“You know when you’re watching church on Sunday morning [on television] and that little lady is in the left corner of the screen signing? And you really wish you could just say something to get her to be like, ‘Woah, there is a sign for “motherf****r” ’?”
Can you prove non binary people don't exist? With facts not just your opinion
*cracks knuckles* Alrighty here we go.
So, to start off with, I can’t definitively prove anything. I can’t prove with 100% accuracy the existence or non-existence of non-binary people or even binary transsexuals for that matter. But the difference is that we have plenty scientific research evidence for one, and not the other.
We have studies upon studies showing differences in brain structures between the sexes. And thats not even getting transsexuals involved. Men and women have observable differences in the way their brains are structured, as well as having differences in the amounts and location in the brain of grey and white matter.
The brain, of course, begins development while the fetus is still living inside the mothers womb, and during pregnancy, the fetus is presented with sex hormones to help it develop the way it needs to. If the fetus receives male sex hormones, it develops male brain patterns and structures. If no male sex hormones are received, the brain defaults to female.
Now, how does this apply to transsexuals and non-binary people?
The current data out on the matter of transsexuals is that we have the brain sex that is opposite to the sex of our body, likely caused by either the release of sex hormones when not appropriate (female fetus receiving testosterone in the womb), or the non-release of sex hormones when needed (male fetus not recieving testosterone in the womb). This difference in brain sex to body sex most likely causes the brain confusion and distress, as the brain is not equipped to deal with the sexed parts of the opposite sex. This confusion and distress results in what we call sex or gender dysphoria (AKA, the discomfort/disconnect/distress that one experiences towards the sex of their body.)
The reason why I do not believe in non-binary genders is because (with our current knowledge on the subject) it is virtually impossible to have a ‘non-binary’ brain.
Tumblr user myragewillendworlds has made numerous excellent posts explaining why a non-binary brain could not exist, so I’ll leave a few here for you to peruse.
Now, I don’t know what your exact views on what gender is are, so I’ll include a few extra things to debunk any arguments early.
If you are someone who thinks gender is whatever you identify yourself as, or that to be transgender, you just have to identify as such, then think about this.
I am technically a transsexual man. I was born with and still have a female body, but I experience a disconnect and a discomfort with my sex, and so I have chosen to undergo transition as a means to relieve myself of my sex dysphoria. Despite this, I do not identify as transsexual or transgender or trans or anything like that. When ever possible, I try to forget that I am a transsexual, and I only ever say that I am in situations where I feel it appropriate, which is rarely. I never call myself trans, and I don’t consider myself trans. If anything, I identify as a cis man.
So with that said, does that make me not trans? Since I do not identify as trans, does that make me not trans, despite being a transsexual?
If you are someone who thinks that gender is a social construct, then think about this.
If gender is a social construct, then how do we have transgender people? By saying gender is a social construct (i.e. Gender is fake and so you can be any gender you want, not just male and female) then you are implying that you can simply chose to be trans, which is a horrible mindset that we are trying to work against.
Now, you may be mistaking gender for gender roles. Gender roles, while some have a basis in biology, are largely a social construct, and are ‘fake’. I am all for people being gender non-conforming, but you don’t need to call yourself ‘non-binary’ just because you are a girl who likes wearing ‘mens’ clothing, or a guy who like wearing ‘women’ clothing.
If you are someone who thinks “non-binary people exist because they say they are non-binary”, then think about this.
If I say I am a dragon, does that mean dragons now exist?
That is all I can explain for now, though I have many more thoughts about closely related topics that I may explain if the need arises.
I will also ask you a question in turn, and add that I think it is silly to ask “prove something does not exist.” YOU should be trying to prove that something does exist, not trying to prove how it does not. Thats like me saying “prove to me that God does not exist.” or “prove to me that dragons do not exist.”
Can you prove non-binary people do exist? With facts, not just your opinion.
While all the other members had been friends with at least one of each even before they came together as jekki, Suwon was the only one who had a formal audition and was a ‘stranger’. And he often says he became a member just so that jekki can have one more member than H.O.T.
But ironically, Suwon was the ONLY one who kept in touch with all the members for 16 years, and the one who wanted a reunion the most.
1. Suwon and Jiwon
I almost forgot, my dongsaeng Jang Suwon finally gets discharged in two days and comes back as a singerㅋㅋ Jekki fans rise~~~ (Sorry) Good night^^*

3. Suwon and Jaeduck aka J-Walk (one post will not be enough to cover the history of these two)
Jaeduck: To be honest, we still don’t know why Jekki disbanded. We need to do it again someday. But even if Jekki can’t get back together, I’m never going to separate from Suwon. It was Suwon who helped me get back up after Jekki disbanded.
Suwon: When we debuted as J-Walk, people said things like “What can the two of you do? Things are different now”. So we worked even harder so that we won’t disappoint our fans. Maybe that’s why we’ve gotten comments about how our music is more mature than jekki’s. One day, Jekki will get back together. But not now. We have to work hard and improve ourselves before that day comes.
-2002, J-Walk Interview
People have been saying he should use this as a chance to become a solo artist Jang Suwon. Jang Suwon laughed and dismissed this saying ‘No because Jaeduck hyung will desert’. “I’ve never been apart from Jaeduck hyung. Even when we couldn’t do anything for 3 years because of issues with our company, he was there with me. Members of Clon and Can are around 10 years older than us but both groups are still together. Sending Jaeduck hyung to military, I thought I want us to be like them. I’ll just remain as a J-Walk member.”

Ay~ Drunkard do you still live in alcohol barrel? Come down to Gangnam! Call me when you do~ Also I’m adding you on Cyworld~ Your nose is still big^^

5. Suwon and Jiyong
Suwon: Do you want me to call him right now? We’re still in touch, and I just saw him recently. And actually, not too long ago, Jiyong’s name appeared #1 on trending search. So I texted him ‘Why is your wedding such a big deal’, and he said he was surprised too. From his perspective, he wasn’t trying to tell people about it so it must’ve been a little overwhelming. But we think it’s a good thing. People still remember him, and care about him.

6. Suwon and the fans
^Suwon meeting his fans in 2015 at a restaurant; this is honestly so precious and made me realize how close he is to his fans. For a while, Suwon kept two phones so that his fans could text him. He used to sing at old fans’ weddings too.
Sometimes it really amazes me how smooth he is in terms of relationships. He seems to have a really solid understanding of each member, and knows how to compliment them and make them feel better. He’s so good at making fun of them, but also knows the perfect timing to stop. People call him a robot, but deep in his heart, he knows us fans think of him as a superstar and he prides in that. Humble, but confident.
Let’s all appreciate Suwon. His self-esteem, his smoothness, his loyalty, his singing, his dancing, and of course, his face.
If it does, lucky me. She’s [McBride] awesome. She’s my favorite actress on the show. I mean, I like them all, but I’ve gotten to work a lot with her and know her vibe. If it happens, it happens. I want it to be awkward when it happens. I want it to be really awkward. I want her to make the first move. […] I don’t think he’s figured out women. What does a relationship look like and how does that work? He never really grew up with a woman in the house, so it’s sort of like foreign creatures to him. […] Maybe he got together with a couple of locals at one point or something. But I don’t think he was ever in any sort of serious relationship. So if it happens, great. If it doesn’t, great. I like the fact that we’re two damaged people and we sort of gravitate to each other. I like that. If it happens, right on.
