Neil deGrasse Tyson Loses It During Trans Sports Debate: "I would still be drinking from a segregated water fountain"
You would think that a Physics major would be required to take at least one biology course.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who knows very little about human anatomy, recently debated transgender ideology as he went after women-only spaces at the same time.
Tyson subsequently freaked out when his views were refuted and came off as an insufferable, uninformed jerk.
During the debate, he rants about how people ‘feel’ and "who are you to question that!" Tyson also tried to equate the trans movement with the feminist movement and Jim Crow policies for separate water fountains.
In a recent episode of the YouTube show "TRIGGERnometry," hosted by British comedian Konstantin Kisin, Tyson was challenged on previous statements he made that claimed genetics are insufficient to determine a person's gender.
"There are women whose opportunities are being curtailed today because they are being forced to compete, whether in sports or elsewhere, against people who have some kind of advantage over them," Kisin argued.
Tyson responded, "We're in a transitional period. So we have to figure that out. But the way to figure out things that require solutions to progressive change is not to regress it to how things once were. If that were the case, I would still be drinking from a segregated water fountain.”
Kisin's co-host said, "I think a lot of people would have an issue with what you're saying now because they see women being denied opportunities, they see an unfair playing field, metaphorically and literally speaking."

During some points, Tyson spoke in a loud tone, appearing to state that the entire sports infrastructure should be reconsidered to ensure inclusion and fairness for everyone except women.
Tyson said the biological differences between the sexes in sports are a "solvable problem.” And that excluding males from women's teams was an "older view of the world."
Tyson responded, “So fix the playing field, damn it!" he shot back. "Well, don't say it's an unfair playing field so all of a sudden, the big issue is trans women taking the slot of a woman in an unfair playing field. Fix the playing field! And you know something? The day you fix that playing field, this conversation will look completely ridiculous. That's what I'm trying to tell you."
Tyson keeps complaining that the problem is an unfair playing field, and we should fix it. But the problem with that argument, is that it was fair to begin with and then all of sudden, progressives went and changed everything!
His weak attempts to link this to women’s rights and Jim Crow is absurd because those problems were actually unfair and needed to be fixed. This has always been fair. But then progressives started changing everything.
Tyson said hormonal levels might be a potential method to decide who gets included in sports.
"Well, hold on a second. The difference is physiologically between men and women is not just hormonal. Women have a different hip angle. They have different heart capacities. They have different lung capacity. I mean, there are profound physiological differences, different bone density," Kisin countered.
Tyson responded by saying that some sports separate based on weight, and that is what we should do as a society.
"Then you find ways to slice the population so that whatever the event is interestingly contested," he said. "So, for example, I wrestled in my life. I was captain of my high school wrestling team. It would be unfair for me at 190 pounds, which is what I was back then, to wrestle someone 120 pounds."
Through his frustrations and arrogance he presents, Tyson has made it clear that he has a lack of understanding in regards to the issue at hand.
His clear lack of interest in the fact that there are two sexes that differ biologically is laughable, and his passive lack of interest to why women are demanding their own spaces, is abhorrent at best.
Tyson’s performance is overall sad. You can tell he knows he is wrong, but is trying his hardest to win somehow.
Tyson should really start sticking to his strengths, and it is clear this is not one of them.
