Bill Nye Deletes Segment on Old Show Stating that Chromosomes Determine Sex

Apparently the #Science was settled when this was first broadcast, but now that there's a noisy political movement that engages in #SexChromosomeDenialism, the #Science is being altered and in fact retconned to comport with current political preferences.

So I need to know: Was the #Science settled then, or is the #Science settled now?

And if the #Science can so quickly go from settled to unsettled to replaced with a new #Science and re-settled, then why should anyone believe that any currently settled #Science is any more permanent and settled than this Abandoned Religious Myth about X and Y Chromosomes determining sex?

By the way, scientists have identified 6500 genes which appear the same in both men and women, but which express themselves differently depending on whether they're carried in a man or woman.

And what the man or woman feels he, she, or xe might be has no influence on this genetic expression at all.

30 Nye's old show was just basic "Mister Wizard" stuff, old school science show for kids. It was okay, as long as he stayed away from Darwinism. I don't mind that, except when its stated as absolute unquestioned fact or forced into areas it doesn't need to be.

He was great on Almost Live too, hilarious.

Its when he hitched his wagon to the Global Warming crusade that he went nuts and lost all credibility and meaning.

61 OK, somewhat related: it occurred to me that the Left's current big cultural thing, the new "The Handmaid's Tale" tv show, has a lead actress who is a Scientologist.

Just think about that, a Hollywood Scientologist is lecturing us that the biggest fear we should have is Trump installing a Christian theocracy. I saw "Going Clear"...she is a member of a bananas cult that treats it's members as ATMs and slaves.

62 That's not how respectable science works.

Even if something is proven to be wrong in the end, it remains a part of the literature.

You do not go full Soviet Airbrush to affirm the current truth Party dogma.

116 Setting aside that the whole thing is insanity, I would bet that how a person feels DOES affect how some of those genes express themselves.

I mean, I expect that there's a feedback loop. There are certainly changes that are a direct result of activity (like working out) but there are doubtless changes that are a result of emotional state (like being a moody little bitch).

Remember, the Left gets around this by declaring that "gender" and "biological sex" are two different things.

They declare "biological sex" is only about your reproductive organs and had nothing to do with anything else, including one's "gender".

Of course, now they are saying that having two biological sexes is a "social construct" because there is somehow dozens and dozens of "sex determining genes" and that it's all a spectrum and stuff.

In all honesty, these people make Trofim Lysenko look like a paragon of the scientific method.

It is what they want for you. It is what they want for me. It is what they want for all of us. The tactics are different - the goal is the same. This airbrushing out genetic science and replacing it with "transexualism is normal you H8r and it is natural - this 40 year old guy in a dress should be allowed in your daughters changing room at middle school and, also, you must suck his dick" - is all part of it.

139 The problem, I think is that people took male and female as being absolute extremes of opposite then when they found out that there's a wide range in each, they started thinking it was all social construct and so on. That's why we still get amazed articles in magazines about a study done proving boys and girls are, in fact, different.

Its not John Wayne vs Marilyn Monroe, there is some range in there. But the two are not interchangable either. Even the most effeminate male is more male than the most masculine female.

194 And, of course, there are unfortunate folks born with the bits of both male and female. Almost without exception one set is non functional, for view only. But they exist and that's a tough area.

Milton Helpern wrote a book some years back about his experiences as chief medical examiner of NYC. One of his cases involved a subway conductor who died suddenly of a heart attack on the job, so an autopsy was necessary. The man was a outwardly normal middle-aged white guy, happily married with kids, but when Helpern looked at his digestive system, he found that the guy had a small uterus with a single ovary and fallopian tube that connected to the lower part of the large intestine. So Helpern asked the man's widow whether he had had any unusual health problems, and she said no, he had just had "those bleeding piles" about once a month until he reached his late forties. Helpern concluded that the man had in effect had a small menstrual period through his rectum every month until he reached the age at which most women undergo menopause. But the rest of the man's body was normal, including the usual male equipment.

Another of Helpern's cases concerned a MTF transsexual who committed suicide, and Helpern noted even then (the 1970s) that trannies have a suicide rate much higher than that of the cis-het population.

196 "Texas should annex California and dissolve its state government."

Seriously, Trump should get behind the State of Jefferson movement.

There are multiple counties in southern Oregon and northern California who don't like their respective state government apparatuses, and have not liked them for many decades now. They would love to have official imprimatur to secede from OR and CA respectively, and combine as a new state.

In all of the prior century, there were accessions of only five new states to the USA. No living ex-President has that magic asterisk by their name in the history books as having expanded the roster. This should be irresistible to Trump, the self-proclaimed "builder".

It would also dilute the left's strength in Clowngress.

264 Not in Trump's wheelhouse, but too bad, since Merkel and other krauts are beclowning themselves on defense spending, and a detailed smackdown would be at least amusing.


