OK, Let's begin.

Humans have two sexes: male and female. Males have the chromosomes XY, And females have the chromosomes XX. When a human is born with a different set of chromosomes, They are either retarded (Turner's syndrome and others) or hermaphrodites. So technically, There are more than two sexes, But all the non-XX or non-XY ones are just deviations from the original. Just like when some people are born with twelve toes, You don't teach kids that people have twelve toes, You teach kids that people have ten toes. Which means that biologically there are only two sexes.

Now, Some people say that sex doesn't equal gender. Which is biologically incorrect. For example, The case of David Reimer (https://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/David_Reimer) proves that. When he was a baby, Reimer lost his penis in an accident. A doctor called John Money, Who believed that there were more than two genders and that gender was determined by culture and social conditions, Raised him. Money raised David (re-named Brenda) as a female, And even had the boy take sex reassignment surgery. If gender was really a result of culture and not connected to sex, Then David would be perfectly fine as a female, Right? But Reimer later had an operation to return to his biological, Male sex and even commited suicide because of Money's abuse. If gender was not equal to sex, Then Reimer would be perfectly fine with being a girl.

Some people also claim that gender is a spectrum. You could say that every person is a special mix of male and female. For example, A gay man might be more feminine than a straight man, But does that mean they are of different gender? Of course not. But then, SJWs create new genders such as Netrouis, Third Gender, Demigirl, Epicene, Femme, Butch. . . Which are complete nonsense and are really just different mixes of masculinity and femininity. Science says that there are two genders: male and female, And there are some deviations like agender and genderfluid. But these aren't real genders, They are switching between a gender and having no gender. Just like atheism isn't a religion, Agender isn't a gender either. Which leaves us with 2 genders: male and female, And various mixes of those.

@BiggsBoonj I thought you're arguments in the second round were amazing. You really convinced me (even though I always thought there were two genders). Keep it up! I'm excited to see where this is going :)
