The Meiotic Drive.
Ever since I read about this t gene a couple of nights ago I keep thinking about the other 't genes': the inaccurate result that seems right; the misinterpreted piece of gossip that no one questions; the witness who sees what appears to be a crime but is really something quite innocent. The plausible idea that turns out not to be. All t genes, perhaps. They are hidden from view. So the genes spread and spread. Outside, everything seems fine but it isn't. And its only when the children start acquiring both genes that the real story can be heard. And then it's too late.
