It’s easy to forget what a repellent, sniveling little turd-speck Sal Cordova is until one is reminded by a reference on a blog worth reading (it’s not as if I read Cordova’s ugly little site myself, you know). The occasion this time is that Slimy Sal has just discovered that Joan Roughgarden, the evolutionary biologist who also happens to be a Christian, is a transgendered woman. Oh, the young jackanapes sees many opportunities for hilarity and amusement in this!
She was the daughter of Episcopalian Missionaries and then returned to the Christian faith after many trials in her life. It appears however that amidst her piety she has some peculiarities. It turns out that in 2003, in the prestigious scientific journal Nature, Joan confessed that once upon a time she was a man. Yikes!
Five years ago, at the age of 52, Roughgarden — then known as Jonathan — surprised colleagues by undergoing a sex change.
Will other Darwinists follow suit and have themselves neutered like Roughgarden? How about it PZ or Ed Brayton, or the boys at ATBC? Of course, this will inhibit the passing of their genes, and thus, such Darwinists evidence themselves as being biologically unfit. The irony is that with a high incidence of homosexuality in Darwinian circles, they demonstrate themselves to be biologically unfit.
Ha ha, yes. I’m sure transgendered people find jokes about neutering and being unfit terribly amusing. They must also find the standard confusion of the rubes about homosexuality and transgender positively endearing. “Yikes!”, indeed.
Quick, somebody send his post to the writers for “The Office”. This kind of bumbling, foot-in-the-mouth insensitivity and stupidity is exactly what I’d expect to hear coming out of the boss, Michael Scott. Even better, Slimy Sal keeps jamming that foot ever deeper.
Oddly her penis removal made her/him/it realize that Darwin’s theory was wrong. Perhaps if she read Behe’s books and understood them, she would have been spared having to learn the hard way that Darwin was wrong…
Roughgarden does not think evolution is wrong, but she does have some odd ideas about sexual selection (I disagree with her strongly on them). She is no fan of Intelligent Design creationism, and Behe would not convince her of anything — she is not a stupid woman. But it is rather trivializing of the difficult decision she no doubt had to make in coming to grips with her gender identity, and no, Darwin would have had nothing to do with that choice. Nor would reading Behe have made her suddenly feel like a man.
And then, somehow, he segues into juvenile maunderings about how people prefer a male boss to “lead them into battle”, and how female bosses would have “hidden jealousies”. It’s painful to read.
Seriously, NBC, you’ve got to monitor Sal Cordova. He’s got the pomposity of Michael and the weirdness of Dwight, only less manly, and he’s a goldmine of character ideas.
