    “Scotland is on course to become the first part of the UK to create a legally-recognised third gender for people who do not identify as either male or female, after the plans were backed by the public.

    The majority of those taking part in a Scottish Government consultation on the issue said they thought people should be given the legal right to identify as “non-binary”.

    Two thirds also agreed that the age at which people can apply to legally change their gender should be lowered from 18 to 16, with the process made simpler and easier. “

    Generally speaking, I'm very open minded and Liberal about how people chose to live their lives. However, this is bullshit.

    There's male and there's female. I'm comfortable with people identifying as the opposite gender. But gender neutral? * off.

    I don't really get it either but I think itd be very interesting to dive into the mind of someone who does identify as such. Its one of these things that is hard to wrap your head around unless you experience it yourself I guess

    Have you read any of the studies on gender identity?

    It’s basic science you are either one or the other, they can have all the studies they want but it doesn’t alter that fact. And these crazy * raising their children that way aren’t helping matters.

    Disregarding the fraction of percents of medical anomalies there are males and there are females.

    If you are a guy who wants to chop his * off and wear a wig or if you’re a bird who wants a husky voice and a hairy * more power to you but don’t try and force the concept that there is a gender spectrum on normal, sane, people with common sense.

    I’d like to see a study into the mental health of the gender spectrum pushers.

    A concept you are well aware of.

    If you don’t read the studies then you’re being willfully ignorant. Up to you but you’re eventually going to look as stupid as racists from the 19th century do now.

    What an absolutely stupid comparison. There are a plethora of races, there are not a plethora of genders. End of story.

    Regarding mental health:

    “The transgender identity has long been associated with poor mental health, particularly the diagnoses of “gender identity disorder” and “gender dysphoria.” However, the World Health Organization is actively working towards declassifying transgender identity as a mental disorder, a change partially prompted by a recent study uncoupling the mental and physical health problems experienced by transgender people from their gender identity. Rather, those who had suffered ailments could vastly attribute their afflictions to societal stigma, discrimination, and violence.

    Aye, because we all know typing “end of story” wins an argument. It’s not a comparison of gender and race, it’s a comparison of how stupid people looked then and how stupid they’re going to look in the future.

    You are a * idiot, Paul.

    Admittedly not mate.

    I just can't comprehend why we need, or why we entertain a so-called "non-binary" option. This is what opens the doors to folk to start identifying as a toaster. Mental.

    They’re worth a read. There is a lot of nonsense that surrounds these discussions but there is definitely a discussion to be had.
