Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog’s Tails - Sexual Identity and the Building Blocks of Genetics

      It was a silly rhyme we learned as children; “Little girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, and Little boys are made of snakes and snails and puppy dog’s tails".  Silly at it seemed, it was a way of pointing out that little girls and little boys were different. 

     Now we know that little boys are not really made of snakes and snails …,  nor little girls made of sugar and spice … Yet this silly children’s rhyme, nevertheless taught children that little girls and boys were created differently from different building blocks.  Today’s prevailing idiocracy proposes that it does not matter of what we are made; only what we think we are or what we want to be.  Therefore, those who are made of snakes and snails … can now believe they are really made of sugar and spice … 

     Another children’s tale of Three Little Pigs, is also a learning lesson in building blocks; as three little piggies each build a house for themselves; though each chooses different building materials. One chooses straw, another sticks, while the third and wisest little pig builds his house of bricks, so that the evil bad wolf cannot huff and puff and blow his house down. 

    The Greeks identified four elements of this creation, as earth, air, water and fire. Today, we have identified the four elements of life being carbon ©, oxygen (O), hydrogen (H), and nitrogen (N) of which 96% of the human body is comprised. Thus, in the Star Trek sci-fi flick, a machine identifies and distinguishes humans as being different from itself, by calling them “carbon based units”.  

    Now breaking down these ‘carbon based units’ a bit further, we discover something called chromosomes; of which the human species is constructed of 23 pairs.  The XY chromosome is the sex-determination system found in humans and most other mammals, even in some insects and some plants. In this system, the sex of an individual is determined by a pair of these sex chromosomes, known as (gonosomes). Females have two of the same kind of sex chromosomes, XX), and are called the homogametic sex. While males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY), and are called the heterogametic sex.
     So little boys and little girls, though not made of sugar and spice or snakes and snails, are nevertheless made up of two very different and distinct building blocks. Our chromosomes are the basic yarn of which we are knit – "Before I knit you your mother’s womb I knew you." (Jeremiah 1:5) -  If I knit a scarf for someone out of wool, but the person turns out to be allergic to wool, I would have to knit an entirely different scarf out of an entirely different yarn, as I could not simply divine the wool to be anything other than wool. 

    Downs Syndrome is a developmental disorder caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. A person who carries this extra chromosome copy can never undo this, without crawling back into his mother’s womb and completely restructuring himself; our chromosomes being the fabric of which we are knit. 

    In this world of so much scientific knowledge, telling a child with an XY chromosome that he can believe he is a female is tantamount to believing in Minotaurs and Satyrs. 

    Furthermore, a person who undergoes plastic surgery to change his genitalia from one sex to another will still have the same chromosomes!   It is just as silly as saying we can paint images of bricks on a wooden house, and tell ourselves the house is now brick, ignoring the wooden planks underneath. 

    If the little piggie whose house had been made of straw, imagined his house was really made of bricks, would that have prevented the big bad wolf from being able to huff and puff and blow his houses down?  Not unless the laws of nature were suddenly suspended according to one’s imagination.  

    What has happened to our perception of reality? When a child develops in its mother’s womb, being made up of an XY chromosome, how does that child grow to tell us he is a she? More importantly, how does our society accept this skewed mental state as normal?  Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails cannot be changed into sugar and spice.  XY = boy, XX = girl. Genetics is genetics.
