Don’t Know Much Biology

When Dr. Bhavik Kumar of Planned Parenthood testified before a Congressional committee, he was asked if men could become pregnant and give birth. He replied, “Men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”

OK, if a women pretending to be a man (a “trans man”) were fertile, she could become pregnant. However, Kumar’s use of the qualifier especially implies that there are other “men” who could become pregnant in addition to those with XX chromosomes.

Don’t Know Much Biology

An online survey conducted by WPA Intelligence last month found 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, “Some men can get pregnant.” 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats concurred.

Perhaps the fertility problems some “men” are having may be one of the sources of dissatisfaction some social and behavioral “science” graduates (especially, gender studies majors) feel about their degrees.Democracy Dies in Derpness™

Bullies

Fuzzy Slippers has a post over at Legal Insurrection headlined Trans Activists Shout Down 80-year-old Woman Who Spoke Out Against Biological Male In Women’s Changing Room. “Julie Jaman was banned from Port Townsend’s Mountain View Pool after complaining about a biological male ogling young girls in the changing room. Jaman was showering when she saw the man staring at little girls undressing. She said that she felt her and the children’s safety was threatened. When she later tried to give a speech about the incident, she was heckled. Trans activists ripped down the suffragette flags behind her and tried to sabotage her microphone.

I’m so old I remember when men who picked on women were considered bullies, and it may be that incidents such as this are beginning to remind others. The appearance of the #LGBDropTheT could be a sign that a sufficiently broad swath of the public have had enough and that women will have their safe space protected again.

One can hope.

Don’t Know Much Biology—Or English Vocabulary

Politico has a story up headlined Data brokers resist pressure to stop collecting info on pregnant people.

Perhaps someone should remind (or inform) the staff at Politico that only sexually mature human beings with XX chromosomes have the bodily organs required to gestate a baby, i.e., to be pregnant. In the English language such humans are called “women.”

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

The Daily Mail reports a child sex abuse center at Johns Hopkins University has hired a trans professor, who was forced to resign from Virginia school for defending pedophiles as “minor attracted persons.” Allyn Walker will start work as a postdoctoral fellow for the school later this month at a center aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.

Forget it, Gentle Reader. It’s Baltimore.

Don’t Know Much Biology

When asked the definition of the word woman, Ketanji Brown Jackson said she couldn’t answer the question because she isn’t a biologist. This raises several questions. First, does she consider herself to be a woman, and if so, why and by what standard? Second, how can she determine if the Violence Against Women Act is an applicable statute in a given case?

She was also was asked when human life begins, and she said that she had a religious belief which she set aside when deciding cases. When asked a follow up question about when equal protection of the laws attach to a human being, she said that she didn’t know.

Hmmmmmm.

DO Know Much About the French I Took

Matt Margolis has a post over at PJ Media about the results of a Rasmussen survey that shows that 75% of Americans believe that there are only two genders. Well, if they’re French speakers, they’re correct. If they are English speakers, they are wrong.

In the English language there are four genders: masculine/he, feminine/she, neuter/it, and indefinite/he (informal)/one (formal). In English, gender follows biological sex for animate beings.

There are only two sexes, and sex is not the same thing as gender—not even in the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak Dictionary.
