People can't figure out if your born with a penis your a male. If your born with a vagina your a woman.

++ I agree with this statement


Needless oversimplification.

People can be born intersex- meaning a bunch of different things that could concern their genitals upon arrival not being what you would probably consider 'standard', or it could concern their chromosomes, or it could concern something else entirely different. It's estimated that around 1.7% of human births are intersex, so it's not like it's incredibly unique cases either.

Literally just one example of how this whole thing is just so much more complicated than genitals.


A bunch of different things... Like?

1.7%, really...?

"Klinefelter syndrome is one of the most common chromosomal disorders, occurring in 1:500 to 1:1000 live male births."

The most common problem is this and its 1:500 as a minimum plus most have it and most are born with the proper number of genitalia (1).

When I said 1.7% of all human births, which actually includes the dead ones. Hehehe. If I'm going to skew a statistic, like, I'm gonna know I'm doing it. That being said, the number of births with genitalia different from standard male or female actually is 1 in 100, though I suppose not common so non-standard that experts are called in.

Anyway, that's just my sentence structure that you're griping about. It was meant to be read as such:

A bunch of things that could concern either/or
a) presentation genitalia
b) their chromosomes

The number of variances between both a as well as b, I believe, make up the academic term ;a bunch of things'.

If it is not my sentence structure you are griping about, literally very page from the site you quoted just there has a list of all those 'bunches of things' I referred to.


_-Do not take my quotes out of context with your science


But then what will I do for fun?

A lot of people trying to reaffirm the validity of false "third, fourth, or fifth genders" I guess?

Why have there been so many threads based entirely around genders?


Because many people wrestle with gender, which has only recently - in the wake of Caitlyn Jenner - become something you can talk about outside of Tumblr.

Boredom probably much of it. A good controversy and fueling tension because they have got nothing better to do.

Because people are sick and tired of putting up with backward thinking for so many years. There's an end to everything. Now we're finally able to talk about this kind of stuff and don't have to fear that we're going to get crucified for being heretics.

If you're really hurting for something else to talk about, here it is:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-951871/racial-whitewashing-versus-representational-self-erasure

However, it kind of requires some reading.

1, I've got nothing but mad respect for you.
2. That is a metric fuckton of information and angles to digest.

I don't want to comment on it until I have something of value, but thank you so much for giving me something to think about. Factory jobs can be hard if you run out ofshit to think about.

Fair point, at the time I posed this the whole first 3 pages of GD was why does X gender do Y? Few feminist/anti-feminists threads here and there. It's going to be upon us again. Summer is here.
