A biologist and Nobel Prize winner made headlines this week when she asserted basic biological reality in opposition to the claims of radical transgender ideologues.

In an exclusive interview in German language feminist magazine EMMA, German developmental biologist and Nobel laureate Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard explained that the basic biological principles regarding sexuality disprove transgenderism.

“[A]ll mammals have two sexes, and man is a mammal,” said Nüsslein-Volhard, who won the 1995 Nobel prize in Physiology and Medicine for her research in early embryonic development.

“There’s the one sex that produces the eggs, has two X chromosomes. That’s called female,” she said. “And there’s the other one that makes the sperm, has an X and a Y chromosome. That’s called male.”

Asked whether people can change their gender, the Nobel laureate was unequivocal.

“That’s nonsense! It’s wishful thinking,” she said. “There are people who want to change their gender, but they can’t do it … People retain their gender for life.”

Nüsslein-Volhard also warned of the dangers of prescribing hormones to help people look more like the opposite sex.

“The body cannot handle it well in the long run,” she said. “Every hormone you take has side effects. Taking hormones is inherently dangerous.”

Responding to recent claims by Sven Lehmann, the German federal government’s “queer commissioner” who reportedly argued it’s “unscientific” to affirm there are only two genders, Nüsslein-Volhard argued that it’s the transgender view espoused by Lehmann that’s “unscientific.”

The German government had appointed Lehmann as its first “commissioner for queer affairs” in June. Last year, the government began pushing for legislation to allow children as young as 14 to change their legal gender without parental consent.

Nüsslein-Volhard told EMMA that allowing children to “change their gender” is “madness,” noting that she, like “many girls,” had been ”unhappy in puberty.” According to the professor, young girls should be supported in their actual identities rather than encouraged to become like men.

While observing that gender-confused people “should not be discriminated against,” and that it’s “bad” when “people are treated badly,” Nüsslein-Volhard nonetheless argued that people who believe they can change their gender “cannot impose their ideas on everyone as facts.”
