There are also only two different animals: elephants and non-elephants.

[-] [email protected] 128 points 3 weeks ago

Anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant.

I think you are mistaken actually the different types of animal are frogs and not frogs

There are bullfrogs and elephant bulls, so we can conclude that {🐸}∩{🐘}βŠ‚{πŸ‚}

I am frog-fluid. Some days I am a frog and others I am not frog.

Technically the existance of non-binaries also makes the binaries no longer binaries (due to increased optionality), so it would be fair to say everyone is non-binary

All the other numbers can be written wit 0/1

Feel like there's a Set Theory issue with this but I barely understand what little I can remember about it.

Does the gender of all non-self-containing genders contain itself? This is the fundamental question of gender theory.

The two genders: Binary and Non-binary.

[-] DarkCloud 14 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

There are non-binary people who still believe genders can suit others, and even be played with as forms of role play ...and there are also examples of null states, such as nullos and asexuals...

...so non-binary doesn't necessarily make a new binary if they still believe gender is fine for others, or as a role play.

A better way to think about it might be as a gender spectrum or quadratic continuum of varied characteristics and overlapping body forms and sexual preferences/behaviour.

...queer.

Whatever, just wash your hands.

And don't talk to me. I'd rather be surrounded by twelve "women" (i.e. trans men) in the men's room (or even just women) than one cis guy who insists on having a conversation with me.

I'm not there to make friends.

Never understood this. Standing at a urinal and someone walks up and starts talking to me, like no dude shut up

If there already exists "a binary" then that says there are 2 states. "Non-binary" only means there are not-two-states. This could be unary (there is one kind of thing), trinary (there are now 3 things, the old 2 and new, secret 3rd thing), or really any n-ary set of n distinctly numbered things, so long as there aren't only exactly 2 of them.

[-] UnderpantsWeevil 41 points 3 weeks ago

β€œNon-binary” only means there are not-two-states.

The state of having two states and the state of not-having-two-states is itself a two-state solution.

Unfortunately, once you rule out non-binary as a third state, you collapse back into the original binary state. Thus, non-binary exists as a quantum superposition between states, as we fluctuate between whether or not being non-binary is politically correct.

[-] Zachariah 22 points 3 weeks ago

But can a two-state solution really work?

I want to upvote the OP for presenting an interesting discussion but downvote them for being wrong. This presents a case for a non-binary voting option.

A singular like button would still only express one portion of my sentiment. A third option could be many things, none are sufficient: a none or 0 or neutral option is effectively not voting, a sideways arrow or maybe state, or mixed state would express indecision or indeterminism rather than mixed feelings.

Therefore, I propose that a second positive-negative axis is required. The addition of these "sideways" arrows allow expressing 2 kinds of sentiment: towards the post content, and towards the poster themselves. I will not specify whether left or right is positive nor will i clarify which axis (x or y) corresponds to which kind of sentiment. I'm sure this undefined behavior will cause no problems.

Nono you misunderstand. It's not "non-binary".

I'm calling myself enby, which is short for ein bisschen gay.

Reminds me of the: everything is either a duck or not a duck

[-] UnderpantsWeevil 30 points 3 weeks ago

You'd think so, and yet...

[-] Viking_Hippie 16 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

Platypussoe ruin SO many assumptions, such as

  • mammals don't lay eggs
  • mammals aren't venomous
  • mammals don't have beaks/bills
  • beavers can't interbreed with ducks
  • a deity created the world and deities don't get drunk

One day aliens are going to meet us and wonder what happened in our evolution that made us biased towards seeing every noun in groups of two, except for rules of nouns which are in groups of three.

"Troll logic" is one of my favorite memes.

Exactly like being hit by lightning at any instant has a 50% risk because either it happens or it doesn't.

That's so sad to me. From my POV being non-binary isn't aggressive. It's just that there are more important things to worry about than gender.
