Scientific American magazine was mocked and ridiculed over bizarre claims it made about binary sex roles in Western science in a series of tweets.
The claims were a part of a Twitter thread attempting to recast the binary sexual identities in order to fit the transgender agenda.
“Before the late 18th century, Western science recognized only one sex—the male—and considered the female body an inferior version of it. The shift historians call the ‘two-sex model’ served mainly to reinforce gender and racial divisions by tying social status to the body,” read the sixth tweet in the series of seven.
“It’s not just complex in the context of intersex,” read a quote from medical anthropologist Katrina Karkazis. “Our bodies are far more variable than our categories. Part of what’s happened is people become slotted into this binary framework.”
Critics of the claim lined up on social media to cast scorn on the science magazine and make their arguments against the claim.
