Radical evolutionary sociologist insists Nicholas Matte is a sociocultural construct.
Nicholas Matte, professor at the University of Toronto, created headlines during a discussion on Genders, Rights and Freedom of Speech with Steven Paikin, Jordan Peterson and others. The soft-spoken and somewhat smug professor casually mentioned that “Basically, it’s not correct that there is such a thing as biological sex”, and refused to elaborate further “in the interests of time”.
Later into the discussion, Matte went ahead and accused Peterson of “abusing students” by not using their preferred pronouns if compelled by law.
Evolutionary sociologist Rahim McWhorter, who believes that biological sex is binary, has responded with a statement to The New York Lines. “There’s no such thing as Nicholas Matte. Nicholas Matte is a sociocultural construct. It is unfair to assume a person exists because you can see them with your eyes. We are culturally groomed to identify objects and people, and put them in boxes. This creates division and intolerance. Therefore, the statement that biological sex doesn’t exist is negated by the fact that the person who uttered it also doesn’t exist. I repeat. Nicholas Matte is a sociocultural construct, and therefore, neither a biological entity nor real.”
