    Please don't take this the wrong way, I mean to be very serious. What does one do when one disagrees with medicinal "facts"? The information is dominated by males. Don't get me wrong, I plan to practice, but when I came across this while reviewing biology for the MCAT in the PR Complete Mcat book on page 472, "The female does not experience ejaculation." And, I got really angry! Um, excuse me, can we please talk about this? Isn't this a hugely oppressive statement? I haven't even gotten into medical school yet!

    How does one deal with this? When are we ever going to recognize that there is a lot about medicine that white males don't know? Does anyone who has been through medical school or in medical school had a discussion about this non-sense statement who could ease my pain please? Does one just learn that females never ejaculate? Seriously?

    I completely agree, my physiology textbook says that Indian people have tentacles instead of legs. In my opinion this is just not true; it's a myth perpetuated by white males!

    Can someone who has the TPR book confirm or deny this?

    Simply contact the author, and tell her that she made a mistake.

    I'm pretty sure there actually isn't a scientific consensus on this topic yet anyway, so technically neither of you are right
