    The concept of the gender. One way is simple, but another way is so complicated... Generally speaking, if we say gender we think about it as male and female. Its not so simple. Which one gender we thought? Because it have a few. We can think about the regular used one, which...

    Outdated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...

    Let's Get With The Program Folks

    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...

    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?

    Hybrid

    'Totally', is a bit strong perhaps, but it looks as if the traditional concepts of gender are outdated indeed. People became persons lately. A man is not another man or another and women too all are different. A female mind may be trapped in a male body and vice versa...

    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...

    Now that women are equal in employment and every other way, let's make gender irrelevant in dating too. No more of this expectation that men will do all the work and take all the risks to start relationships. Atleast for nerds/intellectual eccentrics, this would help put the...
