Transgender People's Gender Are Valid
Debate Rounds (2)
"Sex refers to a person's biological status and is typically categorized as male, female, or intersex."----"Gender refers to the attitudes, feelings, and behaviors that a given culture associates with a person's biological sex."
So based on the statements above, gender is made up whereas sex is not and is based on your body and it's parts. Based on that, transgender people's gender are validate. Maybe my opponent can prove me wrong.
Firstly, I respectfully do not know what you are arguing. That might sound weird but let me clarify. Yes, gender is obviously made up. All the word means is a person being socially accepted as something because they want to be identified that way. We know that and you can't argue against that because it's a fact. http://www.merriam-webster.com.... This is why I did not understand your argument and what you are arguing for. I agree that transgender is validated as a gender, because all that it means is what they want to be identified as.
Although transgender is a gender it is definitely not a sex. You quoted something which is most certainly not the correct definition of sex. If you search the definition of sex on webster and even google, they both show that sex does not include intersex. It specifically includes male and female. Your biological organs determine your sex. Not "your body and it's part's" as you said. Which can obviously change with surgical removals. I came to this debate to tell you this because I don't really think that your argument makes much sense. I am not trying to be mean but just had to tell you. Nobody on this sight can argue against a fact, so I just thought I would just say something. No hard feelings. :)
Thanks for the debate.
