    I'm sure the The Times are aware that sex =/= gender.

    You can't choose or change your sex, chromosomes or genes, unless you're a superhero, of course.

    What does everyone think about this?

    meh, don't really understand this whole gender identification stuff, but if you want to identify as a man, women, semi-penised washing machine etc and you're not doing any harm to society it's calm.

    If you're born a male, you can't change to a female "because I said so". It's in your chromosomes unfortunately and you can't change that.

    I don't look at a banana and say that it's now a female human being "because I wanted it to".

    All this gender ******** is beyond sanity imo 'my pronoun is zir!'

    Grow up.

    If you can do that, I can identify as a garden shed and no one can talk ****.

    I personally don't see the hype and think it's childish.

    Absolute rubbish. If you have a penis you're a man. If you have a vagina, you're a woman. If you have something else (0.001% chance), you're intersex. Nothing else exists

    I'm finding it increasingly hard to support the modern Conservatives. First they embrace LGBT rights now they are letting people switch gender at will. The tentacles of cultural Marxism continue to grow.

    The Tories have turned into an utter joke. How DARE they call themselves the Conservative Party, there's nothing conservative about them whatsoever.

    Just defect to UKIP. Modern Tories rightly embrace LGBT rights as greater freedom to the individual. Everyone's entitled to their own views; but you're anti-generational.

    Not sure they are - from the section of the article I can see prior to the registration wall, they seem to be using the two as interchangeable synonyms.

    The problem is we in society are forced to go along with it. Here in Ontario, if you don't refer to somebody by their "preferred" gender identity (no matter how bizarre or made up it might be), you could face a legal penalty.

    In my honest opinion, it's a social fad which may or may not be here to stay. This phenomenon involves predominantly young, socially awkward people who have found a new way to express themselves, and now the establishment is embracing it and pandering to them (and forcing the rest of us to do the same).

    A lot of it is encouraged and amplified by the postmodern, hyper-progressive nonsense being taught to people in liberal arts schools.

    Never really understood why so many people seem to have an issue with this; it doesn't affect you how other people identify, so it's bizarre that so many people are adamantly against it.
