Misleading Polls
#1
Polls are such a thing these days that they can make or break any idea if used often enough.  But results of Any Poll is only as good as the manner in which the questions are framed and set forth.  

This is a Great Example of a miswritten poll causing confusion and attention that it does not deserve.

Quote:Republicans, Democrats have starkly different views on transgender issues

The American public is fundamentally divided over whether it’s possible for someone to be a gender different from the sex they were assigned at birth, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The survey comes amid debates over which public bathrooms transgender individuals should use, how they should be recognized on official documents and whether they should serve in the U.S. military.

Overall, roughly half of Americans (54%) say that whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth, while 44% say someone can be a man or a woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why or how Pew could be so ignorant as to use the "Sex At Birth" part, unless they were not really interested in the facts of the poll.  Whether anyone likes it or not, a human's "sex" is always determined at "Conception", not birth.  Conception!!.  

The process is straight forward.  The male genes(sperm) enter the female genes(egg) and the fusion takes place.  ALL genes have receptors in which other sets of genes send out keys that are supposed to lock onto those receptors and determine what the finished product will become.  

This is a relatively new field, called "Epigenetics" that is closely studying the effects of this interaction of the gene receptors and how it affects an organism's final product.  And almost certainly is it what causes someone to be a male/female, yet have other traits that have slightly different results.  This is almost certainly why some humans, mostly males, are bisexual, or homosexual.  Receptors somehow get the wrong plug-ins, and the results are not perfect.

But birth has nothing to do with sex determination other than what a doctor puts down on a birth certificate.  All that has been determined at the very moment of Conception.

No wonder pundits and writer get things so screwed up.  Rush gave this away to me when he ridiculed Jackasses for their supposed stupidity, and the other side's common sense.  He should have known better, that this entire poll was a total waste of effort, and accomplished absolutely nothing.  

And the Key mistake was trying to use "Birth" instead of "Conception".   Banghead
