I'm asking you how you assign gender to people who lack certain secondary sexual characteristics.

Not to mention that mammary glands aren't sex specific. Sure, in the male sex, they're usually inactive, and IIRC what they produce when they aren't isn't exactly identical to milk, but not far off either.
Swedish (sv) native; English (en) good; Norwegian (no) read fluently, understand well, speak badly; Danish (dk) read fluently, understand badly, can't speak; Faroese (fo) read some, understand a bit, speak a few sentences; German (de) French (fr) Spanish (es) forgetting; heritage language, want to understand and speak but can't.

I thought that's what LGBT did. :hmm:

By the way, I actually had to look up the title LGBTQA+ since i hadn't seen it before this thread. Maybe i'm slow but i still don't get what the plus sign means here :)

I have no idea what this is supposed to mean.

It's meant to represent the fact that there are other identities which are included in the grouping but not represented by a distinct letter (such as intersex, demisexual, two-spirit, nonbinary, etc).
