It’s actually NOT standard knowledge that there is just male and female. If you’re basing it on genetics, you’re completely ignoring the (completely scientific) existence of intersex people. There are people born who have a mixture of chromosomes. If you’re talking about gender, there is evidence going back far in history of the recognition of other genders. Either way, your views are narrow, dismissive, and damaging.
