Default Netflix Edits ‘Bill Nye’ Episode to Remove Segment Saying Chromosomes Determine Gende

Liberal definition of "science" = Pretend what was said scientifically doesn't count...

Netflix Edits ‘Bill Nye’ Episode to Remove Segment Saying Chromosomes Determine Gender


Quote:
When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children's show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one's gender.

In the original episode, titled "Probability," a young woman told viewers, "I'm a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2."

"See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, " the young woman continued. "See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy."

But in the version of the episode uploaded to Netflix, the segment has been cut entirely. While noncontroversial at the time, the 1996 segment appears to contradict Netflix's new series "Bill Nye Saves the World."

The new show endorses a socially liberal understanding of gender, under which gender is defined by self-identification rather than genetics and there are more than just the two traditional genders.

Gender is defined by the language that makes certain words masculine or feminine. Sex is what makes each person in the human race male or female.

Put a cork in it, liberals.

the truth comes out, many on the left really aren't that interested in SCIENCE.
Many don't really love and revere it as they claim.
many just wants to use Science as back-up ...or as a cover... for their personal, social and political preferences.
Many atheist have admitted as much.

People asserted for years their was "gay" gene. That concept is still in the air but since there's no scientific proof of it it's not a big part of the propaganda anymore.
Bottom line they don't CARE if there's a gene or not.

the Science that a man has a Y chromosome and male genitals is not considered a good reason to label people male or female. the scientific evidence is CLEAR so why not? it's Scientific. But somehow the "March for Science" is OK with FEELINGS and personal mindsets trumping science there as well.

the same for the abortion, the evidence is CLEAR and when push comes to shove Uncontested. the pre born child is a separate human being. period.
the Science SHOULD settle the matter. But FEELINGS and personal desires for having children become the deciding factors.

It's not about science being the final authority for reality and the basis of right actions.
never has been.

Exactly!...

I'm reminded of a Liberal group that commissioned a university study on the hazards of fracking on water...They wanted the results to be so horrible they could use the study as the basis for their argument...So the university did the study and found there were NO hazards of fracking on water...

...and instead of revealing the results, publicly, and saying "Hey! "SCIENCE" proved out argument false! Thank God for SCIENCE!!!, they simply HID the results...

Research university hides results of fracking study which fails to prove it’s dangerous

Quote:
Why would a public research university boasting a top-100 geology program deliberately hide its work? Because, as lead researcher Amy Townsend-Small explained, “our funders, the groups that had given us funding in the past, were a little disappointed in our results. They feel that fracking is scary and so they were hoping our data could point to a reason to ban it.”
