    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?

    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...

    Outdated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...

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    'Totally', is a bit strong perhaps, but it looks as if the traditional concepts of gender are outdated indeed.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