Then goes on to conceive and give birth, whilst still vehemently claiming their right to male identity.
Hypocrisy, stupidity, comedy or what?
basic biology says males produce sperm, females eggs, both together = conception. the end.
basic biology says males have xy chromosomes and females have xx chromosomes
some males do not produce sperm, and some females do not produce eggs.humans with extra chromosomes,
You've touched on an interesting point here. That is, that people who are born intersex are not "normal". Does this mean people who are born that way have bodies that are wrong and we should try to "fix" them? Here's an article that talks about the horrific practice of performing surgeries on intersex children, essentially mutilating their bodies so that they fit in the binary male/female categories.those are abnormalities, birth or other defects so....if you'd like to say trans people are abnormal I would agree with that . . .
do you deny that xx chromosome is a male? you can't change that. again trying to alter physical appearances doesn't make you what you have attempted to emulate, it's fake.
You are free to play whatever role you wish, I don't really care, but it is a role just like an actor pretending to be something or someone they are not. If that makes you happy, good for you, but don't expect or demand I accept the charades.
If you have no y chromosomes, you are a woman. If you have any y chromosomes, you are a man. End of story.
Basic physiology determines gender, and the uncorrupted definition of gender is simply "either of the two sexes, male or female".
And yes, very rarely physiological abnormalities can occur during foetal development.Though, the current social preponderance regarding gender issues, is not about developmental abnormalities but rather about postnatal socio-psychological issues.
Nonetheless, all of this is a secondary discussion which has developed from a simple premise. Whereby the oftentimes hypocritical and nonsensical nature of ultra right wing liberal, so called "transgender" justification, becomes patently obvious.
I would suggest though, that it would be far better if such people quit bombarding the rest with hypocritical and nonsensical justifications and got on with their sexual and bodily preoccupations in private.
And furthermore, the actual person that was referred to in the first place was unequivocally a woman, gender female. As proven by their obvious physiological ability to conceive and give birth.
Does this mean people who are born that way have bodies that are wrong and we should try to "fix" them?
If an intersex person identified as female and asked you to use she/her pronouns, and she had both sets of sex organs, what would you do?
why do chromosomes determine one's gender as male or female?
Gender has some element of performance to it.
It seems to me that in a case like the above, it's acting like the gender that you're assigned at birth that's a charade.
Sorry, the question was about people who are intersex, people born with sex characteristics outside the binary, like someone born with both sets of sex organs. What sex are they born as, and why? Or is it not possible to say?so the "perception" is someone doesn't think they are the sex they were born with, yes that would be an issue/abnormal, try to "fix" them, people can choose to do whatever they want imo, generally, but I'm not paying for it.
can you give me an example of when talking to a person you'd refer to them with a pronoun vs their name? Like the conversation we are having, I can't imagine an instance where I would use a pronoun directed at you, that's just not how language works.
yeah typos happen, I'm not a geneticist but until recently that is how it's been, it is binary, as are the chromosomes, barring abnormalities.
you can "perform" the role w/o surgery, dangerous hormones etc, so if that's something someone wants to do, do it. All animals afaik we've identified as male/female in some species the females is dominant and the leader so roles doesn't really mean much to me, however it is binary as there are only males and females normally. Animals are classified male/female based on physical and genetic characteristics.
Probably because that is the entire role of the 23rd pair of chromosomes.That is like asking "why does DNA determine our species?".
like someone born with both sets of sex organs. What sex are they born as, and why? Or is it not possible to say?
Sure! Pronouns are just an easy way to tell how someone wants to be referred to.
It's worth noting that hormone replacement therapy for trans people is safe and effective, about as safe as medication can get.
have some parts that are considered male and others considered female.
when you ask someone how many genders there are, it would be 2.
from what I remember, there are either hormone levels or some other kind of testing along with physical presentation to determine which one is more, in other words these people are not 50% both sexes, they are more one than the other.
I think that's debatable, but again if someone wants to risk it, that's up to them so long as it doesn't affect me which includes my tax money
shared traits or similar ones are what we use to differentiate and define.cars and trucks have many similarities but are vastly different, I'd say more different than similar.
if xy and xx are not male and female chromosomes what are they? what else can they be?
Brains I think is a whole different discussion as we are talking about the outward, visible physical traits.
That article said you should wait until a kid is three "to communicate their gender identity". I highly doubt a three year old should be making a decision that will affect it for the rest of its life.
All I am seeing is mention of "intersex". If you are trying to argue for a third gender, I would say that a genetic defect shouldn't be considered a normal trait. If someone asked you how many toes a human has, the answer would obviously be 10. If someone asked you how many lungs a person has, the answer would be two. Just because some defects occur in a few people doesn't mean it is a human trait, which gender is. So, when you ask someone how many genders there are, it would be 2.
