Natural History Museums accused of sexism for having too many male animals

Researchers at the Natural History Museum in London claim that the world’s top natural history museums — in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., London, and Paris — are sexist because their animal exhibits contain more male birds and mammals than females.

“We found a slight bias towards males in birds (40% females) and mammals (48% females),” according to a research report. In other words, the ratio was almost 50-50.

However, the report was written by a predominantly-male team, as BizPac Review uncovered when we examined the author list.

The research team was comprised of two women and four men. In other words, the group contained 67% men and only 33% women.

It’s unclear why a “woke” squad decrying sex bias in dead-animal studies was not more vigilant about guarding against sexism in their own work. Oops.

Natalie Cooper — the lead author — concedes that the males of many animal species are “larger and more colorful” than females and that could be a major reason for the slightly skewed male-to-female ratio in the animal exhibits.

However, Cooper insists that sex bias abounds in the field of dead-animal research — and this oppressive sexism must end.

Female pigeons and squirrels at Central Park in New York City did not reply to BizPac Review’s requests for comment on how this “sexism” affects them.


Meanwhile, it’s unclear why the “woke” researchers at London’s Natural History Museum assume there are only two genders of animals.

After all, a recent BBC documentary being used in elementary schools to indoctrinate children ages 9-12 claims that there are 100 different gender identities.

Last month, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson — an award-winning physician — was viciously smeared as a transphobic bigot because he believes there are two genders.

Specifically, Dr. Carson — a world-renowned brain surgeon — underscored that you can’t “change” your gender simply by saying you’re a woman if you’re biologically born a male.

Carson underscored that he has nothing against transgender individuals, but was merely pointing out some immutable biological facts.

Carson explained: “There are biological and scientific issues that have to be dealt with [when you’re transgender]. But regardless of that, I have always said we are supposed to serve all the people. And if somebody wants to be transgender, that’s fine. We try to serve them as well.”

In response, Ben Carson was dragged on social media as a transphobic bigot. He said he reached out to the LGBT community to ease their concerns, but they ignored him.

“I have offered transgender groups an opportunity to let me know what their solution would be so that everybody’s rights are observed,” he said. “I haven’t heard one peep [from them].”
