Tortured Google Employee Finally Admits There Are More Than Two Genders, 2+2=5

I realize it's just a joke, but I'm not sure why anyone would want to deny that there are more than two genders. Affirming a plurality of genders is not the same as equating gender with sex, nor as forcing people to accept that changes in gender presentation are tantamount to changes in sex. Am I missing something?

Yeah, I agree...the joke doesn't quite work...but 'sex' isn't a funny term, whereas 'gender' has become hilarious.

Although, there's a pretty good argument that there are only two genders: *masculine* and *feminine* the only other real contender is *androgynous*...but you can characterize that as intermediate between the two genders instead of as a third one (and I think its probably best to do so). The big lists of "genders" aren't really genders. I mean, gender *does*, in a sense, show up as a spectrum of options that isn't as bimodal as sex...but...

You're a killjoy, Anon...a killjoy!

Look, if you want to deny people the right to identify themselves as Frankensteinian hodgepodges of their own personal fetishes and psychological issues and subsequently demand that you alter the English language to refer to that identity,

THEN YOU GO AHEAD AND MANSPLAIN YOUR THREE-GENDER THEORY TO THEM, YOU BIGOTED POOL OF CISEWAGE.
