Gender Fluidity: Stereotypical?

“Sex” refers to the physical differences between people who are male, female, or intersex. A person typically has their sex assigned at birth based on physiological characteristics.”

Gender, on the other hand, involves how a person identifies. A person may identify at any point within this spectrum or outside of it entirely.

We live in a society that is full of gender (sex) based stereotypes. I believe in a society free of such stereotypes, there would not have been a need of differentiating between sex and gender.

I have heard people say, “We don’t feel comfortable with our sex.”. After a lot of brainstorming, I could find 2 reasons behind this discomfort.

1~ You have a lifestyle which goes well with the stereotypes set by this society for another sex. In this case -

If you feel uncomfortable in your body because of this society then the problem is not with your body (sex). It is with how much you are promoting stereotypes. What is wrong with making your lifestyle fluid? Why does it all narrow down to you assigning pronouns to your lifestyle? Is this not having a stereotypical approach?
Either way, if you have
a big fight ahead, then why not bury stereotypes?

2~ You desire to have the body of another sex. In this case -

Get it operated. After the operation, your sex would be different clinically. Kudos! And in case you do not have enough money to do so... You’ve no choice left but to accept that your sex is still the same because after all your desire was to adopt new sex physically which is unachievable.

With everyone trying to be acceptable, let’s first accept that lifestyle has nothing to do with your sex. As per opinion, if we have lifestyle fluidity, no gender fluidity is required. Lifestyle Fluidity is the key to so many evils around us. Isn’t it a dream to find a world where all respect choices?

If there are any other points which do not trim down to these two above, please write them down in the comments, I would like to have more intel on this topic :)
