    POLL: Half of Young People Don't Believe Gender Is Binary

    American millennials have a more expansive view of gender than any generation before them, according to a new study.


    "50 percent of the 1,000 people between the ages of 18 and 34 who were interviewed by telephone agreed with the statement "Gender is a spectrum, and some people fall outside conventional categories." Before answering, interviewees were informed, "Some countries, including India, recognize a third gender that is neither male nor female," and were also given the option of agreeing with other statements: "There are only two genders, male and female" (46 percent agreed) or "Don't know" (4 percent)."

    By gender, they mean more on the lines of masculine and feminine. That's my take anyways.

    Gender is learned behaviour. It is an anthropomoprhic construct.

    It is not necessarily related to sex.

    Sadly in Western Society gender and biological sex are conflated. Which is wrong.

    Basic Anthropology or Archaeology 101 at Undergrad. level will teach you this!!!!

    Maybe you need to read what he posts to get what and WHY he posts. I know what you advocate. Idiocy.
