Okay how it is not biologically defined then?
@JDavid25I think Quack meant “gender,” but I was referring to “sex,” which is XY or XX. From my understanding, gender and sex are seen as two different things.
@JDavid25 How is it? Chromosome types? Not all species uses X and Y chromosomes at all, and some switch it up. Gestation? Not applicable for all species and for some the male gestates the babies. How about sperm or egg production? The lines can also get really fuzzy there too. But let’s just focus on humans as that seems to be all anyone cares about. Most people will agree that an adult human with testacies, a prostate, a penis and high levels of testosterone and XY chromosome pair is a male. Right? Similarly an adult with ovaries, a uterus, a vulva, breasts, and high levels of estrogen and XX chromosome pair is a female. Nice and easy, two simple categories that everyone fits into… except they don’t. How about a person born with low levels of testosterone, a vulva, and testicles? Are they male or female? How about a person born with XYY chromosome triplet? Or one with an XY pair, with a fully functional female reproductive system and higher levels of testosterone?Yes, these are all real things. Feel free to look them up if you actually care that much. The point is that people don’t fit into nice neat little categories like we want them to.
Oh no, it still isn’t that simple even if you just focus on the chromosomes.
@QuackthuluYes, but are you sure you’re not just using anomaly cases to prove a general biological rule? I’m sure there are cases that make it ambiguous or difficult to determine someone’s sex but I’m also sure these are extremely rare. 99% of the time, everyone has a clearly defined biological sex no matter what they look like. Example: Only women can become pregnant, not men. Again, I’m sure there’s some phenomenally rare cases where this is somehow not true. Now GENDER is quite different than sex. You can be biologically male, but that’s the extent of your “maleness.” Everything else about you is female. Everything.
Oh, those are just the extreme cases, and I’m not sure I wouldn’t call 1:1000 that much of an anomaly. The point is that sex is not a black and white issue. There is a spectrum. There are people with a vulva who produce sperm, there people born with a penis and a uterus. Even so would a person with XX chromosomes a female reproductive system but narrow hips no breasts, and excessive body hair still be considered as much of a female as one with bit ol titties thicc hips and silky smooth skin? How about someone born with an XY pair a functional male reproductive system, a no body hair and “childbearing” hips? Are they still a man?Point is there exists a very really, biological spectrum that people tend to ignore because apparently nearly 8,000,000 people living in the world today aren’t enough to make it anything other than just an “anomaly”
Well, I guess.You are the biology expert lol.
Me and you are the only ones who said no😂 @Quackthulu
I have two answers, what?
Yeah, i accidentally made a clone or duplicate of this question, which subsequently got deleted. I have no idea how I made a duplicate but the system told me I did
I swear this site is glitchy as hell sometimes

Nah, I accidentally duplicated it so they deleted the duplicate lol. It was my mistake.
LOL.. Aw okay true enough..
What if a man asked you to call him “daddy” because he somehow identifies as that? Lmao
Well I guess that might make me a little uncomfortable.But sure if that will make them happy 😂
I did not expectYou to say yes to that request lol.
But that word just makes me uncomfortable in general 😂 it has been so extremely sexualised.
For me, I don’t mind calling someone what they want within REASON. Otherwise, it just gets a little insane and goofy
what makes a professional setting different? Why would you respect their request in a business environ but not outside that?
@Walrus_au because i dont support their mental illness. Nuff said. No need to explain myself
Im not gonna get fired for disrespecting a customer in the workplace
listen to your language, even you acknowledge that it is disrespectful.Even if we assume your assumption of mental illness stands up to scrutiny (it doesn't) then that translates to I'll play nice and take your money, but if I see you as ill I am going to shit on you when my shift is over.
@Walrus_au i wouldn't shit on them but if they ask me outside of work, then it is what it is. I just dont understand why you come asking me? I proudly believe what i believe. You should Ask the many “Men” below who said the same shit as me if not worse.
Metaphorically "shit on them"what difference does it actually make to you what they prefer to be recognised as?I'm just trying to understand, seems like two very different standards.As to why not ask the asshats promoting violence and shit-headedness. I have asked their kind before, I know what answer I would get.
@Walrus_au the difference it makes is that they would be personally asking me to support their way of thinking (based off this question)... so no, i won't feed them by calling them what they “think” they are. If anything i’d say “they” like i always do (even at work). Its more respectful then me saying “it”.
If say a Mary Johnson gets married to a Bill Smith. And I run into her later, she asks me to call her mrs smith. How is that different? I'd be disrespectful to call her Ms or Mrs Johnson at that point. It is still her name, she still owns it, but she wishes to be known by smith.Rudolf William Johannson wants to be called Billy as a short form of his middle nameTo ignore that I would be disrespectful of his wishesAnd in a workplace, you are willing to extend them the respect and courtesy of refering to them as they ask, but not elsewhere? How can you argue that that is not disrespecting them?
@Walrus_au if a gay couple marry and one dude wants to be the mom/wife... nah... if they ask me, ima refer to both as “dad/husband”. The point is, dont ask and i won't tell. They shouldn't expect respect and understanding from people who dont respect/understand their delusions. So im not disrespecting them. Im standing for what i believe. Dont ask and i won't tell. Hell, they’d be disrespecting me for begging me to lean their way. We should just all go our separate ways
So, to what extent would you take this? If someone identified as a dragon, would you refer to them as “dragon?” Pretend that they’re actually serious about being called dragon
If it makes them happy then why wouldn’t I...
So, if I told you to call me “daddy” because I identify as that then would you call me as such?
I don’t talk to you literally at all but sure 🤷♀️ If it makes you happy.
