Non-binary genders do not exist. There can't be; gender is based on your sex, Not some confusing pronoun we can't get right.

In regards to biological sex, Intersex people can have features of both sexes, And there is a range of associated phenotypes. There is a spectrum of people who exhibit features which do not fit into the binary of male or female. Therefore, There is such a thing as non-binary sex.

If you argue that gender is based on your sex, Then intersex people are surely non-binary?

I'll take it a step further.

Many intersex people chose to present as a certain gender. That is because gender is not based on sex. Gender is how society treats you. If a biological female looks/acts like a male, She will be treated as such. If a biological male looks/acts like a female, He will also be treated as such. Nobody is checking your junk (or your chromosomes) to see if you're the 'right' sex for your gender.

In all, Gender is not based on sex, And even if it was, Intersex people would be an example of non-binary individuals.

the perspectives are actually wrong because the "pro" is arguing for the position for con. I will respect SirDale aka Mr. Game and watch as a revolutionary video game character, But I strongly suspect he misclicked the sides.
