And...what's your point? Have we not, as rational thinkers, far exceeded the point where the person's sexual orientation takes a back seat to their accomplishments?

Guy, girl, transgender, natural sex, it doesn't matter! Whether you agree with someone's research or not, personal attacks -- especially of a sexual nature -- are not only childish but really have no place here. I'd expect this kind of pedantry on Slashdot but I thought the OSNews readership had grown up some.

And I do realize you weren't making an accusation yourself, rather just bringing up the topic. But my point is, who the hell cares? I certainly don't, and my opinion of the person's research is not affected in the least by the question of her sexuality.

I was just pointing that information to people saying that "she is hot" because maybe they don't know about this.

My opinion of her research is not affected in anyway.

I was going to dismiss this out of hand but after taking a closer look, it's slightly plausible.
First off, she's only "hot" if you haven't seen an attractive woman in a while. I'm not saying ugly but definitely not hot.
Regarding her gender, she does have man-hands and is very slim-hipped but there doesn't seem to be any trace of an Adam's apple. She also has good-sized breasts, although hormones or implants can easily provide those.
So I think she's just a woman with a few manly characterstics.
