I can in theory identify as anything I please, but does that mean I am that something? Absolutely not. Prove me wrong.

Eh, identity and your sense of self is what you are. For a parallel - nationality, I was born in England to Scottish parents, if Scotland had gone independent I'd almost certainly by entitled to dual nationality: but in terms of who I am - I'm a Scot; and except when I'm bantering with English friends about how **** youse are at football, no-one bats an eyelid - my national identity is who I am, that's not controversial. Why should it be with gender, which could be considered as your neurological sex?

Yes we have already defeated the infinite gender army my emperor. there's nothing left but the corpses of them, their families and their rainbow ponies. I suggest we move on with our expedition.

No reason to revive a dead issue, best way is to not give the importance and attention it needs my friend.

I don't think a hairy bearded muscular man would ever convince someone he identifies as a woman.

There is only male or female. You can genuinely have a male trapped in a female's body and vice versa but anything other than that is a mental disorder. See a psychiatrist!

You can label yourself in any way, and identify yourself as anything, you like, but you don't get to mandate how everyone else labels or identifies you. You don't get to dictate how other people use words to describe reality.

Apagender: a feeling of apathy towards ones gender which leads to them not looking any further into it

I'll take it!

You'd think they'd be better at using pronouns -- "ones gender which leads to them". Be consistent, amateurs.

Very true but I would add that you can identify as anything but that doesn't mean it's a gender. A gender is something that society has decided and as of now that means either male or female.

Many people fail to see that "gender" and "gender identity" are literally just ideas that have no scientific based, they are absolutely useless and Gender has basically just become another word for personallity as there are so many stupid genders.

It gets even more stupid and absurd when they use words like "male and female" words that relate to biology and claim that a "man" can become a "woman", so technically a transgender person who thinks they are a man is a female (sex) and a male (new use of biology) it makes no sense and deserves little thought. you may act as manly or as womanly as you like but you will NEVER change your sex or "gender"

If you are born male, you will forever be a Mr, have an M in your passport, and be legally and medically a man and a male body. You can dress up as a woman, ask everyone to call you a female name, but what doesn't change is your sex.

:lolwut: Titles actually have no legal standing. As far as I recall, a man could put down Mrs as his title for a passport application with no evidence required and no issues would arise. An increasing number of more 'official' organisations (e.g. banks) allow you to choose gender neutral titles these days, and I don't recall sites such as Amazon ever asking for proof of title either. This is honestly one of the easiest things to change.

have an M in your passport
:nah: Getting a gender recognition certificate allows you to change that (though the fact that it's referred to as 'Sex' on the passport itself and 'Gender' in most of the gov.uk information doesn't make that clear, I'll admit)

Legally, a GRC and new birth certificate is enough here in the UK.
