  • richietog : you are mixing up things. Sex is what your biological organs tell about you. Gender is what you feel you are. So you can be born with male or female genitalia (and with a mix of both, whether it is showing or not), but growing up you may identify/feel of the opposite sex, or none, or both or at times once, both or the other! The former two are binary (either male or female) and the last ones are non-binary. I admit it is a different thing to "understand" deep down unless it interest…
  • (Quote from richietog) When I was in elementary school, a classmate of mine was born a male but he behaved, felt and had the interests of a typical girl, he was very feminine / effeminate in the way he moved, talked and walked (much more than me). He loved to play with Barbies and his parents let him do it. This is how he was, beyond his male attributed and the sex stated on his birth certificate. He was obviously being bullied by the whole society, and later in life he went to study fashion/tex…
  • He wasn't effeminate because he played with Barbies (which are static objects), he was effeminate AND he liked to play with Barbies. So, he didn't *learn* to be effeminate, it was just how he was. Which is exactly my point: we are what we are.
  • Semigoodlooking you wrote a great post. However, some of what you call 'gut feelings' are indeed the product of our culture. For example, we condemn polygamy because someone told us that it is a despicable practice. However, it is perfectly acceptable in other cultures. We morally condemn promiscuity, too, although biology would say that the more varied the mating, the higher chances of survival of the offspring born to it. When I was a kid, I learned that the male mates with one female only, a…
  • I am afraid I don't follow the logic(s) in your post, richietog . Most animal species aren't monogamous, sexual acts between same sex animals happens, the man is the only species that has sex for fun. It was Darwin who said that the more a male mixes, the highest chances of their offspring survival are! I don't think he was involved in the LGBT community or had an agenda to get financed by private groups because public funding is low... But of course you are feel to think otherwise. I also hope …
  • (Quote from richietog) Oh my! I really need to get an education on the superiority of our species.
  • Yeah, we are so superior we need vaccines, antibiotics, shelter, agriculture, tools, technology, science etc. or we would be as vulnerable as the next animal. I am leaving this thread for good because there is really no point in discussing with someone who doesn't believe in science and bases his knowledge of the world on himself alone and his experimental and limited observations. I think your theories are far less believable than those produced by centuries of science and checked by thousands …
