    Uhm, that's close, but not quite there. Restating what I posted earlier: The genderfluid argument is that gender is a spectrum, not a binary. An individual's gender is indeed fixed on the spectrum - further it is not a choice and not subject to change. What is a choice and subject to change is which of the two traditional genders - if either - the individual wishes to identify with.

    My younger brother is transgendered (and quite open about it so no, I'm not outing him) so I've been exposed to a lot of literature and arguments about this subject. I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I'm willing to wager it hits closer to home for me than for most of you.

    The people I've met who use genderfluid to describe themselves just feel that neither male nor female describes them at all, yet find themselves at a loss for any better term.

    I'm not sure if exploding the number of gender descriptors is the correct course of action. Some of the descriptors are just personality types, and some "genders" are really societal attitudes about those personality types. As to whether there's a genetic component - well I am mildly effeminate in some behaviors, but unlike by brother I'm not uncomfortable in my own skin. If someone put the girdle of masculinity/femininity on me though I honestly don't think it would bother me in the slightest - I'd just go on doing what I've always done. I do wonder if I'm not alone in this - but no one has ever done a study of the siblings of transgendered persons.

    One thing it has done is light one of the brighter coal fires on my hatred of all things Republican. The bathroom bills disgust me and fruther I know they put transgenders in an untenable situation. My brother has a beard - he'd get mobbed if he went into a women's restroom. So where the fuck is he supposed to go? The reverse is also often true. It just, disgusts me on a level hard to describe.

    Ahhh, how cute, someone has missed the entire 'gender fluid' nonsense explosion in the last two years.

    Learn to comprehend: "...nonsense explosion in the last two years".


    IE, in the last two years (actually a bit more, call it four when it began, but the stupid really piled up about two years ago) the whole "My gender is whatever I want whenever I want" bs infested the gender fluid movement.

    Note, this, Gender Fluid Master List, is not a joke Tumblr... despite how hilariously cringey it might be.

    The creator of the site might just be having a lark, but the sources those 'genders' are drawn from are highly serious about themselves.

    As hyper serious as tweens and SJWs can ever be.

    Why do you morons CARE what gender someone decides they are? I mean, seriously, why is this important to you? Are you that confused with your pee-pee that you have to make an issue out of other people's pee-pees? Fuck sake, get over it.

    Sexuality and gender should be a total non-issue and yet everyone blows it up into something so vital that it pushes out actually important things like how we're making the Earth hostile to human life. None if it would be an issue if people like nail bunny would just shut the fuck up about it. Just because he has a micropenis, doesn't mean he gets to lash out at everyone else for wanting to chop off theirs.

    You want to fuck who you want to fuck, and they agree, I don't care. You want me to help you pretend you're really gendered as something from outer space (caelgender)? Nope.
