    This is what I've been told
    There only two sexes (Female and male).
    gender is on a spectrum so definitely more than 2.

    This is what i believe
    There are only 2 sexes
    there are only 2 genders

    But if someone tells me they're [insert gender] i will respect it, call them by their 'prefered pronouns' and move on. People can believe what they want as long as no one is harmed and it's kinda stupid to debate about how someone identifys themselves as its personal.

    None, or ~7 billion.

    There are two biological sexes, though.

    Although I disagree with you in terms of the number of genders as not everyone is male of female some people are non binary I’m glad to see that you agree that someone’s identity doesn’t harm you and that you would use someone’s pronouns.
    It’s a nice change from some people online and in the real world.

    Two. Male, or female - you can also be transgender which is a combination of these two.

    Two. Male and Female, any more is insanity or a medical anomaly, you can pretend to be whatever you want but I do not have to conform to your insanity.
