    When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational childrens show Bill Nye the Science Guy cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine ones gender. The original broadcast of the episode, entitled 'Probability', saw a young woman explain (at 9:07 below): Im a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, cause the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2, a young woman says in the show. See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl.
  • Republicans split on attacking climate science (Hoax deniers walk amongst us?)

    The Hill ^ | 12/27/15 | Timothy Cama
    The Republican Party is divided over whether to attack the science of climate change when opposing liberal policies. Many of the most vocal Republicans say they have significant problems with the scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that greenhouse gas emissions from human activity is the main cause. The skeptics include presidential hopefuls Ben Carson and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Capitol Hill chairmen Sen. Jim Inhofe (Okla.) and Rep. Lamar Smith (Texas). But others in the GOP aren't interested in litigating the science. They say it's more important - and far easier - to show that Democratic...
  • Robert Spitzer, Jewish American Psychiatrist Who 'Normalized' Homosexuality, Dies at 83

    Dr. Robert Spitzer, a Jewish American psychiatrist who played a leading role in establishing agreed-upon standards to describe mental disorders and eliminating homosexuality's designation as a pathology, died Friday in Seattle. He was 83. Gay-rights activists credit Spitzer with removing homosexuality from the list of mental disorders in the D.S.M. in 1973. He decided to push for the change after he met with gay activists and determined that homosexuality could not be a disorder if gay people were comfortable with their sexuality. At the time of the psychiatric profession's debate over homosexuality, Spitzer told the Washington Post: "A medical disorder...

    NEW YORK CITY, December 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The New York City Commission on Human Rights has issued rules that fine employers for referring to transsexuals by their real gender. The new “guidance” (“NYC Pronoun Ban”), which has power to levy hefty fines against “violators” who “discriminate,” is an extension of the New York City Human Rights Law, based on the city’s laws against gender discrimination. Failing to use an individual’s preferred name or pronoun, under the new ban, will be considered a violation of New York City Human Rights Law, punishable by fines up to $250,000. “Refusal to use...

    LE BOURGET, France — One of the smartest ways to fight global warming is putting a price on carbon dioxide pollution, some key world leaders said at Monday's international climate summit. Either a tax on carbon dioxide emissions or trading carbon pollution like pork bellies, which puts a price on carbon, will help use capitalism to get closer to a day when the world isn't adding heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere, according to leaders of France, Germany, Canada, Chile, Mexico and Ethiopia, as well as heads of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development....

    The Blaze ^ | Nov. 23, 2015 9:11am
    Starting November 30, people from all around the world will be (or at least should be) converging towards Paris for the much-talked Climate Conference. As can be expected from such an event, the climate hysteria will be at the forefront of the talks in hopes to solve the (imaginary) climate problem. Yes, imaginary. Most of what you hear about climate in the media is either false or hidden from your sight – fueling fear is very profitable for the media. So no, the climate is not getting hotter and hotter contrary to what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claims....

    EPA Chief Gina McCarthy wants the world to stop using hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in air conditioners and other consumers products as part of President Barack Obama's plan to fight global warming. McCarthy is so determined to make this happen, she's taking the lead role at an ongoing United Nations summit to expand the current global treaty covering ozone-depleting substances. The EPA chief hopes that her agency's recent HFC regulations will convince other countries to join the U.S. in limiting the chemicals. "Because of the importance of taking aggressive action on these chemicals to achieve global climate goals, I will be leading...

    To keep up with the adventures of the Keswani family, visit PEOPLE.com/keswanis. It's been a big year for the transgender community, thanks in large part to Caitlyn Jenner. But not every member of the community is 66: Devina Keswani, the youngest of three children in PEOPLE's new web series, The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family, and a proud Girl Scout, is just 6. "One [of my classmates] hates transgender, and he hates me because I'm transgender," Devina says, adding, "Before that he liked me, but now he hates me. He spits at me and pushes me."

