Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:
Critics, meanwhile, claim the experiment places an unhealthy emphasis on it, at an age when children are too young to ask questions. Conservative Party councillor Mary Douglas, has labelled it “abusive” and “inappropriate,” and says: “Children in particular are very vulnerable and susceptible to what adults say. To even suggest that he or she might not be essentially male or female is potentially very harmful.”
To which Dr Javid – an A&E doctor when not presenting – responds strongly: “One, this is absolutely not about gender identity. [J4MB: Yes, it clearly is. A pathetic ‘argument by assertion’.] Two, in no way could you imagine anyone ever trying to steer children in a way that’s harmful. [J4MB: Anyone with a healthy imagination could certainly imagine that.] We’re talking about the BBC. [J4MB: Oh well, this can’t be a feminist propaganda piece, then.] I’m a Doctor. [J4MB: Ah yes. The profession that mutilates the genitals of male minors for personal financial gain. Pillars of society, one and all.] Their parents and teachers were involved. [J4MB: They had no choice.] Three, watch the programme and then if you still want to hold that view – well, then you’re daft. [J4MB: A classic SJW shaming tactic.]”
The documentary is predicated on Dr Javid’s belief [J4MB: A demonstrably mistaken belief] that boys’ and girls’ brains are almost identical. He is backed by Professor Gina Rippon, a neuroscientist at Aston University in Birmingham, who insists nurture, not nature, makes girls love dolls and boys like Lego. [J4MB: She’s a liar.]
“You start to say that if the biology is that similar, [J4MB: The biology is NOT ‘that similar’.] where do these differences come from? And there were differences,” says Dr Javid.
