Do you think they/them pronouns are valid?

Yes, duh! People can use whatever pronouns they genuinely identify with! They/them, xe/xem, potato/potatoself... I don't care!

Well, yes, but she/her, he/him, and they/them are the only pronouns I support. I don't support xe/xem or other ridiculous ones.

No! There are only two genders! All of these so-called "non-binaries" just want to feel special!

I literally don't care. Use whatever pronouns you want - it doesn't affect me.

I don't care, but I don't believe there's more than two genders

If you want, use whatever pronouns you want and I'll try to remember

There are 3 biological sexes. Genders are unlimited.

You're correct, but Intersex is more than one sex. There are dozens of forms that intersex can manifest itself in, and thousands (millions, more likely) of people with biology that doesn't quite fit the definition of "male" or "female" but still are characterized as such because of the sex binary.

Well, I know you like to argue, but this is too touchy and that's mean it's going to end up being lengthy. So I'm just going to leave my opinion here and vamoose before anything gets started

I really don't truly agree with genders other than male or female, but it's not my place to say what they can and can't do. I'll respect them for who they are and use they/ them if that's what they feel, even if I don't entirely agree with it. They're still human as well.

@WaitForIt that's a really mature thing to say, and I commend you for it. I wish more people thought like that - "Personally, I think this is ridiculous, but they can do whatever they want."

Well, they're people as well. I can't control any biological creature outside of me, and I'm perfectly aware of that. Just because there's a conflict in beliefs doesn't mean I should be mean about it.

Okay but... Why? There are more than two genders. More than two sexes, speaking biologically, even when just talking about humans.
reply
vive_la_revolution
How so? Gender is simply a set of traits that we assign socially to different sexes. So if there are more than two sexes, then there are definitely more than two genders. An intersex person may not identify as male or female. A male or female may not identify with their birth sex and/or gender, and they may not identify with the "opposite" sex/gender either.

I understand, but that's not exactly what I meant.
I understand there's more than male and female sexes, but when it comes to genders, in my opinion, it gos a bit far.

So... You don't understand it, so you oppose it. That does not make sense.
Sex is not black and white, biologically speaking. There are millions of people who are biologically a combination of what we consider male and female.

Alot of it is I don't have an understanding of it so it's unrealistic to me, if that makes sence. Part of it religous views as well.

I tend to think that xe/xem etc is going a bit overboard but I would never actually tell that to someone who uses those pronouns. Like, if they wanna, then hell yeah have fun. And I think that they/them pronouns are not only valid, but essential for having an operable egalitarian society in the regard of linguistics
reply
GalacticBiRavenclaw
Exactly! Like, I personally think xe/xem is a little odd, but if someone genuinely, seriously feels like those pronouns are the best for them, I'll use them.

Yeah exactly! Like it's not my job to tell people how to identify themselves. I don't live in their heads - I cannot dictate how they feel. Only they really know and understand how they feel. So whatever makes them happy they can go for, even if I don't understand it. I mean if I have a close friend that tells me they identify with xe/xem, I'll definitely make See More▼
