The reply was to psychdave as it appears in the app so that's why I assumed that's what you were replying to....also the topic specifically states gender not sex, so in order to stay on topic you need to know the distinction between the two. Thats why I replied to the post. The way you posted the reply led to it looking like you were arguing nonsense, so I interjected, I apologize if I ruffled your feathers. It seemed perfectly reasonable response given the thread order and content.

when I click on the "replied to" button on your post, it leads to psych dave. I think that's why there is confusion.

You responded without seemingly understanding what you were responding to. Calling you on that seems reasonable. What's your deal?

please look at psychdave's argument again. He's talking about gender roles, not Hermaphroditism. There is a distinction between sex and gender. You need to look up those differences before you can engage on this subject matter in any sort of productive manner.

isn't it a disorder? because usually people with two genitals don't have fully functional ones all together. we cant take every disorder that someone I'd born with as something normal.

It depends on who you believe and where you look. There are cultures in which there were no genders, just differences in sex, until colonial influences arrived, like the Yoruba.

There is also the Ben Sex-Role Inventory which divides people into masculine, feminine, androgynous, or undifferentiated based on their responses.

So the short answer is that there have been different genders for many, many years. They are just getting more publicity now than they did in recent generations because the influences that repressed them have been reduced.

In science, there is a distinction between sex and gender. Sex refers to the biological state of one's identify (male or female). Gender refers to one's identity within a society. It refers to the roles, expectations, and activities assigned to specific genders (so masculinity and femininity). Sex is simply a biological identifier and thus a clear dichotomy exists (baring hermaphroditism and other biological abnormalities).

Gender on the other hand, is a collection of identifying features rooted in social norms that pertain to femininity or masculinity. Thus a person who's sex is male, can assume a feminine gender role and a person who's sex is female can assume a masculine gender role. Gender roles may also blur the lines of societal norms with some people assuming some gender roles which are considered masculine and some which are considered feminine and thus being placed somewhere in between the male and female gender.

When discussing gender, we're not really talking about biology, we're talking about psychology and anthropology.

hermaphrodites have always existed and we're even worshiped as gods in the roman empire. I'm sure they've had various roles in other pre-sex-obsessed-christianity.

Sure, but there's still only two genders. Your genitalia defines what your gender is, male or female, but you can choose to IDENTIFY as one or the other, doesn't mean you are the other.

Anthropology has viewed gender as being a sliding scale for decades. It makes more sense to look at gender this way. Having extreme masculine and feminine gender identities at either end and placing people along the scale as appropriate....
