I hope someone recognizes this old novel. It might be Raiders from the Rings by Alan E Nourse, but I'm far from confident.

The space people never have daughters, because of damage to their X chromosome. They get wives by kidnapping from Earth. (It's not clear, at least in my very dusty memory, whether they forcibly marry their captives; the women seem to adjust pretty well.) You'd think the problem would clear up in one generation, but no.

What about asexual reproduction? There do exist one-gender species in real life that reproduce without another individual in various ways.

This Trope is clearly sort of distinct from Singe-Gender World where The Other Wiki says Female examples are far more common, while here men are refereed to as the more common example.

I propose we rename this trope back to Single Sex Species. as its main name. for two reasons

1. Added Alliterative Appeal

2. You Keep Using That Word Gender is not a b iol ogical term but a mindset or a behavior for example the Namekians are all Male not all Masculine see the difference?
