I don't believe gender exists. It's just a kind of social conditioning. What is the actual difference? You could easily identify as male and like wearing dresses, or female and prefer to wear a binder. So really, male and female are a set of preferences. There are no solid dividing lines, because it doesn't naturally occur. :3
Your comment is every possible thing wrong with sex division.
In your sense, "male" would refer to people with penises (including those that are biologically female in various genetic and/or chemical ways) and everything that doesn't have them would be "female" (including mixed genitalia, biologically penisless or neuter males, and any form of hermaphroditism or pseudohermaphroditism, as well as the absence of genitalia/sex-hormones whatsoever — and then there's late-developing males as well, who are completely feminine until testosterone production kicks in at puberty and they suddenly develop masculine traits and genitals) ..so that division is rather one sided, don't you think?
I'm sure it makes sense if you look at the use of a bathroom, where a penis helps you stand peeing whereas a lack of one forces you to sit (or be an acrobat), but for every other categorising strategy that statement is completely useless.
Actually, "other" is often used for people who don't feel strictly male or female. A broad term for this is "non-binary" ; male/female sounds like a binary choice (you can either be one of the other), therefore people who don't fit this binary are often reffered to as "non-binary".
Yes, I know that ^__^ but the other commenter was saying that JojoesArt wanted to see who's physically male/female. That's why I asked why would they mean, then, by « other » ? But it's possible that they meant who identifies themself as the following gender.
What I meant by "naturally" is what would happen if we didn't have gender norms and just liked whatever we liked. I wasn't talking about physical sex, there's a pretty obvious difference there. When you said it does occur naturally, did you mean in the social structures of other animals, or were you talking about physical gender?
Sex and gender are not the same thing though. You are right that there are two sexes, male and female (although nature has it's way to have exceptions from that rule) but gender is a social thing. Since the question is only "are you male or female" it could mean both so basically you're both right.
