    Oh, I'm happy with the game I play, it's just tiring!

    I guess throwing a few kids into the mix didn't help with that, and I'm not sure the gift economy and a community that loves me will pay the bills and keep them happy, fed, daycare, clothes, birthday parties, miscellaneous shit here and there, doctor appointments, did I mention food?, toys, books, food, shoes, food, food...

    You may lack reading comprehension skills and have some extensive mental issues but I still love you. That was hilarious. :)

    Is it her reading comprehension that's lacking? Or your ability to put coherent thought into equally coherent word?

    Guilty as charged. The fact that more people on this forum are not bowing before you, oh mighty Lord REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, is driving me crazy.

    But spread your wings and fly! Fly and save the world from transgender confusion by insisting they invent a pronoun that doesn't at all reflect their identity when there are existing pronouns that do! THY WILL BE DONE IN SSO, AS IT IS IN NECKBEARDLAND!

    Just be warned, if you decide to stop fighting the urge to become one of my concubines, and you find me and introduce yourself as a woman, when I find out the truth, I'm going to have to dump you and break your heart. It wouldn't necessarily be because we have incompatible naughty bits though, it would be because you were dishonest with me. I'd touch another wiener before I'd ever share my life with a liar/false advertiser. Be what you are and be proud of it, just don't call yourself a Strandberg when you're actually a Kiesel. ;)

    Sex =/= gender

    It wasn't supposed to be harsh. They're both really nice guitars but totally different designs. Have I missed something?

    First Link (gender):
    either the male or female division of a species, especially as differentiated by social and cultural roles and behavior:

    Second Link (sex):
    either the male or female division of a species, especially as differentiated with reference to the reproductive functions.

    Where's that reading comprehension you were all on about a few posts back?

    Ever heard of the term newspeak? Ever read 1984? Why can't we make up new words instead of adding definitions to new ones? (Rhetorical question)
    Just think about it. ;)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspeak

    Doublespeak applies even better.

    And I'm sure that as the debate and discussion about these things continue, a definition about something that involves a part of the body we couldnt study nearly as well as we can today will probably be updated/amended to incorporate it.

    The only reason it's currently as such is because we a society have always said "this is a male (because of his sex), so he must be a male in gender as well ...because why not?!" and its never changed. Until now.

    The point is that the established definitions of sex and gender *are* different. Your mention of 1984 is a complete tangent to distract away from how you just tried to show that dictionary listed the two definitions as identical, only to show the exact opposite.

    You literally tried refuting MFB's post only to prove it.

    First of all, what's that got to do with your inability to proofread your own links well enough not to make an ass of yourself?

    Second, great sneaky edit from Animal Farm to 1984 avoiding doing the same thing again.

    Third, words often change and develop in definition as they become more or less useful. Maybe gender and sex used to have the same meaning, but today having two words to mean the same thing is redundant and one can be made more useful by adjusting it's definition.

    Finally, r/iamverysmart

    The primary and traditional definitions are identical. In a world where words mean lots of different things, productive communication is impossible unless one also predefines which meaning of a word they're expressing, which degrades discussion to a dismal level of efficiency. It's beyond retarded (To avoid offending those with Down's Syndroms, I guess I should state that I'm using the first definition here- citation:http://www.dictionary.com/browse/retarded).

    That's enough fun for one evening. You guys have fun!

    The primary definitions are different. As quoted. You're retired -- I'm sure you can find the time to make it all the way through the sentence.
