On Gender Expression

One ideological battle “raging” today is centered around the idea of gender. Some say human gender is binary, male and female. Others say human gender is non-binary, that there are many genders among human beings. Personally, I see nothing wrong with the following: human gender is binary, male and female; but gender expression is varied and fluid. I don’t see why describing human gender this way should be so controversial. Those who say its binary are correct, and those who say its non-binary are also correct. You express your male or female gender your way, or change it, and I’ll do likewise. Neither needs to force the other to accept anything. Keep the force of law out of it, please. And that’s today’s two cents.
