Biology teacher destroys transphobic bigots with hard science


Until the last couple of years transgender issues and rights were not even on the proverbial back burner. They were at best a very distant thought light years away for most. Suddenly gay marriage was the law of the land, and the push for rights for the final segments of the LGBT community became front and center.

Many school districts here in New Jersey were no exception, with policies being drafted and debated everywhere. We’ve heard all the arguments about keeping transgender kids to the bathrooms of the gender they were ‘born with.’

“Boys will pretend to be trans girls just to peep on girls.” Yeah, because trans kids are never ever picked on and vilified in public schools so a boy would have no awkwardness about pretending such a thing. “I don’t want my daughter seeing male body parts in the school bathroom!” What girls room has urinals? They’re all inside stalls. “Males can go in female bathrooms to rape females!” If the much more serious criminal charge of rape vs. the lesser charge of trespass doesn’t stop them, then they can already be going right in to the female bathrooms to rape all they want.

The latest in all this is a meme that’s been circulating which states the following 4 points, the author clearly believing they’ve hit cerebral gold.

  1. In a sexual species, there are two sexes, MALE and FEMALE.
  2. 99.93% of humans have XX or XY sex chromosomes (rest is mutation).
  3. Being one sex but thinking you’re the other is a psychological disorder.
  4. Mandating a widespread enabling of a psychological disorder is sociopathy.


Then along came a biology teacher who shreds the core beliefs or every transphobic troll out there. On Facebook, Grace Pokela, who teaches biology at Arlington High School in Lagrangeville, New York, wrote this:

It’s good to see people of science speaking up on these issues.