    A federal judge has denied a transgender teenagers request to allow him to use the same bathroom as his peers at his public school in Virginia. Instead, the judge ruled Friday, the teenager must continue using a separate, private bathroom that he has said makes him feel singled out and humiliated. Gavin Grimm, a teenage boy who was born female, used the boys bathroom for seven weeks with no problem, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought a lawsuit against the Gloucester County School Board on his behalf. But then parents heard about the teen using the boys...

    A feminist magazine has declared that men who like breasts are sexist. In an article titled, So Youre a Breasts Man? Here Are 3 Reasons That Could Be Sexist, Jenika McCrayer explains why men who are sexually attracted to women with breasts are misogynists. McCrayer explains that under a patriarchal system were taught to believe that the female body exists solely for a mans sexual pleasure and entertainment. She then explains several reasons why liking breasts is a bad thing. First, It Dangerously Conflates Attraction and Fetishization. She explains, breasts are not solely for aesthetic or sexual purposes. They have...

    This afternoon, Fact Check.org produced a fact-check that ostensibly criticizes U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) for his contention that there has never been an instance of ground water contamination caused by hydraulic fracturing. Of course, this piece isnt really about Inhofe at all; but before we get into that, we cant help but wonder why they are fact-checking Inhofe and not former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson or Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz or Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell all of whom have said exactly the same thing. Rather than a fact-check, it reads more like an advocacy...

    One of the most admirable things about Europe is that most (if not all) of the right-wing rhetoric that you hear in the US is explicitly against the law there. For example, attempting to link Islam with terrorism, saying that gay marriage isnt really marriage, or saying that trans women arent really women would get you charged with discrimination and/or incitement to hatred. Numerous European public figures have been charged with hate crimes for implying that large-scale immigration is connected to higher crime. In fact, a politician in Sweden was prosecuted for hate crimes for posting statistics about immigrant crime...

    The early American settlers called it "the starving time," and accounts of the winter of 1609-1610 were so ghastly, and so morbid, that scholars weren't sure if the stories were true. George Percy, then president of the English settlement of Jamestown in Virginia, wrote that settlers ate horses, then cats and dogs, then boots and bits of leather, and, finally, one another. "One of our colony murdered his wife, ripped the child out of her womb and threw it into the river, and after chopped the mother in pieces and salted her for his food," wrote Percy, who then ordered...

    Melvin Konner, a Professor of Anthropology and Behavioral Biology at Emory University, believes that women will lead the world to a better place. More specifically, he argues, male biology has brought the world war, corruption, and scandal. He wrote his opinions down in an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal titled, A Better World, Run by Women. Women, he believes, do not become corrupt, they are not scandalous, and shall not ever plunge nations or the world into war. Females, he explains bluntly, are superior to men in most ways that will count in the future because of...

    Zaneta Rago, the Director of Rutgers Social Justice Center, said that she was surprised there were not more millennials who believed that gender exists on a spectrum. It's wonderful that approximately half of the respondents understood gender as a spectrum, but that means we're only half way there," she said. Daniella Anconetami, a School of Arts and Sciences first-year student, said that she believes in the gender spectrum. She said that she discovered that gender wasnt black and white in high school, and said that her opinions about gender identity changed after meeting someone who was transgender in high school....

That means it's time to announce the winner of this year's Censor of the Year Award. As you already know from the headline, our recipient is Neil deGrasse Tyson. COTY, as it's called for short, recognizes achievement in thwarting an open and informed discussion of science and scientific controversies. It is a serious thing -- since censorship is serious and often but not always casting...

As part of the experiment, premature infants were randomly assigned to receive higher or lower levels of oxygen. Those receiving lower levels of oxygen were more likely to die, while those receiving higher levels of...

    The recent surge in abortion laws -- more were enacted between 2011 and 2013 than in the previous decade -- met both success and defeat in court challenges in 2014. That fight over women's access to abortion likely will continue in the months to come, as both houses of U.S. Congress will be Republican-led, as will even more state houses. What issues will be at the battle lines? Ten states have laws in place banning abortion after 20 weeks; Nebraska was the first to pass theirs, in 2010. Proponents argue that 20 weeks is when a fetus can begin to...
