$10,000,000 Prize Offer: Prove 'Sex Is A Spectrum' With A Third Human Gamete
And explain its role in reproduction
We unite in our objection to an agenda which erases us from our biological history and lived reality.
We remember that we are male and female, crave the love and attention of male or female, evolved from eons of time to know and want the difference.
We object to the erasure of sex difference from law and society. We dissent against the pseudoscientific, postmodernist pablum and manifold abuses of “gender identity” politics.
We know of exactly two human sex cells (gametes), sperm and egg, which is a binary distribution, not a spectrum.
We are not fooled by diversionary nonsense around “intersex” conditions because differences or Disorders of Sex Development (DSDs) are sex-specific mutations; everyone with Klinefelter’s syndrome is male, everyone with Turner’s is female.
At the very least, to accept that “sex is a spectrum” we require that someone, anyone present us with a third human gamete and explain its role in human reproduction. Nothing less will convince us.

We hereby challenge all the woo peddlers claiming that “sex is a spectrum” to name a third human gamete and explain its role in human reproduction using a body of medical scientific literature.
Anyone who can achieve this feat will receive an award of TEN MILLION DOLLARS CASH from The Distance.
They will likely win a Nobel prize besides.
If the reader is thinking that we do not really have ten million dollars, they are wrong. We do have that money. We have gobs and gobs of dough. Billions. Zillions of dollars.
We identify as bazillionaires, pronouns $$$ and €€€. “Acceptance without exception” or else what are you, a transclass exclusionary bigot?
Unfortunately, that money is all locked away in the same vault where the evidence for a third human sex cell exists, so we can only access those funds in the unlikely event that the terms of our prize offer are fulfilled.
Until that magic moment, dear readers, we have to ask you for donations just to keep the electrons flowing through our servers. They are not the gold-plated kind of servers, either.
Fundraising emails are the worst part of organizing anything. As the editor of this publication, I have resisted pressure from LGB United leadership to bombard our subscribers with relentless appeals for subscribers to upgrade, upgrade, UPGRADE!
My policy has also been to make content free and shareable rather than put it behind a paywall. The stories we cover here, and the work we do, are meant to be seen as widely as possible.
For example, this post is meant for readers to bookmark and use on social media whenever they encounter an adept of the gnostic cult of gender woo insisting that “sex is a spectrum” and that binary human sex was invented by white colonizing Eurocentric racists, etc.
We are trying to be more valuable than a daily doomscroll of the never-ending horror show that is “gender identity.” We have reason to believe we are succeeding.
Because all of our subscribers open our emails at two to three times the normal rate for Substack-generated newsletters, we know they value what we do.
However, only about three percent of our subscribers are paying for a monthly or annual subscription, right now.
Thanks so much to those of you who have supported us. You are keeping the lights on, here.
During February, we reset the conversation around “gender identity” by identifying it as an American esoteric religious movement.
Donovan Cleckley gave testimony to the South Dakota legislature in support of a ban on “gender affirming” sterilization regimes for gay and lesbian children.
Eva Kurilova succinctly explained the difference between gay rights, a liberation movement, and trans rights, which limits the freedom of others.
She also showed us the receipts that male prisoners are not “vulnerable” when they identify as women, but are in fact more dangerous than other men.
Our guest writer P.S. Labastida looked into James Gallmeier, a “transgender” board member of the National Organization for Women, and found a man’s midlife spiral into pornsick madness.
To me, however, last week was our best moment. When the documentary Affirmation Generation: The Lies of Transgender Medicine premiered, we immediately uploaded it to our site because we knew it would get censored.
Our instincts were correct. Like clockwork, Vimeo removed the film, which interviews detransitioners and clinicians, for a crucial 24 hours of virality time, before restoring it without explanation.
In the meantime, more than 6,000 people were able to watch it on our site, anyway. The censors did not win and our dissent is on the record. As long as we are able to stay online, so will Affirmation Generation.
But we aren’t patting ourselves on the back for it. The filmmakers and participants deserve all the praise, and also our paying subscribers, because we could not have done it without them. You.
This is the record of our dissent.
Our subscriber-supporters are the heroes in the story.

As one clever short-vid stated:
Put ten men and a hundred women on a tropical island. A century later you will find a community of men, women, boys and girls.
Put ten men and a hundred trans women on a tropical island. A century later you will find 110 male skeletons.
The word is "continuum."
♪ ♫ Please allow me to introduce myself. ♪ ♫ My name is as given, I am American, I live in Vietnam, I am gay and in a same-sex marriage, I am a computer programmer (servers) and technical writer and a musician/composer. Classical guitar, flutes, synthesizers. Environmentalist, misanthrope.
I was attracted to this site by the little logo at the top left with the Ever-Growing Acronym chopped off before the fucking T. LGB. No TQIA+[this space reserved for future grievances].
Gender is not a continuum. Yes, I am a wordcop, both with respect to vocabulary and grammar. The singular "they" is a hill I am willing to die on; I don't like "reaching out" or "moving forward," I don't like ask and reveal as nouns nor target and impact as verbs. Unique means singular, not distinctive.
I have known real transgender men (that means biological men, not "trans" men), been umm intimate with two of them, botth before the "trans" fad. I can do arithmetic and know that there are five thousand transgender people in the USA, not five million. The real ones have my support, the other 99.9% can find themselves a short pier.
But even so, one in a thousand "trans" is real, the same is not true of "nonbinary, which is a complete crock of shit.
Do you see what I just did? I tied it back to the thread topic.
