    Outdated

    I don't think it makes sense to tell children how they should act based upon one body part. We give them toys based upon gender, books, movies and different treatments based upon gender, it doesn't make sense. Instead of telling a child who they are supposed to be, we should...

    Aside From Being An "Innie" or an "Outie"...

    There's really a few variations - sure there are mood and hormones and other physiological issues, and of course nature/nurture and epigenetics, but as adults, is there really a difference  - does gender really matter?
