Genderless option.

Postby Pondero » July 9th, 2017, 10:50 am

A woman in BC called Doty wants her child (she is the mother) to be genderless on the birth certificate. Other Provinces are cosidering the change to accommodate these wierdos, who love publicity.
My problem with the change is why do it at all, assuming the baby has male or female genitals , and if they have both then the doctors advice should be at least considered.
After all one sex or the other has to be decided for the baby, who cannot chose him/herself.How is the baby to know what he/she is?
Make a decision, the normal one based on sex organs and let the kids grow up. I feel very sorry for any child who has a mother who supports the genderless option.

The darkness grows and the gradual descent into collective insanity is now gathering pace at an alarming rate, at least in our societies in decline. (Others are waiting in the wings...)

Needless to say, a distraught mother giving birth to a child in the bombed-out ruins of Aleppo or Mosul or in the squalid shantytowns and favelas of the great overprivileged overfed massive conurbations of the world isn't overly concerned about toying with the gender of her child. She just hopes and prays that her child will survive.

This article on lunacy fits right into this discussion.

Occasionally genderless would be the right option as some are born with their gender hard to define.

Yes I agree - ideally should be left blank until such time as gender is identified because it is difficult to sort out later on. Though it is very unusual, it happens more often than we think!

However, the vast majority of people have a girl or a boy so no need for "genderless" to be put on certificate. 'Boy' or 'girl' is accurate in most cases.
