Congratulations you saw a form conflating terms and using them incorrectly. This doesn't mean that the two words are synonymous, just that people use them incorrectly. You have yet to deal with the words in their scientific context, which is how I am using them, because that context completely changes what we are talking about.
Because until the child has reached the age of 18 or 16 depending on the state, those sorts of decisions, like all other medical decisions are left up to the parent to decide? Is that the reason you are looking for? You do know that if they went under the knife for gender reassignment surgery it would be with the parent's consent right?Lets do one argument at a time All I am saying is that they be made to wait until there 18. At what age can I get plastic surgery without a parental consent? The legal age in the United States is 18 as to which a patient can give permission for surgery without parental consent. In general we only operate on patients 18 years and older for elective surgical procedures. Now I know why that is. Do you?
And I am not certain what your overall point even is, because as I have said several times now they wait to conduct the surgery until the child has reached that state's age of consent. This is like the third time you have made me type that, and I'm getting tired of having to repeat it.
Now, let's take this back to your original point that there are only two genders, so I will repeat something I posted before.
OX, XX, XY, XXX, XXY, XYY, XXXY are all the viable chromosome combinations which dictate the sex of the child. All of these lead to different physical characteristics than the base XX or XY.
