    Biologists in WSJ: Only Two Sexes, Male and Female, There is No Sex 'Spectrum'

    File this under "No shit, Sherlock!"

    Biologists in WSJ: Only Two Sexes, Male and Female, There is No Sex 'Spectrum'

    In a powerful commentary in the Feb. 3 edition of The Wall Street Journal, biologists Colin Wright and Emma Hilton explain that, scientifically, there are only two sexes, male and female, and there is no sex "spectrum." They also stress that "biologists and medical professionals" must stop being politically correct and "stand up for the empirical reality of biological sex."

    With the phenomenon of some men saying they "identify" as women and some women saying they "identify" as men, or any "gender identity" combination therein, "we see a dangerous and anti-scientific trend toward the outright denial of biological sex," state the biologists Wright and Hilton.

    This notion that there is a sex "spectrum," where people can choose "to identify as male or female," regardless of their anatomy, is irrational and has "no basis in reality," say the biologists. "It is false at every conceivable scale of resolution."

    As they explain, "In humans, as in most animals or plants, an organism’s biological sex corresponds to one of two distinct types of reproductive anatomy that develop for the production of small or large sex cells—sperm and eggs, respectively—and associated biological functions in sexual reproduction."

    ------------------------------------------------


    Not only that -- and I'm sure this will come as a shock to many of you -- sex and gender haven't got the slightest thing to do with each other.

    Sex is a biological distinction.
    Gender is a grammatical distinction.

    It's mostly just English-only monoglots who fall for this noise because English is the only major language that uses natural gender exclusively.

    Next week they make a real earth shattering revelation. Everyone is either alive or dead.

    Stay tuned.

    I cannot understand why the hell they are confused.
    XY chromosome = male.
    Xx is female.

    The rest is degenerative societal behavior being accepted and degrading the human race and nature itself.
