Ever since Aristotle suggested that females are incomplete males, the study of sex determination has been a persistent reiteration of this notion. Thus, the scientific study of sex determination has centred male specific single factors to explain this phenomenon. These single factors include testes, testosterone, the Y chromosome, H-Y antigen and, finally, a recently cloned gene called ZFY. It is evident that such an androcentric bias is incapable of explaining sex determination.
