Well this is absurd. A state lawmaker in Texas actually claimed last week that science recognizes SIX biological sexes, not just two. He’s making this argument in opposition to a bill in Texas that will ban biological males from competing in women’s sports:
Here’s more from DC Examiner:
A Texas lawmaker was ridiculed after claiming there are six biological sexes during a hearing on transgender sports participation.
“The bill seems to think there are two,” state Rep. James Talarico said of the number of sexes listed in a Texas bill that would ban transgender athletes from school sports. “The one thing I want us to all be aware of is that modern science obviously recognizes that there are many more than two biological sexes.”
Talarico, a Democratic lawmaker that was educated at Harvard, then argued that there are six biological sexes.
“In fact, there are six, which, honestly, Rep. Hefner, surprised me, too,” Talarico said.
The Democratic lawmaker elaborated that there are “six really common biological sexes” based on X and Y chromosomes that are distinct XX and XY female and male combinations, including X, XXY, XYY, and XXXY.
“The point is that, biologically speaking, scientifically speaking, sex is a spectrum, and oftentimes can be very ambiguous,” Talarico said.
The woman in the video, who was testifying on behalf of the legislation, essentially said that’s poppycock:
But Beth Stelzer, the president of Save Women’s Sports and who testified in favor of the legislation, countered that studies prove “that the male advantage is immutable [in athletics], and there are in fact two sexes. They are dimorphic: XX, XY.”
“The other quote ‘sexes’ mentioned are disorders of sexual development that are variants of XX or XY chromosomes. They are still disorders of male or female,” Stelzer said.
Right. They aren’t different genders or biological sexes, just variants that happen due to problems that occur during the reproductive process:
According to Children’s Hospital Colorado, while “X&Y chromosome variations” do occur, they stem from problems with the formation of a parent’s sperm or egg.”
“Males with an extra X chromosome usually have small testicles and show delayed or incomplete pubertal development due to low levels of testosterone,” the hospital’s website says. “Girls with Turner syndrome [one X chromosome] can have short stature, webbing of the neck, a broad chest and shorter fourth fingers.”
Democrats will seize on ANYTHING and lie to push their anti-God, anti-female agenda.
It’s a good thing Texas is more Republican than Democrat, so that hopefully this legislation will pass to ensure true fairness in women’s sports.
