Your Biological Sex Determines Your Gender

Human beings have two sexes: female and male.

When a baby is born, we look at their genitalia to determine what sex they are. If the baby has a clitoris, vulva and vagina, they are female. If the baby has a penis and testes, they are male. Mother Nature only creates two sexes because we are human beings and we need those two sexes to create more of us.

Sometimes things go wrong like a female being born with a larger than normal clitoris or a male being born with an extra tiny penis. Some take it to mean that that person is a different sex but that isn't true. Clitorises come in different lengths and widths. It doesn't matter how long a clitoris is, as long as sperm and urine doesn't come out of it, it's a clitoris. Penises come in different lengths and widths. It doesn't matter how short a penis is, as long as sperm and urine comes out of it, it's a penis.

Sometimes a baby is born with the correct external genitalia but their internal reproductive organs are those of the other sex. For example, a female may be born with female genitalia but have gonads internally which are male reproductive organs. Some take this to mean they are a third sex. That isn't true. Nature only makes two sexes. Just because someone doesn't fit the norm does not mean they are a third sex. For example, if someone is born with only one arm that doesn't mean they aren't human. It means something went wrong with that person and they were born with one arm instead of two.

When you look at someone how can you tell what their internal reproductive organs are? You can't which is why we use genitalia to determine sex. Even if the genital sex organs are not typical female or typical male, a person must fit into one of the two sexes. In order to conceive children only a male and a female will do. No other combination will work so we must know who is female and who is male strictly for reproductive purposes.

Humans like to complicate things rather than acknowledge their simplicity. I guess it makes us feel like we are superior to other beings. We look for reasons to make ourselves special and not always in a good way. When we look at things simply, we know that there are only two sexes and that those two sexes are needed for reproduction. How we make it complicated is we take those two sexes and create genders. We create girl and boy. We then take girl or boy and make their life hell by adding a whole bunch of rules to being a girl and to being a boy. It's not enough to say this person is female and that's that. Oh no, we say this person is female so that means her gender is girl, which means she has to dress this way, she has to act this way, she has to be paid less than a man, she has to be more passive than a boy, she has to be nice, she has to be sexy etc.

If only humans would just accept things as they are rather than trying to prove how smart we are by complicating everything. It's simple. There are two sexes: female and male. There are two genders based on those two sexes: woman and man. Done.
