I believe that there is an infinite number of genders. Although bio-psychology has proven there to be 112 different genders.

P.S. plz search up the differences between:’sex,sexuality, sexual orientation and gender before posting on this thread


P.P.S.

I consider people as being XY, XX, or some other combination of chromosomes personally, so whatever the number of combinations known to science is is how many genders I consider there to be. I don't see the value in the notion of a gender being something someone thinks they are, when the nature of that something is inherently going to be different by varying degrees to every person. Not when the way of looking at gender that I mentioned exists. I'm sure there is a single word thats definition is the very idea I tried communicating two sentences ago that is eluding me, but hopefully what I said could still be understood.
XX and XY are for sex not gender. They control the biological differences between the two sexes. E.g. levels of of specific hormones; physical structure of body (reproductive, development organs; etc) whereas gender is all mental. There are two sexes and 112 genders. If you can find 112 different possible structures using only X and Y chromosomes, in that case you can be remembered as the greatest bio-chemist, physicist and mathematician in history. But I don’t think you will get very far.

P.S. I’m a nerd who’s 1.2 and 16 years old. I feel your awkward shortness bro👌🏾

Evidence?

Gender is just some made up idea now used to mean personality, used by the immoral left to further the destruction of normality and society

Gender isn't something that is decided by an individual, it is defined by society. Some societies do in fact have three or more genders, but most societies including ours have only two.

So while I respect your right to have that belief I have no respect for the belief itself.

Agreed, this is always the same. At some point some idiot will go on about being an Apache helicopter and in the end nobody on this debate ever gets a point across to anyone else because no one's willing to listen or leave people to get on with their lives. They will always just say gender is a personality when it isn't.... It is quite a boring debate.

There are two sexes. There are two main genders.

The rest is down to the individual traits on the person.

Explain how society defines your gender. Last I checked society didn’t decide I was a heterosexual male. I turned out to be that way as I developed

Yes. This is because of the primal instincts we have had humans with a main objective to reproduce and not become extinct. Some people just have stronger brains to override this idea and be who they want to be. However being heterosexual is your sexual orientation

Gender is who or what you think you are

So gender is subjective based on your own personal belief of what you are? Sorry to say but I doubt that.

Sure happy to explain for you:

Your gender is what you identify as. But society has defined what you can identify as. Therefore society doesn't decide what gender you are, but it does define what gender is as I said in my previous post.


Your gender isn't heterosexual male. If you identify as male then that would be your gender but being heterosexual is your sexuality and is nothing to do with gender.

The thing you're referring to as 'gender' is just your personality. There is no such thing as gender, just sex.

That’s fine but I don’t believe gender is subjective to what a person decides they are. It’s highly influenced by biological sex. Of which people are either male or female with some rare abnormal cases.

Agreed.

Some people on TSR have a bizarre fixation with
gender.

Meanwhile the vast majority of people will go about their day with giving two ***** about the subject.
