Matt Margolis has a post over at PJ Media about the results of a Rasmussen survey that shows that 75% of Americans believe that there are only two genders. Well, if they’re French speakers, they’re correct. If they are English speakers, they are wrong.
In the English language there are four genders: masculine/he, feminine/she, neuter/it, and indefinite/he (informal)/one (formal). In English, gender follows biological sex for animate beings.
There are only two sexes, and sex is not the same thing as gender—not even in the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak Dictionary.
