  • no! what do you think it might be if there was?
  • like gays?
  • yes and in this one bug species they exist
  • I think there's just 2. Sure there can be flukes and whatever else that cause different organs on the wrong body. Are you a woman with a penis or something? It's OK.
  • Well, some intersexuals with three gender-chromosomes (XXy) fight to be accepted as third human gender.
  • Some intersexuals with three gender-chromosomes (XXy) fight for being accepted as 3rd human sex.
  • Some species can reproduce asexually which I guess could be another gender. And some cannot reproduce at all but obviously they don't survive. I suppose it is possible to imagine a species in which three parents (or more) of different genders are required to produce offspring.
  • There's people who have both male and female sex organs. There's a word for it but i don't remeber what it is at the moment.
  • Isn't there already? Some people are born both male and female. I do believe they are called hermaphrodites.
  • What could that be. Male and female complete eachother. Adding a third would not fit.
  • Actually two more...one would be without a gender at all and the other with both. It could be at least theoratically possible...and perhaps the "choice" of some people in the future.
  • It is natural to think of gender as being a category with two options: male or female, but this is not the actual situation in the natural world. There are several ways to distinguish gender, and there are almost always situations that exist somewhere between what is conventionally considered male or female. Chromosome Differences: Typical males (46XY) have a Y for their 46th chromosome and typical females (46XX) have an X. However, there are individuals with other chromosomal combinations, including (a) an extra chromosome, as in Klinefelter's syndrome (47XXY), (b) a missing chromosome, as in Turner's syndrome (45X0), and various other combinations, including (47XYY), (47XXX), (48XXYY), (46XX/XY) mosaic, and other mosaics. Gonad Differences: Typical males have testes and typical females have ovaries. However, some individuals have one of each, and some individuals have ovotestes (gonads that are like ovaries and testes). Genital Differences: Both male and female genitals are formed from the same embryonic tissues. Not all babies are born with genitals that are typical for a male or female. In the past, decisions about the gender designation of an intersexed baby were made based on how similar the appearance of the genitals was to those of a typical male or female. Time has shown that gender is much more complicated than this, and that GENDER IDENTITY is an inborn characteristic of a person that is not determined by the appearance of the genitals. It is worth noting that some characteristics can be indicative of a male, while other characteristics are indicative of a female, even in a single individual (eg. male chromosome combination, female genitals; or other combinations). All of these issues regarding gender are distinct from sexual orientation. So, hope this helps with a better understanding of the meaning of gender, and demonstrates that in Nature, gender is more diverse than our traditional understanding of what it means to be male or female.
  • In India they call them Hydra's or "The third gender." Hemaphrodites fall into that catagory I think?
  • @bloodylilcorpse_The is it? Yes, some humans have both, and their called hemopheliacs.
  • No need!
