Did a Panel of Scientists Admit Women are Officially Mammals?
According to World News Daily Report (WNDR), they did. The article stated that in an unprecedented ruling, a panel of Saudi Arabian scientists concluded that women are more than simply “objects”, they are now confirmed to be mammals. This grants them the same rights as other mammals such as goats and camels, but still does not grant them rights as humans. The article then continues to quote Jane Austin, a supposed spokeswoman for the Women’s Liberation Action Network, saying “This is a great leap forward for women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. It may seem too little, too late, but it is truly a milestone event for all women in the region”.
This unreliable website posted this fake news story May 7th, 2016. The photograph of the supposed “panel of Saudi scientists” (shown below) clearly displayed a logo representing the World Government Summit which was an event in Dubai regarding shaping the future of worldwide government. This event did not include any scientists nor presented any reports relating to the biological classification of women.
Additionally, the website this article was posted on is well-known for its fake news in the science community. They have a well-hidden disclaimer stating that they are not responsible for the truth behind the news they post, yet the home page states "News You Can Trust". Regardless of their disclaimer, any site posting untruthful articles should be taken offline. Many Americans tend to believe whatever they read online and will not do the proper background checks that are required to prove if what they are reading is factual.
