Dawkins loves a book because “he writes like me?” LOL.

There Are Two Biological Sexes

Quite some time ago, we saw the pseudoscientic essence of Bill Nye’s supposed spectrum of biological sexes.  Let’s take it a step further and consider this web article’s claim that there are 6 biological sexes:

We know, without question, that humans are not just born male and female.  There are at least six biological sexes that can result in fairly normal lifespans.

Scientific nonsense.

While we all know two of the sexes, male and female, what are the other four biological sexes? The article itself really never tells us what they are.   I’m shocked.  Wonder why that is?  I mean, if you have four other options apart from male and female, you’d think someone could actually name them.

Instead, the article punts and provides the following list:

The Six Most Common Karyotypes

The six biological karyotype sexes that do not result in death to the fetus are

X – Roughly 1 in 2,000 to 1 in 5,000 people (Turner’s )

XX – Most common form of female

XXY – Roughly 1 in 500 to 1 in 1,000 people (Klinefelter)

XY – Most common form of male

XYY – Roughly 1 out of 1,000 people XXXY – Roughly 1 in 18,000 to 1 in 50,000 births

These are not “six biological karyotype sexes.”  XY and XX are male and female, respectively.  The other four are males or females with abnormal chromosome counts known as sex chromosomal aneuploidy.

The missing X chromosome in Turner’s, and the additional X or Y chromosomes in the other conditions, exist because an error occurred during the key process in the formation of  either the sperm or egg – meiosis.  We can discuss the precise nature of this error if someone wants, but suffice it to say, it is an abnormality.  Humans normally have 46 chromosomes, Turner’s have 45, XXY and XYY have 47, and XXXY have 48.

To drive this point home, consider that the list does not include one of the most common forms of aneuploidy – trisomy 21.  In this case, the person has 47 chromosomes; 3 copies of chromosome 21.  The result is Down Syndrome.

Steer Clear of Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon is gradually becoming a cesspool under the guidance of its social justice philosophy.  The stench has gotten so bad that  even the leftwing Oregonian, a newspaper based in Portland,  is having to admit the decline.  For example, consider Steve Duin’s recent column entitled, “The new abnormal” 

Reporters and photographers were routinely threatened. When a KATU television crew, Genevieve Reaume and Ric Peavyhouse, sought interviews inside the barricade on Dec. 8, a demonstrator slapped Reaume’s cellphone to the ground, then bloodied her hand when she reached down to retrieve it.

What about the Portland police? Defunded? Not yet, but clearly defanged.

On Dec. 8, the Multnomah County sheriff’s deputies – with support from Portland police – arrived at 5 a.m. to process the eviction order at the Red House and make several arrests. Several hours later that morning, seven PPB squad cars inexplicably returned to the scene.

Bad move. The cops were met with bricks, traffic spikes, paintballs, their own batons and a murderous rage. Almost immediately, police fled the scene, overwhelmed, fearing for their safety, driven from the streets they are pledged to protect.

So it is that Portland pretends it has an image problem, not a homicide epidemic, a homeless catastrophe, or a permanent plywood infestation downtown.

So it is that a red house becomes the next trauma center in a city of blue tarps, and just about everyone I spoke to was terrified they might be the next random target of the mob.

Yet nowhere does Duin notice the obvious connection between social justice ideology and the decline of the city.

Interesting Lawsuit

Check this out:

Be sure to click on the above and read the whole thread. When a school forces its students to participate in social justice indoctrination, it is engaged in unethical behavior and an abuse of power. This is a school system “out of control” that is willing to intentionally harm its students in the name of “social justice.” The ends justify the means.

The Elliot Page Puzzle v.2

Recently, I identified what I will call “The Elliot Page Puzzle.”  The puzzle is represented by five questions that have never been answered by any advocate of social justice.  Here they are:

In 2014, was Elliot Page deluded in thinking he was a “gay woman” and has only now seen the Truth? 

Was there a discovery of some evidence between 2014 and 2020 that led to this change in belief? 

Or is it that Page was a woman in 2014 and has since changed to become a man? If so, what changed?

Also, if Page was a man back in 2014 who falsely identified as a “gay woman,” does this mean there are many other gay women who are truly men and whose sense of being a “gay woman” is a delusion?

