Posted:     Post subject: Language perpetuates "sexism" ...

Here/Below is an extract of an email I just sent to "PN" ...
allô ...

I'm aware that PN might begin to find "hearing from" me meaningless,
but that is up to PN ... anyway ...

3) The PN TrP "updateprofile" page (& TG) language/terminology (in general) is "incorrect"»

"Please use your biological gender OR the gender you self-identify with if you prefer.
You can enter additional transgender related information further in the registration process."


There is no such thing as "biological gender". The correct terminology is "genetic sex".
I/People am/are not a MALE or FEMALE ...
(any more than I/People am/are a Caucasian or a "...")
MALE or FEMALE (or intersexed) ... that is someone's "gene-sex" ...
PN TrP ignores Intersex.
To be correct PN could/should give 3 options for "gene-sex"

Furthermore, I am not a "man" - (just) because my "gene-sex" is male ...

The following is incorrect»
ADONI is a:
Man looking for a Woman

My S-- is male. My gender is (so-called) TG (as opposed to CIS ...)
Does PN (search functionality) consider TrP members
who say their gene-sex is male to be women?

ADONI is a:
"TransGendered" genetic male seeking a "woman"; i.e., CIS-female or TG-male
would be correct ...

... whatever ...
thanks for listening ...
Bon week-end ...
Also see my post in "Current Events" for more on "sexism", SVP ...

I am not running a poll because ... among other reasons ... "Devil's advocates"
will/would just vote contrary to what they think my vote would be ...

... whatever ...
Bon week-end ...
