Of course some people genetically and biologically don't fit into the male/female binary. Some people are born with something other than XX or XY, or their genitals don't match their chromosomes.

You also might want to look at the definitions of sex vs gender identity

I have no idea what chromosomes Manning has, or what hormonal exposure she had in utero. It doesn't really matter to me.
I guess i just don't understand why it's so hard for people to take someone's word about who they are.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
