Recently, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins appeared in Piers Morgan’s show “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” where he shared his finding on gender and sex. According to Dawkins, after spending decades of research on the topic, he has determined empirically that there are only two biological sexes. The British scientist also defended author J.K. Rowling, who is known to criticize the transgender movement, saying the attacks against her were from “bullies.” See a clip from the show below.
Richard Dawkins says JK Rowling and Kathleen Stock have been "bullied" while standing up for themselves over trans issues.

Piers Morgan kicks off the conversation by stating, “What’s troubling to me is they want to what they call de-gender and neutralize language, but they’re doing it from a completely false pretext that you can somehow pretend biology doesn’t exist, particularly when it comes to someone’s sex. I mean, it’s incontrovertible. There’s no scientific doubt about this. And yet a small group of people have been quite successful actually in reshaping vast swathes of the way society talks and is allowed to talk.”
Dawkins responded, “It’s bullying, and we’ve seen the way JK Rowling has been bullied, Caitlyn Stock has been bullied. They have stood up to it, but that it’s very upsetting the way this tiny minority of people has managed to capture the discourse and to really talk errant nonsense. What’s the answer to it? Silence mean? There are two sexes. You can talk about gender if you wish, and that’s subjective.”
Piers addresses the woke belief that there can be an innumerable variety of genders, “When people say there are 100 genders, for example.” The scientist quickly rebukes this idea replying, “Yeah, I’m
not interested in that. As a biologist, there are two sexes. And that’s all there is to it.” Dawkins makes it very clear he believes there is no scientific basis for any of the radical left’s claims toward gender and sex.
Unsurprisingly, the woke cancel culture mob came after Dawkins for challenging their beliefs. Morgan points out, “You had a humanist award stripped in 2021. Because of your comments about this kind of thing. You had a tweet in April that year in 2015. You tweeted Rachel dollars or a white chapter president in America, the NAACP, was vilified for identifying as black she was white. Some men choose to identify as women some women choose to identify as men. You’ll be vilified if you deny that they are literally are what they identify as discuss and all hell broke loose and you had your award strips because you were effectively doing what JK Rowling and others have said, you were just espousing a biological fact.”
Dawkins addresses how we seemingly have lost the ability to have a civil discussion with people who espouse differing viewpoints in our polarized society. He says, “There are people for whom the word discuss doesn’t mean discuss, it means you’ve taken a position, which I hadn’t. But anyway, I thought it was a reasonable thing to discuss.” Dawkins concludes the clip by reaffirming that sex is binary, “Sex really is binary. And therefore, it’s, it’s something is certainly worth discussing that odd anomaly.”
