Do you believe in the concept of a third or fourth gender and if yes, should the USA government recognize third gendered people?

Wtf is a 3rd gender?
discomfiting says2014-07-25T19:12:43.5159596-05:00
Well are we talking about genders or sexes? There's dozens of different genders and 3 different sexes.

Hemphrodite!!!!! That is what someone is called if they have both male parts and female parts. After the Greek god of bisexuality: Hemphroditus.
ben671176 says2014-07-25T20:16:32.8964504-05:00
Duh, how would you not know that?
dietorangesoda says2014-07-25T20:17:38.4177104-05:00
Thats not a 3rd gender thats a mistake of nature biologically u are either a male of female and doctors can tell and correct it
ben671176 says2014-07-25T20:21:32.7521241-05:00
Whatever, they are still there.

It's not a mistake of natural..... That's very insulting and disrespectful beyond belief. They ARE a third sex. "When possible avoid expressions like mal-developed or undeveloped, errors of development, defective genitals, abnormal, or mistakes of nature. Emphasize that all of these conditions are biologically understandable while they are statistically uncommon" - milton diamond, one of the most experienced professors of human anatomy and reproductive biology. Intersex people are a third sex, not a mistake of nature. A sex is not the same thing as gender. A sex in a term used for describing the biological sex organs a person has, a gender is identity like androgynous, agender and binarism. There is a difference between the word "sex" and "gender".

In theory a species could have hundreds of genders although that would be incredibly inefficient . I base gender of the production of sex cells humans only produce eggs and sperm so only two genders/sexes. If someone produces both they are both male and female but not a new gender .

@Formerland1 gender is to do with more the social and cultural differences, NOT biological.

Everyone knows gender is mostly a pyshical thing.

Gender is not biological, gender is emotional and mental.
reece says2014-07-26T06:43:45.6556484-05:00
@discomfiting it's more to do with emotional/mental side.It can also be used for biological reasons but not as much.
discomfiting says2014-07-26T06:49:01.9531380-05:00
People generally use "sex" when they're talking about body, not gender and vise versus; however, too many ignorant people use them as synonyms.
PreferNotToBeLabeled says2014-07-26T10:08:10.5291564-05:00
Oh so my penis doesn't make me male it's my thoughts right. The doctor who determined what I was when I was born must of read my mind to figure out I was male.
PreferNotToBeLabeled says2014-07-26T10:09:04.7689656-05:00
I think we can all just say the English language sucks.
reece says2014-07-26T10:11:36.0382868-05:00
@PreferNotToBeLabeled why because it isn't convenient to your argument LOL, and yes i agree it sucks.
PreferNotToBeLabeled says2014-07-26T11:03:23.5582399-05:00
Lol no because in this case the definition doesn't make logical sense and shouldn't be applied to the the real world. Go ask a stranger on the street what defines gender. They will say 100% of the time it's your reproductive organs.
reece says2014-07-26T11:24:25.1857015-05:00
@PreferNotToBeLabeled It depends who you talk to and how intelligent they are.If you live in america, go to another country and ask people and you'll see i'm right and the definition as well.
PreferNotToBeLabeled says2014-07-26T15:57:08.6890169-05:00
You know I'm right. Your DNA, penis, balls, etc. make you male while your DNA, vagina, breasts, etc. make you female. Regardless of what a book says this is fact. You're an Atheist like me you shouldn't follow a book blindly.
dietorangesoda says2014-07-26T20:04:37.9654484-05:00
Discomforting spare me the political correctness crap there are only 2 genders and its not disrespectful for me to say that there is no 3rd sex thats ridiculous
discomfiting says2014-07-26T20:06:20.9702675-05:00
It's not political correctness; it's called not being a b!Tch....
reece says2014-07-27T00:39:44.9828267-05:00
@PreferNotToBeLabeled the ward gender is ambiguous you idiot.Yes, you are right but it is used more for social and cultural differences.
reece says2014-07-27T00:40:02.3256295-05:00
Word*
PreferNotToBeLabeled says2014-07-27T01:05:43.0627892-05:00
I've made my point and you've agreed its right. I'm done here lol
reece says2014-07-27T01:08:38.1522322-05:00
@PreferNotToBeLabeled Do you agree with me?
