Not sure if this is on point but I'm not a fan of this whole new "gender movement" thing that's taking place and to the point, if my "gender"
understanding is right then Cis means the sex you were born as, right? If so then yes, but I always thought drags were only men dressed as women but I
was recently told that women can be drag as well (confused me). Back onto the gender issue. I do think that this is a fad that's going to die out in a
few years (hopefully) because I've seen it confuse many people including teenagers. As I've said before (other replies on other threads) I work in a
secondary school in the UK and have had to sit through long sometimes multiple lessons or assemblies concerning gender and heard kids asking questions
like "But why? Why do we have to hear this" and the teacher replying "because it's todays problems" and that's what I think this will become. We are
watching people accept this as a real thing as factual. Now I'm not saying people aren't born in the wrong body, with men beleiving they are women and
vice versa (putting intersex aside) but I do think as most sceintists have said that this is a strange situation we're going through. What was a clear
mental issue has now become an accepted part of life and that's troubling for me.
I'm just against adding and changing gender, I think it should stick to male, female and intersex. You want to go from one to the other, then okay
that's your choice but don't ask me to change the way I speak, I'll call you by your new name and respect your choice but adding all these different
genders isn't needed and is going to become a moment of ridicule for a lot of people in the future. I'm putting on my Nostradamus hat here and predict
that in the near future we will look back on these moments and this attempt to change things as a dangerous time that has done more damage than good.
I'll repeat what I wrote earlier, what was once a mental medical illness is now considered to be acceptable. This very thing is what is lead to people
calling to accept all walks of life including some rather dark ones that I can't mention because it'll get this comment removed. I'll end with this -
I'm happy for people to find their place in the world and will support them to do so but we have to accept that this isn't "normal" I do believe that
most people are jumping on this and trying to feel special. Also, kids under the age of sixteen should not be allowed to change their gender. I'm not
talking about dressing up and living as the opposite sex I mean taking the medication, medical procedures to change parts of their body because there
is a growing number of people who are regretting these changes and having to go back to the doctors to have it reversed.
