Does a persons gender always correlate with their sex?

Basically, I’m asking if people who say that a persons gender is not always the same as their biological sex is valid.

  • It's all absurb now. In the past, and slightest now, there are intersex people who have men occupying women's bodies and vice-versa. These were the true trans. Most of what calls itself trans now are sad people wanting to be special and extra unique.

    Somehow it became popular in the last five or so years. For one it became cool to be different. There was a time when all a person knew is that they were trapped in the wrong body. They didn't dream up special hard to remember pronouns. They just wanted to be now known as he or she. They fully intended or made the switch as best they could.

    Now with non-binary all these mostly young people want pigeon hole their every aspect of gender and sexuality. They can project whatever they want, or partially, and give themselves a run-on sentence of definitions to make sure no one can what they are, or what they are into. You understand what they say when they're saying it, but 10 minutes later you're struggling to remember every last word. You might remember pan, but it could be messing you up that they male projecting lesbians. And if you're in a room full of of trans, it's like playing the memory game.

    And to make it anymore weird and off the charts, some guys are going down to their DMV is stating that they are gender dysphoric, and some states don't require a head shrink to sign off on that condition. So any guy can suddenly become a protected class. It's like a cheat code to get more promotions because many corporations have quotas. If a man can be a trans woman, that is like two birds with one stone. So if you're older than 45 and male being being sidelined for POC or women hiring preferences, trans trumps both of those groups hands down.

  • I see what you're trying to do here. "Transphobe bait," is it? I'm just going to vote for other, because I don't feel like having arguments about this crap.

    Anyway, "gender" and "sex" for 99% of history were the same thing in regards to reproductive organs in human beings. Then crazy people with gender dysphoria came along. Now "gender" is this made-up, magical, wishy-washy thing that can "mean whatever you want it to mean."

    At first, they tried to make gender mean "how you live your life; masculine or feminine." But then ten years ago, THAT wasn't even good enough, and they had redefine gender AGAIN to not just be "living as a male, female, or transitioning inbetween (transgender)," but all this ridiculous "non-binary, intersex, two-spirit" horseshit that mentally ill losers seeking attention and validation believe in. Like Demi Lovato and Ellen Page. So "gender" went from "sex," to "lifestyle," to "literally whatever you feel like," all in the span of like, 20 years.

    I don't even care anymore. As long as people shut the hell up and don't try to force to believe in their BS gender fantasies (pronouns, new names, etc) or call me "transphobic" if I don't swallow their semen and wax their balls like they want, then they call "gender" whatever the hell they want. It doesn't objectively change what biological sex is, though.

  • *rolls eyes* ... Yes. There is only male & female sexes and genders. Everything else is a delusion.

    I mean I grew up as a tomboy. Wore boy clothes. Played with boy toys. Had my hair very, as in crewcut, short. Never wore a dress, makeup or heels. Never got my ears pierced. Climbed trees, was more interested in mechanics & electronics than stupid celebrities and fashion, etc. Learnt how to use various tools better than my brother (I do home repairs, he doesn't). Etc., etc., etc.

    If I had a mental disability, as many people who "identify" as the opposite sex do either diagnosed or underlying, I may have thought I am "meant to be a boy".

    Never once entertained the idea. I was a girl who grew up not really interested in girlie girl things. Nowadays as a successful career woman who is respected in my field and as a woman attracting the attention of some very successful men over the years... I will wear dresses, etc. My hair is almost to my ass it is that long. Back as a youth it was a phase I went through.

  • There are people who's sex, gender, and gender identity match up (this is what cisgender means). Then there are people who's sex, gender, and gender identity are completely different from one another. Why is this? Well, it can't be easily explained. But I would explain it as the person looks inside of themselves and see's who they truly are and then goes on to identify as whoever they are. So if they see themselves as a boy or girl or non-binary then that's completely fine. I mean, nobody can tell these people who they are and who they aren't. It's something only you can know. I personally think they're valid. However I think I should point out that a person's gender expression is not the same as sex, gender, and gender identity (since we get these confused very often).

    • Let me explain my last sentence here. Myself as an example: I was born a female at birth, this is my sex. I identify as a woman, this is my gender identity. I go by she and her pronouns, this is my gender. I am mostly feminine presenting however I wear girl, guy, and gender neutral clothes (along with other things). This is my gender expression. As you can see I am a cisgender woman but only my gender expression is different at times.

    • the concept of identifying yourself is scientifically invalid, you cannot choose facts. science doesn't change based on your self observation. and you are not a trustworthy source of information on yourself this is why the entire concept of gender is not a scientific concept. but a religion

    • Most of the scientific studies make mention of underlying mental disorders sweetie. Bipolar, schizophrenia, and body dysmorphism in particular. I suggest you read them thoroughly and see if you can comprehend the "big words" being used.

  • Can be different from sex

    • no it can't be, gender is a pseudoscience built on the lie that you can self report scientifically valid information about yourself. your self assessments are never valid. humans cannot be trusted to report valid information about themselves. So do we have any other proof that gender exists? no... we don't. the few studies we have are self reported (invalid) or accidentally measuring something else (like brain scans mistaking plasticity for gender) (also invalid). there is no scientific proof someone can be other than their gender

  • People can pretend to be an elephant but that doesn't make 'em an elephant. I can climb into the oven but that don't make me a biscuit!

