    Obviously there are only 2 genders... but some people claim they don't feel they belong to a gender, I think it's called non binary gender. I remember because in the TV show Billions one of the actors identifies herself both in the show and in real life as having a non binary gender.

    There is this movement asserting that gender is a social construct and exists as a spectrum.

    On the question of non-binary individuals, the argument is that you can believe that you aren't either gender, however I can reject that claim, arguing that gender is binary

    There's 2 genders . Gender isn't a social construct. Science 101 xy chromosome for a male and xx for a female . It's the social justice warrior movement who feel a slight bit of anxiety and say they don't feel their a male or female

    I fail to see how identifying as neither/either/both or other harms anyone else.

    I think its not to do with whether they should or shouldn't be able to do it, I think there is consensus that in a free society, people should have the liberty to do what they want. Its more to do with others forcing them to accept their beliefs, for example, in Canada if you refuse to use someone's gender pronouns you would be in violation of their human rights code.

    Scientifically, as described above, then yeah. But there are many people out there who are scientifically/technically/biologically (however you want to word it) male or female, but would identify themselves in a different way ! Just because a male is (technically) a male, does not mean they will live their life as this ! U dig

    While I think refusing to use someone preferred gender pronouns is a bit rude and disrespectful (assuming they've let you know what their preference is, of course), I do believe people should have the freedom to do so.
