Totally insane. We have graduated, as a culture, to idiocy.

Words have a gender; people have a sex. End of story.

I read the list. Geez, what a bunch of nonsense. I guarantee you many of those “options” are not based on established science, but Gender Studies-type activism/advocacy.

Also, I refuse to identify with “cis” anything. I’m a male, and represent roughly one-half of the biological gender equation. I don’t need a modifier to categorize me.

Let’s get something straight (pun intended) ...

“Gender” is a term that references personal pronoun usage ina sentence - he, she, him, her, (it?)

That is NOT the same thing as “sex,” of which there STILL exists only two categories - MALE and FEMALE - PERIOD!

These a-hole are allowed to get away with the continuing bastardization of language, so that they may invent, out of whole cloth, pseudo sexual “identities” and “orientations” which DO NOT EXIST IN NATURE!

And we continue to give them a pass on the deceptive practice.

The next time some ignorant jackass tells you their “gender” is this, that, or the other thing ... set them straight! Ask: “Were you born with a penis and testicles? Yes or No? Were you born with a vagina, uterus and ovaries? Yes or No?”

You are either male or female ... Your freaking pretentious “identity” is nothing more than manufactured bravo sierra so to camouflage your totally screwed up soul.

That should promptly shut them up.

I will go out of my way if necessary to NOT become familiar with these terms. People who are familiar with these terms are like people who know way too much about some particular TV show or movie. A lot of the time they are just showing off and want you to believe that that makes them smarter, or in this case, more “enlightened” or “evolved” (POTUS) than you are.

People are either male or female, and that's set in stone before we're even born.

Some folks don't want to be the gender/sex they really are, and some of those will take steps to make themselves appear to be the gender/sex they wish to be. They dress the part, they take hormones, they have various surgeries. Some achieve a pretty good appearance of the gender they are attempting to "present". However, they can never actually become anything other than what they were born as... all they can do is "dress up" and play a part.

Some of this switching around is to satisfy sexual perversion, and some is simply mental illness. Everyone seems to be trying to justify and encourage both by confusing these things with gender/sex. This is nuts.

If you're not happy with the gender you were born with, there are limits to what you should do about it... go beyond that and it becomes unhealthy for you and society.

In honor of this insanity, I have suggested a new Gender entry in Facebook, Quantum Gender with Nanosecond Variations. The definition of Quantum Gender with Nanosecond Variations that I am offering to Facebook, is as such:
A person is neither male, nor female, but is in a quantum state of maleness or femaleness, until the gender is actually observed. At that time the quantum field collapses into a true gender of male or female. However, the quantum field state returns every nanosecond, so one can never quite be sure of the gender from nanosecond to nanosecond.

Well said. I have spent some time recently researching homosexuality in order to understand the damage they are doing to the kids they have in their care. The lifestyle is both cult-like and mafia-like. Some are miserable and want to go strait but are vilified by the militant ones and terrorized into believing that reparative therapy will kill them. It is an awful situation that average people need to wake up to. The more we retool our society to accommodate their perversion, the more we enable them to destroy not only themselves, but our way of life too.

There are two sexes (not including those with real genetic or other anomalies) and as many genders as mental illness will allow. Admittedly, some mental illnesses are also genetic or caused by outside influences, but they are still only mental.

“Agender - Someone who does not identify with any sort of gender identity. This term may also be used by someone who intentionally has no recognizable gender presentation. Some people use similar terms such as “genderless” and “gender neutral”.”
