Just look at the demographics: http://www.debate.org/about/demographics/
Sophia13 says2015-04-08T19:35:33.5208043-05:00
*sigh of disappointment* Alright, listen up. First of all, this is a pointless poll in an effort to extort useless personal information from strangers for no real or reasonable purpose. Second of all, the two options are very strict and discriminatory. What if someone identifies as two genders? Or neither gender? I, personally, cannot chose either option as neither of them accurately describe my identity. Can you at the very least add an "Other" category?
SamStevens says2015-04-08T19:46:06.6134570-05:00
It is important not to confuse sex and gender. Sex is " two main categories (male and female) into which humans and many other living things are divided on the basis of their reproductive functions"(google definitions). In this case, there are only two categories. Gender is "the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones)"(google definitions). If this poll is asking the Debate.Org user base what their sex is, only two options are necessary, and if that is the case, this poll is not discriminatory. If this poll is asking the Debate.Org user base what their gender is, this poll can be viewed as discriminatory.

Sophia13. Your a boy or a girl. Penis or vagina. I'm not talking about ones social gender. I'm talking about their physical gender or their sex.
Dilara says2015-04-08T21:38:11.2630164-05:00
I wanted to see how many of each were on here. The demographics page doesn't help because lots of people are signed up to DDO but aren't active.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T21:51:40.2087822-05:00
"Penis or vagina. " What if someone lost their part.
PetersSmith says2015-04-08T22:11:28.4649991-05:00
Mathgeekjoe: How do you lose a vagina exactly?
SamStevens says2015-04-08T22:19:28.5945739-05:00
PetersSmith: People can lose their vagina by being subjected to Judas cradle(http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/Judas_cradle) or the Spanish donkey(http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/Wooden_horse_(device)).
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:21:41.6018687-05:00
"Mathgeekjoe: How do you lose a vagina exactly?" Survive getting cut in half.
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:27:44.9287306-05:00
How about x or Y chromosome. That's the difference between males and females
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:29:23.4111349-05:00
Some people are missing a chromosome and others have an extra one.
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:30:46.6667338-05:00
2 X chromosomes equals girl and an x and a Y chromosome equals boy. Unless you have a condition you are one or the other.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:31:35.7433900-05:00
Some people have those conditions, this poll is bias against them.
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:37:50.4367060-05:00
And their world will crumble because of one biased poll
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:39:41.4088501-05:00
In case you didn't know, I am trying to be difficult.
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:45:39.4375648-05:00
I'm fine with people who have more than one sex due to a disease or being transgendered.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:49:50.5125632-05:00
But the question of the poll is are they male or female. Which are they?
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:53:12.3912488-05:00
If you have a condition that makes you both genders than you can choose the one you are physically closest to.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T22:54:13.8532720-05:00
What about if the human consciences is put into a robot? What option do they pick?
Dilara says2015-04-08T22:59:36.3302704-05:00
Was that a human conscience taken from a man or women?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T23:00:44.5477585-05:00
It was taken from two people one man, one women.
Dilara says2015-04-08T23:02:57.6201130-05:00
Than like the person with the medical condition it's both. If it had to choose one it would be the one or wants. And i don't think that would really be a person in witch case the laws determine it's gender would be different.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T23:04:38.0336448-05:00
But it has a female and male consciences, neither one is dominate over the other, it can't choose one gender.
Dilara says2015-04-08T23:04:39.2608447-05:00
I need to go to sleep. We can continue our deep intellectual discussion tomorrow.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T23:05:10.9376778-05:00
Good night.
Dilara says2015-04-08T23:05:29.7414739-05:00
It would flip a coin. Goodnight now! :)
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T23:07:36.8790289-05:00
Remember people, robots, aliens and what not, if you don't know your gender, flip a coin. But wait, which gender will be heads which will be tails?
TBR says2015-04-09T09:26:39.3258389-05:00
PetersSmith and MathgeekJoe have valid points. Mathgeek. If I implant my mind in a robot, it will be an Adrienne Barbeaubot - HOWEVER, I will be a man, stuffed into the FINE exterior of Adrienne Barbeaubot with the strength of like 50 men.

TBR says2015-04-09T09:27:49.2891447-05:00
Disappointing first link. This one is better. Http://media.Ebaumsworld.Com/picture/Twiggs120/BARBEAUBOT.Png
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-09T09:28:05.6064309-05:00
The comment section was alternating between gamma burst and hand for the longest time.
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-04-09T10:22:01.4366022-05:00
@mathgeekjoe: Gamma burst - so that's what it's called! I thought it was a black hole or white dwarf or one of those astronomical terms I've heard of but don't know the meaning of. :P
TBR says2015-04-09T11:39:34.8271122-05:00
What do you think MathGeekJoe? Yes to the Adrienne Barbeaubot ?
Dilara says2015-04-09T12:32:28.6796754-05:00
Male heads female tales
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-10T08:36:38.4806376-05:00
"What do you think MathGeekJoe? Yes to the Adrienne Barbeaubot ?" I am using a school computer, it is blocking the link.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-10T08:37:13.4737417-05:00
"Male heads female tales" Why not female heads, male tails?
Dilara says2015-04-10T10:35:01.6005478-05:00
Because I felt like it
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-10T10:38:50.9161378-05:00
"Because I felt like it" If I remember correctly from past experience, if a girl says this don't disagree with them if you don't want to get beaten up. But I don't learn from my past mistakes, so why did you feel like saying "Male heads female tales"? Please don't hurt me.
Dilara says2015-04-10T10:44:38.8245618-05:00
Because men are stronger
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-10T10:46:35.5836089-05:00
Wrong.
