they simply don't identify themselves by using traditional gender designations.


Excellent choice of words there... "identify". I am pretty sure they used to use the term "gender identity", which I think is perfectly suitable for the situation. And if they don't like that term anymore, then why can't they come up with a new term that suits the situation more appropriately?

However, I completely disagree that they have now decided to hijack the scientific term "gender" which has a meaning based on biological fact and not psychological fiction.

The answer is of course that it's human nature to be argumentative. Mix that with the fact that the majority of people are not intelligent enough to use logic and see reason, and you end up with the world that we have today... a dump that I often wish I had never been born into.
