Texas state Rep. James Talarico stated that there are not two biological sexes, but there are six, according to The Blaze.
Texas House Bill 4042 was created to ban biological males from competing in girl’s sports, K-12.
“The bill seems to think there are two,” he said. “The one thing I want us to all be aware of recognize is that modern science obviously recognizes that there are many more than two biological sexes. In fact, there are six, which honestly, Rep. Hefner, surprised me, too.”
“In fact, there are six.”
“The point is that biologically speaking, scientifically speaking, sex is a spectrum, and oftentimes can be very ambiguous.”
If it wasn't recorded, you wouldn't believe us.

Beth Stelzer stated, “The male advantage is immutable and that there are in fact two sexes they’re dimorphic, XX/XY.”
“The other quote ‘sexes’ mentioned are disorders of sexual development that are variants of XX or XY chromosome.”
“They are still disorders of male or female.”
“If it wasn’t recorded, you wouldn’t believe us.”
Talarico said he’s “not well versed in this issue area.”
“I’m not a scientist, I’m a politician, [which is] a lot worse than a scientist.”
From The Blaze:
The National Institutes of Health reports that “sex chromosome variations” are “not inherited and occur due to a random error during the formation of reproductive cells (eggs and sperm) in a parent.”
Such variations often result in significant health and physical abnormalities, the public health agency added.
“The most common numeric sex chromosome variations include Turner syndrome (45, X); 47, XXY (which usually causes features of Klinefelter syndrome); 47, XYY; and 47, XXX (trisomy X),” according to NIH. “In some cases, individuals have some cells with the usual 2 sex chromosomes, and some cells with extra or missing sex chromosomes; this is called chromosomal mosaicism.”
