Sex and gender

Post by Pogue » Thu Feb 06, 2020 11:28 pm

I was having a rational conversation with a family member the other day and I discovered that gender and sex are essentially different(looked it up in the dictionary). Sex has to do with your biological parts and gender is to with what sex you identify with from an environmental cultural perspective. I started wondering about some issues after Facebook started bombarding me with Shapiro and knowles videos, pretty annoying but thought provoking. I’ve been wondering about the roles of genes vs environment in determining gender dysphoria or homosexuality. Has there been comclusive studies on any of this stuff?

There's lots of stuff 'out there' on this issue, all but a mere Ask Jeeves search away. Can you articulate any particular interest or idea you have about this subject?

I'd assume (could be my undoing right there...) that biological sex has a reasonable impact on gender identification. I don't have any evidence to support this. It's just like a feeling, man.

Shapiro was talking about how he thought gender dysphoria was a mental illness.Im not sure if I agree with that or not. Does It make It an illness it’s causing a problem? Does it have to be biologically rooted to be an illness? Would Ben Shapiro call homosexuality an illness too?

Ben Shapiro?
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

I'm sure he'd call homosexuality an illness as well. Probably even more likely given that he is almost certainly in the closet.

So much has been written about it but today gender is a very flexible term with many people realising they have the wrong physical body. In plenty of civilised countries help and understanding is readily available.
