Hey, it’s SCIENCE!

Hoist by his own petard.

Disney and Netflix officials said Friday they’re not sure why references to chromosomes and gender were removed from a 21-year-old episode of “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” which is available now for online streaming.

The 1996 episode, “Probability,” originally featured a cast member saying, “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”

“See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl,” she added. “See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy.”

That segment has since been removed, and it is not available in the version that is now streaming on Netflix, the Washington Free Beacon was first to report.

Nye’s new program, “Bill Nye Saves the World,” which is exclusive to Netflix, departs from his old television show’s position on gender.

“Gender is like sex, it’s on the spectrum,” Nye said in one of his newer episodes.

News that Nye’s old television program has been edited for Netflix comes on the heels of the premiere of his new online show, which takes a very progressive approach to a number of issues, including climate change, world population and gender.

Well, nothing says “science” more than hiding the facts to fit whatever political narrative is currently popular and maintain the approval of your fellow Progressivists, right?

Hey, balance the ball on your nose now, Science Guy, and clap your flippers together; maybe the libtards will throw you another fish. MJ has a couple of pertinently impertinent questions:

Shower thought: Doesn’t discussion of the wage gap assume someone’s gender?

Shower thought II: Does the B in LGBT assume there are only two genders?

Gee, I dunno. Maybe we could get a real scientist, instead of a PC douchebag like Bill Nye, to address those sometime.

  1. If Nye’s fellow travelers took a logic test, their every response would look something like this:

    Any scientific fact is to “progressives” as a ______ is to Dracula.
    A. Wooden stake You cisgenedered homophobe!
    B. Crucifix I resent you’re [sic] Christofascism!!
    C. Sunbeam Your [sic] a racist Nazi & LITERALLY HITLER!!1!

    Gosh, we just don’t know how those references got removed. It must have edited itself while we weren’t looking. You know, the way that Evil Scary Black Assault Rifles jump up and suddenly go on shooting sprees all by themselves.

    Rope, lamppost, Progressive. Some assembly required.

  3. Disappearances and, worse, quiet alterations are why I keep local copies of a lot of stuff from days and years gone by.

    Huh. You know, that never once occurred to me. I’m sure I’ll be able to trot that out to good purpose at some point.
