Why did Jesus have to be male? An opinion from a biologist

1jesus_savesI previously argued that the birth of Jesus as male is no evidence for male supremacy. Here, a biologist takes a guess why Jesus was born male:

I believe that Mary was a virgin when Jesus was conceived.

In fact, and you complementarians take notice, THIS is WHY Jesus being male may be important because if He were female, I might be able to argue away parthenogenesis because it happens (not in mammals to our knowledge but in cordites and other animals.
But Jesus was/is a man, He needed either a Y chromosome or something male-derived to be able to be a man. Mary had to be a virgin and Jesus had to be a dude to give this a profound wow factor… – Debra Baker
