Just want to take a moment to marvel about a publication called Scientific American running this piece. Truly terrifying, extraordinary times.

Moving on. I was wondering if anyone had done a takedown of this stupid article since I felt like it was needed, and thought if it hadn’t been rebutted already then I would have a crack at it. I found this

Which although is a bit more cautious and polite than I think it needs to be, covers the bases pretty well. Just wanted to share as a resource. Countering this misinformation is important when you see it, if you can!

Thanks for this. Scientific American seems to be very unscientific now. I remember their popular ‘sex is a spectrum’ article written by a TIM which didn’t actually prove anything of the sort. Just ‘but intersex!’ over and over again. Also I can never get over the fact the TIM author’s chosen name was ‘Simon(e)’ with the brackets included. I(t) make(s) m(e) laug(h) ever(y) tim(e)

I looked up the parent company, Springer Scientific --> Holtzbrinck Publishing Group (also own MacMillan publishing, St. Maarten's Press, and Hayden McNeil (textbooks). I've seen a lot of pro trans medical research articles written by doctors who work for Hayden McNeil.

None of this is coincidental.
