Dear Lord, you are relentless. Transsex isn't short for transgender (though it is quite apparent, I don't know how you missed it), it's short for transSEXUAL. A person who transitions from one sex to the other. Transsexual people feel they are born in the wrong body and they wan't to change that either by hormones or surgery. Transgender is when their expression, behavior, or general sense of self does not conform to what is usually associated with the sex they were born in the first place.

i hope i covered everything 

Aaaaaalmost everything.

- The gems are sexless, but they're have gender (it's feminine)

- sex =/= gender (you're right here)

- pronoun choice + the way they act + the character design and overall look = gender (it can be feminine (all gems and human women in the show), masculine (Greg, Steven and the others), transgender (like Stevonnie for me) or genderless (if someone looks like the pufferfish or the ice monster)):P

QGliE8w

there are no female gems

- "[–]RebeccaSugar[S] 19 points 6 months ago 

Steven is the first and only male Gem, because he is half human!

Technically, there are no female Gems! There are only Gems! " (http://www.reddit.com/user/RebeccaSugar)

- hey now..i use he/she/them pronouns because i couldn't care less, i do not act like a boy OR  a girl, my body looks somewhere inbetween and i choose not to dress feminine or masculine and what does that make me? a void? there are so many people out there who do the same as me so no. pronoun choice, appearance, is NOT your gender. you dont walk up to a girl who dresses somewhat masculine and tell her "hey you look like a boy so youre a boy".

-feminine is not a gender. feminity is a social construct created by cissexist people who think "girls dress like this, look like this, act like this and talk like this. if you are a girl and you dont look like this, youre a freak."

-transsex??????????? do you mean transgender? transgender is not a gender either its just an umbrella term for those who arent cisgender

Question, do you know the difference between sex and gender? Because reading from your statements it feels like it's as if you don't.

"Sex" refers to the biological and physiological characteristics that define men and women. "Gender" refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities, and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women. To put it another way: "Male" and "female" are sex categories, while "masculine" and "feminine" are gender categories

  •  feminine is not a gender. feminity is a social construct created by cissexist people who think "girls dress like this, look like this, act like this and talk like this. if you are a girl and you dont look like this, youre a freak."

Femininity is a gender. Gender delineates what is "masculine" and "feminine". Yes femininity is a social construct but it is also attributed by biological factors, it was coined in the medieval era in which people were still pretty sexist but the term stuck around.

  •   "girls dress like this, look like this, act like this and talk like this. if you are a girl and you dont look like this, youre a freak."

Then the girl isn't feminine, simple as that. It doesn't make her less of a girl. A boy who still sees himself as a boy, prefers to play with dolls, dress in pink because it's his favorite color, keeps his hair long, does this make him any less of a boy? No! It's just he isn't masculine by the standards of society. That's were the difference between gender and sex becomes apparent. Society and culture constructs what is "feminine" and "masculine" but both of these does not equate to someone's sex.
