Editorial: The US Department of Health and Human Services proposes to establish a legal definition of whether someone is male or female based on the genitals they are born with. This proposal has no foundation in science and should be abandoned.
Wow a "your proposal is anti science" from Nature is a pretty big deal #trans #AntiTransIsAntiScience
Shares of this article appreciated. It matters. It helps. This is an up to date scientific stance from a prestigious scientific journal. Instituting a policy with a narrow definition of sex or gender & no basis in science would be a major step backwards.
Nature editorial agrees with NYTimes OPED
Research does not support the Trump administration’s proposed move to narrow the definition of gender.
'US proposal for defining gender has no basis in science. A move to classify people on the basis of anatomy or genetics should be abandoned.' #TransRightsAreHumanRights

In the latest “The idea that science can make definitive conclusions about a person’s sex or gender is fundamentally flawed” @500ws_montreal @500womensci @500QueerSci #gender #sex
“Political attempts to pigeonhole people have nothing to do with science and everything to do with stripping away rights and recognition from those whose identity does not correspond with outdated ideas of sex and gender.” FYI this #TransDayofRemembrance
I have been very critical of editorial board in the past. They got it right with this editorial. #WontBeErased #transrightsarehumanrights
I don't want to alarm anyone, but this just got published in . Were they hacked or what?? "US proposal for defining gender has no basis in science"
This journal has outwoked its name.
👉Sex: classification based on internal/external bodily characteristics 👉Gender: social construct related to biological differences, also rooted in culture, society, individual behaviour 👉Science says: Sex is more complex than ♂️♀️, gender is a spectrum
Nature: ”The research and medical community now sees sex as more complex than male and female, and gender as a spectrum that includes transgender people and those who identify as neither male nor female.” #sukupuolisyrjinta

It’s also interesting to point out Nature magazine recently put out this statement about Trump’s planned attacked on trans rights. Once again, when it comes to bio sex, it’s complicated.
US proposal for defining gender has no basis in science
. editorial: There's an "expert consensus" that "sex is more complex than male and female." But for the entire history of science up until a few years ago there was an expert consensus that it isn't. What changed? Science...or politics?
