    I'm a little confused…. If you're transgendered wouldn't you just identify with the sex you identify as? female to male (MALE) /male to female (FEMALE)………what is this new option going to be. Transgendered or not, you're either a male or a female. what else is their to identify as?

    Re: kk – I don't really understand either…it's not like it forces you to choose the option you were born as, you can choose whichever of the two you feel reflects who you are…what other options could there be? I don't get what a "customized gender" is.

    Re: CanadianM

    Gender is a dichotomous category that has been created by are culture as just "male" and "female". Gender is actually a continuum. People have been debating on whether to change the two sex category to a five sex category so people will no longer be marginalized. In real life , sex is not as black and white as you think .

    5 sex categories( not all of them)
    1. Female
    2. Male
    3. Herms
    4. Merms
    5. Ferms
