A Biologist Explains Why Sex Is Binary


                                                               (Green Lake, Wisconsin)

See evolutionary biologist Colin Wright's article in today's Wall Street Journal - "A Biologist Explains Why Sex Is Binary."

Wright says, "In an effort to confuse the issue, gender ideologues cite rare ambiguous ‘intersex’ cases."

Wright writes, "When biologists claim that sex is binary, we mean something straightforward: There are only two sexes. This is true throughout the plant and animal kingdoms. An organism’s sex is defined by the type of gamete (sperm or ova) it has the function of producing. Males have the function of producing sperm, or small gametes; females, ova, or large ones. Because there is no third gamete type, there are only two sexes. Sex is binary."

Sex, therefore, is not a "social construct."

Oh, but in today's New Orwellian Totalitarianism (N.O.T.) we're not supposed to talk about these things.
