so apparently “asexual reproduction” is no longer the preferred scientific term, so if anyone makes a sponge joke or whatever just scream “IT’S AGAMETIC KNOW YOUR SCIENCE” and throw a textbook at them

#this is pronounced ‘ay-guh-mee-tick’ because it means that an individual of a species reproduces without fusing gametes with another#it is more correct because it has nothing to do with sexuality at all#in fact at least a few species trigger reproduction by having sex (via emmalyn)
