Do you think there are more than two genders?
There are only 2 genders.
Are gender and sex different things?
Yes, but gender is determined by sex.
Is gender a scale?
If you mean a spectrum, no. And no, a real scientist will not say it is. Medical science and biologists all say there are only 2 genders and that you can’t switch between them.
The idea that there’s more than two is not founded in hard science. It’s more psychological, gender is in your head, indeed, but it is still biological.
Are all genders recognised?
Yes, all two of them.
What age do you think people can tell they are a different gender to their sex? Is there a thing as being too young to know?
People are born with the mental condition known as gender dysphoria, so they could feel wrong and know why at any early age. That just depends on the individual.
Can people change their gender more than once?
You can’t change your gender at all, technically, but it is cosmetic, and you can make yourself look different and take hormones to help your brain relax and stop fighting yourself. You can revert, though and make yourself look like the other gender again. It’s all pretty damaging, though, sometimes, so be careful! T.T
What’s your opinion on gender fluidity and non-binary?
Well, these things don’t technically exist, but if that’s what you want to call yourself, that’s your business, I guess, but if you claim to be these things and you don’t have gender dysphoria, or you claim to be trans without dysphoria, that is extremely rude and a huge disservice with people that actually have the condition. You shouldn’t make a mental condition a trend, and that’s why some of these people have gotten the label “transtrender”. People with gender dysphoria are/have suffered greatly. You don’t fucking want gender dysphoria.
It upsets me greatly because I, myself, have mental problems/illnesses/conditions. However, some people with gender dysphoria do feel more comfortable calling themselves these things, and if that helps them, it makes me happy for them and I really hope it helps them.
Overall, I’d like to find a cure for gender dysphoria that doesn’t involve having extremely damaging surgery. It can make you infertile, some people still experience dysphoria even after transitioning, some people grow out of it and regret it…the whole thing is just really sad. I wouldn’t wish gender dysphoria on anyone T.T
