Another Fine Gender Theory Shot Down by Science

It’s always amusing to watch the ninnies, who have almost no grasp of science or logic, loudly trumpet some study which they mistakenly believe validates their absurd beliefs; when, in fact, the complete opposite is true. “Gender theory” currently marches proudly at the head of the parade of absurd and illogical theories beloved of the so-called “intelligentsia”.

Recent research trumpeted by the anti-science transgender lobby and the know-nothing journalists as somehow “proving” gender theory, in fact shows that its most basic tenets are fundamentally wrong.

Breakthrough research has revealed for the first time evidence that the brain activity of people who feel they inhabit the wrong body closely resembles that of the gender they want to embrace.

Analysis of around 160 participants showed that biological males with gender dysphoria – the experience of discomfort or distress due to their biological sex – had a brain structure and neurological patterns similar to biological females, and vice versa.

The analysis revealed that the distinct neurological differences are detectable during childhood.

The glaring issue in this study for gender ideology should be obvious: Gender is biological and binary. Sex differences are innate.

The fundamental tenets of “gender theory” are that “gender” has no biological basis, but is rather a “social construct”, and that sex is a “spectrum” rather than a binary. These theories have always been patently absurd, but this new research demolishes them completely.

If sex differences were not innate and existed on a spectrum, then there could not possibly be “male” and “female” brains. If peoples’ brains are biologically hard-wired to either of a sexual binary, then it would be impossible to change genders on a whim, as gender theorists insist they can – and are increasingly trying to enshrine in law.

Indeed, it immediately becomes obvious that even the dim bulbs of gender theory are uncomfortably aware of the implications of this research.

The findings, presented at the European Society of Endocrinology annual meeting in Barcelona, are likely to provoke controversy among groups who argue gender identity should be matter of personal choice and not medical definition.

However, the scientists behind the new research say their discovery promises doctors a potent new tool with which to offer better advice at an earlier stage.

In fact, if this research bears up, it could well end up demolishing the current fad of “trans-trenders”. There is strong evidence that many so-called “transgender” children are simply jumping on to the latest fad. “Social contagion” has been a well-known phenomenon at least since the 18th century, when a wave of suicides followed the runaway success of Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther. If an empirical test can show whether someone really is a transsexual or just going with the crowd, expect the phenomenon to fade out faster than Hammer pants.

The people who stand the most to gain from this research are in fact transsexuals.

Transsexualism should not be confused with transgenderism. Transsexualism is rooted in biology: people who believe (and may now be scientifically proven) they are trapped inside a body of the wrong sex, with no choice in the matter. Transgenderism, on the other hand, argues that gender is simply a matter of choice and completely divorced from biological sex.

Transgender activists have viciously attacked transsexuals who have dared speak up and try to distance themselves from the transgender fad. It looks as though the transsexuals have got science on their side.

This research should also sound a death-knell for dangerous “self-identification” laws. No-one can claim to be legally blind without meeting specific criteria to prove it. You can’t even get a “Disabled Parking” sticker without a medical test. If there is an empirical test for transsexualism, then no one should be allowed to legally change their gender based only on their own say-so.
