CAUGHT RED-HANDED! Netflix Quietly Edits 1996 Bill Nye Episode About Chromosomes Determining Gender
Remember that old Bill Nye episode about gender? See FLASHBACK: Bill Nye Thought Science Determined if You Were a Boy or Girl. It was rather inconvenient to Bill Nye's current "gender is an ice-cream spectrum!" persona. Which may be why Netflix decided to nix that part entirely. Watch the compare/contrast video below.
When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children's show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one's gender.
In the original episode, titled "Probability," a young woman told viewers, "See, inside each of our cells there are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or girl," the young woman continued. "See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy."
But in the version of the episode uploaded to Netflix, the segment has been cut entirely. It's not clear whether the 1996 segment was cut when it was first uploaded, or whether the edit was in reaction to recent controversies over Bill Nye's stance on gender identity.
Those were the good ole days. Back when gender was determined by old fashioned chromosomes, not hormone injections and wax sessions. Waaaaay before Bill's current Netflix special monstrosity; which boasts a number of scientific achievements. Mostly virtue signaling and hip gyrating...
Whoever edited the old segment - Netflix, Bill Nye, or any of Nye's cronies - they're responsible for shamelessly silencing actual science. While Bill Nye claims the mantle of the prehistoric dude who grants gender wishes via the power of all things science, someone is dusting his trail of any semblance of biology. They've traded in real science for fake science. Reality for political correctness. But fret not, they kept the bow tie. It's an important part of his image. Facts, on the other hand? Not so much.
Incidentally, this meme that went around the Twitters...
...well the aforementioned episode kind of confirms that meme, yeah? Even though news outlets were quick to correct the meme as if it was a word-for-word quote rather than just a meme of Bill's show. Despite there being no actual quotation marks around the pulled phrases.
Again, this is the same dude who wants to jail climate change skeptics and hates the family unit (see Bill Nye, the Anti-Family Guy, Wants to Punish Families With 'Extra Kids'...). All on the basis of "facts." Like the facts he's desperately trying to conceal. So sciencey, that guy...
