WATCH: ‘Teen Vogue’ Advises Teenagers About Biological Sex: ‘Binary Is Bulls***’

In an attempt to confuse teenagers about the naturally-occurring biological differences between men and women, Teen Vogue has released a video titled, “5 Common Misconceptions About Sex and Gender.” The video features various speakers insisting that gender is a fluid construct and “binary is bulls***.” Additional comments also mock the concept that if a boy has a penis, he’s a boy, and if a girl has a vagina, she’s a girl.

The video begins with Belgian model Hanne Gaby preaching, “I’m Hanne Gaby and I’m here to tell you that binary is bulls***.” Author Katrina Karkazis chimes in, “Sex typically refers to your biological traits.” Teen Vogue producer Maria Gridas grins, “Like your gonads, your genitalia, your internal sex characteristics, your hormone production, hormone response, and secondary sex characteristics.”

Karkazis continues: “Gender is about your identity, your expression, and it’s often based on ideas about sex.”

More flapdoodle follows, with a series of comments reprinted below:

“Is there something called biological sex and what does that mean?”

“This idea that the body is either male or female is totally wrong.”

“We all have characteristics that are typically male and typically female and it is really about political choices, social factors, ideological choices, that we assign meaning to different parts of our body. So the meaning may be that they meant, most of us are taught that if you have a vagina, you’re a girl; or if you have a penis, you’re a boy.”

“But like, many simple binaries break down when you start to really get into the nitty gritty.”

“Over history, the location or the idea of what determined one’s true sex shifted. A Hundred years ago it used to be whether you had ovaries or testes. Then it shifted to what kinds of chromosomes that you had. But the body doesn’t have just one place where we can sit there with a microscope or something else and say, ‘Hey, wait a second. This is really who you are; this is your true sex.’ In fact, who you are is who you say you are.”

“Saying that a person with XY chromosomes is only male is a narrow way to look at the diverse range of chromosome differences that we can have as a person.”

“Too many people still believe that there’s such a thing as a true sex and that it comes from your chromosomes. It’s not the case. Science has known this for decades and it’s actually a consensus in science and uncontroversial.”

On the statement that trans women are biological men: “Definitely a cringeworthy misconception. It’s like so steeped in what we’ve been taught culturally and as a society.”

More: “A trans woman is a woman; she is not tricking anyone; all of her body parts are female body parts.”

Teen Vogue is the same site that published an op-ed last August subtitled, “Yes, abortion can be funny,” in which the author, a member of the Lady Parts Justice League, insisted, “Lady Parts Justice League offers a new sort of abortion politics: one which incorporates the frequently obfuscated space of joy, pleasure, and relief in discussions about abortion. One that pushes its members to be intentional about their activism and ideology, to find ways they can use their individual skills to support local abortion clinics and allies, and have fun while doing it.”
