    So currently you can only tick male or female when it comes to official documents.
    Obviously, some leftists want more options. Which is ridiculous, genderqueer, bigender and all that is nonsense. But many make the argument that one is male or female and that you either have a penis or a vagina. But that simply isn't true either, we can't ignore that intersex people exist. They can ambiguous genitalia, even XXY chromosomes, there are many intersex conditions. The occurrence is between 1 in 1500 and 1 in 2000. So not common at all. But should we introduce a third option, intersex? It's the only intellectually honest thing to do, in my opinion.

    Discuss.

    Doesn't all that fall under the 'other' option?

    Add intersex and other, it shouldn't even be a controversial issue.

    There's no official other option, plus I'm only advocating for the use of intersex. Everything else is unscientific leftist hogwash.

    Some people just love to nit pick and complain about everything. To make it simple can people just put what gender they think they identify with regardless of what genitalia you have

    It should only be male and female. The tiny minority of people who are intersex can choose whichever they feel closer to, or mention this in a separate question if applicable.

    Having an 'other' option defeats the question. People may as well not answer. And if you have to give an answer, by stating 'other' (when you are actually male or female) you would be withholding necessary information about yourself. It's essentially lying. So what's the point?

    Simple. If we try to fit in all categories, we'll be here forever

    Why not just remove the gender question from forms, I struggle to see why it's relevant to most things

    There are only two genders. Silly little snowflakes who think they're something different are compensating for a lack of personality.

    There aren't actually that many forms/documents that have a question on sex/gender, apart from medical-related stuff for obvious reasons. Most of the time it's not a relevant piece of information, so there's no need to ask.
