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
