Gold Coast Comm Games - is this political correctness gone mad?

Post by Red on Sun 07 Jan 2018, 08:18

http://www.news.com.au/sport/commonwealth-games/commonwealth-games-volunteers-confused-by-politically-correct-directions/news-story/f0f9ff6df88c5444e0973f03573e2402

Apparently the terms boys and girls, and ladies and gentlemen now cause offence for those who don't see themselves as fitting into these particular categories.

Lately at work I've been told that there are at least ten genders and more being discovered every day.

No wonder some say the world is becoming too complex for many.

I always see it written in oz as LGBTQI+

The plus refers to the new gender identities waiting to be invented.

Supporting and protecting those with unconventional identities is fair enough. But trying to remove the entire concept of gender from society for the benefit of a very small number of people is just going to extremes.

Commonwealth Games boss announces all events will be gender neutral

by Emmis Tilton - Leave a Comment

The move will see men and women compete in the same events and coincides with the decision to ban the use of the words “Ladies in Gentleman” from being spoken by volunteers and officials.

A spokesman said this was the next logical step following a ban on the words people are allowed to use in public.

“We wanted to take this thing to it’s natural conclusion and get rid of gender altogether.”

“This way it’s impossible to offend anyone”

Feminist writer, Clementine Ford, tweeted that it was a historic decision and helped bridged the gap between the sexes.

“I don’t even understand how this is still a thing. I mean it’s 2018 for Christs sake.”

“Men and women are equal and should compete equally”

“I can’t wait to see all those strong women get out there and out throw those shot puts”

How long before a 3rd set of events is added to Games and Championships - where "Neutrals" compete?? You could see hairy, low voiced "chicks" racing, throwing, shooting, leaping, etc against petite handed, newly lunchboxed "blokes" and dickless, titless, vagina-less things, and xenomorphs.

This is Emmis' second best effort so far; I think this earlier one may have slipped by a few:

An overview of the gender identities now part of our gender fluid world.


Woman: A person born as a female, and who identifies as female.

Man: A person born as a male, and who identifies as a male.

Transgender Man: A person who was assigned female at birth, but now identifies as a man. Some trans people choose to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Others prefer not to, but still identify as a different gender.

Transgender Woman: A person who was assigned male at birth, but who identifies as a woman. As above, some trans people choose to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Others prefer not to, but still identify as a different gender.

Trans person: This can mean transsexual or transgender. A transsexual is a person who emotionally and psychologically feels that they belong to the opposite sex.

Trans Man: A trans man is someone who was assigned female at birth, but now identifies as a man.

Trans Woman: A person who was assigned male at birth, but who identifies as a woman

Female to Male: This term is often abbreviated to ‘FTM’ and refers to a transsexual or a transgender man.

Male to Female: This term is often abbreviated to ‘FTM’ and refers to a transsexual or a transgender female.

Transsexual: A person who emotionally and psychologically feels that they belong to the opposite sex. Transsexuals are people who transition from one sex to another, usually through dress, hormone therapy, etc.

Cisgender: A person who identifies with the gender of which they were born. For example, if someone is born as a female and identifies as a woman.

Cis Female: Cis is short for cisgender. So a cisgender female is a female who identifies as a woman.

Cis Male: Cis is short for cisgender. A cisgender male is a male who identifies as a man.

Gender Non-Conforming: A person who does not identify with either the male of female genders.

None Gender: A person who does not identify with any gender in particular.

Non-Binary: A person who does not identify entirely with either the female or male genders. They may identify somewhere on a spectrum.

Neutrois: Neutrois is a non-binary gender identity which is considered to be a neutral or null gender.

Genderfluid: A person who does not identify entirely with either the female or male genders.

Genderqueer: An overarching term used to describe people who do not identify exclusively as either male or female.

Demigender: This term, (demi means half) is an umbrella term for nonbinary gender identities that have a partial connection to a certain gender.

Demigirl: A person (can also be called a demiwoman or a demifemale) who identifies partially with being a woman or has feminine characteristics. They may have been assigned female as birth, but they could also have been born as a male.

Demiboy: A person (can also be called a demiman or demimale) who identifies partially with being a man or masculine characteristics. They may have been assigned male at birth, but they could also have been born as a female.

Agender: This literally means ‘without gender’, so a person who doesn’t identify with any gender.

Intergender: Intergender people have a gender identity that is in the middle between the binary genders of female and male, and may be a mix of both.

Intersex: A person who is born with the reproductive anatomy of both a man and a woman. For example, they might appear to be female on the outside, but have mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside. These people were previously referred to as hermaphrodites, but that term is considered rude and outdated.

Pangender: A person who identifies as more than one gender.

Poligender: Translates to ‘many genders’. A person who identifies as more than one gender.

Omnigender: Translates to ‘all genders’. A person who identifies as more than one gender.

Bigender: Translates to ‘two genders’. A person who identifies as both male and female genders. Some bigender people have two distinct male and female personas.

Androgyne: A person who doesn’t identify with either gender. They are both feminine and masculine.

Androgyny: The combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. Androgyny can apply to many things - someone’s gender identity, sexual identity, and even fashion.

Third Gender: People who identify as neither a man nor a woman. Some cultures refer to some of their people by a third gender.

For example, in Samoafa’afafines are male at birth, but if a family had more boys than girls and needed more women to help with housework, they male children would be raised as a fa’afafine.

Trigender: Translates to three genders. A person who shifts between the male, female and third genders.
