Why can liberals use science to debunk / figure out anything... except
the gender issue?
There is no "gender issue" insofar as there has always been people who feel that they were born in a body that didn't suit the way they feel inside. Just as there has always been people (often from more rural areas that have less exposure to different ways of life, perspectives, and education) who have found reason to ridicule another's experience because they don't understand it.
In the past few decades it has become more acceptable (while it's been even more accepted at various points in history) for people to be vocal about the disparity between their genitals and their mind, which largely is a good sign socially. There will always be a faction however, that believes that if it doesn't fit into their worldview (or beliefs) that it's wrong, immoral, or something that should be publicly mocked. Unfortunately the mocking tends to gather more support than resistance because with anything that's a very rare perspective, people often don't know enough to properly support the minority viewpoint, but it's exceedingly easy to just say something's weird and dismiss it.
