I would make the claim that nature has no intention whatsoever.

is anyone willing to entertain the idea that Nature has no intention for gender?

and you actually examined the proof as opposed to assuming the truth matches your original belief? there are numerous reasons for thinking this is a real thing, including its universal appearance in every culture in history, well before "evil science" even existed.

Im saying studies seeking an answer and regarding it as fact. Proving what you aim to prove with a biased view.

the purpose of science is to ask questions and seek answers. there is no other purpose for science. what people do with that knowledge is no longer the realm of science.

the main reason behind transgender suicide is social stigmatization. that has nothing to do with their gender choice. society did that to them.

The preaching of gender as a personal belief is ridiculous--the beauty of science for a purpose. This rhetoric causes higher rates of depression and suicide in transgenders. Most people who have "gender" questions are redirected and stick with their biological gender.

you are confusing sex and gender.
sex is biological. only male or female.
gender is social, and can be expanded.

Swearing like a petulant child doesn't strengthen your argument, nor do personal attacks. You didn't say "the majority of people belong to one of two genders" you said there are only two. If there is even a single person who does not fit that argument, you are wrong. If that is still too complicated for you I can try to use smaller words to explain it. I don't have to delve into any other reasons you are wrong if you still can't refute that.

because everyone else isnt BORN WITH BOTH GENITALIA are they you intellectually challenged boy. normal human beings, i dont know if yourr familiar with them or not, have only one genital- either a penis or a vagina. in this situation, the genitalia decides their gender. Hermaphrodites however, are deformed. therefore the most logical thing to do is attach their gender to whichever one they look most alike. in reality, theyre such a minority that your question is retarded in on itself. why do dumbasses always like using minority anecdotes as arguements to dismiss the logical majority?

I'm glad we now have your ruling. Hermaphrodites are whichever gender you think they look most like while for everyone else looks don't matter at all. I'm glad your beliefs are so internally consistent.

How small a minority they are is irrelevant. Even if there were only one person, they exist outside of your narrow viewpoint, so saying there are only two genders is either wrong, or you need to explain how they fit into one category.

dave, thats a physical deformity. most people are not like that. theyre a tiny f***ing minority. for the general population, the 99.99%, their gender shall be defined by their genitals. for a hemaphrodite their gender shall be whichever one they look most like.

So which of these two distinct, immutable genders do hermaphrodites fall into in your world view?

X and Y chromosomes, their are two combinations XX and XY, sure their are mutations, but that doesn't mean their are more than two genders, and u can't change ur gender, Cuz you don't like the clothes "society" is "suppressing" you to wear.

U r the gender u r born with, and u can't change it Cuz u feel like it

2 years, 6 months ago

Some people are born with XY chromosomes but can't respond to tester one, so therefore become female physically, but mentally they feel "masculine".

its "identify" not "classify"

Only two genders, and you can't just change it by saying you "classify" as a different gender
