Darwinists learn the hard way:
A young evolutionary biologist (PhD, UC Santa Barbara) who did postgraduate research at Penn State, Colin Wright specializes in behavioral ecology of social insects. Like most biologists, he is trained to identify and recognize biological sex in animals as a real thing. He knows that there are some unusual cases of sex in biology, such as hermaphrodites that can self-fertilize, male seahorses that perform the role of carrying the young, and members of one sex that act in ways characteristic of the opposite sex. There are also cases in humans of ambiguous genitalia and people suffering from gender dysphoria who deserve respect and understanding. These, however, do not imply that sex is a continuum of choices where anyone can self-identify as any spot on that spectrum. Sex is a biological reality, he argues.
Boy, was he in for a surprise. When he posted on Instagram a peer-reviewed paper that highlighted the advantages that men have in sports, his post was called “hate speech” and was promptly removed.David F. Coppedge, “Evolutionary Biologists Aghast at Cultural Wokeism” at Creation–Evolution Headlines (December 9, 2021)
Darwin might have said as much in The Descent of Man, to the acclaim of evolutionary biologists. But Colin Wright may never get tenure. He may never work in biology again unless he agrees that sex is a meaningless concept.
Those other evolutionary biologists had better get with the program and denounce him, right? Or just shut up and stay shut up.

We’d be happy to help but we can only help people who think that intellectual freedom is not negotiable. It must be okay to criticize Darwin too.
