- DISCLAIMER: I am beginning this writing at 10:49 PM, EST, on Saturday, Oct. 16th, to maybe clear up some information for my peers who do not seem to comprehend gender. The facts I provide in this article will be THOROUGHLY fact-checked by many sources, and then explained in words a fairly illiterate person could understand. We will be exploring through many topics about sex, gender, and change, so it would be in your best interest to take a seat and learn. Still, I do not mind if you disagree, I’m writing to inform, not argue - END OF WRITING: It is now 1:15 AM, EST, on Sunday, Oct. 17th. I hope you take some of this to mind. SEX VERSUS GENDER by Ally <3

Do you know the differences between sex and gender? If you just read that and thought, ‘There isn’t one...’, or even a simple, ‘What?’, this article was written for you. Let’s look a little deeper into this. What is SEX? In medical terms, sex is always used to conform to what build of human someone was when they were first born (based on their genitalia). A human can be born into one of three different birth sexes. What’s that? ‘There are only TWO birth sexes? Oh, boy. You’ve really been left out, huh? Time to get into some further detail. The Female Sex One of the three birth sexes a human can be born into is the female sex. You probably knew this already. Heck, you might even (still) be one! Females-at-birth are able to bear children unless they are deemed unfertile. The female sex is predetermined by wether or not the fetus has shown possible displays of female genitalia while still in the womb, concluded a register from The Baby Doctors. If the fetus is born with female sex genitalia, it is a female at birth, claimed by official code registered in many college institutional textbooks on delivering. However, a fetus can show signs of having female genitalia, and not be born a female, but not have male genitalia either! Magnificent, right? But that doesn’t mean the Dr. Man was wrong when he was pointing it out… The Male Sex Another birth sex of the three is the male sex. Again, you know this. No surprise, males-at-birth are able to bear children unless they are deemed infertile, too. The male sex is also predetermined to find if the fetus has obtained signs of male genitalia. And again, textbook code reads that if the fetus is born with male sex genitalia, it is a male at birth. Just as mentioned before, a fetus can show signs of having male genitalia, and not be born a male, but not have female genitalia either, and it still doesn’t make the doctor delivery dudes incorrect on what they saw. Recap Understand? ..No? Good! You, like 96.3% of the world’s population, were not taught about three baby sexes. You may think this is some sort of joke coming up, but really, it’s just a little more complex. Try to follow along. The ‘Hybrid’ Sex The final, most uncommon birth sex is called INTERSEX. If a fetus is born with a ‘hybrid’ of male sex and female sex genitalia, that fetus is determined intersex. Usually, the parents with choose some gender-specific name and pronouns to call their infant casually, but their birth certificate will not bear ‘female’ or ‘male’ under ‘SEX:”. Confused a bit? So are doctors! Delivery medical staff and heredity specialists determine that this phenomenon may be caused by a gene or chromosome disorder/mutation, which are also know to equip infants with birth defections, such as Prader-Willis Syndrome, Down Syndrome, autism afflictions, negative limb development/paralysis, and other possible physical or imperative handicaps. Luckily, intersex is more manageable than other genetic malfunctions. Intersex-at-birth people can live just as average of a life as the other sexes. However, an intersex human has not been recorded to being able to give birth to a live child, or be able to insem-menate a person of female sex into a pregnancy. Primary sources will not provide too much of their testing due to paitients’ wishes. When an intersex baby is delivered and not recognized as a female sex or a male sex by genital recognition, textbook code calls for the delivery nurses’ assistant to quickly ring for the DDW (Director of Delivery Wing) of their hostpital or clinical institution to diagnose the situation correctly. That Can’t Be Right, I’ve Never Met One! Being born as intersex is so very extremely rare, but real. Even so, some parents of intersex babies choose to have corrective genital surgery performed on their infants, then apply the gender they want for their child. Less than WHAT PERCENT HUH of the world’s population were born intersex, so it’s rare to know one. Final Take In Nice job, you’re in the rare percentage of people getting more educated! Woohoo for you! If you didn’t understand before, you now know that it’s possible, although rare, for a fetus to be born as the birth sex currently known as intersex. Did you notice how the word gender was not used as another word for sex? This is because gender differs a lot from sex. Remember, sex is always used to conform to what build of human someone was when they were first born (based on their genitalia). Keep that in mind while reading ahead. What’s GENDER, then? Gender is how a person presents themselves, whether it be the same as what they were born as, or different based on who they are and what feels right to theirselves respectfully. There are hundreds of gender categories and subsets because everyone is different and unique. Many people like to argue that if someone was born a female, they will always be a woman, with she/her pronouns, or that a born male will always be a man with he/him. These people were most likely raised away from ideas of gender flexibility and when saw it in other places, accused it of being false. This is so deeply incorrect. Gender does not have to match birth sex. Gender does not have to match pronouns. Gender does not have to match looks. Gender does not have to match a voice. Gender does not have to match clothes or styles. Gender does not have to match a name. Gender does not have to explain itself, and doesn’t owe anyone an apology. Gender is who, not what, not how, not why, and not a choice for the sake of choosing. Gender is a choice to be yourself. Some correct, respectful examples of gender/sex/pronoun usage: If a man is born female and wishes to use they/them pronouns; they are a man If a woman is born female and wishes to use he/they pronouns; they are a woman / he is a woman If a demi-girl is born intersex and wishes to use she/he pronouns; she is a demi-girl / he is a demi-girl If a man is born male and wishes to use he/him pronouns; he is a man If a demigender person is born male and wishes to use all pronouns (she/he/they); she is demigender / he is demigender / they are demigender Well, How Can You Tell? Hey, zero shame in asking. In fact, it’s kind and considerate when you meet someone to ask them, “Just to be respectful, what’s your gender and preferred pronouns?”. After they answer, they’ll most likely ask for yours, so be prepared to answer that for them, too. Gender cannot be limited any longer by ignorant minds. It’s not ‘what you were born as’. That makes the same amount of sense as saying a dead cow is the same as it was when it was a calf. Stay educated and listening.

You can't know without asking

mylesnewman:

Also, the percent of intersex people of the world's population is currently between 0.05% and 1.7%, but it changes, so I was unspecific on purpose

NineTailedFox:
