Episode 429: In a recent debate, a progressive Christian made the assertion that Jewish rabbis identified six different genders. In this episode I explore this claim by going to the Mishnah Bikkurim 4 to see what it says and whether or not this uninspired collection of rabbinic tradition actually affirms six genders. Then, I explore the unfortunate reality of chromosomal abnormalities which are not different genders but genetic disorders which numerous health problems. Finally, I take down the simply faulty reading of the Hebrew text by rabbis of Genesis 30.21 which they appeal to support their claim that Dinah was a transwoman.
