Gender Studies and Math

However, Facebook seems to disagree as evidenced in this ABC News piece from 2014:

Here’s a List of 58 Gender Options for Facebook Users

by Russell Goldman February 13, 2014

Facebook introduced dozens of options for users to identify their gender today – and although the social media giant said it would not be releasing a comprehensive list, ABC News has found at least 58 so far.

Previously, users had to identify themselves as male or female. They were also given the option of not answering or keeping their gender private.

User’s can now select a “custom” gender option.

“There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,” Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison told the Associated Press. Harrison, who worked on the project, is in the process of gender transition, from male to female.

Facebook will also allow users to select between three pronouns: “him,” “her” or “their.”

The following are the 58 gender options identified by ABC News:

Agender
Androgyne
Androgynous
Bigender
Cis
Cisgender

    I heard there was infighting among some of these “identities” because, after all, there are now so many more to scream for their “rights” and the definitions interlap and make things confusing. Ridiculous. SO tired of screamers. If I wanted that, I’d listen to used car commercials.

    There are only two genders…period.

    As someone who has been around awhile, I can say that it wasn’t that long ago that even the most “learned” in the psychological/psychiatric field were together in declaring that anyone who professed to be any sex/gender other than what their birth physical “plumbing” dictated was mentally ill. Those experts have been figuratively beaten into submission due to our loss of freedom of speech (and thinking). In reality, nothing has changed…….they’re mentally ill.

      Maybe, Bill, but I prefer to utilize the old saying, “live and let live”. Those same psychologists used to call PMS a “mental illness”. Times, and our understanding, changes as we learn more. When we default to criticism and non-acceptance, we lose the opportunity of learning and consensus. My position does NOT mean that I want to let your son in the girls bathroom at school though! Leave it to liberals to carry this whole thing to absurdity.

        Thanks Flash. Trust me, as someone who was married to a “lady” who had a week of severe PMS (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)) which does involve psychological symptoms……..I’ll stand by my original comment.
        However, using “Nature” as a baseline from which all things are judged and a significant part of that baseline is the necessity of opposite sex attraction to promote the perpetuation of the species, simple logic dictates that same sex attraction is a violation of nature’s principles. In other words, “unnatural.” By extension, while an individual may think he/she/it may think they are of a sex that is not matched by their birth plumbing is, likewise, unnatural. Not to be shunned or maligned but certainly not to be recognized/accepted as “normal.”
