FYI the proper pronoun for Caitlyn is "her". "Him/His" refers to a male which she is no longer, and "It/It's" refers to a genderless thing which she has never been. Hope this helps with your confusion! :)

All of the above! I am correct and the information is both helpful and "PC". That is assuming that your use of all gender pronouns (her/his/it's) was due to some confusion on your part on what pronoun to use. If, however, your use of all gender pronouns (him/her/it) was not due to confusion but instead an attempt to ridicule & belittle a person going through gender reassignment... well then you're just a dick and I'm a huge smart-ass.

First of all, I use he/she/it because he was born a male, identifies herself as a female and is, in mathematical terms, is either or neither, therefore it.
Second of all, how can you be a smart ass if your name is BigStupidHead ?

Your logic is flawed.

First, she WAS born male, but YOU were also born an infant. Is it fair of me to refer to you as an immature baby that wets itself and craps in their pants? No, you changed and so has she.

Second, she DOES identify herself as a female and with simple human decency we should all respect that.

Third, we are talking about GENDER PRONOUNS. Why are you bringing mathematical terms into it? In case you didn't know, there is a huge difference between language and math even if they use the same letters. Plus, referring to a person as an "it" is just plain rude.

Lastly, the head is stupid, the ass is smart.
(Thank you! You just just helped me come up with my tagline.)

Point one: Math is the base for all sciences

Point two: I don't care how you insult me, I'll just downvote you unless it was a joke, a VERY bad joke

Point three: How can you be so sure that Caitlyn and Bruce are the same person? And I'm not talking about other possibilities that deny the official story...

Point four: I use 'it' because it is a gender neutral term, just like Bruce/Caitlyn

Point five: Your new tagline just pooped your brains away...

This might be getting a little out of hand.... but it's fun so here goes.

1. I agree! Math is the base for all sciences, but language is not a science. It's a method of human communication, either spoken or written, consisting of the use of words in a structured and conventional way. Applying mathematical definitions makes as much sense as using NASCAR rules to paint a house.

2. How did I insult you? I did NOT mean to insult you. If I insulted you I apologize. This entire conversation stems from me thinking you were not sure what pronoun to use (or incorrectly using them). Feel free to downvote me if you must, I don't really care about that. What was the VERY bad joke?

3. This makes no sense to me so here is a picture of a bunny with a pancake on it's head.

4. Bruce/Caitlyn are not gender neutral. HE was Bruce & now SHE is Caitlyn. Gender: The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones).

5. Thanks... I guess.

Point one: I used Math to calculate how much of it is male and how much is female. The results show that it is neither.

Point Two: I accept you apology because I wasn't offended in the first place, and I'll apologize back for my comment on you tagline.

Point three: This guy is on my side (in the pic) (email the conversation to him if you wish)

Point four: Bruce/Caitlyn will never let go fully of all of its male parts, that is even beyond this guys power (again, the one in the pic)

Point Five: Dig beyond what mainstream media shows you, and you'll find out what the whole story was.

How can you "no longer" be a man? Did they change his chromosomal configuration? He may identify as a woman and I can be respectful (or disrespectful) of that, but that does not change the fact of what he is!

THAT is a very good question PaulyWally. It all comes down to gender.
-----------------------------------------
Definition of gender in English:
noun
The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones)

Usage:
The word gender has been used since the 14th century as a grammatical term, referring to classes of noun designated as masculine, feminine, or neuter in some languages. The sense ‘the state of being male or female’ has also been used since the 14th century, but this did not become common until the mid 20th century. Although the words gender and sex both have the sense ‘the state of being male or female,’ they are typically used in slightly different ways: sex tends to refer to biological differences, while gender refers to cultural or social ones.
-----------------------------------------
You guys seem to be stuck on the biology so let's look at that.
Yes, with genetic gender, genetic males normally have an X and a Y chromosome (XY), and genetic females normally have two X chromosomes (XX).
There is also a condition know as klinefelter syndrome where you get (xxy) chromosomes or (xyy) or (xxx) or (xyx) or (xxyy) or (xxxy).
Chromosomal configuration is not the best for determining gender, but do use the same "sex" terms (Male/Female)

Now the social and cultural discussion.
A persons gender is determined by gender identity. Gender identity is a person's private sense and subjective experience of their own gender. This is generally described as one's private sense of being a man or a woman, consisting primarily of the acceptance of membership into a category of people: male or female.

NOW, to answer your question "How can you "no longer" be a man?" By changing his gender identity (as well as his body), Bruce stopped being the gender male and she started being the gender female. SHE did not change HER chromosomal configuration, but just her social and cultural differences that make her gender.

Lastly, if you have wings grafted to your back, it doesn't make me a genetic butterfly... but it might make you social butterfly. (ba dum tsh!)

You make it sound as if the social and cultural aspect of gender identity is something that an individual chooses. The overwhelming number of men with male sex organs and chromosomes identify, as a matter of default, their gender as male. The same is true for women. Bruce may have the right to choose between social genders, but his decision is so far outside the biological and social norm that It falls into the realm of deviant and perverse. I personally feel sorry for Bruce/Caitlyn and others like Him, because they probably need quality mental health care but never receive it. If Bruce was courageous and strong he would accept that he is a man that wants to be a woman, but never will be.

I don't think you guys are really getting what I'm trying to say here. All I am talking about is PROPER PRONOUN USE in regards to a persons GENDER.
Once again...

Gender refers to the distinction between male and female individuals, especially with regard to non-biological differences.

The moment Bruce/Caitlyn decided to socially represent and adhere to the cultural aspects of what it is to be a woman (i.e. gender identity), she changed her GENDER and the PRONOUNS referring to her changed as well.

The fact that an overwhelming number of peoples gender identity matches their sex (or genetic gender) has NOTHING to do with the way we communicate!

And your personally feelings (no matter how valid they may seem to you) simply do not change the english language.

Actually, she didn't change her gender, she only went half way. She's saving the other half for season two. That's the reason I think many people have very little respect for this "personal choice". It's not much more than a publicity stunt like most things that family does.

Well... that's a different topic. My ENTIRE point was just proper pronoun use. Referring to Caitlyn Jenner as a "he" or "it" is simply incorrect.

Looked it up and you made my point.
Androgen insensitivity syndrome is a condition that affects sexual development before birth and during puberty. People with this condition are genetically male, with one X chromosome and one Y chromosome in each cell

Genetically male, yes. Biological male, yes. Gender Identified females existing with a gender identity of female. If you looked it up you would see that some of these people live and exist socially within the cultural terms of what it is to be female. ONCE AGAIN...

So, the proper pronouns we use are determined by a persons GENDER, NOT by a persons genetic profile OR their biology. If a person gender identifies as female then when referring to them we use the female pronouns (she/her/hers).

There are some weird & wacky people out there who do not gender identify as male or female and prefer the gender neutral pronouns (it/it's) REGARDLESS of their genetics. Some really wild folks gender identify as both male & female and want NEW pronouns to reflect their gender identity like (se/hem/hirs). But I don't see this happening anytime soon considering how much of a problem people have with COMMON ENGLISH PRONOUN USAGE!!!

The only reason "she" is getting all this publicity is because "she" has a lot of money. There's PLENTY of people (even famous people) who have/want to be the opposite gender. "She" doesn't deserve that courage award, or all this bullshit drama.
