    Correct me if i’m Wrong (and that’s perfectly possible) but I think the US is like one of the leading places in terms of making it a comfortable place for people identifying as transgender and they have around 0.6% of their population that fall into this category.Mr Phil O'Sophy
    Will you provide a source for that datum?

    I don't know what the proportion is in the US today, or in any other place at any other time. Who cares? What point are you trying to make by focusing on the proportion with such determination?

    I don't see what relevance such facts would have for the claims I've made thus far.

    I think you mean sex. As under transgender idea gender is what you feel vs sex is what you are.

    Regarding gender being whatever you feel it to be, if I feel 27 years old, but am actually 52, am I 27?

    you could be health wise 27, but physically be 57.

    The whole point was to back up the claim I had made previously that if 99+% of the worlds population has a coinciding gender and sex, that it would suggest correlation between the two.

    What do you make of this putative correlation?

    Suppose that 99% of bipeds are right-handed. What does this tell us about left-handedness, apart from the fact that it is (in this hypothetical scenario) quite rare?

    Suppose that 99% of humans are brown-eyed. And so on.

    Moreover, if gender is in part a cultural construct, doesn't it seem reasonable to expect that the proportion you're bearing down on here may be subject to change along with cultural context?
