Why the fuck does this "Other" or "Something else" shit exists? Afraid of SJW's or something like that? Or the 51 genders are just too much to type?

    Even the WHO supports there being multiple genders so to say otherwise is just foolish at this point..

    I probably would just avoid this type of post mate. It wont end well

    I've seen people complaining that in a database the gender was a boolean with male = true and female = false. They complained addressing the negativity of false referred to being a female.

    Then the proposed "solution" was to switch cases, and someone complained that this way being a female was like an anomaly, a flag to be set in order to differentiate a female from the default "normal" male.

    I was like 😑

    on google+ you are given a text input to type your gender

    a) At least in Germany a third gender exists by law (and I guess anti discrimination laws disallow discrimination of any gender, including "other", so it is a legal requirement to include in forms).

    b) If you assume that gender is only determined by genetics, there are intersex people that may not be represented by either male or female.

    @sbiewald it’s not a third gender, it’s for people who were biologically born without a sex (a rare medical condition)

    This is the same shit gmail shows. Im pretty sure theirs even says "custom". Like motherfucker this isn't build a bear. Either you are able to give birth (female) or you do not (male). I blame my generation, as this is the same type of shit in high school that i would witness.

    @620hun Sure, but how to represent this in a form? "Click here if you have special medical condition"? I'm somehow uncomfortable with that option.

    It's beyond me how somebody can be insulted by seeing this third option, ironically while getting mad about how easily "the SJWs" are insulted.

    Also, it's just unscientific to act as if gender was binary. It's bimodal, so yeah, most people fit into the binary classification, but not all. Get over it.

    @gashadokuro i know plenty of females who can't give birth, even though they'd want to. Are they less female-y by that? What about people having XXY chromosome? They can't give birth, yet they are not male either. Are they boys or girls?
    Stop classifying people depending on whether they have vagina for you to f*ck them.
    There are XY boys with no grown penis on the outside, only inside. Raised as girls until they grow teen mustache. Are they boys or girls?
    There are many medical cases which go beyond your narrow binary model, but at first you have to acknowledge their existence.
    And, finally, there is one more choice. I DON'T WANT TO DISCLOSE!

    @mt3o see, i gave the benefit of a doubt that wouldnt be brought up, but alas here we are. But yeah, someone is either male or female. Our species does not have a 3rd sex

    @sbiewald male, female, other

    Not rocket science

    @620hun Yes, that's what I meant :). The "third gender" might have been a wrong term by me as the new option in Germany is "divers" which means the same in English.

    @gashadokuro define which is which.

    @mt3o actually that's more of a question for you. Beyond the biological issues, people are either male or female in my perspective. Im unsure what you call a 3rd 4th or 5th sex. Also i don't base someone's sex on if they have a vagina to fuck, since i never mentioned that. And in case it wasnt clear, i am aware there are those who cannot have children.

    @kenogo I wish I could ++ your comment multiple times

    Multiple countries have other as an option. Even if you don't agree with the notion, you will probably have to accept it, if you're dealing with official stuff

    Also some people don’t want their gender published...
  • 5
    First as somebody already mentioned, you might not want to disclose your gender at all.
    Second: I really dont get the problem with this. Even if you think having more than 2 genders is bullshit: then let the "SJWs" have their fun with that, its not like anybody else is harmed or even affected by a third option.

    We already have gashadokuro offended by the "other" option...
