I should do a thread on LGBTQ (gender identity) from the Islamic viewpoint, starting with the categories of gender in Islam. Is there anything other than male and female? How is gender determined and what rules are there? Plus a few more Qs. Anticipate, while I do some research.
How’s gender established - matter of anatomy or identity (what one identifies with)? In the event of congenital issues like gender dysphoria or hermaphroditism, how do we determine gender + attendant issues? The topic of homosexuality won’t come in. It’s clear—haram & cursed act.
Thread published, guys.

It's been hot takes on LGBTQ. Let's get some Islamic edu on "gender nonconformity" i.e. "identifying as a gender different from what was assigned at birth."

There're 64 genders* today—not just male/female anymore. Anything of such & how's gender established in Islam?

Is gender about anatomy (the genital you were born with) or personal decision?

That's summarily the question this thread seeks to illuminate as per Islamic perspective. It doesn't matter if you're a Muslim or not. So far you're a knowledge-seeker and here for that, be my guest.
Like you're probably confused about the LGBTQ arguments, some persons around are confused about their biological sex and gender. The exact reason they (the few real ones among them - not trans) appear noncomformist.

This problem is called gender dysphoria.

Brother, you’re feeding your porous readers their favorite meal. Between yesterday and now, you’ve authored so many threads and tweets just to sully @bukolasaraki. Since “corruption” is the most deceitful thing to package @MBuhari and deride Saraki, I’m taking you up on this.
First, the statement below is both fad and facade. You @AdeBanqie said:

“Buhari forwarded *some* Anti-Corruption bills to NASS. However, as I write, they have not been passed.”

Did you intentionally hide the number of those bills forwarded by @MBuhari to @bukolasaraki? Fine.
Since you decided to mislead your readers, I’ll help everyone out. Let’s unravel your shrouded accusation.

@MBuhari’s Govt Sent 12 bills to @bukolasaraki’s National Assembly in 3 Years.
