GLENN: So Bill Nye the science guy, who is not a scientist. This is a Disney creation, is now doing something on Netflix where he is talking about the science of you can -- you choose your own gender. Unfortunately, for Bill Nye the science guy, when he was actually talking about science, it went a little something like this: This is from his original science show Bill Nye the science guy.
VOICE: I'm a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always one in two. See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl. Your mom has two X chromosomes in all of her cells, and your dad has one X and one Y chromosome in each of his cells. Before you're born, your mom gives you one of her chromosomes and your dad gives you one of his. Mom always gives you an X and a dad gives you an X too, then you become a girl. But if he gives you his Y, then you become a boy. See, there are only two possibilities.
PAT: Wait, what?
VOICE: X, X, a girl. Or X, Y, a boy.
PAT: How hateful.
VOICE: The chance of either becoming a boy or girl is one in two.
PAT: I thought there were 72 different --
GLENN: No, there's more than that now.
JEFFY: Was that a show from the caveman days or something?
PAT: Bill Nye the science guy, 1996. There are two choices. You're a girl, or you're a boy.
GLENN: One in two. You're either this or that. And it all comes down to the science of your genes. The chromosome.
PAT: You're not pangender, you're not xi gender, you're not cisgender, you're either a boy or a girl.
GLENN: Go ahead. What other genders?
PAT: I don't --
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Hate mongerer.
PAT: I don't want to leave anybody out, so I'm going to stop right there. Is there 700 now?
GLENN: I think there's over 90 now.
JEFFY: Suffering from sexism.
GLENN: So very interesting here is how we made it through the Dark Ages, back in 1994.
GLENN: '96. Jeez. 21 years ago, we were sitting here thinking that there were only two possibilities.
PAT: You were either going to be a boy or a girl.
GLENN: But now science has changed and, Stu, you're more scientific minded on the show. Explain the science that has changed. We've learned that the chromosome X and Y.
PAT: There's either XX, XY, L.
STU: The problem was basically they thought there was only X and Y. And now we of course know there are 26 letters in the alphabet. So we know there are 676 total genders that you can have.
PAT: So you can about a B and a D.
STU: Or Jeffy. A BM.
JEFFY: Why would I.
GLENN: That's a big male.
STU: Yeah, very big.
GLENN: He got the big from his mom and male from his dad. Or it could have been the other way around.
STU: I think that's what it is. They forgot about the other letters. It must be because that would be a great follow-up to Bill Nye. Hey, we saw this interview in 1996. Can you point to this study for the new chromosomes that you're doing now? Is there one?
GLENN: Show us. Take us on that journey, without talking about feelings, because we know that's very scientific. Show us the studies.
