Must not claim there are only two "genders"

Whatever "genders" may be. For most of my life only foreign words had gender

A popular online gamer who regularly broadcasts on streaming platform Twitch claims she has been permanently banned from the platform for stating her “beliefs” that “there are only two genders”.

HelenaLive says her partnership with the video game streaming platform — owned by Amazon — was terminated and her account shut down after her comments were deemed “offensive toward the transgender community”.

The website lets gamers broadcast their live action to fans, which typically includes a split screen so viewers can see the player as well as the gameplay.

Users can be banned for a range of indiscretions ranging from overtly skimpy outfits to offensive speech.

In an email from Twitch, later posted online by HelenaLive, the streaming service said it was her third strike in as many months, citing she had been reported twice “for hateful conduct in the last two months”.

“Your recent behaviour has proven your lack of understanding of what hateful speech is and how it may affect your community on your channel,” the email said.

“Several of your statements have been found offensive towards the transgender community, and we don’t tolerate this kind of behaviour.”

Why should normal people accommodate those with twisted minds ?

She didn't offend the "trans" gender community, she offended the "pangender" community, those who believe there are a multitude of genders spread across some "spectrum" of social constructs.

Transgender people are not the same as "nonbinary." Non-binary are not "in transition" from one gender to another (using the standard MALE/FEMALE constructs as starting and ending points). They simply want to be "fluid," letting their mood decide what they are "today." Whether they tend toward the Masculine or the Feminine (and in truth, those are the only TWO genders that are recognized as "real") is less important than that you treat them with special handling to avoid offending their fragile sensibilities.

"If your 23rd chromosome pair is "XX" then you're a female, a girl, a woman. If your 23rd chromosome pair is "XY" then you're a male, a boy, a man. If you think you're something else then you have gender dysphoria a recognized mental disorder and you need mental healthcare help, immediately." - ScienceABC123
