I personally say there is more than two genders. Sex and gender are different things. There is basically two sexes but there is a few more genders. There is 7+ billion people, we can't all fit into two boxes. Gender is a bit more on how you view yourself, what you feel comfortable being labeled as, and overall your own happiness. Obviously there is a limit to this, as to where that is, I don't know. I will admit Tumblr created a lot of fake genders though. Cultures long before us have acknowledged more than two genders. Gender is more of a social construct. People are so quick to say XX is female and XY is male, but if you bring up the fact that some people have different combinations, they say it doesn't matter and they are still female or male. It's nearly impossible to tell someone's chromosomes so you might as well not be a bigot and just respect them. Not everyone is like you.

Look down. Is there a peepee? Yes? You are a boy.

Look down. Is there flabby ham slices? Yes? You are a girl.

on this I believe that there are two genders, and anything in between that is non-binary. Non binary by definition is no binary, so therefore not a gender but that doesn't mean it's not valid it is in the spectrum between boy and girl and gender is just outside of that spectrum. If you chose to say non-binary is a choice I wouldn't teal of you were wrong because I understand that this topic is almost prey based of opinion and experience.

5 points to Pro (Conduct, S&G, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Pro made a logical, rational argument about gendder and how it is differnt from sex. Con talked breifely about sex. Clear win to Pro. Also, Pro wasn't vulgar and used better sentence structure.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) Arguments are insufficiently explained. The voter is required to assess specific arguments presented by each side and explain how they affected the overall debate. While the voter does provide somewhat specific assessments, it"s unclear why Con"s arguments were unsuccessful, and why Pro"s arguments were persuasive. Simply stating that one side talked more about a given issue is not sufficient. (2) Conduct is insufficiently explained. The voter must point to instances of vulgarity if they are awarding this point on that basis. (3) S&G is insufficiently explained. Unless one side"s argument is difficult to understand as a result of how it is written, the voter may not award this point. Sentence structure may affect understanding, but the voter must point to examples.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro used arguments, Con said little, except for insulting, hateful language. There isn't a lot of clash, due to this being such a short debate. I buy Pro's argument that one can't tell one's chromosomes (or one's genitals) by appearance, and I buy that avoiding bigotry ought to play a more significant role than whatever arbitrary norms Con is pushing.
