It has been some time since we had a census. The last such topics were somewhat too detailed, discouraging many people who didn't have time. Here, you only need to answer one thing.

1. Please answer the following single question truthfully.
2. If you are not sure, go somewhere private and check.
3. Biological facts rank above psychological ones.

I am deliberately not including a Don't Know/None of the Above/BADGER BADGER option. If you don't want to tell, don't vote. :)

The correct term is transexuals. Transvestites just dress up as the opposite sex.

Some transvestites actually believe they are the oppisate sex though, thus asking them to "Go To a Private Place and Check" isn't very nice, is it?

If you're not interested in the psychosocial aspect, you shouldn't call it gender. What you are asking for is people's sex. You're old enough to say that word now, you know.

Gender---The word gender describes the state of being male, female, or neither. Some languages have a system of grammatical gender (also known as noun classes); while a noun may be described as "masculine" or "feminine" by convention, this has no necessary connection to the natural gender of the thing described. Likewise, a wide variety of phenomena may have gendered characteristics ascribed to them, either by analogy to male and female bodies, such as with the gender of connectors and fasteners, or due to social norms, such as interpreting the color pink as feminine and blue as masculine. In social sciences, the word "gender" is sometimes used in contrast to biological sex, to emphasise a social, cultural or psychological dimension. The discipline of gender studies investigates the nature of sex and gender in a social context.

Sex---Sex refers to the male and female duality of biology and reproduction, a process in biological DNA that dates back 4.6 - 3.5 billion years. DNA links back in an unbroken series of sexual reproduction taking forward information to present day. The somewhat similar term gender has more to do with identity than biology. The concept is confined to organisms that reproduce sexually.

EDIT: Wikipedia. Sex is the right word.

Aran, making us complete the sentence rather than answer a question makes it look like we are giving our opinion on what you are. :P

If we are looking for one's approach/appeal of the game wouldn't looking for gender be more appropriate than sexing us anyway?

I can't change the poll question, so you're stuck with the incomplete sentence. The title has been fixed. (Gah, I'm used to saying "gender" to avoid "sex" for prudish reasons :rolleyes: )

On a belated note, I apologize for belittling the transvestites and transsexuals among us. Put in whatever you identify with most strongly.

Guys are always aware of the thing that makes them a guy.

Mr B: your post reminds me of something Cicero said: There's no statement so absurd that some philosopher hasn't said it. As if you could forget that you had a penis. Ain't gonna happen.

As are girls.

Hermaphrodyte is the correct term for someone who is both male as well as female. Androgynous, if you prefer, though as far as I know that comes from an old Semitic language, I think Babylonian. Asexual is the opposite (neither male nor female). Or tumtum for those of us who prefer old Semitic (this time, I think Hebrew).
