  • Sex, Gender, and Expression Are All Different

    Sex is BIOLOGICAL. Linked to a person's genitalia and reproductive organs, biological sex is what you are assigned at birth. Contrary to popular belief, even biological sex is not binary. Sex AND gender are spectrums, as is evident by intersex people and others whose genitals don't match the classic penis-vagina binary you may be familiar with.
    Gender is PSYCHOLOGICAL. It is how you identify, and it may or may not correspond with your sex. This is called TRANSGENDER, which is a term for ANYONE who identifies as a gender OTHER than what their sex dictates, not just trans women or men. This includes non-binary, agender, gender-fluid or demi-gender individuals who identify anywhere on the gender SPECTRUM that is not strictly male or female.
    Expression is SOCIETAL; how you display your gender based on society's predetermined gender classifications. A male can express himself as more feminine than masculine, but as long as he identifies as male, he is MALE. How one expresses oneself, feminine, masculine, or androgynous, is not related to their gender, and though people may generally express differently than their assigned gender dictates, this does not necessarily peg them as trans. Even trans-men may present as more feminine than masculine, though they still identify as male.
    This is just some simple vocabulary of course. If any of you bothered to conduct a brief google search, I am sure you would find these definitions to be correct, as well as some scientific evidence from REAL ACTUAL SCIENTISTS (gasp) who would back up my statement quite nicely,
    And remember; you don't get to police how people identify, and, if you're going to complain about how 'triggered' a transgender person may get by you misgendering them (probably on purpose), to stop bitching about people that are different than you and just respect their fucking identities even though you may not agree with them.

  • As a College Debater

    I have years of humanities studies under my belt, along with a doctorate that I'm aiming towards to be a surgeon, I can tell you that there are more than two genders. And sexes.
    There is indeed a spectrum of gender, much like there are spectrums of illness and moods, and it has no correlation with what physical reproductive system you have.
    And to say there are only two genders, when you really mean sexes, is incorrect as well. Intersex people are born with multiple reproductive chromosomes and can have both male and female parts. But Intersex people also can fall on a spectrum of varying symptoms; both reproductive parts, both sets of hormones, different hormone release, etc. Everything in nature can fall on a spectrum.
    Gender is just how we choose to label ourselves, much how people label their sexualities. Who are you to tell someone how they do and don't feel? If someone identifies with a label, it does you no harm at all and makes someone feel comfortable in their own skin. The reason "so many" genders exist is because so many people feel the exact same way and have agreed on a word to express themselves with.
    I can 100% guarantee that no medical professional or medically trained scientist will argue against the Gender Spectrum Theory. If you want a REAL, CREDIBLE answer to the question "Are there more than 2 genders" (for a debate, or to be more educated in general) there are tons of medical and psychological essays written on the topic. Or you can go to any hospital and ask a surgeon or therapeutic counselor. Plenty of Universities also support the theory and have their own courses and seminars online for your pleasure.
    (Monash University has a very simple article on it, if you need a research kickstart)
    :) Don't be ignorant, research before you spew out nonsense and lose credibility with others. No one likes that one homophobic (transphobic, racist, sexist, etc.) person.

  • There are more than 2 genders!

    If there were only 2 genders, then tell me, if there are only 2 genders, why do you get so angry when people say they are non-binary/genderqueer etc... You know that when they say there are more than 2 genders, you are only angry when they say that because you know that they are right and you are wrong. Anyone who thinks there are only 2 genders is either braindead or a bias idiot who isn't open to being told that they are wrong.

  • Difference in Gender and Sex

    Genders are different from sex. There are only two sexes as they refer to the biological and physical traits of a human. (Hermaphrodites exist). Genders are what the person identifies as and therefore and much different than sexes. Unless the person to the right of me is a scientist (which I highly doubt due to his ignorance of the internet and the example given, there's no reason no to look up the terms on the internet yourself and find out.

  • Only two sexes and genders

    If a person came up and said I feel like a cheetah today so therefore I am a cheetah you would look at them and be like um no your still and will always be a human. If you're a male that says they feel like a female then you are still and will always be a male no need to classify any further.

