Mother: Is is a boy or a girl?
Doctor: [who just delivered baby] Now I think it’s a little early to start imposing roles on it don’t you?
Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life 1983
Just when you think you’ve succeeded in intimidating the world into concluding that Boys and girls are all social constructs science and reality chime in to muck it up again:
Tests on mothers’ milk in both monkeys and humans have showed that levels of fat, protein, vitamins, sugars, minerals and hormones vary enormously, but there is evidence that milk made for female and male babies is consistently different.
The make-up of the milk has a direct impact on the child’s growth, but also on his or her behaviour and temperament, which may last for the rest of their life. Scientists suspect that breast milk may be tailored by nature to meet the different growth needs of the sexes.
Via Steven Hayward at Powerline who opines:
Apparently “nature”* didn’t get the memo from the office of diversity and inclusion that gender is a social construct.
* I’m guessing that the old term “mother nature” is punishable by flogging these days.
I’d be interested in knowing how the mix is of twins of different sexes but for now I’ll content myself in the knowledge that there will be day in the future when people will point and laugh at these SJW idiots rather than submitting to the fools who think Monty Python is a how to guide for life rather than comedy who would insist that a womb and breasts are not the signs of being female.
