How to explain your answer to the gender question


I was filling out a survey intended to help a large team identify other folks who share the same interests and form smaller discussion groups. You didn’t have to answer all the questions but the motivating factor was increasing your chances of finding an interesting subgroup to work with.

The question:

Are you currently the same gender you were born as?

My answer:

This question confuses gender and assignment of sex based on the appearance of genitalia at birth. If you think that is a no brainer you aren’t using your brain. Get educated. If you aren’t open to getting to know someone better because of their answer to this question here’s some free advice – don’t contact them and tell them you admire them for being authentic but don’t. It’s a self serving attempt to make yourself feel better at their expense.

  1. Great answer. You should go on the Katy Couric Show with LaVerne Cox. My word would have been “self-aggrandizing” meaning “promoting oneself as being powerful or important” by asking such an moronic question.
