Out of the Blue

AP stylebook now allows the "singular they" in some instances. I got excited over some semi-official approval of a gender-neutral pronoun, but this is apparently only for cases where the subject identifies with neither gender. That's all well and good, but English still could use a gender-neutral pronoun for other cases, and I will continue to use "they" or "them" for the purpose until we get one, even if its technically incorrect. If anyone has a problem with that, they can come and see me.

Sex is a very clear choice that causes no confusion. Physically, a person is either male or female.

Exactly when did you stop taking biology classes, because you just failed.

XX, XY, XXY, XXX, XXXX, XXXY, etc and so on. Our genes and chromosomes do all kinds of neat things you can't wrap your head around, apparently.

Also, people are confusing 'gender' and 'sex'. Two different things. When you see someone say "Gender is a social construct" they're closer to the facts than your inane babble above.

Gender is how society defines perceived masculine and feminine traits and assigns roles to them. Western "Christian" society tended to stick to whatever the bible dictated in order to define your worth as a person by your gender, but other cultures have had multiple gender identities.
