The controversy that led to the 60 day Facebook ban of Pulpit & Pen’s social media admin, Andrew Rizko, began over his commentary on a post made by the group called ‘Gender Inclusive Schools.’
The post reads, “Biological sex” is a myth and the term has no place in the classroom. We need to be honest with students and teach them about the expansive and variable genders of people who exist in their communities.”
Rizko left a review on the Gender Inclusive School’s Facebook page that was deemed by the Facebook team as inappropriate. The reasoning provided by Facebook for banning Rizko is their claim that the comment goes against “Community Standards on dangerous individuals and organizations.”
This idea that of sex being a “myth” as the ‘Gender Inclusive Schools’ want you to believe has absolutely no base in scientific fact. The Medilexicon, or lexicon of medical terms, specifically lays out that sex is,“The biologic character or quality that distinguishes male and female from one another as expressed by analysis of the person’s gonadal, morphologic (internal and external), chromosomal, and hormonal characteristics.”
The Medilexicon definition of sex brings out that the only thing that can be problematic with the term “biological sex” is using the word biological. The term ‘sex’ alone implies biology.
Definitions. 1. The biologic character or quality that distinguishes male and female from one another as expressed by analysis of the person’s gonadal, morphologic (internal and external), chromosomal, and hormonal characteristics.
While other more Orwellian dictionaries have modified their definitions to imply sex is the same as gender.
Definition. 1. the fundamental distention, found in most species of animals and plants, based on the type of gametes produced by the individual; also the category to which the individual fits on the basis of that criterion. Called also gender. See also gender identity and gender role
This definition referring to the reproductive cell containing only one set of dissimilar chromosomes, or gametes, states that it is “also called gender.”
