On Gender identity....

Perhaps the most exhausting argument I’ve ever had with a Liberal was on the topic of Gender Identity. I’m of the opinion that gender is determined by sex organs on a macro scale or chromosomes on a micro scale. That train of thought essentially terminates thusly:

1.> If you have male genitalia, your gender is male. If you have female genitalia, your gender is female.

2.> If you have both, or neither genitalia, you suffer from a genetic affliction and are thus a rare exception.

3.> If you have male genitalia and self-identify as a female, you are wrong. There might be a medical reason for your confusion, or you may just be a conflicted idiot, but you are wrong. The same could be said for the opposite case of women self-identifying as men.

I understand that my opinion is neither expert, nor politically correct. I’m not a total idiot, however, and I do have a modicum of critical thinking ability. For example, I can deduce without much trouble that the dictionary re-definition of “gender” , as being separate from the “sex” of a person, is semantic warfare for political gain.

It goes a little like this:

Step 1: Redefine the meaning of gender.

Step 2: Cite the new definition as evidence for your case.

Step 3: All the Liberal sheep just had their mind blown and sign your petition to let your 5 year old son use the girl’s bathroom at school.

So as of today, I have decided to divorce myself from the Human race. If we can define ourselves based on “feelings of identity” alone, then I’m no longer a Human, perhaps not even a mammal. Humanity has grown stupid. I don’t “feel” stupid, so clearly I must not be human.

So, I’ve decided to seek special status. I know from the outside it may appear like I’m an endothermic vertebrate with nipples, belonging to a genetic heritage unique to the species Homo sapiens sapiens, but I don’t “feel” like I belong in that community.

I have been watching a lot of HBO lately. Maybe I’ll become a Vampire instead. Even better, I’ll become a Pureblood Sith Lord. Yes…..Most excellent.

Here is my Sith Code:

”Truth is a lie, there is only Semantics. Through Semantics, I gain “evidence”.
Through “evidence”, I gain political currency. Through political currency, I gain victory.
Through my victory, your sanity suffers.”

Alright, as it stands, this is the current definition of species:

Species – A fundamental category of taxonomic classification, ranking below a genus or subgenus and consisting of related organisms capable of interbreeding. [1]

Here is my suggested amendment:

Species – A relative category of ambiguous classification, ranking pretty much anywhere and consisting of possibly related organisms capable of interbreeding….or not.

Let’s all petition Websters to get this change added to the Dictionary. My dignity and civil liberty depend on it. Here is the link: http://www.merriam-webster.com/help/faq/addword.htm?&t=1391697065

Very Respectfully,
