My conspiracy theory continues to be proven. The question is which conspiracy I choose to apply.
With all our food sources being destroyed, thanks God for bugs.
And do we finally have proof of a third sex? Scientific American thinks so.
Here is some news:
- A whistle blower has disclosed that the FBI has documents proving that Joe Biden, while he was Vice President, took bribes from foreign countries for policy changes.
- Congress has asked the Director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, to provide these documents.
- These documents are unclassified.
- Congress wants to know what the FBI has done to investigate this.
- The White House says it is a Republican deflection from their own failures, of course.
- No one knows who the whistleblower is.
- Bud Light has lost 25% of their profits and they are doing everything to fix this mess including the genius that came up with this stupid idea of taking a trans person to push their beer.
- Everything except apologize.
- If they just apologized and said they’d never do this again, this would all be over.
- There was another mass shooting in Atlanta yesterday.
- A man walked into a waiting room of a medical center and started shooting.
- Five people were shot, one killed and three are in critical condition.
- The man had mental problems and was on medication.
- He was 24-year old.
- This will be forgotten because he was black and he was using a hand gun. A gun he probably shouldn’t have had because he had mental problems.
- There is no motive released yet.
Still a Coincidence
We have some serious issues that are attacking our food supply, our energy and the chemicals we need to create all of the above. We have food processing plants being destroyed, farms catching fires and exploding, killing live stock, trains spilling chemicals, pipelines being destroyed and animals just dying out of nowhere and for no reason.
Here’s another story that happened about two weeks ago.
According to Fox News:
Texas authorities are investigating the deaths of six cattle that were found with their tongues removed, no blood spilled and no signs of struggle.
The cattle were found along a Texas highway in Madison, Brazos, and Robertson County. Ranchers told the Madison County Sheriff’s Office that a six-year-old longhorn-cross cow had been found, lying on her side and mutilated.
A straight, clean cut had been made with “apparent precision” to remove the hide around the cow’s mouth on one side – leaving the mat under the removed hide untouched, the sheriff’s office said. The tongue had also been completely removed with no blood spill.
The sheriff’s office said there were no signs of struggle, and there were no signs of footprints or tire tracks in the area.
How many incidents of this crap are we going to have to see before we begin to question why it is happening? We didn’t see any of this crap happening during the Trump administration.
Hmm, Which Is It?
Here is a weird story.
According to the New York Post:
This tip may bug some parents.
In a new essay for Insider, food writer Tiffany Leigh revealed that she feeds her 18-month-old daughter crickets as a source of protein — claiming it saves her hundreds of dollars on grocery bills.
The Toronto mom started to supplement her daughter’s more costly protein diet of beef, chicken and pork with whole roasted crickets, cricket protein powder and Cheeto-like cricket puff snacks.
She said she’s been able to cut down her grocery bill of $250 to $300 a week to between $150 and $200.
In an email to The Post on Thursday, Leigh explained that she had fallen into a “cooking rut” at home, which is partially what inspired her.
“I found myself making the same things over and over again for our family (some of which – my baby no longer showed interest in eating),” Leigh wrote.
“Incidentally, Entomo Farms (where I get my cricket products from) popped up on my radar – I looked into it and saw some products that could (easily and safely) be incorporated into our meal and snack times.”
She also noted that she doesn’t force her baby to do things that she is not comfortable with, and wasn’t concerned about potential contaminants because she got a virtual tour of the Farm.
Oh, well, I mean, if she got a virtual tour of the farm, what’s the problem.
I know there is this big push to eat bugs because cows piss off the sun monster and all but bugs do not provide the nutrients that animal meat does. Some bugs also contains toxins that human beings cannot consume. Considering we haven’t eaten bugs ong term, we may not know what those toxins are. Finally, bugs are gross. Sorry, they are.
I don’t believe this story. If it’s true, this broad is a child abuser but I don’t think it’s true. I’m sure this broad, who works for a food magazine, does not eat bugs.
