The Delusion of Gender Dysphoria

Post by SubjectiveAnalyst on Mon Jul 03, 2017 9:14 pm

A rather forceful, emotional movement is spreading like wildfire through the United States, as many claim to be inherently of a gender which is "non-binary". Though this may seem to be more of a personal matter, as opposed to a sociopolitical talking point, it has managed to become the latter. According to many involved in gender studies, gender is determined almost solely by the individual, as it is a 'social construct'. Yet, is something that is directly linked to basic biology a social construct to be interpreted freely? This fallacy has become a serious matter to many individuals, and has wrongfully caught the attention of elected officials. The uprising of gender fluency is absolutely irrational, if not completely inaccurate.
    Many on the left side of the ideological spectrum have been expressing extreme approval for the flawed concept of one's gender being completely detached from one's biological sex (most likely for political gain), and have even been compelled to attempt conversion of political opponents. Yet, through analysis of the meanings gender and sex, it is blatantly obvious that they are directly related.
    Sex: |
1 :  either of the two major forms of individuals that occur in many species and that are distinguished respectively as female or male especially on the basis of their reproductive organs and structures

    Gender: 2 a :  sex | the feminine gender).
    In largely credible sources, such as the Marriam Webster Dictionary (used to collect these definitions), 'sex' is stated as a contribution to the definition of gender, which signifies a direct correlation between the two. In a variety of other sources-such as the Oxford Dictionary-multiple gender identities being publicly used are acknowledged, but gender is still not completely separated from sex, irrespective of fragments which sample the most common uses of the term 'gender'.
"Gender: Either of the two sexes (male and female), especially when considered with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones. The term is also used more broadly to denote a range of identities that do not correspond to established ideas of male and female."
    With that direct correlation in mind, please consider how contradictory it is to suggest one is inherently a different gender, then when sex is brought into the picture,
state that sex and gender are separate statuses. If one's gender is to change and their sex is to remain the same, the two statuses conflate with one another, especially considering that the Oxford definition of sex suggests that there is not a single force contributing to one's sex, rather it is mostly biological, but manages to be largely influenced by social behavior and social status. If one status is determined largely by  social behaviors and the other is determined almost solely by biology, then wouldnt having traits commonly associated with the other gender cause one's sexual identity to change as well? Deflecting the points made by the opposition to gender dysphoria simply proves the point that said thing is a flawed concept.
    Stating that one belongs to a 'non-binary' gender group is pure conjecture, considering there are no historically accountable cases for another sex besides hermaphroditism, which is also quite a misleading medical term. Though many are born with multiple reproductive organs, only one tends to function properly and the other is classifiable as a birth defect or growth. No child has ever been born with both reproductive systems properly working-simply because of lack of space within the human body. There is always a dominant organ which can be used to classify one's sex, and in effect, their gender.
    Of course, as the rise of the radical gender theorists has begun, there has been a barrage of demands to assimilate to peoples' preferred pronouns. Though it is widely acclaimed that countless of the demanded pronouns have historical backgrounds, none of the pronouns are associated with physical behavior, rather, they are associated with income class systems from the time of their origin. There are no citable historical records of a non-binary gender or sex existing, and it is absurd to suggest there is.
    Perhaps rather than attempting to change and alter the reality of society to suit one's struggles to discover their self-identity, organizations could be created which allow people with alleged "gender-dysphoria" to go through a program that helps them to realize which gender they are.
    Though this is a complex issue, sometimes complex issues have simple solutions.
