    @Billie Lane, Interesting thought.

    I understand what you are saying but I don't buy it.

    And I do not understand what she is saying, but yet feel compelled to either "buy it" or dispute it, but.....cannot.

    Why do we get so hung up on the question of gender? It is so complex, with no obvious answer. Who knows why a heterosexual male enjoys dressing in female clothes, or why homosexual men and women are attracted to their own sex. There must be millions of bi sexual married men and women who lead double lives and manage to keep it under wraps and raise families successfully. In many eyes this is wrong but who is in a position to judge?
    Those of us who are (Normal?) cannot imagine what it must be like to be different and what the hell, there are many more things to worry about.

    Normal here but my take is I leave you alone your life just give me the same in return, don't try to get me to condone yours I will not, I don't ask you the same of mine. Really very simple.

    Apparently, they are going to start training young children that there are at least 15 gender choices, and that it is “fluid” and can change from time to time, or as new choices come along.
    This is going to be a required class in some schools, and parents will NOT be informed that their children are taking this class, nor will they be able to opt-out of their children taking the class.
    Personally, I think that this will make an already confusing thing even harder for children to understand, and for parents to bring their children up.

    There are three genders: male, female, and confused.

    @Beth Gallagher
    According to the State of California, there are far more:

    "In the book, gender is described as, “boy, girl, both, neither, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, transgender, gender neutral, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two spirit…”

    Such institutionalized (educational) reform was tried in Canada. It resulted in double absenteeism as well as great parental dissatisfaction.

    Just sayin'

    Sorry, but the state of California does not determine genetics. XX = FEMALE, XY = MALE

    It is funny it should be self limiting because they can not reproduce. The people who change on a weekly bases are just sick.
    If you believe in the Bible God had a treatment it was called Sodom and Gomorrah
