Well smack my hide and call me sexist! My feminism did not serve me well during that little question. Thanks for the stimulating article ;)
Err, thanks. I think?
"Since females arrived on the scene first then it follows that they created males."
Sexual reproduction is the combination of two haploid cells. If these cells are the same size - isogamous - then there is neither female nor male. We only get female and male gametes when we get gametes of different sizes - anisogamy. And these were most likely originally within the same hermaphroditic body ie a body that is neither male nor female, or both male and female if you like.
There is a good question/answer post here at "Ask a Biologist" to explain this more thoroughly:
I got so confused because I assumed the surgeon was female, so my answer was that the son grew up with her.
How would that lead to her answer?
