‘Science’? PolitiFact Denies the FACT That We’re Born Boys or Ladies
You can see a “fact checker” marching to the eardrums of the libertines that are left over as they work to deny the biological fact that the vast majority of people are born either boys or girls.
On Thursday, PolitiFact took part in the Twitter battle between Congressmen Marie Newman and Marjorie Taylor Greene over the so-called “Equality Act”. “We checked, and the science is clear: gender identity goes beyond men and women.”
How can you trust a “fact check” from people who are so raunchy and have obvious facts? On Thursday, PolitiFact was not subtle by illustrating their “check” with a picture of leftist activists holding up a sign that read “TRANS EQUALITY NOW”.
Daniel Funke and Miriam Valverde spared Rep. Greene one of those “false” evaluations on the Truth-O-Meter, but they took the typical approach of finding liberal “experts” to add some sort of pseudo-facticity to their gender-deconstructivist arguments:
Much of the political debate has centered on gender identity – particularly Greene’s notion that there are “two genders”. However, public health authorities, doctors and biologists say science is clear: gender identity goes beyond man and woman.
“Sex is a biological term Gender is a social construct“said Ignacio T. Moore, professor of life sciences at Virginia Tech.” In other words, gender can vary based on society and culture. “
The belief that there are only two genders is an over-simplification“And what science really tells us is that it’s more complicated,” said Dr. Jason Rafferty, an assistant clinical professor at Brown University.
It won’t surprise you that Professor Moore teaches a “Biology of Sex” course to correct “Society” and “a general lack of scientific interest and understanding regarding sex and gender. He plays” Devil’s Advocate “with students, Seeking Refuge They have not dealt with the gender spectrum, they are discussing controversies such as transgender women competing in sports with biological women better informed, i.e. when they become voting members of society, You can make informed decisions. ”
Sounds like an objective expert? No. There’s no sign that Funke and Valverde ever sought a conservative counterpoint to this liberal-laden story.
PolitiFact emphasizes that a tiny minority of people are “intersex”.
Estimates for the proportion of babies born intersex are between 0.018% and 1.7%, depending on how intersex is defined.
Nature offers variations in gender and humans decide how to categorize them. said Alice Dreger, a bioethicist who has studied differences in gender development. “”Nature does not tell us who counts as male and who as female and who counts as intersex – we draw those lines, “she said.
An objective expert? Alice Dreger made repeated donations to Obama for the President and other Democrats, and wrote a book called Galileo’s Middle Finger. Heretics, Activists, and the Search for Justice in Science. One reviewer stated: “Historian Alice Dreger has been running for two decades a life of exceptional commitment that connects activist service to victims of unethical medical research with the defense of scientists whose work has outraged identity-political activists. “
The article doesn’t end on the facts, but on how “experts” worry about LGBTQ people affected by narrow-minded two-gender believers:
A gender identity and gender misunderstanding deserves clarification, experts said, because LGBTQ Americans – especially teenagers – face more damaging health outcomes than other Americans.
“The most important thing is that it’s not just about politics,” Rafferty said. “These are people’s lives.”
Understanding common sense of gender leads to “unhealthy consequences”. When you have compassion, you should tune in to the fluidity of sex. Is that the “check the facts” message?
