    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?

    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.
