Just to preface I don't give a fuck what you do so long as it doesn't affect/hurt me. "Don't Tread On Me" Also I've been writing this for like the past week but I finally need to just submit it to turn off my computer so some parts might not be finished.
For the most part I don't care what transgender people do, their business doesn't involve me so it isn't mine. Transgender people are just like gay people in my mind; go do your thing, IDGAF. The only problem I have is when arguments come into play about having to use someone else's pronouns. Its really frustrating when a conversation has to be put on hold to argue about what pronouns you should be using about someone else. Mostly because pronouns are usually used when the subject isn't around ["Did you see Kim's new fidget spinner?" "ya, he's been getting a lot lately"].
I personally believe pronouns should be used to refer to someone's sex and not their gender. There are masculine females, but that is what they are masculine females. In a conversation we wouldn't refer to them as him.
Honestly I'd be for neutral pronouns, but have them used for all parties and not just the "3rd gender". Although I also think the current ones that are suggested "zim/zher" are kind of awkward to use. That may be because we aren't used to them, but I still think it would be nearly impossible to get Americans to change and use them; just look at how the metric conversion is going for a comparison of change.
Sex is for reproduction, It provides us almost no benefit for survival other than reproduction. If sex wasn't pleasuring then we as a species probably would die out or be in fear of dieing out (See Pandas). In terms of evolution logically thinking transgender/homosexuallity could be seem as a degration. After all evolution just tries to throw everything it has to see what works, and natural selection does it's job and weeds out anything that failed. So in an older society transgender/homosexuallity would die out simpliy because they produce no offspring. In modern society however we don't require large numbers of people to survive so the few transgender/homosexual people we have don't affect us, what's more important now is the growth and development of children, not number of children. So with all of society's transgender/homosexual people they could be of help through adoption.
Although at the end I think it is a bit of a tricky thing to claim that transgender/homosexuallity negatively or positively effect our evolution as a species.
I never understood this, you're going into the bathroom to take a shit/piss who cares if someone of another gender/sex is there? As others have said pervs will be pervs and if a coupe wants to have sex in the bathroom I don't think much is going to stop them.
Something I think most people are missing here is the discussion about locker rooms. I think this is where the separation of genders for bathrooms really started. In a big locker/shower room there are going to be naked people changing or taking showers, so to reduce pervy looks and basic sexaul harrasment we seperate the genders. But with transgender and homosexual this has made the separation be less effective. What do we do in this situation? I remember in high school we had to change in an open locker room to get ready for PT. Should we just get rid of open locker rooms entirely? Should we just combined them like restrooms? I don't really have an opinion for this, I just see this as a bigger problem for the homosexal/transgender arguement.
