Caution is needed here. To say that Dawkins claimed that science says there are only two _genders_ and that Dawkins has stated this is a misquote. From the above linked article:

"He then said, 'There are two sexes. You can talk about gender if you wish, and that’s subjective.' Morgan asked him about people who claim there are "a hundred genders," though Dawkins claimed, 'I’m not interested in that.'

"He said bluntly, 'As a biologist, there are two sexes, and that’s all there is to it.'"

God's design incorporates two human sexes, male and female. In this broken world, now drenched in technological "progress" that promotes disease and death everywhere, sexual development can go wrong at any number of stages, from genetic recombination resulting in chromosomal abnormalities to genetic mutations that inhibit synthesis of critical enzymes to systemic damage from endocrine disruptors and other poisons (some of them being prescribed pharmaceuticals).

All of the variations of which I am aware are pathological in nature, made possible due to sin but not strictly part of God's design. In Matthew 19:12a Jesus referred to a class of variations known to the ancient world. He did this in the context of explaining about divorce and about who should not seek to marry. Was He then contradicting Gen. 2:24? No, of course not. This world is fallen. That's Genesis 3.

I am acutely aware of this because I am one so affected, and I failed to heed Jesus' warning. I didn't even understand it -- I've never heard that passage preached and no wonder, since what He said there about divorce is rejected by much of the church. The way I live is certainly not the way we were meant to live, but then everyone can make that claim for other reasons. By the way, I did receive other clear warnings about marrying, which I ignored.

To be clear, however, I don't understand the gender confusion being promoted now to represent any kind of truth, nor do I think it is coming from the trans community as any kind of real movement. They were infiltrated and deceived, as has happened with other communities as well. That would include many churches.

Matt. 24:3-4:   Now as He sat [or, 'when he was seated'] on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you."

Deception is the first sign.
