    The existence of all these sub-types is complete tosh. You're either male, female or transgender, why complicate it? I'll tell you why, because people love to feel like they don't conform and that they are a victim of societal labelling, when ironically these are the very people that are labelling themselves. It's like "Well, punk is dead, goth is dead... How can I refuse to conform now?...... Oh, I have an idea!".

    Well..people thought that Galileo was insane for thinking that the Earth orbited the Sun and not the other way around and everyone hated him and didn't believe him...but he did turn out to be right in the end. Keep an open mind bro.

    Do you think 'gender fluid' is "real"?

    Personally I think it is non-existent due to you can't be, 'Gender fluid'

    Isn't that simply not conforming to one gender? of course that exists because people feel that way. Thats like saying being gay doesn't exist even though people are attracted to the same sex.

    I get what you're saying BUT, you can't actually just switch from being male to female when you choose
    As someone's said, gender is a social construct: it's what a society decides it means by 'masculine' or 'feminine' or any other gender (some societies have more than two..)

    As with sexuality, this can vary.

    Simples.

    Saying that "gender fluidity" exists basically negates the statement that gays are born gay.

    "Male" and "female" contemporarily refer to social constructs that
    WHAT THE--?

    NO. Male is based on chromosomes and the penis
    Female is based on chromosomes and the vagina

    Some nonsense you come across these days on the interweb I swear

    I really think the whole liberalism drive has gone too far. I'm not sure what the actual solution is, but it's definitely gone too far. Consider this as evidence:



    If you accept the reasoning given to justify identifying as gender fluid or some such, there is no way you can disagree with this woman identifying as a cat. And yet common sense would suggest this is daft. Something has gone wrong somewhere.

    I don't have the slightest clue, but if people being themselves makes them happier and doesn't cause you harm then let them get on with it. Sociologists, psychologists and mental health professionals are almost certainly researching this phenomena, as such I'm going to reserve judgement until we have some solid gender fluidity theories. Besides how likely is it that any of us will meet a gender fluid individual? Most of us have never even met a transgender person, let alone anyone who identifies with tumblr labels.
