Bill Nye Edits Out Biology Lesson

 

So Bill Nye the snake oil salesman is now trying to throw some basic biology down the memory hole:

When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children’s show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one’s gender.

In the original episode, titled “Probability,” a young woman told viewers, “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”

“See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, ” the young woman continued. “See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy.”

But in the version of the episode uploaded to Netflix, the segment has been cut entirely. While noncontroversial at the time, the 1996 segment appears to contradict Netflix’s new series “Bill Nye Saves the World.”

Trigger warning.

Here’s the actual video that was silently cut out:

In the world of postmodern science, I suppose teaching meiosis (the phenomenon behind these probabilities) will be deemed offensive.

    Obviously, Bill Nye never was a “science guy”.

    Whereas teaching mitosis will be deemed divisive.

    A-boom-tish!

    Even science has been corrupted…or at least those professing to be scientists

    Go ahead and present it. If you are able to do that, go ahead and explain how such a defect should mean and be treated any differently than other defects, like polydactyly for example.

    Vy,

    That’s just it. “Defects” are done away with in this postmodern age. The only flaw a person can possess is belonging to an oppressor group or rejecting progressive ideology, anything else is simply a normal variation. It’s a sin to identify something as a defect.

  10. Doug says:

    Do you think that I could leverage my (post-axial) polydactyly as a disprivilege and be able to play an “oppressed victim” for the sake of social justice?

  11. Ilíon says:

    Still and all, since human beings don’t come in “genders”, but rather sexes — specifically, each human beings is one of only two possible sexes — then clearly, there is no such thing as “gender dysphoria”.

    Oh! You mean those people who can never keep straight which words are which genders. But, frankly, we don’t need to call those people (the invented phrase) “gender dysphoriacs”, when we’ve already had a terms for them for centuries: English speakers.
