Gender studies, with Judith (most useful degree in the world)

    Gender.
    Sêx.

    Are they the same? What even is their meaning anymore? Is there more than two of each?

    So obviously throughout the years, the definition of these words seem to have taken a weird turn. When asked how many genders there are, some will tell you 2, and others might name as many as 63.
    Seems like there is a huge range of opinions when it comes to gender, with SJWs particularly siding on one extreme and mostly right-wing activists on the other.
    Gender and sêx seem to be a subject that has risen a lot in popularity in 2018, so much so it's now even considered a university degree to study it.

    So I thought it would be interesting to see what you peeps have to say about it.

    To do so we can draw the context of a friend, announcing for example that they are non-binary (term for genders that fall somewhere in the middle of the gender spectrum and are neither strictly male or female). How would you react?
    What's your definition of gender? Is it assigned at birth? Does it defer from sêx?

    Are you more:

    gender

    or:

    gender fluid

    ps- this topic was wirtten while tipsy, my bad for gramma.r mistakes and whatnot 😂



  • @WtfJudith Gender and se.x both are social constructs 😃

    @WtfJudith true, who tf cares. Fuçk gender. Fück Gender studies, you'll eventually land up in mc Donald after studying this crap.oof, but i have noticed that it's only the gender that defines people of any gender other than make and female.

    not only the "other genders", but gender in general will also define how people treat you, think of you and it may be advantageous or not given the situation

    This subject is really crazy. I mean Gender-Studies. Did you know that almost all papers written in Gender Studies are cited 0 or 1 times? And citations do say something about quality. This means ppl spend months writing scientific papers which literally noone reads except them, their editor and their mother. Wether gender is a construct or real, I cannot understand why the universities spend millions and millions on stuff that literally noone cares about enough to read it. (Obviously I know people care about it alot, but only in the way, that they want to bash your head in if you don't agree)

    this topic is stupid af.
    there are only two genders. not 63. i don't get it when people or scientist thinks
    there's more than that, can we just remember when god created humans and he
    only meant their's two genders which is man and women?
    anyways i dont want waste my breath here and have good night.



  • @WtfJudith
    Oof that's what Oxford dictionary told me
    Gender-'Either of the two sexes (male and female), especially when considered with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones.'
    Oof

    @WtfJudith

    This is really not my cup of tea topic as I don't know much about this but here's my take:

    When we talk about gender I think about a person gender role or what some call it gender identity it's what they "feel" they are when a guy is born and he identifies as a girl... While séx is your "biological séx" a.k.a what is your reproductive organ! This are the main differences, but if we study each case, I believe gender is the case study that has A LOT more depth to it.
    When we talk about séx you can only be a male or a female since you either have a wiener or a kitty 😏
    Genders are more of a subective and "feeling out of place" thing as thus there are more genders to classify different "feelings" some ppl have. By feelings I mean feeling more like a female, or more like a male, or neither, etc...

    This is my take on the topic but take it with a grain of salt as I know little to nothing about it and I might have murdered concepts in my view / opinion on the topic



  • @WtfJudith


    I'm not sure myself. But according to Austin Powers, I assume he believes they are different.

  • It's just another example, isn't it, of our society becoming obsessed with things that simply don't matter. Why does someone's gender matter, unless you find you're falling in love with them, and wonder whether they're up for a bunk-up --and that's a very, very rare scenario, I think, unless you're some kinda Mr Lover-Lover.

    FURTHER MORE, it's ironic that the SJWs and Right-Wingers you mentioned, @WtfJudith, are so preoccupied with gender, while people's political identifications, which I'd argue are much more important, are allowed to be so vague and unspecific.

    For instance, as a communist, you'd be tempted to call me 'left wing', and yet I loathe Jeremy Corbyn and I'm pro-austerity, so what do you do with a massive contradiction like that? It's lazy definitions like that have led to the entire Communist Party of Great Britain supporting a political leader who's constituency is hundreds of miles removed from any factories or agriculture. And surely stuff like that is more important than whether anyone's sexy-sexy?



  • @Jeff9998 so there are only 2 genders 😆


  • tws gay club but no homo Movie Buff Gamers Global Moderator

    @Jeff9998 tbh at this point, i don't care how many genders there are
    there can be 2 or 63, i'm finding that gender defines people wayyyyy too much
    i'm just wondering why it's that big of an issue



  • @WtfJudith true, who tf cares. Fuçk gender. Fück Gender studies, you'll eventually land up in mc Donald after studying this crap.oof, but i have noticed that it's only the gender that defines people of any gender other than make and female.

  • Well it is a question of definition. If people define gender to mean "a specific category of how you define yourself sexually and what you like in a sexual way" (I'm sure that's not what the oxford dictionary would ever say, but just bear with this oversimplified examples) than that is what it means. That's the purpose of a definition.

    Séx however is defined biologically and biologically there are 2 sexes. (And then there are people who have an opposite second chromosome to how they look, but that is about it.) This view, that biology actually tells us some truth – that is not just a human construction some backwards person came up with – is nowadays called: Biological Essentialism.

    And if you hold it, you are in grave danger of having an angry twitter mob show up at your twitter-doorstep. Basically you'll get a bunch of easily offended and triggered people who don't like that nature is what it is and that they cannot infinetely mold it – and themselves – to their own image of what is good and right or what they currently like or dislike. And you'll have to put up with that, because in this time and age they have more power than the rest of us.

    But, the rest of us are way more people than them. We'll just all need to get up on our feet and tell them off. If enough people do that, all this mess will resolve itself.



  • @WtfJudith Judith, all is well. Here my hugs.

    No need to think too much complicated things. You just need to be ALIVE AND SURVIVE
