In our current world of invented reality, there are different lists of genders that are being passed around. The one below shows New York City’s list of 31 genders . Facebook in United States recently published 51, and later 54, different genders. Of course, you could always select other if none of those work for you. And in the UK, there are 71 different genders.
Male and female genders are easy to understand. However, it could be listed as cis male and cis female. Now, although I am male, I have never referred to myself as a “cis male”. This is someone else’s term for me. I call myself a male. Do I get to sue someone who refers to me in a way that I don’t consider proper? Almost all of the remaining genders are some version of being between male and female. Come on. We really can’t reduce this to a smaller number?
Am I supposed to have a different gender pronoun for each of these? And why am I restricted to those gender pronouns? Why can’t I select my own? If I am gender fluid, can’t I just change my gender pronoun at will?
This is all silliness . It defies logic, yet we are supposed to take this with other seriousness. Whenever facing someone who believes in this, they cannot understand how anyone could ever ask differently. They find it unconscionable to believe there’s just a male and a female. It is as if we have been using these different genders throughout history, and that it is only now that we are overcoming these prejudices. It is as if, in their own lives, they have always used these many gender references and never referred to simply male and female.
And how do we know that we are done identifying genders? How do we know that the people selecting these lists aren’t prejudiced in some way so that they omit genders that they are unaware of? There are some 20 additional genders in UK Facebook that are not shown in the US Facebook. Am I being enlightened or bigoted when I only use the 31 different gender references in the New York City list?
There are no real answers to this because it is all made up. Obviously, there are people who are confused about their gender and/or their sex, but they don’t have to hoist all of that on the rest of us.
If this madness continues, I want to select “me” as my gender pronoun. It will confuse the heck out of everybody , because they won’t know if they’re referring to myself or not.
