Jordan Peterson, Cathy Newman interview on Channel 4:
“There’s this idea that hierarchical structures are a sociological construct of the Western patriarchy and that is so untrue that it’s almost unbelievable, and I use the lobster as an example because we divulged from lobsters in evolutionary history about three hundred fifty million years ago. Lobsters exist in hierarchies and have a nervous system attuned to the hierarchy, and that nervous system runs on serotonin just like our nervous systems do. The nervous system of the lobster and of the human being is so similar that antidepressants work on lobsters.”
Specifically the men who gender as women often refer to animals like the Clown Fish to prove their beliefs that humans can also morph every cell of their body to transform their biological sex.
Clown fish males can naturally change their genitals into female genitals. So when a dominant female clown fish dies, a male clown fish will morph its body into a female body. The Clown Fish does this as a natural ability. It’s a capacity that the species can do, and it’s biologically done without Human inventions such synthetic manufactured hormones and cosmetic surgeries like gender affirmation surgery.
Clownfish, wrasses, moray eels, gobies and other fish species are known to change sex. A school of clownfish is always a hierarchy with a dominant female. When she dies, the most dominant male changes sex and takes her place.
In simultaneous hermaphroditism individuals possess fully functional male and female gonads while in sequential hermaphroditism fish change sex sometime during its life, either from male to female (protandry) or from female to male (protogyny). Factors triggering sex change differ among species. In some, particularly in protandrous species, sex change is size dependent and eventually every fish in the population will change sex. In territorial-haremic species sex change is socially mediated, and it is more common in protogynous species. One interesting exception are the clownfishes (subfamily Amphiprioninae) which are protandrous, monogamous and sex change seems to be controlled socially, i.e. male does not change sex when attaining a certain size, but only after the female disappearance.2 3
Clownfish species display a strong social hierarchy based on size.5
Although a simplification, we hereafter call these social assemblages families. If the dominant female of a family dies, all subordinates seize the opportunity to ascend in rank and grow. The male is poised to become female and rapidly changes sex to assume the vacated position, while the largest undifferentiated fish completes the breeding pair by turning into a mature male in a short time.7 8