The idiot German "leaders" are pretending to believe that "development" aid should count as part of their NATO-related spending. Absurd, of course.


For obvious reasons - but also because Germany wouldn't know real "development" to save its life. Not their thing. Their thing for 3 generations has been to shut up and do what they're told, make nice stuff, and not launch any new wars.


Anyway it's all irrelevant because Trump's instincts about NATO (and Germany) were right from the outset - it's basically an outmoded arrangement that achieves little. But now that, unfortunately, he has shifted to jawboning them on spending for "NATO", he's muddied his own waters.

285 Gracias, Grump.


Note that these are "not for sale in CA". Since I bought one (better condition than these, $100 more) back in February, I found this curious. So a few weeks ago I emailed them, and not a non-response response.


My speculation is that they do not handle the final processing/fulfillment, whoever does has failed to remove the 12-rd magazines as required for some states (they failed to do so in my case, for example), and instead of bothering with it they're just retreating and saying no CA sales.


Which doesn't explain why they still offer sales to CT, HI, MD, or NY *without* magazines (CA used to be on this list, now isn't ..... WTF?).


In any case, have my nice CZ83 from AIM already, and on Sunday I'll be picking up the *new* one (presumably from the limited last run done by CZ in 2015) from a dealer. Plan is to put it away, for now. Either use it when my surplus one gets tired, or sell it (I think I got one of the last ones around - and a GunBroker auction for one in CA just last week had a final price above what I paid).

I have not seen any estimates for O-care enrollment even as high as 5 million. Five f***ing million. A little less than the population of Chicago, for the entire country of 320 million. Meanwhile, those seriously negatively affected (incl. losing insurance for the first time in their lives, due to unaffordability) in the individual market number closer to 15 million, or more.


And as someone cited here yesterday, as of 2013 the "pre-existing" condition element had attracted a whopping total of 100K enrollees.


Is there *anything* that will force the administration to engage in politics, and possibly induce/inspire some of the broke-dick GOP to do the same? Probably not.

Plus - I have a pretty slim rationale for my first 83, anyway (mostly, um ..... lessee ..... CZ! OK, and .... out of production!). And a sketchy rationale for the *2nd* 83 (out of production, popular with concealed carry types and hey maybe shall-issue is coming from SCOTUS).

355 Ignoramus, if the tax cuts are done on reconciliation, then yes 51 votes. Like Dubya's tax cuts, this will mean they are sunset-ed at some point (though his were extended, subsequently).


I have yet to understand how revenue reductions from cutting O-care related taxes creates fiscal room for more cuts, in income taxes. I'm definitely missing something, as that's upside-down the way it sounds.


There are millions (multiples of O-care policy holders - and in some cases, the same people), meanwhile, who have a $10-15K surtax we'd like to see go away (the cost of an individual plan in many markets, vs. what it cost before O-care). Yes, that big. I know it's a national secret, and unknown to many here (who, laughably, whine about 20% premium increases, vs. 400%), but the worst affected victims of the O-care idiocy will see no change from anything even proposed so far.

361 Plus - I have a pretty slim rationale for my first 83, anyway
(mostly, um ..... lessee ..... CZ! OK, and .... out of production!).
And a sketchy rationale for the *2nd* 83 (out of production, popular
with concealed carry types and hey maybe shall-issue is coming from
SCOTUS).

So my threadbare excuses for buying guns I never previously considered have run out.

I'm thinking, I'm thinking .....

Duncan, now I'm confusulated. The designations for what we call 380 these days are like spellings for the late Col. Khaddafy/Qadhafi/Kadafi/Qadaffi/whatever.


The surplus 83 has "9mm Browning" on the slide. The new one has "9mm Browning Court" on the slide. I'll have to look up whether "Kurz" is just another variation, or a different caliber.

379 Oh yes the 83's a bit heavy (all steel), so many consider it unsuited for carry. I don't/don't anticipate carrying anyway, so moot point for me, but obviously the gun's stability/controllability come from that mass.


But there are people who don't mind the weight/size, and it seems there is in fact a decent concealed-carry demand for the 83. And that's one of my thin rationales for buying the new one and putting it way. So shhhhhhhh.

-Unfettered Muslim Immigration financed by taxes on Christian Churches
-Gun Confiscation/fines/ prosecution of ALL gun owners
- 24/7 Propaganda by the MSM (where Chelsea is now a host)
-free college, but only ones who can get in are LGBT/Blacks/Muslims, celebrate the diversity
-War with Russia, women drafted and in combat in Europe
-Obamacare morphs into Liverpool Health Pathways/ euthanasia for anyone ill over 60
-single child policy mandatory/ but don't worry aborted child will be turned into a piece of jewelry
-federal minimum wage of $25/hr
-abolish all other political parties