  • Yeah of course it can be different.

    Also Sexual orientation has very little to do with Gender identity.

  • Gender and sex are different. This is why there are two completely different words. Seriously, what in the actual f**k? Look them up.

  • No and it’s silly to think that a person can change something so intrinsic as his sex, the word gender didn’t even become known until recently.
    Just because a man has low testosterone or has feminine personality doesn’t mean he is a woman, he is still a man and has only a mans idea of womanhood and visa versa.


    To think people just become a different sex even on a whim is crazy

  • Gender and sex are the same. To deny this is to deny objective reality.

    Those who believe themselves to be a different gender than their body is need psychological help.

  • In french for example there is one word for both sex and gendre, it's "sexe". The thing is your sex and your gendre are the exact same thing it's like saying your dollar and your buck, two words referencing the same real object.

    Those who preach about your gendre being different and some people are women born in men's bodies are mentally ill people in a world where we are not allowed to offer them help anymore.

  • Same, don't mix gender with culture or preferences.

  • It's easy to figure out look the definitions up.
    Gender is what you identify as mentally and sex is what biological organs you are born with.

  • If you’re born with male sex organs your gender is male

    If your born with female sex organs your gender is female.

    Sex and gender are the same thing. There is no such thing as being a man trapped in a woman’s body - it’s a mental illness. I don’t know how people think things like incest and transsexuality is perfectly normal.

    • oh finally a sensible woman. i don't know why but women are more easily roped into this gender pseudoscience crap

  • Biologically, yes. No man has become a woman and vice versa through gene therapy or the like. Hermaphrodites are something different.

    The gender malarkey is more to do with the psychological, and keeps those academics and whacks in a job. No news on those who identify as dolphins and apache attack helicopters yet, though.

  • If your gender is not your biological sex, then everything I've learned from kindergarten up until College is garbage and needs to be thrown in the garbage.
    I'm not giving up a lifetime's worth of education to accommodate an alternative definition on sexual identity, founded on some fad based, flavor of the month gender stereotypes😩.

    Does a persons gender always correlate with their sex?

    Capiche?
    You can disregard the question mark in that confirmation of my not having to rip your arms out of their sockets!!!

  • There are literally like 4 dictionary definitions of gender.

    one of them describes grammar not people. That's the original.

    one of them is literally their sex.

    one refers to how you are classed and treated. It's possible though unusual for someone to be classed and raised as outside their sex but it can happen. It can certainly happen in the short term. More significantly under this definition gender primarily means the socialized versus innate differences between groups.

    the most recent use of gender (still decades old) is to describe an internal state of how you feel and want to present. Obviously for some people that doesn't match their sex.

    so to answer your question - it's absolutely valid for some meanings of gender and absolutely not for others. Which is fine. The problem is if people shift definition mid argument which actually people on both sides of the argument do quite often.

  • Yes, we know gender and sex don't always match up

  • Gender identity is different from your assigned sex by nature.

    • no its not, there is no such thing as gender identity. its not a real concept. it defies the basic rule of science that facts need to be observable

    • I humbly disagree, but thanks for your opinion.

    • you can't disagree science requires observation or its not science... its a religion

  • No. Because, simply put, there's no single metric to determine either.
    Some things you may not know about Transgenderism!

  • Some persons aren't right in their heads.
    You can't blame them.
    You can't blame sex or gender either :)

  • Can be different, hence why there is transgender people and non binary people. People who say it's fake and made up are idiots and have probably never read a scholar article or one of the thousands of scientific studies.

    • but there is no such thing as a trans or non binary person. they are just mentally ill and confused there are no real scientific studies on the concept either. science is about observable facts and there are no studies that observe the concept of gender... only observing the claim that someone is that gender for example you have brainscan studies claiming a person's brain matches their gender... but plasticity explains that better than gender, the brain changes based on what you do with your life any study you show me on gender will fall into 1 of 3 categories: 1. internally invalid: the study will not have scientific methodology 2. externally invalid: the study will not be measuring the thing it claims to be measuring 3. it won't be science at all and will be some magazine article or something

    • @007kingifrit yeah exactly you're an idiot 😊 your 5 min of research doesn't mean shit compared to people who actually study this and have studied it for years, decades even. Go bother someone else with your transphobia.

    • @007kingifrit I'm sorry did you not see where I said to go bother someone else?

  • Yes, gender symbols is whats used in scientific wildlife encyclopedias, field guides, biology books, medical books, etc. to refer to the given biological sex of an organism. trying to use gender for non biological sex descriptors is purely cultural, as mindsets typically are not gendered.

    Does a persons gender always correlate with their sex?
    • So, with that in mind, I guess you believe that bisexual means having both male and female reproductive parts. Since that is the biological definition of the word and how it was used prior to it referring to someone who likes both men and women, in 1914.

    • @CharlieBadger Hermaphrodite was the term I'm used to, but thats interesting. I do typically prefer original definitions to words, I feel like the farther you go forward in time, the more illiteracy tends to add to or replace definitions. if we revert bisexual to it's original use, what should we call being attracted to men and women?

    • @thespacegnome Ambisexual was one of the early suggestions. I'm pretty okay with the evolution of language. I mean that's how we got English in the first place, the language diverged from its German roots and borrowed from many of the Romance languages along the way, hell, old English and German can even be traced back to Sanskrit for some of their rules.
