    I Think Gender Is a Stereot...

    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...

    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...

    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    'Totally', is a bit strong perhaps, but it looks as if the traditional concepts of gender are outdated indeed.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...
