Detransitioner crushes famous astrophysicist’s gender argument: ‘Stop confusing basic human biology with cosmetics’

Famous detransitioner Chloe Cole is being praised for debunking TV “scientist” Neil deGrasse Tyson’s latest screed against biological science.

She performed the debunking in a Twitter video she uploaded Tuesday. In the video, she played clips from a TikTok that Tyson had posted in May and then refuted every single one of the “points” he’d made.


Her video began with a clip of Tyson ranting about chromosomes.

“Apparently, the XX/XY chromosomes are insufficient because when we wake up in the morning, we exaggerate whatever feature that we want to portray the gender of our choice,” he said.

Cole rebutted this point by noting that there’s a difference between biology and cosmetics.

“How about we stop confusing basic human biology with cosmetics. Like what a weird jump. I don’t wear makeup most days. If I leave the house without makeup on, does that make me like 75 percent male?” she asked.

The next clip from Tyson showed him talking about the Constitution.

“Somewhere I think I read that the United States was a land where we have the pursuit of happiness,” he said, his point being to ask why anti-trans activists care so much about people pursuing the trans lifestyle.

“If it was only truly about aesthetics, nobody would care. It’s my business because you’re using 1950s gender stereotypes to justify an ideology that leads to the sterilization and mastectomies of 15-year-old girls who just don’t fit in. Girls like me,” Cole replied.

Returning to Tyson, the 64-year-old TV “scientist” then repeated his talking point about how people can just magically choose their gender each morning.

“Suppose no matter my chromosomes, today I feel 80 percent female, 20 percent male. I’m going to put on makeup. I’m going to do that. tomorrow I might feel 80 percent male,” he said.

Cole replied by mocking his own personal lack of masculinity.

“I wonder what his gender was when he recorded this. Like, he doesn’t have a muscle shirt on, right? No sprayed tan. no falsies. He’s probably like 50 percent male,” she said.

The final clip of Tyson showed him asking the public why other people’s gender decisions matter to them.

“I’ll remove the makeup and I’ll wear a muscle shirt. Why do you care? What business is it of yours to require that I fulfill your inability to think of gender on a spectrum?” he said.

Cole then spat out her final rebuttal.

“The only thing that you’ve established in this video is that men wear trousers and tank tops, but women, they wear lipsticks and dresses,” she said.

“The idea that people can be percentages of either male or female just further reinforces the fact that biological sex is a binary. There’s only two. There may be only two sexes, but there are an infinity of personalities. I mean, it really doesn’t take a degree in astrophysics to understand that,” she added.

Her rebuttal has earned her heavy praise:

Cole was also recently praised when she testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

“I used to believe that I was born in the wrong body, and the adults in my life whom I trusted affirmed my belief and this caused me lifelong, irreversible harm. I speak to you today as a victim of one of the biggest medical scandals in the history of the United States of America,” she said.

“I speak to you in the hope that you will have the courage to bring the scandal to an end and ensure that other vulnerable teenagers, children, and young adults don’t go through what I went through,” she added.

She later concluded her testimony by urging Congress to put a stop to children transitioning to another gender.

“I didn’t need to be lied to. I needed compassion. I needed to be loved. I needed to be in therapy to help me work through my issues, not affirm to my delusion that by transforming into a boy, it would solve all my problems. We need to stop telling 12-year-olds that they were born wrong, that they are right to reject their own bodies and feel uncomfortable with their own skin,” she said.

“We need to stop telling children that puberty is an option, that they can choose what kind of puberty they will go through. … Puberty is a rite of passage to adulthood, not a disease to be mitigated. Today, I should be at home with my family celebrating my 19th birthday and instead, I’m making a desperate plea to my elected representatives: learn the lessons from other medical scandals like the opioid crisis to recognize that doctors are human too, and sometimes they are wrong. My childhood was ruined along with thousands of deep transitioners that I know through our networks. This needs to stop,” she added.
