[Note: As is my custom, I briefly search through the Internet for a fact or two before I write an article, and am especially focused on my responsibility to be as accurate as possible. This time, I was taken aback by what I discovered during the first five minutes of my research for this article. I then stopped my research and began to write the revision. (If you read the following paragraph you will understand why five minutes of research was ample time for my research.)
I found that there are at least 81 genders and counting. The number of genders climbed higher as I flipped from one source after another during those five minutes. The 81 genders were listed alphabetically, from Androgynous to Xanith. There is no gender listed whose title begins with Y or Z…at the moment!]
LGBTQIA+ facts and meaning remain ambiguous to many people, including LGBTQIA themselves. For example many LGBTQIA do not know that they are born LGBTQIA and that their gender is definitely genetic, not acquired, notwithstanding the opinions of some psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, biologists, and philosophers who think otherwise. Some LGBTQIA blame their progenitors for their anomaly, others to a traumatic experience early in life, and so on.
In any case, some LGBTQIA are even unaware of their sexual anomaly after puberty and others are aware of it well before puberty. There are many LGBTQIA who are deeply disturbed by their anomaly and many others who are not at all disturbed by it unless someone tells them that they should or must be disturbed, or unfortunately forced to adjust their anomaly to the overwhelming cisgender majority.
There are others who know they are not cisgender but fake it for a variety of reasons, including prostitution. Of course it is easier for females to fake their gender than it is for males because of the singular difference between
their respective physicality. The above mentioned alphabetical gender list strongly reflects the notion that LIGBTQIA need help from cisgender people to advance inclusiveness. The essentially same notion is reflected in the proliferation of pronouns, which is an assault on logic and language, as well as absurd. Yes, LIGBTQIA should be treated with respect, but not at the expense of culture, which must not be ‘cancelled.’ There is very little about gender about which LGBTQIA are unaware. In fact they are often very much aware of gender characteristics.
