The ongoing sex and gender debate does not come to a standstill. Now the Nobel Prize winner Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard has also intervened. When it comes to biological sex, there is “only female or male,” said the biologist, who received the highest scientific award in 1995 for her contribution to embryonic development. And added: “There is a range in terms of social gender (“gender” – editor’s note).
In an interview with the magazine “Emma” she sharply criticized Sven Lehmann, the queer commissioner of the German federal government. He had previously denied the fact of biological dual sex. “Mr. Lehmann may have missed the basic course in biology,” said Nüsslein-Volhard.
Even the legislature cannot “enable gender reassignment”, emphasized the Nobel Prize winner. He was only able to claim that “this woman can now claim that she is a man. And vice versa”. And emphasized: “The biological basis cannot be changed at all.”
