    It can be very confusing.

    Surely a person's gender is defined by their physical body parts; their sexuality may not be typical of , nor compatible with their physical gender, but for most people it will be within 'acceptable' limits for most people to be defined as male or female.

    It is absolutely normal for a child to go through a phase of being 'gender neutral' or of preferring the company of other people of the same sex to play with . The same children mostly turn out to be heterosexual in adulthood. Children and teenagers have enough to contend with, without having to worry about which of the alleged 13+ gender categories they fall into. Let children be children, let them all play with 'boys toys' and 'girls toys'. Encourage them to be confident and happy and tolerant of others. Leave all the gender identification stuff until they are mature enough to make their own decisions.
    Why does everyone need to be labelled as belonging to a particular group anyway? Everyone is unique in their own way - why can't people accept that and say ," This is me . I am who I am"?

    Chat rooms may have been the cause of this as some chatters have no idea what gender they are or what nick-name they have chosen, they change all the time.
    Not mentioning any names lol. :rolleyes:

    That's why i made the distinction between gender and sexual orientation. We are born with different body parts, which initially defines whether we are boy or girl . Our sexual orientation is , as you quite rightly say, influenced by society. Yes people will be labelled by others Ideally, parents and adults should encourage children to understand that labels are not necessarily an accurate reflection of the total person.

    ok, maybe i've muddled up the words. What I meant was that we are born with certain body bits that identify us physically as 'boy' or 'girl'. Although there are probably some other innate features (intellectually based? hormonal? I don't know) which may lead us to identify with different groups,how we develop from there is more based on environmental factors.

    Some good discussion here. But no one has answered the question 'Why' and 'All of a sudden'.!

    I'm 53 years old. When i was a kid growing up in the 70's we didn't see this.

    We never 'Knew' of any 'Transgender' people.!

    I have nothing against transgender people at all.

    Just why Now, and why so many?
