But both will be able to claim they are vaginas.
Agree in principle, however the issue is that most scientific research in the Gender Studies field, are basically just opinion pieces with Hypotheses and Conclusions. It is an incredibly difficult field to get anything which counts as valuable scientific evidence imo, which is why I look on it as a bit of a joke. It's what I would count as scientific opinion, not scientific fact. You need to look at the Hierarchy of Evidence Pyramid to see why - also why I find any arguments that revolve around "consensus" massively unconvincing:If they want to challenge they should be writing papers, no? Would totally back that.
As it is, it's just an opinion piece. And other scientists have written different opinion pieces. So it doesn't really help does it.
Not saying they're wrong here. I kinda don't really care that much. They're talking specifically about sex (not gender, although they mention it earlier on) and I fall down on that side of the argument. But then, I'm not a scientist, so what the fuck do I know. I mean, as far as I used to know information couldn't move faster than light, but quantum entanglement shits all over that. So I'm open to people proving things through science.
Wanted to stop there because we should indeed be separating Sex and Gender. (As I've been saying all along). Or we should be inventing new language - our thinking about these topics is absolutely influenced by how we can talk about them - so if Sex is immutable, and Gender too bound up in Sex to be able to cover these topics then we need a third characteristic. (Other cultures have/have had just that and don't have the same problems - it does seem particularly to stick in the craw of the english-speaking western world).Agree in principle, however the issue is that most scientific research in the Gender Studies field
Yeah - don't necessarily disagree about this. @Wij's article sits firmly on the lowest rung there - Editorials and expert opinion (it's simply a letter from scientists and therefore relatively worthless).are basically just opinion pieces with Hypotheses and Conclusions.

It just said to stop making shit articles that conflate sex with secondary sexual characteristics and confuse everyone. The science is already in and nothing that the other articles do disproves it. It's not pretending to be a scientific paper. It doesn't need to be.
I think there was a twitter argument before Alice de-linked or blocked the group for getting abuse apparently. (I don't know, I don't know how it works - don't use it). But yeah, I agree - payscale doesn't denote intelligence. Only cold hard well-designed research should be getting used to further arguments.Doesn't call her a "senior scientist" anywhere in the article. A term without meaning anyway.
Just a determination not to let ideology trump facts. Two hairy-arsed people with cocks and balls can't produce a baby no matter how strong their 'expressed identity' is.The legal group so keen to defend the right to speak the truth, in this case a fundamental, observable scientific truth? The American Civil Liberties Union, a group whose modern day social media presence promotes nonsense like:
"The notion of biological sex was developed for the exclusive purpose of being weaponized against people."
"Sex and gender are different words for the same thing [that is] a set of politically and socially contingent notions of embodied and expressed identity."
and shares articles asserting that biological sex is rooted in white supremacy.
What about Mrs Potato head?
What's wrong with saying chest-feeders or womb-havers?
Twitch caves in to pressure on the correct spelling of women from people who aren’t women. Nice.Row Z haha
Twitch has become a bit of a shitshow in the last year. They are a content platform terrified of their on content makers and are now more interested in pushing as many of their Amazon overlord's ads as possible even if it technically breaks their own UI and API.Row Z haha
You miss the point. Lesbians who don't want to date men in dresses ARE getting banned from lesbian dating apps. It's actually happening, not on Twitter.If you will follow the most vocal of the vocal idiots on twitter, which is the platform where the most vocal idiots get the biggest voice.
So that's the most vocal of vocal idiots in vocal idiot land.
