More Chromosomes Than Just XX and XY
They will then follow those initial attack comments up by saying, "If you have XX chromosomes, you are a woman. If you have XY chromosomes, you are a man."
Not so fast my transphobic friends. Humans come in far more chromosomal varieties than XX and XY. There;s XO, XXY, XYY, XXYY, XXXY, XY/XO, XX/XO, XX/XY....
Biology is not a nice, neat binary.
androgen insensitivity syndrome that ends up producing women with XY chromosomes like my homegirl Alicia.
She blew some minds in the Texas Lege last year when they were trying to pass SB 6 and came out as intersex So when you faith based fools ignorantly assert that 'women have XX chromosomes', not all women do.
Another FYI for you scientifically illiterate peeps. Medical science is rapidly advancing to the point where humans will be able to edit the DNA code in vitro and create 'designer babies'.
Chinese genetics researcher He Jiankui has claimed he helped create the first gene edited babies. That news is causing controversy in the international scientific community.
That's why I and other scientifically literate peeps in Trans World laugh at you transphobes and call you ignorant when you start spouting those inaccurate talking points.
We also know that science and biology blow up whatever faith based lies you come up with.
