    I think gender is a stereotype that we place on individuals sexuality.  They can't help being born with the sex they are born with yet we force individuals into neat little packages that say I'm a girl or I'm a boy based on what the world expects.  I think we should...

    Outdated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...

    Gender is a psychological construct while sex is a physical manifestation. This is important to remember, regardless of what society continually tells us all. I am and always have been female, since I was a small child. I love feminine and female things, all my life. Females...
