A Democrat from Texas has become a laughing stock for claiming that there are “six sexes” instead of the two that science and biology tells us there are.
State Rep. James Talarico made his absurd statement during a meeting of the Public Education Committee in which the question of transgender athletes was being discussed.
Talarico was incensed that the bill under discussion only spoke of male and female genders.
“The bill seems to think there are two,” Talarico said of the number of genders mentioned in the bill.
This doofus went on, adding, “The one thing I want us to all be aware of is that modern science obviously recognizes that there are many more than two biological sexes.”
“In fact, there are six, which honestly, Rep. Hefner, surprised me, too,” Talario said.
Uh, no. Leftist activist pretending to be scientists say that. Actual science proves the political blathering to be false.
Talarico then tried on his sciency hat.
There are “six really common biological sexes,” he said, based on X and Y chromosomes — not just XX (female) and XY (male), but also single X, XXY, XYY and XXXY.
“The point is that biologically speaking, scientifically speaking, sex is a spectrum, and oftentimes can be very ambiguous,” he exclaimed.
However, the fact is that the other configurations Talarico was talking about are extremely uncommon. Further, they are disorders, not normal genders.
So, what is this dope’s problem?
He went to college. Only well-educated idiots can believe this garbage.
