    I do like Pismestrovic. An excellent caricaturist. And BTW:

    Russia to file claim with the UN to Arctic shelf.

    Well, at least I don’t resort to cheap insults and potty language when I am discussing aspects of my discipline…
    You don’t need to know who I am or what I am. It really makes no difference to my argument, which stands on its own.

    Gender characteristics (the expression of a large array of genes) comprise spectra of characteristics. These spectra will overlap in populations comprising both XX and XY individuals. These characteristics involve a large number of neural/behavioral properties that are not simply a matter of plumbing anatomy or even of germ cell production and extend to brain structures. My point is that there is no clear boundary between male and female in our species, and I think that this fact may be a function of the eusociality of the species. As a species, we use sexuality for much more than simple reproduction.

    Again. It’s all in the definitions. You are saying man=male, woman=female without asking yourself what defines male and female (or perhaps you are going strictly on the XX/XY chromosome definition). We have been trying to point out to you that your definition of male and female is too restrictive for the biological meaning of those terms. This discussion is reminding me of another I had with another poster in which he failed to distinguish between the meaning of pH as a measure of the acidity of a solution and the process of acidifying a solution. If we haven’t common definitions, we have no good basis for discussion.

    Sigh. No, you are using circular definitions and saying that they show something real. You were also using either/or statements without any comprehension of the diversity of expressions that can exist. What seems to you to be a logical statement is not logical by what is factually known about biology. To use an analogy, you are working in digital (yes/no, either/or), but living organisms work in analog.

    As far as I can determine, the whole point of this stupid contest was to insult Islam. It really had nothing whatsoever to do with freedom of speech. See Rad-ish’s post above for more details on Pamela Geller. Not a nice person at all.

    You have no hard data to support your claim to an answer here. It is only your gut feeling to fit your particular narrative and in no way based on fact.
    If you haven’t figured out that the rest of us are trying to base our approach to answers on hard data, then you won’t really be able to contribute in a meaningful way to our discussion.

    Bravo, lonecat!!!
    Nailed it without any qualification necessary.
    You are a credit to the intellectual community.

    What a magnificent post, Tarred!
    You have it exactly, nail on the head.

    He took his posts here off—as you predicted (Greggy, that is).
