It was bound to come back and bite the right-on crowd and feminists in the bum one day. Not seen any comments from the resident AB hand wringers yet so perhaps they can explain?

To make it fair you've got to have 5 categories
1 - Born female still female
2 - Born male still male
3 - Born female now male
4 - Born male now female
5 - Mixed

That's just sport. How that translates to what toilets, changing rooms, hospital wards, army barracks you can use and every other thing in society that uses some notion of male and female to categorise people is anyone's guess.
Totally agree Lud.
Using Ludwig's categories, presumably the 'gender fluid', those who decide on a day to day basis how they choose to identify, will be able to choose from 1, 2 or 5?

As others have pointed out, it becomes even more farcical if you try and factor 'fluidity' into the equation.
I can't help asking if modified men are considered to be women, but are obviously different from real women, where does that leave real women? Bit of a tangled web ....
TT what about a case where a male has XXY chromosomes?
Klinefelter syndrome, also known as the XXY condition, is a term used to describe males who have an extra X chromosome in most of their cells. Instead of having the usual XY chromosome pattern that most males have, these men have an XXY pattern.
Question Author
XXY/XYY are very rare, they need assessing as now.
