I’m curious what you mean here by rejecting of the science of gender. Do you rejection of binary gender and of bioessentialism in gender? If so, it seems to me that the science tends to support non-binary gender and also that gender is definitely influenced by things aside from biology (in other words, there’s no uncomplicated path from allosomes to hormones to genitals to gender). See the work of Cordelia Fine, especially her _Delusions of Gender_, and Anne Fausto-Sterling on this. Both of them rely on science to challenge binary gender and the simple model of sex/gender that many adhere to.
