    How Society Emasculates The Truth.

    I consider myself post gendered. Let me explain what I mean: I think that we should stop assigning roles to both genders. I Think we should let nature decide what’s masculine and what feminine, let god sorts it out. Not man. Physical gender is VERY binary. I maintain that...

    Gender Binary- the common idea that there are only two groups that a person, action, or behavior can belong in: male or female   This promotes sticking people into boxes, stereotyping labels slapped over their eyes and mouths. Which contradicts all forms of realistic...

    I don't have the same level of feelings

    that people have about the gender binary in here, but I do wish for a world where everyone doesn't have to be "male" or "female". While I am unsure of what "label" I fit under in terms of gender, I know that neither of these terms fit me. I want to add my gender to my profile...

    The Pain It Causes

    The gender binary causes so much pain and sorrow in this world.  People are crammed into those little boxes that keep one from expressing the true self.  Throughout my life, I have had to fit in one or the other.  Mostly the male box.  I have allowed the...
