Article is simple[change source]

Simple English Wikipedia is meant to be simple, to allow people who are not native speakers to understand it. Billz (Talk) 18:43, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

I agree even a three year old person would be able to understand the majority of this article.

lol, now I know that "simple english" can be taught to people of ANY age... it's like PG-3 (age rating). I will make a "simple spanish" based in this "simple english" and upload it in some wiki... and add any language that I already know or will learn from now on... however, the grammar will be the same as the original language.
It may have added words, grouped in lists of themes (ie: a Buddhist dictionary). Each list can have a couple hundred words at most and should be able to be explained using "basic english" (if they're not then "basic english" is more simplistic than simple, and "simple spanish" will add any word like "organ"... I may also delete words from this dictionary... like advertisement, lol).--Esteban.barahona (talk) 00:33, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Changing the image of humans[change source]

In Wikipedia, there was a discussion about changing the older image of humans to a new one - [1]. I think the image can be changed in this article as well. Mikael Häggström (talk) 09:02, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Well, I see no clear reason to change. The original photographs seem quite natural and inoffensive, better than the second version. The labelling on the second is more readable, but also more obtrusive. Readability of labels on the original is improved by using control/shift/+ to enlarge it.

  • I would support the change: the new female is a bit under average weight, but the far superior documentation etc and less awkward pose of the female make this image an improvement. I'm not sure what inoffensiveness has to do with it. sonia 09:23, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
If the labeling in the new image feels obtrusive, then there is also a version without labels available on the image page. I'm making the change now, but any further comments are still appreciated. Mikael Häggström (talk) 04:50, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Why can you not choose what gender your child will be?[change source]

Why is it not possible to choose what gender your child will be? Only daddy would be able to change it if you could because mummy has 2 x chromosomes and daddy has 1 x and 1y chromosomes so if daddy gives the x then = girl but if daddy gives y then = boy. But still, why is there no way to choose?Theperson50 (talk) 22:37, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Some biases regarding Human sex[change source]

I've noticed some inaccuracies and dated biases under the section discussing Humans that need to be updated up without overly complicating matters. It ignores and even issues judgment on the variation of sex determination and the non-binary character of Gender. I will try to make some changes to do more justice to what we know nowadays on the subject. Also, I have no idea why genetic disorders are mentioned here, so that has to go.
