The one thing that Political Correctness cannot change

Humanity is divided into 2:
Male
Female
Which again is divided into 2:
Adult
Child

Unfortunately, there are those in the world that want one's sexual orientation to be a sub division of humanity.

Trying to get my head around political correctness:
We have:
Manhood
Womanhood.

Can't see humanhood working. :-)

Can you?

True, but even there, either one of the sexes will be more prominent than the other.

Might need a scanning electron microscope.

Humans actually come in XX, XY, XXY, XYY

IIRC there are some fish that can be both serially.

I do suggest that before making pronouncements like this that seem more suited to a sermon, that you read up on the actual scientific, biological basis of gender and how it can often become complicated.

Here's a very good article from one of the premiere scientific journals to get started.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
---Margaret Mead

Nice start to the article. :-)

A 45 year old female pregnant. So she had both male & female chromosomes. Still female though.

Well here we now have three genders.
Han, Hon and Hen.
Yes, a new word, Hen, for the third gender.
In English that is He, She... but I don't think there is word for the third gender yet in English.
Perhaps a grammatically problem when in English you have only 3 genders, maskulinum, femininum, neutrum, but in the Scandinavian languages we have 4 genders, maskulinum, femininum, neutrum, reale:)

Que?
Neutrum, of the Latin neuter - "neither (of the two)"
What you mention is called an article.
"A" table is an indefinite article
"The" table is a definite article

I entered those terms into Google translate. That's what came up. As for Reale, it knocked off the last e & gave the Swedish for chair. :-)

Hehe:)
It's funny that we humans learn to speak already when we are only about 3 or 4 years old and knows all the grammer.

CRUMBS! Scottish Parliament staff BANNED from saying 'gingerbread man'’ at Holyrood coffee shop because it’s not gender neutral – as they rename biscuits ‘gingerbread people’

But what about a 'gingerbread man' in kilt.
