ginsburg precedent

A newly classified species of Praying Mantis, named in honour of the Notorious RBG, the Ilomantis ginsburgæ, represents a significant departure from the usually gender-bias of taxonomists and biologists, which had heretofore almost exclusively (for reasons) isolated unique exemplars by male representation. When told (mansplained) that looking at lady bits had no taxonomical value, one researcher became more determined and found a new specimen within the genus and designated it after the equal rights champion and US Supreme Court judge.
