Lesbian Atheist: Nature, Science, And Facts Matter

Although I describe myself as transgender (I was donning flamboyant male costumes from early childhood on), I am highly skeptical about the current transgender wave, which I think has been produced by far more complicated psychological and sociological factors than current gender discourse allows. Furthermore, I condemn the escalating prescription of puberty blockers (whose long-term effects are unknown) for children. I regard this practice as a criminal violation of human rights.

It is certainly ironic how liberals who posture as defenders of science when it comes to global warming (a sentimental myth unsupported by evidence) flee all reference to biology when it comes to gender. Biology has been programmatically excluded from women’s studies and gender studies programs for almost 50 years now. Thus very few current gender studies professors and theorists, here and abroad, are intellectually or scientifically prepared to teach their subjects.

The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible. Every single cell of the human body remains coded with one’s birth gender for life. Intersex ambiguities can occur, but they are developmental anomalies that represent a tiny proportion of all human births.

  1. When I saw the title, somehow I knew it was Camille Paglia.

    Re puberty blocking drugs: I am currently on a temporary “vacation” from one such, that I’m getting for “advanced prostate cancer”. If the pubescent kids given that experience anything like what I (as a grown male) experience on it, it’s flat out child abuse. It’s awful.

  2. Camille Paglia, for all her being right this time, is probably just the proverbial broken clock that is right twice every 24 hours.
