Nobody does more than Bill Nye “the Science Guy” to foster the notion that science is crap.
When he’s not campaigning for people who don’t believe his Global Warming schtick to be thrown in jail, the former PBS kids’ TV star–ooh! he has a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering!–is carrying water, now, for the transgender delusion. On his new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World, this guy with a bachelor’s degree said there ain’t just two genders, male and female, but gender is “more like a kaleidoscope” (http://libertyviral.com/bill-nye-gender-ideology-guy/). Dig it–“the gender kaleidoscope.” Someone is sure to parley that into a federal grant.
By the way…”saves the world” from what? Nye says abortion is good. Maybe he saves the world from babies.
In 1996, on his PBS show, Nye said “gender” was determined by chromosomes. XX chromosome=female. XY chromosome=male. No kaleidoscope. His recent remarks would appear to conflict with his former observations.
The alleged fact-checker, Snopes.com, rushed to defend him from the charge of being against the gender spectrum before he was for it. “His understanding is evolving” [extra credit for saying it “evolves”!]. And, “Nye’s understanding of sex and gender, as well as the world’s, has grown since then.” Now you know why I don’t pay a lot of attention to Snopes.
Nye says, “We have to listen to science. And the science says we’re all on a spectrum.”
“Science says.” It’s just like “Simon says.” We offer a brief translation: “I am the smartest person here, so what I say, goes for everybody. The rest of you, shut up!”
Yup. It’s crap.
