It's supposed to be O+ not +O just correcting a mistake I made
** There is also a male mosquito in the bug bar that orders a Bloody Mary +O which is obviously supposed to be blood even though males only drink plant juices

There is a male mosquito in a bugs life that orders a Bloody Mary +O which is obviously supposed to be blood and yet no one seems to remember that scene and yet it's a perfect example of a incest gender blender watch the movie if you don't believe me or you look up on the Pixar wiki on the mosquito and it will tell you

And in fairness, of course, it's not like playing this trope ''perfectly'' straight would be at all feasible, as accurately depicting insect society and values would be, put bluntly, ''obscenely creepy'', none of the characters would be remotely sympathetic, and it would probably come across to the uninformed viewer as a [[StrawFeminist nightmarishly overblown paranoid misogynistic conspiracy theory]], and even if the whole "breeding slaves" business were ignored, an entire society overtly built around strict gender roles would be hard to sell in modern times regardless of what gender is doing what. Still, the people at Hollywood are clever, they probably could figure ''something'' out.

Changed an inaccurately.
It's a fact that throughout history, mammals including humans have dwelled in mostly patriarchal societies where the males are dominant and females are extremely fragile incubators. But Earth is a diverse place, and with such diversity, even Feminism has a chance to manifest as an actual process of biological life. In the parts of the insect world that are organized, [[LadyLand the females rule]] (the others are loners). In colonies, females -- or sometimes the genderless -- are the only ones who have any semblance of a life with a job and purpose and are responsible for all the work involved in running things, such as building, foraging, defending from outsiders, and most especially creating eggs for the continuation of the Swarm. The males? They are mindless drones who are programmed to only have sex and then die - or are eaten (or sometimes both). But that's not how it is in the human world... [[MenAreTheExpendableGender most of]] [[TheUnfairSex the time]], [[AllMenArePerverts anyway]].

* The ants in ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'' don't even have a hive structure; anthills contain family groups of mom, dad, and one or more kids. The mom isn't a huge queen either, she's just an ant with [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics eyelashes]].

* ''Creator/SparkPlugEntertainment'' plays it straight with ''Plan Bee'', which features both male and female worker bees and has a male worker as its protagonist, but averts it with ''An Ant's Life'', where all worker ants are depicted as female.

* Averted in, at least ''[[VideoGame/DonPachi DoDonPachi: DaiFukkatsu]]'' where it is revealed that Hibachi, the eponymous [[InfernalRetaliation Angry]] [[TrueFinalBoss Boss]] [[EverythingsWorseWithBees Bee]], is female. Whether this is true for the previous four games or not is unknown.

In colonies, females -- or sometimes the genderless -- are the only ones who have any semblance of a life with a job and purpose and are responsible for all the work involved in running things (building, foraging, defending from outsiders, what-have-you).

[[MenAreTheExpendableGender most of]] [[TheUnfairSex the time]], [[AllMenArePerverts anyway]]. When an insect society [[BeePeople like that of ants or bees]] is depicted in fantasy media, the hero of the story will usually be... a male worker? The fact that the workers in Hymenopteran social insect colonies (ants, bees, wasps, etc.) are all females, and the only males exist to fertilize the queen and [[OutWithABang quickly die after this mission is complete]], sometimes by [[GroinAttack the queen ripping the male's genitalia out of his body]], seems to have no bearing on the need for making the hero a male. After all, you NEED a "Male Lead" who can go out on adventures and save princesses. And as the only actual males in an anthill spend their entire lives doing nothing but providing the queen with a constant supply of genetic material... makes it hard to set up any kind of adventure-hooks.
