Bonus points for using "science" as a really lazy appeal to authority. Because plenty of qualified scientists clearly didn't get this particular memo.

I love the idea that "science" recognizes anything. What pronouns do Science use? Where I can I go to meet Science?

The appeals to science bring back memories of that IT Crowd episode where the boys trick Jen into believing that a black box is the entirety of the Internet. That box is what I picture when someone acts as though all of scientific inquiry can be reduced to a monolith. Somehow, I doubt the Elders of Science granted permission for these morons to invoke their name in pushing this nonsense!

I would love them to name the other 4 sexes science recognizes. I'll settle for even 1 more.

Right? What are the names of the sexes? How do they reproduce? What are their secondary sex characteristics? How do they go through puberty? I would like at least one of these questions answered

They’d probably start naming intersex conditions, completely ignoring that intersex doesn’t actually mean between sexes.

Where is this 6 sexes bullshit coming from? First a Texas senator and now this idiot.

it's because there was an article going around about the 6 most common human karyotypes (= combination of X and Y chromosome). What they're not saying is that 1. 4 of those are quite rare and 2. They can all still be clearly assigned to one of the two human sexes.

A blog post written by some financial advisor. Yes that’s literally the whole thing.

I wouldn’t trust anyone that stupid to advise me about anything, least of all my money!

He looks like kin of Challenor, so I'm not surprised.

How do 6 people find the time in their schedules to make a baby together? Doodlepoll?

Reminds me of that very strange old SF story “Venus and the Seven Sexes”.

Certain kinds of molds have hundreds of sexes. What does that have to do with humans? Name the gametes, buddy.

This is a perfect three-sentence answer when they start spouting this kind of shit. Stealing! Thanks.

Science also used to support eugenics, as in POC were viewed as genetically inferior hence thousands of women of color were forced to undergo hysterectomies. “Science” isn’t always right or moral.

I mean yes, for medicine testing and such they sometimes have multiple categories based around hormonal profiles and the link. That's not what we're talking about when it comes to restrooms.
