I'm not sure which specific chapter deals the most with gender. Snowman’s recollection of his conversation with Crake (ch. 7) regarding the nature of sex and relationships is also of interest. Crake advocates for a reproductive system that is rather reductionist. In other words, it takes out many of the elements of romantic love that many individuals feel are so critical to a healthy sexual relationship. As Jimmy argues, he finds Crake’s idea of strictly hormonally driven reproduction robot-like, devoid of the artistic complexity inherent in human relationships. The irony of Jimmy’s statement lies in his own history of romantic relationships, discussed in depth in Chapter 10.
