It's still the most commonly used one. Just because some leftists made up a new definition doesn't mean that it's generally accepted.

It's the definition that most people were taught, gender identity is a fairly new development. But that doesn't mean that their outdated definitions are correct. In the end it's just words, I don't get why people are so against the idea of gender identities but I guess had they just taken an entirely new word for it, the backlash would be much less

I haven't met many people who are against the concept. What I myself am against is deliberately picking a loaded word to represent a concept and then crying bigotry when people don't agree with your new definition for that word. I have no problem with the concept, but I'd like them to pick a different word for it to keep the discussion unambiguos. Also, since you mentioned the Oxford Dictionary's definition, I'll give below a definition from the Dictionary of Gender Studies in the Oxford Reference Dictionary of English, as I happen to have free access to the entire reference due to my studies: "gender The notion of what it means to be male or female. In some languages such as French and German, words have a grammatical gender which may be feminine, masculine, or neutral. Within feminist theory, gender has been contrasted with sex. Gender here expressed the acculturation of an individual into femininity or masculinity as practised in a given culture; that is, it was regarded as socially constructed, whereas sex was viewed as biologically given through female or male bodily traits. This binary distinction has come under increasing pressure since the early 1990s when Judith Butler argued that both gender and sex are cultural constructions, as queer and LGBT people in particular proposed that there are more than two gender identities, and as a result of poststructuralist and postmodern theories that refused binarism as a way of structuring our understanding of the world." Note, that it gives multiple definitions. It starts with the traditional meaning, i.e male vs female, and then goes on to explain what the word means in modern feminist theory. Even the dictionary of Gender Studies doesn't try to say that the old definition is somehow outdated or wrong. It's just different.

You're right, I shouldn't call it outdated. It's fair game

Do you not understand the absurdity of gender identities? Ok, how about this? From now on my gender pronouns are: King of the Universe King of CSGO Best Player of All Time And I want you to refer to me as the above. This is all driven by emotion, we're in the age of emotionalism, which is absolutely absurd.

The definition of gender is being changed left and right by the left. I think this is just preposterous. People are just defining Gender as whatever they want, if we continue to allow this to happen then anything can mean anything for that matter.

The definition of gender has evolved, but I don't think it is changing left and right. I do think that over time, we will get a more clear picture of the whole situation, right now it is kind of expanding into weird territory, but that is to a large part due to internet bubbles

I'm saying that you've been thaught on school that people is either a boy or a girl, but there's more than chromosome XX or XY and there's a lot of other factors, not just pshycologic, that could define your gender.

A lot of factors? Define your gender? Gender has always been boy and girl, and now people can identify as whatever they want? I identify as "King of the Universe" why don't you refer to me as that pronoun from now on? Do you not realize the absurdity in all of that?

Sure, I see the absurdity on your example, I'm sure you can come with something better, or at least, try to dig a bit on the matter and search for genetists explaining it, maybe on that way you can open your mind and understand other people who are not mad (sure some of them are) and they are just people like you.

It's funny how the left changes the definition of Gender, and now we're all supposed to agree with the idea of a "gender spectrum". Go watch this – Dr. Debra Soh: youtube.com/watch?v=gHY24wtdUxM

Perhaps you misread my comment. I haven't said a single word about biology whatsoever. I agree that there are multiple different gender identities. Nobody is disputing that. I'm just saying that to most people, the word gender refers to biological sex, not these identities. It also remains a fact that while there are multiple possible gender identities, there are only two biological sexes. The entire polarization of this topic, in my opinion, is purely due to the fact that pioneering researchers in the field of gender identities are fixated on redefining the word gender (perhaps for political reasons) instead of just calling gender identities something like gender identities. I doubt even the most conservative people would have any issues with a statement like "one male can have more feminine traits than another male, and feel that it is meaningful with regard to his identity." The problem is that they can't get as far as statements like these because they're instantly slapped with THERE ARE TWO TRILLION GENDERS stuff, which sounds ridiculous from their point of view, as by the normal (the old, the whatever you want to call it) definition of gender that just isn't possible.

So, the thing that defines your sex is your genitalia? What about people who has both? If you have a penis but big breasts, low testosterone and you like other men you're still a man? Even if you want to cut it off your sausage? I don't think it's just black and white, and at the end that fight between if it should be gender, sex or a new word, it's just a semantic thing, unless for people who believe we came from adam and eve.

Generally, sex is considered to be defined by your chromosomes, which are actually quite black and white. There can be abnormalities there as well but they're just that - abnormalities, not something we should base the whole system on. Even for intersex people, it's exceedingly rare to not be able to distinguish their sex from their chromosomal activity. Their gender (by your definition) is obviously a whole different story, though. And yes, I agree that it's mostly semantics, which is why I can't understand why not just change the term to make the whole concept easier to understand and agree with for the opposition.

What's the point of having 2 words with the exact same meaning? Gender and sex was regarded as the same thing so they repurposed it to mean something else. Had they used a new word for it, would that change anything?

I agree but I avoid using the words "sex" and "gender" because everyone translates them differently and I always get in a fight for no reason xDDD just let anyone do whatever the fck he wants in their bed or with their body and stop putting them in categories (LGBTQ +100 other letters for literally every situation)

I mean if you use his definition of gender he is 100% correct. It's just that a normal person doesn't agree with his definition. For a normal person gender = sex Why did they have to pick the word gender for this identity shit? Why can't they just speak of, I don't know - IDENTITY??
