The differentiation cannot just hinge on which word people use, it has to have a basic concept which does not depend on such semantics, instead it's simply a matter of context.
    Sorry, but I think it has more to do with politics than native language.

    It can be construed as rude sure,but my thoughts when making this thread and the title was to just be straight to the point and direct,no bullshitting about this topic.

    I cannot read people's minds, though.

    There are some cultures that recognize more than two genders as well.
    But I believe that those "social constructs" are also based in a objective reality of the distribution of character traits and roles of men and women in history.

    Probably. But I think when people talk about traits belonging to one gender or another, like women are nurturing, and men are aggressive, for example, that doesn’t accurately describe a person. Women and men have both “masculine” and “feminine” traits.

    Transgender is nothing more than a trend. If it were real, it would've been known about centuries ago. But suddenly a lot of people come out of the woodwork claiming transgender? Yeah right.

    If transgender were real, I could see why people would be claiming it. The problem is, its nothing more than a current trend. People do it because they think its popular.

    I already posted in this thread to say I think transgenderism is a mental illness. I also believe they are more prone to other mental problems than regular people.

    Transgender Ax Attacker Uses Drugs, Demon Possession, to Defend Himself in Court


    YouTube screenshot of Evie Amati attacking someone with an ax in a 7-Eleven.

    An Australian man who identifies as a transgender woman defended himself in court on Thursday, claiming that he was either possessed by a demon or his mind was addled by drugs and therefore it was his body, not him, who attacked people at a 7-Eleven with an ax last year.

    Evie Amati, the 26-year-old suspect, does not deny being bodily present at the time, but claims his* mind was somewhere else. Amati allegedly attacked two people with an ax at a 7-Eleven on January 7, 2017. The suspect then reportedly swung the ax twice at a man outside who managed to avoid the blows. Amati has pleaded not guilty to six charges, including two counts of wounding with intent to murder.
    Amati said he experienced his face smiling without being in control of the action. "I remember that smile, the smile that was not mine," he recalled. "A sinister smile that plastered my face that I couldn't control. And I black out."
    There is video of the ax attack but I didn't watch it. To read the rest of the story click here : https://pjmedia.com/trending/transge...self-in-court/

    Transgenders have probably been around forever,along with homosexuality and any other sexual deviancy you can think of.In almost all Austronesian and Amerindian cultures Transgenders were widely known and even accepted.Such as the Samoan "Fafafine".The Navajo "Two Spirits",etc.

    From the seems of it though Trans was thought of very differently in these Non Western cultures and had alot more Spiritual influence instead of the modern oversexualized hype we have in our modern Hollywood world.

    Which are slightly differently distributed with respect to sex resulting in two slightly skewed overlapping bell curves (normal distributions) with different means which are then labelled “masculine” and “feminine”. However men and women who fall into the overlapping part of the curves will still be different and the feminist statement that a "feminine" brain in a male body is still a man is probably quite apposite.
