As political correctness continues to run rampant in our nation, it appears that children have not only been granted the right to identify which gender they relate to, but can now pick between 6 entirely different genders. That’s right, the American Sociological Association (ASA) has significantly loosened the definition of genders in which people can now claim to be.
The ASA has previously confined gender identities to fall between only three options – male, female, prefer not to answer. As PC soldiers have had their way, in a fight to be “tolerant” of everyone no matter their life choices, the ASA has expanded these identities to now include six options.
According to the Daily Caller:
Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named.
For those baffled by the option “Genderqueer,” the Gender Equity Resource Center defines this as, “A person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders” – you know, like a unicorn.
As if these weren’t enough to choose from, as noted above, the ASA has included the option of “other,” just in case you don’t identify with anything else they have listed. Also, the ASA has now given people the option to not only choose one, but “all that apply.”
