‘Science’ Magazine Clams ‘No Scientific Foundation’ for Defining Gender by Birth

The nearly 150-year-old magazine, Nature, just disgraced itself by signing onto the left-wing PCism that there are 57 genders and not just, you know, the two defined by actual science.

Founded in 1869, Nature ended its century and a half of dedication to science with one idiotic editorial. The op-ed led to this tweet:

“Editorial: The US Department of Health and Human Services proposes to establish a legal definition of whether someone is male or female based on the genitals they are born with. This proposal has no foundation in science and should be abandoned.”

The magazine is incensed that the Trump administration is proposing to return federal policy back to the idea that human beings are made in one of two genders. Not 57, like the left has been claiming of late.

But the science-denying Nature now says that gender is a “construct,” or something.

According to the outrageous editorial:

The proposal — on which HHS officials have refused to comment — is a terrible idea that should be killed off. It has no foundation in science and would undo decades of progress on understanding sex — a classification based on internal and external bodily characteristics — and gender, a social construct related to biological differences but also rooted in culture, societal norms and individual behaviour. Worse, it would undermine efforts to reduce discrimination against transgender people and those who do not fall into the binary categories of male or female.

Folks on Twitter had a blast destroying the science deniers at Nature.