I bring this up because it looks like the Elliot Page puzzle is not specific to Page.  Instead, it might represent a larger reality, arousing even more curiosity.  A very similar situation occurred with the trans activist Zinnia Jones.  Note:

Zinnia says that “…after years identifying as a gay male, Zinnia finally came to the conclusion that she was actually a trans woman in 2011 and started a romantic relationship with her close friend and lesbian Heather McNamara… Zinnia is currently in a polyamorous relationship with Heather and another trans woman named Penny.” 

Let’s let us pose the questions.

Trans Atheist insists there is an argument for putting every kid on puberty blockers so they can choose their gender later

From here:

Lauren McNamara, known by followers as “Zinnia Jones,” argued earlier this month that children should be legally able to consent to the administration of puberty blockers since they already de facto consent to the “permanent and irreversible changes” that come naturally through puberty.

“If children can’t consent to puberty blockers which pause any permanent changes even with the relevant professional evaluation, how can they consent to the permanent and irreversible changes that come with their own puberty with no professional evaluation whatsoever?” she wrote on Twitter.

The YouTuber went on to argue that “an inability to offer informed consent or understand the long-term consequences is actually an argument for putting every single cis and trans person on puberty blockers until they acquire that ability.”

My, I would love to hear more. Is this a position that is common among the trans activists/atheists?

Cyborgs Among Us

I have a simple question for social justice atheists – do cyborgs exist? Here is someone who believes he is a cyborg sent from the future:

Would it is cyborgphobia to be skeptical of these claims?

The Elliot Page Puzzle

From Wikipedia:

Elliot Page[1] (formerly Ellen Page; born February 21, 1987)[2] is a Canadian actor and producer. He first became known for his role in the film and television series Pit Pony (1997–2000), for which he won a Young Artist Award, and for recurring roles in Trailer Park Boys (2002) and ReGenesis (2004)…….Page publicly came out as a gay woman in February 2014 and subsequently as transgender in December 2020, announcing his new name as Elliot Page.

Still trying to figure out how all this is supposed to work.  So, in 2014, Page was deluded in thinking he was a “gay woman” and has only now seen the Truth?  Was there a discovery of some evidence between 2014 and 2020 that led to this change in belief? 

Or is it that Page was a woman in 2014 and has since changed to become a man? If so, what changed?

Also, if Page was a man back in 2014 who falsely identified as a “gay woman,” does this mean there are many other gay women who are truly men and whose sense of being a “gay woman” is a delusion?

Any woke wisdom would be appreciated.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is Now Off Limits

According to Caitlin Flanagan, a staff writer at The Atlantic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a dark show that celebrates evil.  First, the show apparently causes Flanagan to have anxiety attacks:

Apparently what we wanted next was 55 minutes of Christmas-crushing despair: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. For more than half a century, generations of children have taken the show, which debuted in 1964, into their hearts, and for just about as long, I’ve been trying to avoid it. From my earliest days, the special produced in me only a fretful anxiety, leading to an eventual refusal to watch it. I couldn’t really explain the problem. 

She is finally able to explain the problem with the lens of social justice.  You see, that cute, old Christmas show is really promoting all kinds of bad things. For example:

At one point, the Abominable Snowmonster tries to murder Rudolph in front of his parents by smashing a giant stalactite on his head. As our gentle hero lies facedown, concussed and unresponsive, his own girlfriend—the beautiful, long-lashed Clarice—wonders aloud why the snowman won’t put the little reindeer out of his misery: “Why doesn’t he get it over with?”

And then there is…….

Meanwhile, back at Santa’s workshop—a phrase that should connote only the jolliest of associations—a dark tale is unfolding.

Dark tale?  Pray tell……..

Freedom Of vs. Freedom From

Over at the Friendly Atheist blog, in a Dec 7, 2020 posting,  atheist Rick Snedeker writes:

Which should be granted primacy in America’s secular republic: freedom of religion or from religion?

Snedeker then proceeds to complain about the Supreme Court with the type of atheist activist whining we’ll be hearing plenty of over the next few years.  So let’s stick to this specific question.

I think it goes deeper than religion, as we can replace freedom of or from religion with freedom of or from X.  What the question then highlights is two different type of people – those who support “freedom of X” and those who support “freedom from X.”  The former are people who place high value on human freedom and would support a government that generally defends the freedom of its citizens.  The latter are people who do not greatly value freedom and instead have authoritarian inclinations.  They would support a government that greatly restricts freedom and dictates to its “subjects.” 

There is an easy way to see that I am right about all this.
