Here Are the 31 Gender Identities New York City Recognizes
It's to prevent lawsuits.
I guess hermaphrodites don't count anymore......
Why? Does it hurt anyone to just recognize that some people are different even if you don't understand it?
It seems silly, but while it doesn't mean anything to me, it does to that androgynous gender queer. Again, it isn't something I understand, but I understand less why some people get offended by it.
Can anybody find the list of 31 genders on the state page? Because it keeps coming up as Page Not Found when I chick the link in his article.
Until I can see that, i'm calling this article B.S.
Two-Spirit is my favorite. Can I be a Two-Spirit for Halloween? Or is that offensive to Two-Spirits?
You're Canadian. You're supposed to be more progressive and tolerant than us, not less.
I completely agree.
That said, when I'm filling out life insurance paperwork for clients and I have to put a gender for rating purposes, I could see myself getting annoyed if someone tells me they identify as a fig tree. Ok person... do you have a d**k or no?
That made me literally laugh out loud.
What if the person has both?
One flavor for every day of the month.
Does Jamie Lee Curtis know that?
There is a third s e x? I don't remember learning about that in Health class.
Because it's biology, not choice.
So because "biology," you're offended that people call themselves something weird? That's really not rational.
Because it's totally bizarre.
How did we get to this ? Seriously... Isn't it mental illness... But guess that's not allowed to say.
People can do what they want though. It isn't my business.
Lol I've been exposed to stuff like this up here so yeah https://www.thestar.com/news/insight/2013/12/22/is_pedophilia_a_s e xual_orientation.html
I s e xually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I'm an idiot but I don't care, I'm beautiful. I'm having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me "Apache" and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can't accept me you're a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.
I understand the difference between gender and s e x. What I don't get is the need to self identify like you are announcing what sports team your root for.
I call BS. Two of those are just acronyms for other names in the list. So really it's only 29 identities if we want to get technical.
is there any doubt...
Separate names with a comma.