Figure It Out
An industry that has done a ton of harm to society but has remained unregulated and out of sight is finally facing a little bit of scrutiny. They respond to it with confusion.
According to the BBC:
Adult content website Pornhub has blocked access to would-be users in Utah, a day before a new state age verification law goes into effect.
The new law requires pornographic websites to verify the age of users each time they use the website or potentially face lawsuits.
Utah residents visiting the website are now greeted with a message arguing that the law will put privacy “at risk”.
Pornography was declared a public health crisis in Utah in 2016.
The Utah age verification law, known as SB287, was passed by state lawmakers and signed by governor Spencer Cox in March.
As part of the law, pornographic companies must verify the age of users using a “digitised verification card”, which officials say will help prevent young people from accessing sexually explicit content.
Starting on Tuesday, Utah residents who attempted to access Pornhub instead saw a video message featuring adult film actress – and one-time US presidential hopeful – Cherie DeVille.
“While safety and compliance are at the forefront of our mission, giving your ID card every time you want to visit an adult platform is not the most effective solution for protecting our users,” Deville says in the video.
“In fact, [it] will put children and your privacy at risk.”
The video calls on lawmakers to “identify users by their device” rather than by their digital ID, and argues that the move may drive users to “sites with far fewer safety measures in place”.
The big complaint from the porn industry is that the law is vague, there is not digital identification available and they don’t know how to actually verify their users.
I call BS.
These guys are smart enough to get some of the weirdest shit in the world online. They have three dimensional crap for Christ’s sake, they know how to work with technology.
They are also not the only people that have to deal with this. Cigarette companies, alcohol companies and any purchasing website requires proof of identity and/or age. If they can’t figure it out, maybe they shouldn’t be on the Internet.
Hell, they just don’t want to do it. And screw free speech here. This is keeping porn away from kids. They just have to do it.
Is There an Answer in There Some Place?
Scientific American has released an article by a professor of anthropology from Princeton. He has proof that sex in human is not a binary and that there is more than two sexes. Yay!
His name is Augustin Fuentes. A little FYI here: He has written a couple of books called Why We Believe: Evolution and the Human Way of Being and Race, Monogamy and Other Lies They Told You: Busting Myths about Human Nature. To say they were best sellers might be a stretch. The only people reading these books are probably his students who are forced to buy them.
Let’s go through it and see what kind of enlightenment he can bring us.
There are those, politicians, pundits and even a few scientists, who maintain that whether our bodies make ova or sperm are all we need to know about sex. They assert that men and women are defined by their production of these gamete cells, making them a distinct biological binary pair, and that our legal rights and social possibilities should flow from this divide. Men are men. Women are women. Simple.
Last year’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings played host to this contention when Republican Congressional representatives upset at the nominee’s refusal to define “woman” took it on themselves to define the term; they came up with “the weaker sex,” “a mother,” and “no tallywhacker.” That human sex rests on a biological binary of making either sperm or ova underlies all these claims.
This is bad science. The production of gametes does not sufficiently describe sex biology in animals, nor is it the definition of a woman or a man.
Oh, jeez, he’s already going on assumptions of what people think and he’s already wrong. There’s a bit more to the differences of men and women than having a vagina and balls:
- Men are bigger than women.
- Men have a different skeletal system than women.
- Men have different pelvises than women.
- Men have more muscle mass than women.
- Men have different hormones than women.
- Men’s organs and physiology are different.
- Men have different DNA than women.
- And, oh yeah, men have ball and a penis and women have a vagina.
This guys whole argument is shot right off the bat.
