Where Are They Now...?
The science shows that there are more than 2 genders. Science is always coming up with crazy shit that would freak people out if they could relate to it. This revelation about the world happens to land in an area where people have a huge mental library of anecdotal evidence. "I know what a boy is! I know what a girl looks like!" 

That's why I always ask if someone knows any trans people in real life. Once you see it, you're like oh. Weird. The whole world has amazing diversity. So many animals, so many plants, so much bizarre variation. 

They find freaky fish at the bottom of the ocean  glowing fish  but nobody freaks out about that. It doesn't affect their day to day.

Scientific research shows gender is not just a social construct

Three Gender Myths Almost Everyone Believes–But Shouldn’t

If someone has a narrative they can find or create "science" to prove it.

I have to agree with Malile. I personally see no harm in trans people and follow the live and let live philosophy.
At the back of my mind though I see it as a form of body dismorphia, I.e. a mental disorder where there is the illogical perception that your own appearance is somehow wrong.
Over simplified I know but if an anorexic came to you saying they were fat, you wouldn’t send them for surgery, you would try to treat the mental illness. But with trans (I know they have consultations) they are allowed surgery to correct their sex?
The argumentative person in me wants to scream whenever I hear someone say they were born in the wrong body but the liberal says no harm no foul.
As Malile says getting rid of gender perceptions would be a better way of dealing with this disorlder.
But what do I know I’ve never had to walk a mile in a trans persons stilettos.

Well, let's see your own links:

According to your 2nd link, there are more than 2 genders (Myth #2).
According to your 3rd link, there are only 2 sexes.
Conclusion: There is a definite sex and gender distinction.
Gender is NOT the same thing as sex.

Shotgun agrees with you on that. So do a lot of people.
In fact, according to Wikipedia:

Quote:The sex and gender distinction is not universal. In ordinary speech, sex and gender are often used interchangeably. Some dictionaries and academic disciplines give them different definitions while others do not. Some languages, such as German or Finnish, have no separate words for sex and gender, and the distinction has to be made through context.

Conclusion: Some people recognise the distinction, others don't.
That is my basis for saying this is a more complex matter than most people think.

And I don't claim to know the absolute truth about these matters.
A lot of research and open-mindedness is required for a deeper understanding.

But I stand by my point:

Considering sex and gender as the same thing is simpler and easier.
That's why we do it. If it's true or not, only time will tell.

Man, it's not MY definition. Most of the time I consider gender a synonym of sex, same as you.
But in the context we are talking, I believe there has to be a new and distinct definition, because
we are making new findings and we have to make things clear by expanding the meaning of the words.
And I agree, it's a relatively new definition of the word "gender" what we're talking about.
The point in question is not this, but if there's a need for a new definition, this or a different one. I believe there is.

Over and out! Let me enjoy my male sex and gender now by watching some of this hotty Jenny Blighe which I just discovered! Tongue
Trying to get this thread back on track here, speaking of Where Are they Now remember Jenna Presley  

[Image: julesjordan_com-8.jpg] 

She started in porn in 2005 but took a break from it in 2008 and cameback in 2009 with new boobs and came back for the second and last time in 2010 and did IR. She reitred from the porn industry in late 2012, but several months later she found god.

2 years later since when she got married, sad how her porn career went. If she would've stay clean and off of drugs she would've still do porn today but I'm glad she happy and looks good. But we all know she will blame porn for her drug problem.

Jenna married a minster. Oh well, good she is finally clean and sober.
I damn sure hope she returns to porn soon. Apparently she's a "motivational speaker" now
