How many genders do you think there are?
Also, let's discuss the differences between sex and gender and what kinds of tensions between biology and society this dichotomy entails. Feel free to include politics, religion, philosophy, sociology, and anything else you have at your disposal for the sake of lively argumentative discourse.
Issues regarding sexism, gender politics and the LGBT community are the focus.
I discourage personal attacks and disrespectful demeanor. Everyone here has the right to voice his or her opinion as well as to challenge and take to task the opinions voiced respectfully and intelligently.
Dr. Kleinfelter originally published finding of 5 genders but in recent years it was scaled back to 4 (and now you only hear of 3 usually). The four identified were the standard XY, XX and then the XXY male and the XYY Female (xyy is less heard of in recent years).
Since this is based on genetics, these would actually be different sexes (biological) rather than genders (societal). Do you know anything about how these genes actually manifest themselves in real people and what kinds of challenges they cause?
These are most certainly genders. What is your definition of gender? You need to reword your question if you are looking for something else.
