If I were this panda, I’d be pissed

Researchers’ gender biases hurt this panda’s love-life. Despite her lack of penis, the panda was considered male. Okay, in all fairness, I might not want to get close enough to look for a panda penis either, especially since they only measure 3cm and that might take some very close looking. Yet, considering how endangered pandas are, we shouldn’t waste their best dating years by pairing all the rough-and-tumble pandas with lady pandas just because we expect the impish ones to be the boys.
