You are the one who it not telling the truth, and I've never been anything but civil to you, although sometimes a bit blunt. If speaking the plain truth hurts your feelings, that is your issue.

I've invited you over and over again to make your case and so far the only rebuttals you've made have been so general as to be useless or in the case of the specific ones, so absurd as to be worthless, e.g., the ones about the cervix not having any purpose and about Sarah Hrdy not writing an entire book that supports my assertions). Those are statements of fact. Here, let me quote you:

"No, the cervix does not have a purpose. If you wish to make the claim that the human cervix carries out a sorting process, you'll have to provide evidence to support that claim. I'm not sure what that evidence would look like."

Hmm..., how about a basic biology textbook?

When it's brought to your attention how off base you are, instead of conceding, as one would do in a mature and civil discussion, you backpedal in ridiculous ways to try to save face, e.g., pretending that you meant that a cervix doesn't have free will rather than what you actually said, which claimed that it has no function in the body. Or refusing to acknowledge the Hrdy's book that you recommended to me says the very opposite of what you are asserting.

So, for the fifth time, I repeat, if you have some kind of actual rebuttal to the things that I've said that makes sense, by all means make them. Otherwise, stop wasting my time.
