Opinions are thoughts that people have in their head, are you stating that gender is all in our heads? I am not against transgenders or anyone like that, but when you are born you gain the genes for a specific sex. Opinions are thoughts in your head that you are allowed to choose and tweak, biology and the chemical makeup of your body you are not. Everyone has different opinions on themselves and others, so when one person identifies as a male but was previously a female, people tend to look at them differently. It's their opinion and it doesn't mean it's true. If gender was based on other's opinions you'd be misgendered every single day.

I agree with the Negative. Scientifically, gender is determined at the time of conception. When the baby is conceived, a chromosome from the sperm cell, either X or Y, fuses with the X chromosome in the egg cell, determining whether the baby will be female (XX) or male (XY). This is not an opinion and is biologically and physiologically defined.

Gender's not an opinion really, if you're asking the person you're talking about what their gender is. Unless they don't know what their gender is? Odd question.
