One thought on “Few people knew female birds had unique songs—until women started studying them | Popular Science”

  1. The dangers of information overload and speed reading. When I first saw this, I quickly read it online and thought, yeah, we knew that (as a biologist myself, who started off with bird studies in the bush, we relied upon bird calls to hone in on what was where). But, as I often do, I printed off a copy of the article (oh shut up about saving trees; I am trying to save more than trees) and carefully read it to the end, whereupon I literally wrote “What a crock!” The conclusion headline ‘Diverse perspectives help drive scientific progress’ leads one to automatically think of diversity as in women researchers as well as men researchers type of diversity (especially as the headline of the paper refers to female birds and women studying them) EXCEPT their concluding remarks refer to researchers ‘with different backgrounds and [the giveaway] ‘identities’ and “In the future, allowing authors to self-identify for studies of gender … would likely produce more correct gender data and allow researchers to identify as non-binary or non-gender conforming.” Blah, blah, blah. FFS! The TRA GII Cult has even CAPTURED bird song. A mantrans masquerading as a maiden is not going to give any sort of unbiased opinion on anything to do with sex base studies; people who are prepared to lie to themselves about themselves have a clear conflict of interest from the get go, which must surely preclude them from any scientific studies – let alone sex-based studies (not least because because they will not allow critical thinking – an essential component of evidence based scientific research).
