Random thought: you know how cartoons sometimes depict a romance between an anthropomorphic flower and an anthropomorphic honeybee? And the flower is a girl and the bee is a boy, because of course they are.
A couple of related facts just occurred to me:
1. In terms of plant reproduction, the bee’s role is to function as a go-between, delivering pollen between two flowers; that is, there’s a second flower involved that’s not being depicted.
2. All worker honeybees are female.
Conclusion: it would more accurately reflect the situation to depict the bees and flowers as polyamorous lesbians.
