There are male and female. Some people may be intersex or identify as both or something else which lies between the two. Someone who doesn’t identify with either is genderless which as implied by the word is not a gender. So there are two genders but more “gender identities” or whatever u want to call it. One’s identity is generally based on how they see themselves, so even if somebody thinks there should be two (or three to include intersex) gender identities, that won’t change the fact that there’s going to be a lot of ways people can label themselves in terms of their gender.

Gender wise, there could be loads (its completely different from sex). In indigenous Hawaii, before its colonisation, there was a long standing multiple gender tradition, where the mahu could be a male or female biologically, but decide to inhabit a gender role either opposite theirs, somewhere in between the traditional sex roles, or even both masculine and feminine roles. Instead of being written off as outcasts, as persons of atypical gender identities often are today, these mahu were revered in their social roles as sacred educators of ancient traditions. Ancient Incan culture and Sakalavas of Madagascar showed similar results.

There's only 2 sexes for humans (so far that is... evolution has no end goal). Interestingly enough, according to Stephen Weeks, clam shrimp seem to come in three reproductive varieties: males, who carry two Z chromosomes, and two subgroups of hermaphrodites, one of which is ZW and the other WW. In other words, there are three sexual genotypes created by three possible pairings of sex chromosomes. Ants and other species are similar, showing that sex isn’t as straightforward as we have made it to be.

I'd go with 'Are' next time rather than 'Is'

Philosophically, psychologically and biologically even yes.
Technically there’s more than 2 sexes so to say there’s only 2 genders is just outright ridiculous.

Intersex doesn't count as a third sex. Each intersex individual are unique and are biologically different from each other. Intersex (the condition) has been traced back to a set of specific genetic disorders. Generally speaking, intersex is usually the result of either a specific mutation to the genes that govern sexual development or having multiple copies of sex chromosomes.

Yes... but not in humans unless their chromosomes are ****ed up! Even then... it's not really another gender.

You are wasting your time with these people. It's like debating quantum physics with a goldfish.

I consider each of the different different kinds of intersex people to be different genders so I must say yes, there are more than three genders in my opinion.

Some people in this community are born seemingly as girls and become boys during puberty. They are some sort of naturally transitioning gender:
