    Is two genders enough? why stop at male or female, if as humans our instinctive aim is survival? What does everyone think?

    What exactly would we need these other genders for?
    Our purpose originally I'd have thought was to survive and to breed, we had males to provide the sperm and the female to create the baby what would other genders have done?

    I think getting laid would be a complicated procedure if there were more than 2 genders. Why do we need more than 2 genders to increase our chances of survival?

    Since when has transsexual been one gender? Surely a transsexual would identify themselves as whatever gender is they have/want to become.

    The 2 gender system works relatively well at the moment - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    true they would identify themselves as that gender but they would genetically still be the other gender..... I dont know, i'll let that one go.
    But the hermaphrodite one is still applicable.
