How many genders are there?

(Wednesday blog)

I sometimes worry that too many of my readers are a bit old-fashioned and believe in such silly, outdated things as patriotism, community cohesion, controlled immigration, taking personal responsibility for one’s actions etc etc. So I feel that one goal of my modest little blog should be to open readers’ minds, to make them more ‘woke’, to help them adjust to all the wonderful ways society is changing for the better thanks to things like continual victimhood, globalism, uncontrolled immigration and the willful destruction of national cultures and identities by the internationalist ruling elites.

That leads me on to today’s Big Question for my readers – How many genders are there?

Yippee! More Twitter outrage

Former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies has just got into a bunch of trouble for tweeting:

Davies has previously opined:

These tweets have predictably resulted in a flood of abuse and accusations of “transphobia” and “hate speech” from the usual idiots who spend their lives trying to find something to be offended by. Here’s Owen Jones, who can always be relied on to wade into any argument with the most outraged ‘woke’ views:

Most other reactions from the ‘woke’ community are too obscene or extreme to be featured here.

How many genders are there?

This brings us back to today’s Big Question – How many genders are there?

UK Facebook users can now choose from one of 71 gender options, including asexual, polygender and two-spirit person:

Users can choose a different gender option from the previous male and female choices by selecting ‘custom’ in the gender tab of their profiles. I believe that originally there were only 50 gender options. But these were increased to 71 following howls of outrage by the people who self-identify with the other 21 gender options that Facebook didn’t include.

In addition, people who select a custom gender will now have the ability to choose the pronoun they’d like to be referred to publicly.

There’s even a book now which can explain to old-fashioned ‘binary’ fuddy-duddies the wonders of all the new genders which (as far as I know) didn’t exist just a few years ago:

See, with you learn something new every day!!!!!

    71 eh ! Thank you for sharing that David, that gives me one less thing to worry about today.
    I must be one of your old fashioned types as i agree with Sharon totally, whatever you want to identify as doesn’t bother me in the slightest, because after all, it’s you that has to explain it to your children …Oh hang on a minute !and i thought i was getting the hang of it.. bugger !
    To my old fashioned way of thinking is that you either give or receive, you can’t do both…… just sayin …

    I feel as though I have been transported to an alien planet when the views are the opposite of what they should be. We have more knowledge and better education than any time in our existence and yet civilisation seems to be going backwards. Sharron Davies is correct and to have another 70 options is madness. I blame the medical profession for the gender issue, without them it would get nowhere. I also blame them for the poor health of many people, they seem to support unhealthy lifestyles, but it is the state that is ultimately driving this. At least Boris seems to be looking at the nanny state. Taking responsibility for ourselves is no longer an option.

    I’ve never understood religious belief but it probably made a lot of sense in the past before we had any understanding of the natural world. But it has done some terrible things and still does. Now we have a new religion called human caused climate change. I cannot believe the nonsense churned out on a daily basis and through Mrs May the UK seems to be leading this. Free speech is clinging on by a thread.

    In my alien world I see empty streets and masses of people in shopping areas walking about like zombies looking at their phones. All looking for guidance that will never come. All expecting the state to provide their basic needs. How did we get to this situation? The state is going along with all the nonsense because it is easier to give in. The last thing any state needs is civil unrest. But once a state goes down this route it takes away responsibility from people and worse will come.

    Thank you David for your truly enlightening post! To think that I was taught some 60 plus years ago that in the mammalian and plant worlds male and female had to have some for of sexual congress in order to reproduce. Astonishing how mislead were my biology teachers! Irony apart, surely all this sexual/gender or whatever ambivalence is a probable consequence of over population? Medical intervention apart, if you only get together sexually with your own gender, you ain’t going to reproduce! Sharon Davies is absolutely right and it is deplorable that she should be abused for stating the obvious. As for that African allegedly female runner, she looks like a man, she stands like a man, she moves like a man. To expect those who are obviously female to compete with her on equal terms is ridiculous – and grossly unfair. Enough said.

    I remember a passage from the ‘Goon Show’ sixty plus years ago:

    “How many sexes are there?”
    “It’s not enough I say, go out and order some more!”

    I would like to think that Darwinism will kick in and all those who profess to be of ‘another gender’ than the conventional two will fail to reproduce and that this particular aberration will slowly die out. the problem is, the state of the government is such that these other ‘genders’ will be offered a way to reproduce artificially (i.e. IVF) and end up passing genes on through future generations.
    I never thought I’d say it but ‘ THE END IS NIGH’

    Im discombobulated and perhaps some of the social media police monitoring team reading this thread could enlighten us albeit via one of their covers. I personally have no problems with trans, each to their own and all that. I feel for anyone who genuinely feels they are in the wrong body. I feel for the people who want limbs removed ( Body Integrity Identity Disorder ) I am not a bad person. But there are only two genders, male and female. Why am I forced to think differently? Why do lefties complain about the gender pay gap when they dont even believe in gender?
