The World Needs More Than Three Genders

Hands in Heart Shape

Barbara J. King recently wrote a groundbreaking op-ed article for NPR.org and shed some much needed light on an important aspect of TS culture. You can read the whole article titled Why We Need More Than Three Genders to get a sense of the hope and inspiration that comes from her work.

Discussing everything from hermaphrodites to transvestites and post-op transgender individuals, Ms. King makes a compelling argument for the fact that gender is no longer a “binary mode” like the male or female dichotomy that most people still seem to expect. Moving the world to a new perspective where individuals establish their own gender and the world tries to make sense of their identity makes much more sense than clinging to the tradition of setting aside a certain set of labels and then demanding everyone find the one closest to their own identity before accepting it as if it fit correctly… when all too often it hardly tells the whole story, or fails to capture the reality of what’s in the human psyche.

From birth certificates to locker rooms, fashion, first names, and even colors – the world puts too much time into stamping each individual with an M for male or an F for Female. In a sophisticated community it is possible, and in fact easy to add LGBT labels or to take the next evolutionary step by not using any labels at all! That gets proven each and every day by forward-thinking TS dating members online. People open to experiencing each other as who they are, rather than as who the world expects them to be.

When biology, dating, thousands of human examples, and even an NPR reporter all demonstrate the fact that there are more than three genders in existence, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world finally notices. Have hope in your heart because it’s an exciting time to be a transgender individual or one of the millions of gender-identified people who love us!
