    ...'typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones' - conveniently left that bit out, did you?

    Gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and femininity. Depending on the context, these characteristics may include biological sex (i.e. the state of being male, female or an intersex variation which may complicate sex assignment), sex-based social structures (including gender roles and other social roles), or gender identity

    Are we finished playing dictionary wars now?

    Exactly I could say I'm a dog but I'm not at the end of the day. This transgender, gender fluid shite is a load of bollocks

    Are you finished trying to be politically correct?

    There are 2 genders and 2 sexes, male and female. End of. If you're arguing against that then you're just being a contrarian.

    Which sex and/or gender is a hermaphrodite? Even if I agree with you that there are absolutely only 2, why is it not possible for a person of biological 'male sex' to identity as a 'female' gender?

    I'm not even gonna bother. You obviously don't get it. :lol:
     
  9. I'd suggest skipping the media reports and flipping over to Scholar. Go hog wild.

    Which sex is a hermaphrodite?... Why is this so difficult for you?

    It's a minefield. But imho some parents are catching onto the whole thing and sometimes it seems to be nothing more that attention seeking behaviour which is being reinforced.

    I agree, and it is a minefield. I also think if parents want to raise their child gender 'pronoun neutral' (which I think is unnecessary question begging and attention seeking, to be honest) then they are going to have to find a better alternative than 'they', because they is a fucking plural that is often inapplicable.

  13. I’ve always known I want to practice lesbianism. ;)
     
  14. If someone grows up and decides they want or need a gender change then fair enough, good luck to them.
    What concerns me where children are concerned, bearing in mind that under the law, minors are not considered mentally developed enough to give consent to sex, how can a minor be mentally developed enough to want gender change therapy?
    If this is allowed to go on, it is one step away from lowering the age of sexual consent.
    Kids should be the gender they were born as, until they are old enough to even consider such a change.

    I've just watched this on iPlayer and found it quite disturbing that very young kids are being allowed to make these decisions. How can they possibly be mentally developed enough to know what they want? Perhaps because I've never had these thoughts and feelings is why I don't fully understand. Are the parents really helping dressing boys as girls and vice versa?
     
  16. Would have been class to be given that kind of clout as a kid, I'd have eaten nowt but skittles and push pops.

    I realize it's a sign of the times and all that, plus it is America, but is it something in the water? Ive no problem with anyone of adult age deciding what they want to do with their bodies, but kids as young as 5 :eek:

    It's a frigging mad world out there :lol:
     
  18. They aren't even old enough to decide their own bed time but they can choose their gender. Ridiculous.
