    I wondered if a clash between the scientific community and the current idea of personally selected gender might conflict.

    IP It's just business.

    We used to think everything was encoded within the genome, but we now know that isn't true (or at least isn't exactly true). It is clear from the clip that what the girl is discussing sex chromosomes using common vernacular.

    I'd bet there are some other inaccuracies in the show and other similar shows. I guess since the main goal is to educate children it makes sense to do some editing, but at the same time something doesn't feel right. I'd rather just add a disclaimer that the show is 20 years old and may not represent the most up to date scientific information.

    I'm not sure what you mean here.

    What? Chromosomes still determine gender. Exceptions are when that gets screwed up and you end up with extra chromosomes. Thats a bad thing!

    And unless you are teaching English class, for the sake of this discussion, sex and gender are the same thing.

    Unless you have a genetic problem, you either have balls and a bat or a glove. Balls and bats go to the mens room and gloves in the womens room. In normal situations for the purpose of procreation one sends and the other receives. This is natures way of propagating the species. Other forms do not lead to fertilization.

    In cases of deviancy or abnormality, by definition, a small percentage of the population CHOOSE to play the game incorrectly as was designed by nature for secular humanists or by natures God for us normal traditional real Americans.

    Weird. The search continues as to why you're so retarded then.

    No. They're different words with different meanings. Simply because you use them in an incorrect context doesn't change that.

    Some functions are outside the direct control DNA and are influenced by environment, proteins enzymes etc..

    That doesn't help his case. In fact one could say we need to isolate those factors and remove them whenever it leads to abnormal behavior.

    So lets look at the arguments.

    They were born that way. Ok that leads to DNA but you are born with either XY or XX chromosomes.

    Ok then well they felt like they should be the opposite sex from an early age. This is a mental state not in line with the DNA/Chromosomes so that leads to some form of abnormality whether its from a chemical imbalance or environmental influences. Both of those can be dealt with by correcting the environment or through pharmaceutical means.

    Its liberals who use it improperly to further their trans-sex-ual agenda. There is no trans-genderism if you want to go down that road.

    Of course not. Just like there isn't race. It's a social construct. Thank you for further illustrating your lack of knowledge on the issue.

    So, you must only have sex when you have intentions of "propagating the species"? I mean, since that's the only purpose for doing it, right?

    By the way, I'm curious about these "real Americans" you speak of? I want to get this right, because my interpretations of this concept you state from your previous iterations is that this means people who happen to think and look like yourself, but I wanted to get that right before I make that determination for certain.