  • Yes! There are more than 2 genders

    Yes, they're are more than two genders. Male and female are just biological sexes. Gender is a variety of identities and expressions. It's for non-conforming people. I'm cisgender but a supporter of the non-binary community. More genders=more diversity. People need to do research to receive a better understanding. Like for real.

  • Sex and gender are different.

    Sex and gender are both defined in the dictionary differently. Sex is defined as and by whats in between your legs, and gender is defined as a mental identity. In terms of sex, there is also more than 2, with intersex being medically recognized in the healthcare industry. Gender is an identity expression.

  • Gender and Sex are interchangeable

    The problem with stating that there are more than 2 genders is that anyone can identify as anything. It is a slippery slope. Consider this, I , a biological male, Identify as a wolf. According to the gender spectrum, its OK and if argued that it is not we can point out that it is no less valid then someone who identifies as neither male or female but an us.

  • No, whoever thinks there is needs to stop and go to school

    GENDER IS DEFINED BY THE CHROMOSOMES, ANYONE WHO THINKS IT ISNT, MUST HAVE EXTRA ONES. If you don't want to go by the "people can be born with the wrong genitals" thing, that may be true, females can be born with a penis, and males can be born with a vagina, but the constant throughout gender, is the chromosome. If you have XY, you are a male, if you have XX you are a female, this isn't that hard, it's basic biology. I am sad that 30% of people said yes to this, they are stupid if they say so.

  • Only two sexes and genders

    If a person came up and said I feel like a cheetah today so therefore I am a cheetah you would look at them and be like um no your still and will always be a human. If you're a male that says they feel like a female then you are still and will always be a male no need to classify any further.

  • Exposed. . .

    Many people believe that there are more than two genders. The evidence supporting this is that “sex and gender are not the same thing”. The definition of sex is as stated “the fact of belonging to one of the sexes.” Now if you where to look up on google the definition of sex or gender, you will notice right next to the synonymous in blue is the word sex or gender depending on which you look up first. For example if you look up the definition of sex gender with be in the synonyms section also working vice versa.

  • There are only 2 genders

    Your gender and your sex is the same thing it is determined by xy and xx there are disorders like tripple x syndrome where a (female) have an extra x chromosome but thats not a different gender With that being said if there were more genders there would be like a z chromosome or a w chromasome that would determine a different gender probably like 60% of people that claim they are a gender other than male or female are either looking for an excuse for things they do or they are confused or they have a mental disability

  • People should stop this

    This is not okay, people who try to do this are attempting to be god, I can guarantee that most people who say they are for this, don't believe in genetically modifying plants and other things, you are doing the same thing, modifying an organism, but at least gene manipulation is something that can naturally happen, and not from some idiot thinking they are better than the ONLY TWO genders that exist.

  • There are only 2 genders.

    You are not assigned a gender/sex, you are born as one or the other. You do not get to choose. If you are born a male, you have a penis. If you are born a female, you have a vagina. Simple human biology. There are 2 types of genitals, meaning there are only 2 genders.

    P.S - Gender and sex are the same thing.

  • Men are men and women are women

    If you have the male reproductive organ, you are a man. If you have the female reproductive organ, you are a woman. That is it. There is no in-between. The only people who believe the trash that there are more genders, are mentally ill and need immediate attention. They have most likely been abused as children and hate all people in this world. Therefore, they want to separate themselves from all other people and become freaks.

  • If there are more than two NATURAL genders,

    Then there are three; male, female, and hermaphrodite.

    While it is true that, from time to time, science does have to update the facts when new evidence comes to light (for instance when lifeforms were discovered to be living in places and situations which were previously thought to have been devoid of life or incapable of supporting life), science has yet to announce to the World any new evidence that adds new and wonderous genders to the current accepted number of genders.

    IF an extra gender was ever to be added to the natural two genders, then perhaps only natural hermaphrodite would be an accepted addition.
