I guess at my age I have come to terms of who I am and what I have accomplished in my role of been a female of the human race, I don't remember when in any time of my existence during my short life in earth I ever doubted or wanted to be anything else.
I don't really care what people wants to be tagged with if that makes them "feel special", but when the political correctness forces others to deal with the stupidity of some of never finding themselves because they chose to be different or special I have problems with that, because like I say, beside the tagging and the choosing we are all the same, if you were born human you are either female or male and that is end of it.
I am sick of stupidity and I will have none of that nonsense that is been doing rounds this days in social media sites, that is the reason I don't belong to any of them, to tell the truth, ATS is the only board I actually belong to, because that kind of stupidity will be scrutinized and dismissed in not time here.

I don't think anyone disagrees with you, but the discussion was about gender, not sex.

Hermaphrodites, are a biological oddity, they are classified still as Male with female organs or Female with Male organs, it's a mutation, as is Intersex (although it's rare but still a genetic mutation) it still doesn't explain things like CIS_gender and all the other ones they are trying to ram down our throats, I understand if someone IDENTIFIES with a different gender than they are born with, it does not mean they ARE a different gender until they take action to change that, they are still born that way, I could live with accepted medical terminology but to tell me that someone who has a sex change operation is not born a certain gender (ie: male or female) is out in left field.
Aside from having an ambiguous-looking external genitalia, true hermaphroditism in humans differs from pseudohermaphroditism in that the person's karyotype has both XX and XY chromosome pairs (47XXY, 46XX/46XY, 46XX/47XXY or 45X/XY mosaic) and having both testicular and ovarian tissue. One possible pathophysiologic explanation of this rare phenomenon is a parthenogenetic division of a haploid ovum into two haploid ova. Upon fertilization of the two ova by two sperm cells (one carrying an X and the other carrying a Y chromosome), the two fertilized ova are then fused together resulting in a person having dual genitalial, gonadal (ovotestes) and genetic sex.
