Skip to comments.Gender and Sex: They Are NOT Interchangeable - Don't Allow Leftists to Define Terms

Your genitals determine your biological SEX -- which is male or female. What determines gender [masculine, feminine, neutral] is culture. So in some cultures, a skirt is feminine while in others it is masculine.
#YouMightBeALiberal if the Divine was fallible in making you, but you are infallible in what you think you should be.
Sex is biological and gender is cultural. There is no such thing, for example, as "neutral sex" -- even if you get your male junk cut off. Then you are an emasculated male.
The Left tries to make them interchangeable to so they can blur the lines between Nature and culture. And their ultimate purpose in doing so is to erode our way of life. If Nature is not obeyed, we perish.
"...sex and gender have always meant the same thing."
No, they have not. No, they do not -- and I will not concede that to the Left any more than I would that an AR-15 is an assault weapon.
Gender can be changed. One can be masculine or feminine according to a given culture -- regardless of what is between a person's legs. A man can be considered effeminate with regard to mannerisms and dress.
A man cannot be female -- even if a physician violates his/her Hippocratic Oath by removing male genitalia, then replacing it with a grotesque facsimile of a vagina. Period.
But look at what the Left does when someone with male genitalia insists upon being called 'she' wants to relieve himself next to your 8-year-old niece and you object. You are declared "____-phobic" which means that if you disagree with their twisted cultural ideology, you are, by definition, mentally ill.
I call bullshit and will not let the subjectivist ['our own mental activity is the only unquestionable fact of our experience'] Left define the terms.
Agree 100% ~ and you will be demonized by the leftists, simply because you have greater levels of intellect, common sense, reason, and logic than they do!
Sex is a yes or no question. Gender sounds more like, don’t know and the prospects aren’t great.
After having posted there for almost 8 years I was recently banned,for life,from the bulletin boards of The Guardian (a Marxist British newspaper) for having pointed out in a post that there are only two genders.
There are two sexes: XX and XY - female and male.
(Almost*) Everything else is varying flavors and degrees of mental illness.
*There is a vanishingly small minority of people who have physical and genetic issues - hermaphrodites, etc. They are literally “one in a million.”
How often do you post about genitals on Facebook?
Indeed, what they have done is to change the definition of gender to fit their own, fluid world.
So you post a lot about genitals on Facebook?
I strongly reject any efforts - whether from left or right - to make a distinction between sex and gender. It’s just wordplay.
Are we reduced to asking “innie or outie”, or would even that be too triggering? Some people are designed to bear children, and others aren’t. There should be words available to distinguish them. It’s not a matter decided by personal perspective or even by surgery, and it has inescapable social and medical relevance, among other important things.
The definition should be pee pees and hoo hoos and that is what should be on the bathroom door.
The science is settled, a penis in a dress is not dangerous. /s
Sex and gender are both binary. Male and female, masculine and feminine. It is feminine to wear a dress regardless of culture. XX chromosomes is a woman.
The left tries to make them interchangeable because the ideal of the left is to reduce the serf class and the bourgeoisie to interchangeable and relatively mindless parts to support leftist ruling Class.
Wrong. Gender is a linguistic phenomenon for assigning class, in most languages masculine, feminine or neutral. Assignation can be apparently random but often corresponds to sex appropriate characterstics of the nouns classed. Individuals do not have gender apart from the gender assigned to the whole class of individuals. Women, being of the feminine gender in English no matter what they choose to call themselves. In French the noun “feminin” is masculine thus “le feminin.”
“Gender” is magic fairy dust that makes up down and black white.
Never accept that term.
Gender is a noun. Masculine and Feminine are adjectives that describe a noun. A masculine female's gender is still female. A masculine watch is neutral.
Sex and gender are NOT the same thing. This is how the left has gamed this issue by misapplying terms.
Nouns and adjectives have gender. People have sex.
