Netflix under fire for allegedly editing old Bill Nye episode stating there are only two genders

Mike GwilliamRebel Columnist

Netflix has apparently edited an old episode of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” titled “Probability” in which it says chromosomes determine one's gender.

In the original episode, a woman tells viewers, “I'm a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”



“See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, " the young woman continued. "See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy,” she adds.

However, on the Netflix episode, the segment has been cut completely and the show transitions to the following segment instead.

As The Washington Free Beacon points out, the 1996 segment appears to contradict Netflix's new series “Bill Nye Saves the World.”

It is unknown if this edit was made when the show was first uploaded or if it was modified afterwards following Bill Nye's stance on gender identity.

Andrew Stephenson, I came across this interesting article and suggest you read it.

I found this one to be very interesting, take the time to read it without your bias interfering

This one too,

I would like to point out something very obvious to Andrew Stephenson, the “movement” should completely step away from supporting giving children hormones or signing them up for surgical interference. Parents and doctors who allow this are extremists and cannot or will not take any time to contemplate the future consequences. Short -sighted and ignorant, allowing children to be guinea pigs is appalling.

Andrew Stephenson they do not exist. Someone thinking they are a different gender does not make them that. Sorry to bring up reality.

there is two genders, male and female. Everything else is a sexual preference. And i don’t give two shits what you do in the bedroom or who you choose to hold hands with or kiss. But when it comes to a bathroom, you go to the one that matches your physical bits.

Andrew Stephenson please show us the science that says there are 32 or whatever genders? LOL!
And an intersex individual can go get the mental help they need or ignore their idiot mother who makes them think they are not what they are.”

There aren’t 32 discrete genders, but there also aren’t just two. It’s something of a continuum. The scientific proof that they exist is … the fact they exist. Pretty hard to refute that one. (Ultimately, that’s a personal freedom issue).

Intersex refers to physically ambiguous, which happens (although genetic anomalies such as XXY or XO, or androgen insensitive individuals are also caategorized as such)

Poor Bill Nye, his cover has been blown; turns out he isn’t the Science Guy after all!

Andrew, biology has proven that there are two genders.

Bill Nye is only conjecturing. He has no scientific evidence that gender is on some sort of scale.

But I think you actually know that there are only two genders and you are just being … well, to be polite I will just use the term “disingenuous”. "

Gender is purely a social construct, and we can see by the existence of a spectrum, that it lies on a spectrum (this has always existed, but only recently and mostly in cities where diversity is embraced has it become socially acceptable to show it in public). Sex is a bit more definitive, but even that’s not necessarily strictly linked to genetics, gender, or sexual preference.

God created male and female only! "

So ,what’s an intersex individual to do?

I hope they didn’t invest more in the show than say buying the rights to “Sharknado”. Nye is a engineer playing at science, and not well.

With that said, Netflix shouldn’t try to cover up its bad content. It should put more warnings on its programs though. The show is NOT for kids.

And I thought Common Core was an evil agenda from Hell…how Newspeak of Netflix.

If I am shown absolute undeniable factual evidence, real scientific proof (not somebody’s idiotic theory) that there are more than two genders, then I will believe it.

I have no problems with science. I have a problem with people making their theories and then presenting them a factual truth without going through the entire scientific process.

Today’s "scientists like to skip the create the theory, testing and proving stage to jump directly to the “this_is_now_absolute_fact_and_do_not_dare_question_me” stage.

And then there is the lemming followers who take for absolute fact anything a “scientist” says because it fits their “progressive” beliefs.

Hi Mongrel,

I do agree, “SJW” do seem to believes scientific evidence.

Andrew,

That is a great satirical statement about today’s idiotic pseudo-science. Problem is SJW’s actually would believe your statement.

Ah, the turning wheel of scientific progress. It’s always amazing to see how little we knew 20 years ago.
