What does science say about sex differences?

This video segment is from Bill Nye's science show, which aired in 1996. It explains the role of chromosomes in determining a baby's sex:

However, Bill Nye's new and enlightened show claims that individual choice is what makes one a boy, a girl, or something in between. Sex, which is now conflated with "gender," is now understood as a social construct that can be reconstructed at will. Genetics has NOTHING to do with a person's basic identity, so one's sex, race, or even species can be changed any time. Just close your eyes and make a wish.

Ah, brave new world!

Androgyny is a socialist construct.

I, erm, believe in 2 genders only. However, just to post something contrarian:

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2106866-five-wild-lionesses-grow-a-mane-and-start-acting-like-males/

You'll notice the lionesses still behave as female. The advantage seems to be the group of lions is perceived as having more fighting strength (more males) than it really does.

I just randomly searched for the article. I saw this on a nature show 2 days ago.

Another animal the show highlighted is the Bonobo. They... have sex, constantly, with multiple partners. It's like a greeting for them. The narrator said we could learn a lot from such behavior...

Maybe I'll give up watching videos entirely.

Even back in the '90s it was still a widely accepted fact that gender was not a choice. I could not be bothered to watch Bill Nye the Degeneracy Guy even for nostalgia's sake.

Roho, watch some of these nature shows. "Science" has been co-opted by the "Cultural Marxists".

All who resist are "poorly educated" deplorables.
