Have an opinion?
What if it simply stopped referring to them as "genders" and simply referred to them as "sex"? Then there would be no need gor debate.
Male and female created he him ! Male and female created he them ! God made two sexes ! Male and female and that is all he did and no other things exist but male and female ! Thanks
Sure, but a lot of trans people prefer identifying as their preferred gender rather than being lumped together in their own separate gender
I meant more like nonbinary
Nonbinary is like not identifying with any gender. There are people who identify as other genders yet, but I am not exactly sure what they are
As a web developer, I would need to know how many genders there are and all their names to change/update a website like this. How many genders are there?
@ecfresh I am not really qualified to teach this. It's great you are trying to be more inclusive, but honestly I don't know enough to say, maybe try doing some research
@dublin_sexyeyes0 wow thanks for invalidating people's actual identities 🙄🙄
@Asker I have done research and can’t find a definitive number of genders. The best info I have found is because gender has become a spectrum and new descriptions are being created their are an infinite number of genders and names/labels. This is problematic for a web developer as it becomes challenging to update code when we cannot define the number of genders. For now I would recommend we leave the number at 2 (male and female) as they represent over 98% of the worldwide population and if in the future another gender crosses the 25% barrier we can then add that to our websites and legal forms.
@ecfresh I'm not a web developer, but your solution sounds good
There's 2 genders.The other stuff are subdivisons.Like colors. You have lots of greens and blues, but they are 2 colors.
@ecfresh It's no more "problematic" than having a list of car makes. You don't hard-code it, you populate it from a table. Remind me not to hire you...
Ha ha, no worries, already have a job. I have 15+ years of database experience. The difference is you have the meta data available to populate the table of car makes. You can build the GUI admin interface to maintain that list as a car model gets added or removed annually.However the current gender discussion is trending towards the conclusion of it being a spectrum where literally millions of genders will be possible. Not efficient to prepopulate a db table with millions of gender descriptions, better to just create a fill in the blank 1024 char limit text field. You can see how going from a radio button male/female solution to a dynamic text field complicates other logic in the application can’t you?Still waiting on a definitive answer to my simple question: how many genders are there?
No one expects millions of genders. 15 years oooh
Not guna vote cause there's no I don't care option.Great question tho.
No Madam they shouldn't they are only two genders in the world that's man and woman
Why should this site be corrupted? If 'THEY' want their own site: they can make one.
No. you're either physically male, female or hermaphrodite
No, because I don't think that other genders exist
Only 2 genders, only 2 choices, simple as that lol
Both bottom options.
There’s no other gender. Only male and female
No. There's 2 genders.
How many genders are there?
I don’t think that’s necessary lol
DNA determines gender. There are 2. Male and female.
Yes, so I know which people to avoid. jkjk
Like what? Mentally ill?
Sure, it doesn't make a difference to me. It'd open the website to more people, I suppose.
