Bill Nye: There's no such thing as race and gender isn't real


Celebrity scientist Bill Nye has drawn heavy criticism after claiming race is a "human construct" and gender isn't real, but rather on a spectrum.

Celebrity scientist Bill Nye grew to stardom with his bow-tie wearing episodes featured in everyone's elementary and high school science. However, the once lovable scientist is coming under criticism after making some dubious comments on race and gender.

In a new video called "Sexuality and the Gender Spectrum", Nye explains how gender simply isn't real, but rather a fluid, non-binary thing that "isn't so clear cut". 

"A person's gender identity may change over their lifetime," Nye says in the video. "And culture is getting us new ways to express all this. How you dress, how you act and talk, how you present yourself to the world, it should be up to you. Sure, this might make things confusing for those insist everyone pick an M or an F, but people, we have to listen to science."

That "science", however, was seemingly left out of Nye's video. Rather, the episode seemed to only promote a single opinion on gender, rather than any scientific data, tests, discoveries, or information. In fact, not one single piece of data or information is presented in the entire video. Instead, the viewer is filled with a bunch of pretty colors that keep popping in and out to show what Nye calls the "gender spectrum". Apparently, that's the type of science he's referring to.

Nye continues on his rant against gender identity and sexuality, saying, "And the science says we're all on a spectrum. Our labels, our fashion, even our washrooms our catching up to that truth."

"What makes someone male or female isn't so clear cut," Nye says. "How about attraction? Some people argue that the natural thing is to only be attracted to the opposite sex. But in practice, it ain't so simple, kids.

It wasn't the only time Bill Nye went back on his words recently. Apparently, Nye's ditched the whole "scientific approach" theory, as well.
Some people are gay, some are bi, some are asexual, and some will take whatever they can get. If you know what I mean." He ends with a slightly odd joke, letting out a small chuckle as the crowd rolls with laughter.

"It's another sexy, sliding scale," he continues. "when you throw in gender it gets even more colorful."

Bill Nye was once a strong supporter and promoter of the "scientific method", which allowed scientists to make proper advancements through a serious of tests, charts, and more. In this video, Nye explains exactly what he didn't do in his assertion about gender, sexuality, and race:

Then this guy asked the question we're all wondering now:

Sexuality and the gender spectrum wasn't all Bill Nye had to say about lately. The so-called scientist also now claims there's no such thing as different races, rather only one. On the Big Think, Nye discussed how he learned humans have no real race because of his studies on dogs.

"We obsess about whether our dog is a pug-Jack Russell terrier mix with corgi overtones and an oaky finish. 'An approachable little dog,' whatever. They’re all dogs, okay? And so the idea of a purebred is just a human construct. There’s no such thing – in a sense there’s no such thing as a purebred dog."

Since there's no such thing as a purebred dog, according to Nye, that means it applies to human beings, as well. For Nye, that's enough to be convinced the human race is only one race.

"If a Papua New Guinean hooks up with a Swedish person all you get is a human. There’s no new thing you’re going to get. You just get a human. Japanese woman jumping the African guy, all you get is a human. They’re all humans. So this is a lesson to be learned. There really is, for humankind there’s really no such thing as race. There’s different tribes but not different races. We’re all one species."

In Bill Nye's new world of science, gender isn't real, and race is a human construct. Without any data, scientific studies, or even a faint touch of factual evidence. Apparently, science is now about opinion and what it feels like, rather than reality.

Nye received heavy criticism for his comments on race and gender, and people didn't stop short on calling out his outlandish claims with no evidence.
