    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...

    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...

    My Squalk Is This....

    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...

    Outdated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?
