I would like to discuss the topic of ‘gender.’
Gender is a term used in linguistics.
“In linguistics, grammatical gender is a specific form of noun-class system in which the division of noun classes forms an agreement system with another aspect of the language, such as adjectives, articles, pronouns, or verbs. This system is used in approximately one quarter of the world’s languages. In these languages, most or all nouns inherently carry one value of the grammatical category called gender; the values present in a given language (of which there are usually two or three) are called the genders of that language. According to one definition: “Genders are classes of nouns reflected in the behaviour of associated words.”
In other words, it does not apply to people. People have a sex – male or female. Nouns and/or verbs have gender depending on the language. It tells me that the girl is ‘la muchacha’ in Spanish as opposed to ‘el muchacha’, which is entirely wrong.
So the liberals have it right! Gender is a ‘social construct.’ However, the construct does not apply to people. You are either male or female. It’s genetic throughout every cell of your body. You have XX or YX. No amount of surgery will change that.
No such thing as a ‘trans-gender.’
