There are options outside of they/them as well. I know several people who use ze/zer, for example.

This isn't really an argument you can make in this "oh why does it matter" blase attitude when you have actual governments putting this pronoun into law. And calling me miss is just biologically inconsistent with your grammar. You could make the argument to use these as insulting terms, but pronouns should really be tied to biology or else you end up with a society too afraid to greet one another. This might seem autistic but I think its important and I really couldn't care less who disagrees.

So how do we account for the population that is neither male nor female. They don't fit into either box you propose, so isn't it logical to create an alternative term? New words are invented and legitimized on a consistent basis, seems you are just uncomfortable with identity politics in general.

That was the point.

Seriously? Gender is different from sex in the sense that it's a mental thing instead of physcial. This is why people say gender instead of sex in these discussions. Also have you never met a person who was androgynous without trying? If you confuse their gender and they correct you, what is your basis for dismissing that afterwards? You're demonstrating a poor understanding of gender so I wouldn't go with your gut feeling over someone's word tbh.

I'm not uncomfortable with identity politics whatsoever I think y'all are mistaking me for some enlightened skeptic centrist type. And are we talking biologically intersex or sociological bull****.
