This is the second time I've made this joke. The first time was a long time ago... before this whole "gender is a spectrum" thing.

Speaking of which, maybe this isn't my place to say, but isn't creating all of these different genders, actually offensive to transgender and transsexual people?
Instead of having a man who identifies as a woman, we've instead created a whole new gender specifically for a man who identifies as a woman, instead of just calling that person a woman. Thus segregating that person from the "normal" women. Maybe it's just me, but that just sounds wrong.

And then there's the people who think gender and sexuality are the same thing, and thus have created a whole bunch of genders to explain something that's already explained in sexual preference.

But I don't think I deserve to have an opinion on the matter, since I'm not in that group.

Also, sorry. No Halloween special this year, even though Halloween is on a Wednesday this year, and thus it lines up perfectly. I never considered making a Halloween special this year, and wouldn't know what to do for one either.

No Halloween special? Now that is a scary idea. You have successfully spooped me.

As for deserving to have an opinion, of course you deserve to have one. Everyone deserves to have an opinion. You can even voice it and perhaps people will listen, perhaps they won't. Perhaps people won't even like it, but none of that changes that you deserve to have an opinion. And here is the best part, because it is an opinion it is neither right nor wrong. It is simply an opinion.

That's something I believe some very vocal people on both sides of the gender debate sometimes forget. That just because they have an opinion this doesn't mean everyone that disagrees with them wrong.

That has got to be the smartest thing I've ever read on the internet.

Kudos to you.
