The idea that gender is anything more than being male or female was thought up in the late 60's by a college professor. It may have even been in the 70's. This idea wasn't really backed by anyone until the mid to late 90's and now it is being forced as a norm. Masculine characteristics can be seen in women just like feminine ones can be seen in men. Some women love sports, getting dirty, and some even enjoy fighting (MMA is an example) just like some men are more about self-love and care, hate being outdoors, and do not enjoy sports at all. Gender is still male or female, it isn't a true identity for anyone. I think the reason this got picked up in the 90's is that people generally felt that corporations were pandering to boys and girls, men and women in one regard and it felt forced.DuluthAtheist wrote: ↑Sat Feb 09, 2019 12:11 pmGender does not equal sex.
I know gay men who aren't drawn to feminine qualities. I know lesbian women who aren't drawn to masculine qualities.
I think before you make a hard line decision upon this, you might want to branch out a little more on your knowledge of what 'gender' means. The two words, gender and sex, can be used synonymously, but aren't when describing what gender a person is and what their sex is.
Regardless, why would it matter how someone defines themselves? I think the greater point is that a person is free to define themselves however, so long as they are a good person. It really doesn't matter what their gender is, or how they describe their gender, so long as they are a good person.
