    In this day and age we're coming across more and more people who identify their gender as more than the traditional boy/girl.

    I want to see what other people's opinions are on this somewhat sensitive subject.

    My thoughts are that you can be either or, how you choose to identify is how you choose to identify and I would never judge someone by this as this is someone's prerogative, however with all the terminology coming out I think somethings are getting a little bit... silly.

    Heres a few examples

    Absorgender– A gender that changes to conform to the genders of those around you

    Cassgender– Feeling as if the very concept of gender is unimportant to you.

    Mutogender– A gender which is fluid and changes depending on one’s situation.

    Pangender is a non-binary gender defined as including all genders and not being exclusively man or woman

    I believe in the binary boy/girl you may be born a boy and choose to be a girl, that's fine but don't tell me or are a giant born like flaccid box cricket

    What is everyone else's thoughts on the explosion of gender identification

    So, let's take a look at the examples you said.

    Absorgender - I have no idea what that means.

    Cassgender - I guess I would fit that. I don't care what my gender is.

    Mutogender - How is that different from Genderfluid?

    I actually don't care and this kind of threads could lead to flame wars.

    I only care about sexual orientation though.

    I don't really care what someone identifies as, so long as they're not a total cunt about it. What kind of person you are is what I care about.

    Also, I've never even heard of those first three genders you listed off

    Are you living in a fantasy world? Male and female are the only two genders available.

    That's basically exactly what I'm saying, they are the only two genders, people may identify as one or the other but people are delusional identifying as anything but.

    Like I said though I wanted to know others opinions on the subject

    I've been living under a rock, those terms are brand new to me, and way too specific. Just be who you want to be. I also think it's weird to have a discussion about a heavy subject like this on a forum that's proven time and time again that it will devolve to shitposting, trolling and triggering. So, why bother?

    You just haven't been on Tumblr, that's all :rofl2:.

    As for the topic, I couldn't give less of shit. Far as I'm concerned, long as it aint hurting others, people can do what they like.

    "Clownfish, wrasses, moray eels, gobies and other fish species are known to change sex, including reproductive functions. A school of clownfish is always built into a hierarchy with a female fish at the top. When she dies, the most dominant male changes sex and takes her place."
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_change

    "Hermaphroditism:
    ‘True’ hermaphroditism is a genetic condition in which affected individuals have both mature ovarian and testicular tissue."
    - http://www.who.int/genomics/gender/en/index1.html

    Hijras have been around South Asia for 4000+ years:
    "Hijras, who can be eunuchs, intersex or transgender, have been part of South Asia's culture for thousands of years. Eunuchs are celebrated in sacred Hindu texts such as the Mahabharata and the Kama Sutra."
    - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/apr/16/india-third-gender-claims-place-in-law
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijra_(South_Asia)#Gender_and_sexuality

    No one is forcing anything on any of you.
    If you force legitimacy of YOUR standard onto other's who don't agree with the basis
    of Male vs Female then it is you who is forcing denial upon them.
    It would suck for you if you were in the minority and everyone else believed in many genders while you only believe male vs female.
    What if everyone told you that you were wrong?

    If you are a Cisgender Male or Female then congrats.
    (Cisgender (often abbreviated to simply cis) is a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned at birth.)
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisgender
    You've fit into the general "norms" and ideas of Gender
    -- at least for whatever region and culture you come from.

    Not everything in this World we call Life is Black & White as so many people think.
    We don't know everything and not everything needs to be defined to what you define as YOUR normal.

    but to define something as a mental illness just because it transcends your World View is arrogant and ignorant.

    I'm not saying a boy who chooses to be a girl is wrong, or vice versa, trans in my perception is fine as your still identifying as one of the binary genders.

    What I'm saying is when you identify as no gender or a gender that isn't scientifically / traditionally recognised, that's when things get a little our of hand

    You just went 101% Tumblr. The whole fish argument at the top is about sex. According to the wonderful world of the internet, sex != gender. Saying Hijras have been around for thousands of years is no different than saying trans people have been around for thousands of years. Sure, they very well could be, what's the point? Also, what the heck is a eunuch and why is it listed in the Hijra section? Well I googled it and found out that they're castrated dudes. So Asia's ancient books celebrated castrated dudes. That's just another wacky history thing in my book, like how people make human sacrifices to appease gods that may or may not curse their crops for a year. If not everything needs to be defined, as said in the Cisgender section, then why are there more and more genders popping up? They don't need to be defined. And about not forcing your normal, you're really forcing your normal on this thread.

    Biologically, there's only 2 genders (3rd gender exists but is a mutation).
    So, biologically, you're either male or female.

    Personally, be whatever you want just don't be an anus and say "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" or "I sexually identify as dog poopoo" or something stupid like that.
