Is "Are you a boy or a girl?" really about genitals?
I see this view in the trans community (at least on YouTube) that if people ask, “Are you a boy or a girl?” what they’re really asking is the creepy question, “What genitals do you have?” Is this really true, though? To me the question means, “Which social scripts should I run with this person?” I don’t really see how the genitals argument could be justified. Am I missing something?
