Quantum Woo and the Science of Transgender
The link above points to an article I wrote for the Skeptoid Blog, the place where I examine science topics not related to transgender … usually. Then I got an e-mail from a man claiming that I could get a sex change just by willing it to happen, because quantum.
The Skeptoid article contains the basic take-down of this most ridiculous premise. However, I want to use this space to say that I always like to keep an open mind. So, I have a request for the transgender community:
If you have ever willed yourself to spontaneously change genders using quantum gravity, please send me an Ask with the relevant documentation of said transformation. Please be thorough in your supporting documentation; remember always that extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.
Thanks in advance to any individual who shares this knowledge. I assure you, sir or madam (as the case may be), you will be lauded as a true hero of the transgender community for revealing the secret to the rest of us.
I await my quantum vagina with bated breath.
