You shouldn’t eat things you find on the side of the road. You shouldn’t try to extinguish a raging house fire with a bottle of vodka. You shouldn’t try to walk through airpot security completely naked with a set of guns strapped around your waist. And you especially shouldn’t get your science news, data and information from a silly leftwing progressive 90’s-era TV celebrity whose career popularity only peaked among children and soccer moms.
I think these are rather basic rules for life, but it seems some folks out there are a little divided on that last one, especially when it comes to the ever-so popular William Sanford “Bill” Nye. You might know him as Bill Nye “The Science Guy” — a title that many of us can’t help but find a bit ironic these days considering his endorsement and support of things like climate change and, most recently, “transgenderism.” As you’ve probably heard by now, Nye recently teamed up with actress Rachel Bloom (whoever she is) to produce and debut a cheery little LGBT sex-themed musical ditty on his new Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World. (Side note: Has Billy Nye actually ever saved anything?) During the episode, Nye introduces Bloom’s performance as something “very special” — which I guess could be true if your definition of “special” happens to include watching people dance, sing and rap about sexual fluidity, genitalia and transgendered evolution. The song is appropriately titled “My Sex Junk” and includes highly inspirational and poetic lines like:
This world of ours is so full of choice. But must I choose only between John or Joyce? Are my options only hard or moist? My vagina has its own voice.”
And like this too:
Versatile love may have some butt stuff / It’s evolution, ain’t nothing new / There’s nothing taboo about a sex stew.”
Wow. How science-y.
Obviously this is the deranged and psychotic behavior of a desperate lunatic whose battered ego can’t accept the fact that he’s no longer culturally relevant (and perhaps never was to begin with), but that hasn’t stopped the media and most of America from lapping it up like chocolate milk. Once the video was published to YouTube, it was only a matter of minutes before it went viral, although it does currently have over 24,000 “thumbs down” and only 390 “thumbs up.” Either way, it was provocative and controversial enough to garner thousands of hits — even if just from morbid curiosity on the part of most people — which was probably one of Nye’s original goals all along.
Now, I think there are plenty of points that can and should be made here, but a couple in particular are worth addressing, particularly as the transgenderism narrative continues to surface in the news, with FOX’s Tucker Carlson even sitting down for an interview with Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner the other night. Let’s get the most obvious out of the way:
It's time to stop pretending that transgenderism is real.
With all of the hype, celebrity status and entertainment shock value surrounding the faux narrative of being “trans,” science only recognizes it insofar as labeling it “gender dysphoria” — which is nothing more than “the condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female to be opposite to one’s biological sex.”
In other words, what the mainstream media and leftists refer to as “transgenderism” is just a mental, emotional and psychological disorder (not to mention a spiritual one as well, but that’s a debate for another time) so there’s no real scientific basis for recognizing it to be legitimate. After all, just because you feel something to be true, doesn’t make it so. If I wake up in the morning and “feel” like a flat-footed, duck-billed platypus, it doesn’t make me one. I’m still a human being no matter what my emotions or brainwaves might wish. And I imagine if I decided to announce to my family that I’ve decided to “come out” as a semiaquatic, egg-laying mammal, they would be perfectly within their rights to call a psychiatrist and bring out the butterfly nets.
Similarly, when a man puts on a dress, Stilettos and some eyeshadow and declares that he’s now a woman, he’s not right or correct in that statement. He’s wrong, silly, delusional and/or completely insane. There is no scenario in reality where a man is a woman or a woman is a man. Men cannot menstruate or become pregnant. Similarly, women don’t possess male genitalia or male chromosomes. They never can and never will. This should be obvious to anyone who passed basic middle school biology, but I guess that doesn’t include Bill Nye, who people still seem to think is a “science guy.”
So, despite what a 90’s children’s pop culture icon says, nothing about “transgenderism” is real or scientific. By it’s very definition, it’s actually the complete opposite.
Bill Nye is a political activist, actor and entertainer, not a scientist.
Sadly, too many folks are under the false impression that Nye is an actual scientist just because he wears a lab coat and graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Unfortunately, in order to be a scientist, you actually have to, you know, apply the scientific method to the things you that talk about and study. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not actually dependent upon wearing whimsically oversized bowties or hosting a Saturday morning Disney kid’s show.
With regards to transgenderism, Nye knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that every shred of scientific evidence is against him on this topic, so instead he’s content to go on living his life as a political activist and entertainer, which is a problem because politics and entertainment almost always have agendas. Science is supposed to be “agenda-less." It’s supposed to deal only with facts, evidence, proof, trial and error. Politics, on the other hand, is always laced with commentary, opinion, philosophy, dirty money and plenty of bias. He can’t be “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and Bill Nye the “Transgenderism-is-real-because-I-want-the-Left-to-keep-winning-elections” Guy. At some point he’ll have to choose and, judging from this video, it seems he already has.
The truth is, if Bill Nye had any interest whatsoever in actual science — and the pursuit of evidence and facts — he’d be questioning the veracity of transgenderism and those who subscribe to it, not affirming its authenticity in the face of massive scientific disproval while simultaneously destroying what little is left of his credibility.
Besides, shouldn’t science always ask more questions than anything else?
