In a recent episode of his podcast “The Poetry of Reality,” renowned atheist Richard Dawkins delves into the realm of transgender thought, expressing his skepticism and raising thought-provoking questions.
He Finds It ‘Distinctly Weird’
As an evolutionary biologist, Dawkins finds it “distinctly weird” and an “odd distortion of reality” to believe in the existence of more than two sexes, asserting that “Sex really is binary. You’re either male or female. And it’s absolutely clear.”
He Talked About the Biological Perspective
He further emphasizes this biological perspective by mentioning gamete size and chromosomes, describing the concept of self-identifying one’s sex differently as “distinctly weird.”
Questions Are Brushed Off as Hate
Dawkins discusses this matter with journalist Helen Joyce. In agreement with Dawkins, Joyce addresses the protected nature of discussions surrounding transgenderism, where asking fundamental questions is often brushed aside as hate speech.
Raising Concerns Comes With Accusations
She notes how raising concerns about allowing self-identification of sex, which might impact areas like women’s sports and incarceration facilities, can be met with accusations of bigotry.
Argues It’s a Linguistic Distinction
Joyce adds her support to Dawkins’ perspective, arguing that the identification of men as women or vice versa is a linguistic distinction rather than a scientifically rooted transformation.
She Says Surgeries Don’t Alter Biological Sex
She maintains that surgeries and medications don’t alter one’s biological sex, highlighting the crucial difference between gender identity and biological reality.
They Referred to J.K. Rowling
This viewpoint is not isolated. Notably, J.K. Rowling, the author of the beloved “Harry Potter” series, has also shared similar sentiments in the past.
Speaking the Truth Should Not Be Considered Hate Speech
Rowling, in 2020, emphasized that speaking the truth about biology and acknowledging the existence of only two sexes – male and female – should not be considered hate speech.
She argued that erasing the concept of sex hinders meaningful discussions about individuals’ lives.
Rowling Said There Were Inconsistencies
Rowling has additionally highlighted the intellectual inconsistencies inherent in transgender ideology.
Gender Binary Denial and Born in the Wrong Sex
She pointedly questions how two conflicting ideas from leftist perspectives can coexist: the denial of a sex and gender binary and the assertion that someone can be born into the wrong sex.
He Supported Rowling’s Stance
The acclaimed author found these contradictions perplexing and logically incompatible. Dawkins also expressed support for Rowling’s stance, noting the aggressive backlash she faced for expressing her views.
A Minority Is Dominating Discussions
He lamented that a small minority had managed to dominate the discourse with what he referred to as “errant nonsense.”
