In your own opinion, should gender be based on sex, or on what a person feels that they are?


Some people, even though born as a certain sex, believe that they are actually the opposite, despite what their body might be like. So do you think that people should have the right to claim their own gender, or should they just accept what they were given in nature.

    What about intersexed individuals? People with ambiguous genitalia? Why does matter? It's not like we go around looking at people's junk when we use the restroom. At least I hope you don't.

    Actually savvy, homosexuals CAN change into heterosexuals and become natural again. Examples exist of homosexuals who have had a change of heart and went on to lead normal, heterosexual lives.

    The gift of mankind, what makes us so intelligent is that we can manipulate nature. All this talk about nature, and it only matters when an ideology that has help together strict division of power is challenged.

    Surgery has proven to eliminate the dysphoria felt in transsexual individuals; studies have shown that post-op transsexuals have healthier and happier lives. If someone has a natural deformity should they not seek treatment? It was given by nature.

    I see, you made a valid point. Then what about if the person had a sex change? Does their gender really depend on their genitalia?

    I know plenty of biological women that act like two bit whores. Now days it's almost a requirement for women.
