The proliferation of “gender identity” designations in every sphere of life, from educational institutions to corporations and government entities, has led many to ask how it began and where it might lead.

Today, rising numbers of people, especially in the younger generations, are not only identifying as the opposite sex, as transgender, but are choosing a new gender identity from an ever-growing list of made-up options. Some of these include “nonbinary,” “agender” or “genderqueer.” None of these so-called gender identities can be defined biologically or in material terms.
