So... I Thought there were only males and females. Is transgender a gender? I've heard wouldn't they prefer to be called male and female instead of being singled as a transgender? I'm so lost

Transgender isn't an actual gender since it incorporates male/female

No. People who "change" their gender are still either boy or girl.
Then they get called brave and win a huge award instead of someone who lost both legs, but still runs marathons

Pansexual is falling in love with anyone like falling in love with bisexuals or gays,lesbians,staight,transgender doesnt really matter who they fall for

Edit: Bisexual people are attracted towards male and female only( i think)

The comment is saying that there are two genders (male and female).
By mental, he is talking about sexual preference (gay, lesbian, bisexual)

In all honesty seeing how he talked about mental gender, he probably was going to say something cliche and harsh like 'Autistic' being a gender, etc. It is a YouTube comment.

So pansexual is being attracted to all genders, even though there are 2 .-. Uhhh.

I think that term was made for mushrooms, I heard they had over a hundred genders


Edit: Mushrooms have 36,000 genders, tf?!

Yes exactly In a mental way it could be considered as a gender because of its difference of liking both sex's instead of just one

What else does "mentally" imply? You guys are already discussing different forms of it.

Being Pansexual usually means you have a sexual attraction to anything, whereas being Bisexual means you're sexually attracted to all things human. I know this as there's a rumour someone at my school is Pansexual, yet to ask her (And probably never will :whistling:)

There is a difference between gender and sex.

Gender is what you identify as mentally - what you prefer to be called or recognized as. There may be more than 2, it's really what you identify as.

Sex is basically your 'gender' but it depends on the chromosomes and human functions that separate the 2 sexes. There are only 2 of these.

And no - transgender is not a gender (identity), it is a gender expression.

We are consisted of males and females each sex with different parts there comes a time when people are born differently physically they may be male or femal but mentally their hormones are either towards the same gender physically or both genders either way it doesn't matter who is who we are all people and nobody shouldn't be treated based on their preferences for that won't matter hair the type of people we are and how we respect each other.

Physically, there are 3 different genders. This is actually a study conducted by the WTO (World Twitch Organization) and released just yesterday, so it's hot :poop: at the moment!

The 3 genders of the human race (humani generis) is:

Male
Female

If boys are XY chromosomes
And girls are XX chromosomes

What would happen if someone had YY?

That's impossible, as one parent only has the Y genetic while the other has both X and Y.

Pansexuals are NOT attracted to ANYTHING, lol. I don't know where you heard that from Liam but it isn't true.

Bisexual- Attracted to both Genders.
Pansexual- More fluid, they are capable of being attracted to anyone, which means those who are transgender, male, female, etc.

Transgenders believe that they were born in the wrong body. It may be hard to understand but they're still people.

There are two physical genders, male and female, but I believe some people may mentally not have a gender. They prefer to be called they/them/their, I've heard.

The person is the comments is absolutely correct. The physical genders are male and female...or supposedly there is a third where it is a mix? But either way that include both male and female. The mental "genders", as explained to you, is the idea of being gay, or bisexual, etc.

Uhm, I might not be right-on-the-dollar with this info, but it's what I have observed from being on tumblr a lot the past year... (lol)

Male (uses he/him pronouns)

Female (uses she/her pronouns)

Agender- (no gender? uses they/them pronouns- still a male or female when it comes to reproductive anatomy)

Gender-fluid/Bigender (is fine with any pronoun: he/him/she/her ?? still a male or female when it comes to reproductive anatomy) This one I'm really unsure of lol...

Intersex- (someone who is neither female nor male when it comes to reproductive anatomy- pronouns probably vary based on preference)

Transgender/transsexual(someone male/female but feel like they were born in the "wrong body"- pronoun becomes whatever they have changed their gender to.)

---

Their gender usually determines what pronouns you use for them. Uhh still, no matter what you use to refer to them- their sex is still either female or male (Unless they're an intersexual) But I think it would be more polite by referring to them according to their "gender" rather than sex.

There are 2 sexes and many genders.
Gender is what you identify as, while sex is what you physically are. Transgender is an umbrella term, gender is a spectrum.

Gender is between your ears, Sex is between your legs
