The popular science magazine, Scientific American , is facing criticism for it’s new documentary series, “A Question of Sex,” in which the publication claims that the concept of binary sex didn’t exist in Western culture until scientists adopted the “two-sex” model to “reinforce gender and racial divisions,” in the late 18th century.
“While gendered social structures are ancient, a binary framework of biological sex didn’t actually exist in Western culture until the late 18th century,” a clip from the documentary posted to Scientific American’s Twitter said. “Before, science recognized only one sex; the male, and considered the female body an inferior version of it.” “The shift that historians called the ‘two-sex model’ served mainly to reinforce gender and racial divisions by tying social status to the body,” the video continued.

Laqueur, who in his 1990 book Making Sex , suggested that from the Renaissance to the 18th century, there was a prevailing inclination among doctors towards the existence of only one biological sex. However, not everyone agrees with his theory.
Scholars such as Joan Cadden and Michael Stolberg have criticized Laqueur’s opinion, with Stolberg writing A Woman Down to Her Bones: The Anatomy of Sexual Difference in the Sixteenth and Early Seventeenth Centuries .

Cadden has written that “one-sex” theories were already treated with skepticism as early as ancient and medieval periods and that Laqueuer […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
