Whether binary or a spectrum, innate or a construct, or soon to be irrelevant, gender is one of the most divisive questions on the world's lips. So which is it?
Yes, far more than two.
Gender expression is not exclusively male and female. There are many forms that reside on a spectrum. This spectrum offers tremendous freedom to transgender persons as well as to people born intersex.
Gender is a spectrum
Gender is not tied to biological sex, but rather is socially constructed and a form of personal expression.
Intersex individuals need alternatives
Persons born with partial or fully formed genitalia of both sexes fit neither here nor there in the gender binary. New classifications and pronouns will help them thrive.
No, gender is binary.
While it can be socially influenced, gender has been shown to be biologically compelled. Even when raised the opposite sex, an individual will still find the urge to behave in line with their born gender. Transition surgeries and therapies are meant to bridge gender incongruity, but result in higher suicidality.
True reassignment is impossible, treatments offer no relief.
Transition surgeries and hormone therapies have not offered relief to most patients. In fact, studies have found that the risk of suicide and suicidal behavior is greatly increased post-surgery. Little is done to assess the efficacy of long-term gender-affirmative counseling.
Trans men are and will always be men
Men remain men, regardless of transition surgeries or treatments of any kind. To give them rights to traditionally women-only spaces endangers biological women and girls.
The social obsession with reassignment is hurting youths
The constant discussion of gender reassignment across society is actively damaging young people.
The story of the bible explains God's design when mankind was born as there being only man and woman. The stories that follow explain too that those confused about their identity have a challenge to overcome in life, as all do. But it can be overcome.
We should strive for a genderless world
Gender and gender roles in all capacities are a narrow perspective of the human experience that prevents people from reaching their full potential in life.
Society will ultimately progress to a point where gender is rendered moot and this will come about through the erosion of gender roles.
Gender is not the point
The trans movement is being weaponized by radical activists with a political and social agenda. Gender and identity are secondary to the end goal of coercing conformity and controlling free speech.
Requiring gender pronouns is an affront to free speech
The trans movement is being co-opted by radical activists with a political and social agenda.
