Trust the science…
but more importantly, learn about science.
Recently a recent addition to the united states congress put up a sign outside her capitol office that read:
“There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. Trust The Science!”
That this same individual has also professed beliefs that
a solar powered Jewish space laser caused the California wildfires,
that 9/11, global warming, wearing masks and voting results are hoaxes,
and that victims of mass shootings, many of them children, were “paid actors”…
just goes to show how fringe a fantasy a two gender world is.
So let’s look at the science on gender for a moment…
Genetics are not gender.
Science has confirmed that gender occurs across a spectrum.
That having a specific gender along that spectrum
does not always imply or correlate to a set physical, emotional attraction or sexual behavior.
University of Liège, Belgium found that transgender brains resemble their later identified gender
even at an early age.
Suggesting that gender is structurally different in the brain,
not just in the genitals.
In fact, it does not originate in the genitals at all!
