin selection as a means of promoting your genes if you have no direct reproductive fitness.

    make your mind up!
    designed or evolved?

    Designed by evolution.

    I dont think there is anything in particular that defines a woman, apart from maybe having a fanny.
    Everything else can be had by both genders.

    What about if somebody has a sex change then, are they a woman?

    Nope, but I'm happy if they want to pretend.
