Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the need to tell the truth about biology
BILL DONOHUE | CNBNEWS CONTRIBUTOR
There are only two sexes: male or female.
I said this to the graduating class at Ave Maria Law School on May 14, and my comments were well received. The next day, Wyoming Sen. Cynthia Lummis spoke to the graduates at the University of Wyoming and she said the same thing. She was booed and later apologized for "disrespecting" people.
Sen. Lummis should never have apologized. She told the truth.
We will never beat those who deny the existence of nature, and nature's
God—which is what this madness is all about—if we yield to ideological maniacs who refuse to acknowledge the existence of truth.

Those who prefer to live in a state of denial may need to have some pain killers on hand.
Sexual differentiation begins during gestation, when the gonads are formed. The general structure and shape of the body and face, as well as sex hormone levels, are similar in preadolescent boys and girls. As puberty begins and sex hormone levels rise, differences appear, though some changes are similar in males and females. Male levels of testosterone directly induce the growth of the genitals, and indirectly (via dihydrotestosterone (DHT)) the prostate. Estradiol and other hormones cause breasts to develop in females. However, fetal or neonatal androgens may modulate later breast development by reducing the capacity of breast tissue to respond to later estrogen.
Underarm hair and pubic hair are usually considered secondary sex characteristics, but they may also be considered non-secondary sex characteristics because they are features of both sexes following puberty. ~
