Return to 18 genders (idea)

[Gender rebellion] [feminists] suggest that, when biological [sex] (male or female), [gender] ([masculine] or [feminine]), and [sexual orientation] are taken into account there are really, eighteen genders, not the two that are traditionally considered [appropriate] in Western Society. They are:

  • homosexual masculine [female]
  • bisexual masculine female
  • heterosexual masculine female
  • homosexual androgynous female
  • bisexual androgynous female
  • heterosexual androgynous female
  • homosexual feminine female
  • bisexual feminine female
  • heterosexual feminine female
  • [homosexual] masculine male
  • bisexual [masculine] male
  • [heterosexual] masculine male
  • homosexual androgynous [male]
  • bisexual [androgynous] male
  • heterosexual androgynous male
  • homosexual [feminine] male
  • bisexual feminine male
  • heterosexual feminine male

Some other [gender rebellion] [radical feminists] argue, however, that this system is no better than traditional [binary] understanding of [gender] because it still catagorizes people, which limits their ability to [self-actualize] and be recognized as [fully] [human].
