Gender ?

gender |ˈdʒɛndə|

1 [ mass noun ] the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones): traditional concepts of gender.

The Biological subdivisions are:

Humans

/\

Male                                 Female

/\                                        /\

sexual  (asexual?)  (asexual?)  sexual

homo hetero                               homo hetero

The Politically Correct subdivisions are:

AfD Politician ridicules Green Party LGBTTQQ-Proposal by greeting Parliament in 60 different Genders

“Dear Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen…” Königer said at the podium.

However, it soon became obvious that his introduction was a little out of the ordinary.

“Dear homosexuals, dear lesbians, dear androgynes, dear bi-genders…” he said, continuing with another minute of greetings, including to “trans-men…trans-women…and trans-humans.”

One minute and 12 seconds after the start of his address, the parliament’s president asked if Königer “would allow an interposed question” – to which he promptly said “no.”

“I’m not done with my introduction yet, Mr. President. Sorry,” Königer said, prompting laughter from the audience and even a city official sitting on the panel behind him.

The AfD politician went on to speak for almost another minute, not forgetting to mention hermaphrodites and “two-spirit third genders.” He finally addressed the Green Party MPs behind the bill, and cheekily ‘respecting’ the gender with which they choose to identify by greeting all of them as “Mrs. or Mr.”

After that, it took Königer eight more words to make his point: “The AfD party rejects your proposal. Thank you.”

Update: Physically or biologically we thus have hetero or homo males and females. But in the imaginal world of the Ego we have 60 +. So I suppose it depends on whether one prefers delusion or reality.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
