An anthropology professor claims that you cannot tell whether or not a skeleton belongs to a male or a female. Of course, that is demonstrably false. The pelvis of a skeleton alone tells you whether or not the skeleton belongs to a male or a female.
There is an oval shaped hole in the pelvis called the pelvic inlet. In females, the pelvic inlet has a larger diameter in the left/right axis than it does front to back. In males, it is larger in the front/back axis than it is in the left/right.
At the base of the pelvis, there is a structure called the public arch. In females, the angle of the pubic arch is greater than or equal to 90 degrees, and in males it is less than 90 degrees.
Both of these facts are due to the fact that the female pelvis needs to accommodate the head of a fetus during childbirth. This isn’t open for debate, it’s merely scientific fact. There are those who would claim that those born with a trisomy at the 23rd chromosome means that we can’t use DNA to define a man or a woman. I say that’s bullshit. There are many birth defects that involve trisomies, but those are genetic defects, abnormalities that occur less than 5 times in every 1,000 births. It certainly doesn’t mean that the person with this abnormality gets to pick whether or not they are a man or woman on any given day of the week.
That doesn’t stop major universities and healthcare facilities from playing this stupid, woke game. The University of Florida runs its own healthcare system, called UFHealth. That system runs a total of 11 hospitals in the north central Florida region. That University also has declared an official transgender policy(pdf warning):
Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Repeated use of incorrect pronouns can be offensive, harassing, and hostile! Research has demonstrated that respecting someone’s pronouns creates a safe, welcoming space and can have positive health outcomes
They are permitting patients to register as either male or female, whatever they choose. Why not let people register as being a whale, or a unicorn? If I can pick my gender, facts be damned, then why not let me pick my own species? Can I identify as someone who gets free healthcare?
If you come in to the emergency room and tell me that you are having problems urinating, you are going to get a totally different set of lab tests if you are a man than if you are a woman.
The left is not the party of science, and as long as they continue to ignore objective reality, they can’t realistically claim to be.
