### No, actually I am quite well-versed in the science of gender, and
psychometry, and psychiatry, and that's precisely the reason why I call BS
on leftoids peddling their inane ideas.

### Absolutely to the contrary, there is a very strong biological basis to
the differences between men and women in STEM fields.

### Look up the statistics on the prevalence of psychiatric comorbidity
among trannnies. And don't tell me their sky-high rates of psychological
disturbance are due to us normal folks oppressing them, or something like
that. Yes, there are now malingerers pretending to be trannies in order to
run roughshod over women's sports or to get social kudos for being more
intersectional than the other, vanilla leftoids.

Let me be clear - It is not morally wrong to be a tranny. However, it does
suck, statistically speaking, to be a tranny.
