    Let's Get With The Program Folks

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    'Totally', is a bit strong perhaps, but it looks as if the traditional concepts of gender are outdated indeed.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