Anonim whispered: Females have XX chromosomes. Males have XY chromosomes. Therefore there are ONLY TWO GENDERS! Learn basic biology.

This may be the one of the worst answers I have ever seen to an anon from someone I follow.

I agree that the response was super weak actually. The OP should have explained it rather than talk down the anon.

Simply put, common chromosome combinations include XX (female) and XY (male). That gives the two distinct sexes, not genders.

However, there can be some mix ups in sex chromosomes that can lead to:

  • XXX - Aka Superfemale. It’s basically a trisomy that gives them 47 chromosomes. You can read up on it here.
  • XXY - AKA Klinefelter syndrome, it affects males and causes a reduction in the size of their sexual organs. Read here.
  • XYY - This also affects males. More reading here.
  • X - AKA Turner Syndrome, where females are missing one of their x chromosomes. Click.

There is also:

  • XX male syndrome
  • XX gonadal dysgenesis
  • 48, XXYY syndrome
  • 49, XXXXX syndrome
  • 49, XXXXY syndrome
  • 48, XXXX syndrome

I’m not going to give you links about those because you get the idea.

So that covers the genetics part that encompasses the various types of sex.

Now, on a hormonal level, men and women have the same basic hormones that affect the production of testosterone and oestrogen/progesterone. These hormones not only affect sexual reproduction and sexual receptivity, it also affects behavior.

Before we delve into this, let’s look at the definition of gender. As stated by the Oxford Dictionary, it is:

ughsocialjustice:

Oh, you’re that Anon from the other day, who wasn’t loved by their dad and mum, right? But I love you. I don’t know you, but I love you with all my heart and compassion. I kind of pity you, you are the kind of person who makes me feel like when I see a stray dog on the street. You seem so lonely and desperate, like the dog. The dog’s stomach is empty, and you also have something empty inside, but it is either your heart or your head, or both, we just don’t know. We don’t know, because you won’t open up.

But it’s not your fault. Life wasn’t kind with you. You are a victim. I know. You keep this hard shell around yourself. Like an egg, that hasn’t yet hatched, because you never got warmth.

I would give you warmth, and yes, I even do right now. I send you a thousand, no, a million hugs until the end of your days. Be loved, and live a happy life, I’m going to be thinking of you and hope that you will be able to become a wiser and more open-hearted person.

Stay strong, dear Anon. <3

-The Non-Binary One

The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones)

So, using logic, if there are varying genetic mutations in regards to sex chromosome combination and the level of hormones in your body is varying on an individual basis, it is easily deduced, through common thought, that people may not always feel (psychology and hormones work together through neuronal-hormone junctions) that their gender is the same as their biological sex.

Not to mention, scientists have found, in a a study a couple of years back, that there is a genetic link to gender identity. This is the article from 2008 and I’m sure that if you looked up the particular publication you can go through their results and discussion. (article here).

So, on top of all this knowledge, I would really like for people to start educating others rather than treating them like shit.

Thanks for the useful stuff.

Please read my other posts and tell me how I never answer anything and always treat everyone like shit. Also, I don’t think this anon wanted to be educated (I guess it was the same one as a few days ago, who said the same things.) they just keep sending me hate for being non-binary, because they don’t understand it, and they repeatedly refuse to be at least a tiny bit educated.

The abandoned Bislingen mountain lodge in Norway stands empty on an icy mountainside, this abandoned ski lodge is being reclaimed by the frozen environment it was built to serve. Built 691m above sea level in 1967, the lodge has been left open to the frosty elements since it was left to ruin six years ago.

do not fall in love with people like me.
i will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. i will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. and when i leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.
