See DONALD SYMONS, THE EVOLUTION OF HUMAN SEXUALITY 21 (Oxford University Press, USA 1979) ("[A]mong nonhermaphroditic, many-celled animals that reproduce sexually there are two and only two sexes, defined on the basis of the sex cells they produce: a female produces eggs, which are large and carry a reserve of food for the embryo; a male produces sperm, which are small and possess a taillike organ to enable them to reach the egg.").