The animal kingdom does not limit itself to only one biological binary regarding how a species makes gametes. Scientifically speaking, animals with the capacity to produce ova are generally called “female” and sperm producers “male.” While most animal species fall into the “two types of gametes produced by two versions of the reproductive tract” model, many don’t. Some worms produce both. Some fish start producing one kind and then switch to the other, and some switch back and forth throughout their lives. There are even lizards that have done away with one type all together. Among our fellow mammals, which are less freewheeling because of the twin constraints of lactation and live birth, there are varied connections between gametes and body fat, body size, muscles, metabolism, brain function and much more.
While sperm and ova matter, they are not the entirety of biology and don’t tell us all we need to know about sex, especially human sex.
Problem: Human beings and other mammals aren’t worms or lizards. Humans and mammals aren’t fish and birds either. We don’t breathe under water, fly or lay eggs. What is the point of comparing us to a species of animal that we have no relation to?
Let me be clear: I am not arguing that differences in sex biology do not matter. They do. Nor am I asserting that reproductive physiology is not an important aspect of all animal lives. For example, humans are mammals, and the specifics of gestation and lactation require bodily differences that shape human physiologies, societies and experiences. But even so, most bodily systems overlap extensively across large (ova) and small (sperm) gamete producers, and the patterns of physiology and behavior in relation to birth and care of offspring are not universal across species. For example, in many mammal species, ova producers do most of the infant care. But in some species, sperm producers do, and in a very few species they even lactate. In others, there is substantial investment by both sexes.
Problem: All other species of mammal sex is binary. The only mammal that sex is not binary are human beings. But, six paragraphs into this, he still has not discussed what the third sex is. Or the fourth sex or tenth sex.
The bottom line is that while animal gametes can be described as binary (of two distinct kinds), the physiological systems, behaviors and individuals that produce them are not. This reality of sex biology is well summarized by a group of biologists who recently wrote: “Reliance on strict binary categories of sex fails to accurately capture the diverse and nuanced nature of sex.”
We know that humans exhibit a range of biological and behavioral patterns related to sex biology that overlap and diverge. Producing ova or sperm does not tell us everything (or even most things) biologically or socially, about an individual’s childcare capacity, homemaking tendencies, sexual attractions, interest in literature, engineering and math capabilities or tendencies towards gossip, violence, compassion, sense of identity, or love of, and competence for, sports. Gametes and gamete production physiology, by themselves, are only a part of the entirety of human lives. Plentiful data and analyses support the assertions that sex is very complex in humans and that binary and simplistic explanations for human sex biology are either wholly incorrect or substantially incomplete.
In other words, there are feminine men and masculine women. We have always had terms for that. Tom boy, fops, gay, lesbian. There are lots of term that describe feminine men and masculine women. But a woman who is a tom boy does not make that woman a man. Personality does not change one’s physical sex.
Let’s use me as an example. I like cooking. I like a neat house and will clean. I do the laundry. I can iron. I can sew. I do a lot of things that can be said is feminine. That does not mean I’m a woman.
For humans, sex is dynamic, biological, cultural and enmeshed in feedback cycles with our environments, ecologies and multiple physiological and social processes.
So when someone states that “An organism’s sex is defined by the type of gamete (sperm or ova) it has the function of producing” and argues that legal and social policy should be “rooted in properties of bodies,” they are not really talking about gametes and sex biology. They are arguing for a specific political, and discriminatory, definition of what is “natural” and “right” for humans based on a false representation of biology. Over the past few centuries this process of misrepresentation of biology was, and still is, used to deny women rights and to justify legal and societal misogyny and inequity, to justify slavery, racialization, racism and to enforce multiple forms of discrimination and bias. Today dishonest ascriptions of what biology is are being deployed to restrict women’s bodily autonomy, target LGBTQIA+ individuals broadly and, most recently, attack the rights of transexual and transgender people.
Waiting to here about a sex within human beings that is outside male and female? Well, you’ll be waiting a while. He never defines one. That’s the end of the article.
The title of this article is Here’s Why Sex is Not a Binary. In this article, in Scientific American, Fuentes says sex is not a binary because there are lizards and worms and we all have different personalities. That’s it.
