Cicada years are already pretty weird. But this time, there’s a fungus that’s making things full on crazy. “The insects have no idea what’s happening. The fungus, however, is ‘pulling the strings’ and making the cicadas want to mate with everyone. Males that are infected will continue to mate with females, but they’ll also pretend to be females so they can spread the fungus to even more partners.” This seems like a reasonably good predictor of what human behavior will look like during our post quarantine summer. Hopefully humans won’t experience all the Cicada symptoms. In addition to pushing mating season into overdrive, “the fungus takes over their bodies, causing them to lose their lower abdomen and genitals.” And still, in the cicada world, there’s no shortage of wingmen.
