    Probably deserving of a separate thread is 'Dumb search terms you've personally used'. I sometimes teach introductory genetics and when you do that you kind of get very used to the word sex. It doesn't come with neon flashing lights and triple x's. It's just a word to describe gender and a means of reproduction. When I prepare lectures I try to anticpate questions students will ask. In one class I use an example of male-pattern baldness which, to cut a long story short, acts as dominant trait in men but a recessive trait in women. I realized I didn't actually know the mechanism behind this (it acts like a sex-linked trait but it isn't on the sex chromosomes) and wondered whether there was some quick general information on dominance traits and sex. So, yup, you guessed it, I googled sex and dominance. At least it wasn't an image search.....
