Do animals have genders? Are there any transgender animals?
The Dutch primatologist Frans de Waal has published a new fascinating book on the role of sex, gender, sexuality and gendered behavior among chimpanzees and bonobos. Gender variance is natural.
Anti-trans activists sure use the term “science” a lot. That being so, you should think they would actually read the science.
Take Frans de Waal, for instance. They never refer to Frans de Waal.
In his new book he looks at the roles of biological sex, sexuality and gender in apes, and concludes that there are as much variance found among them as among humans.
