I watched part of a documentary where a girl had all sorts of operations to become a male. Not only did she endure surgeries but also taking meds that altered her chemistry.
Again here is where society as well as her parents failed her, by instilling this idea that in order to considered a "true" female she had to do this or that.
Again one taught her how to develop her own identity without relying on gender.
Even if she was to toally become male, she would still be the same person inside. Does a person assume that if one is female yet likes sports, cars and working on engines that this means they are really a male inside?
Does a male assume that because they prefer to design womens clothing, run a daycare, feel a strong "maternal" instinct when they hear a baby cry or baby animals or become watery eyed over a touching movie that they are really female inside?
I like swords of all sorts, ninja stars, dragons, armors and even some mens colognes; does that I am really a male inside?
Actually I would like someone to tell me, aside from physical gender and physical traits.....what actually makes a male a male and what makes a female a female?
Is the definition dependent solely on biochemical deviations and tendencies?
Why is it okay for women to like pink but not men? Why is is ok for men to like black but not women? Why is a man considered cool if he guzzles beer with his bud but if he doesn't like beer he is considered a wuss?
Do men and women really speak and write differently? If so then in what ways?
Some people chose to fully immerse themselves into the excessive gender roles society sets up and they don't bother to think about it, thinking that personality and identity are inextricable from their physical gender. Then there are those of us who take a step back and start to think about it.
Does it really make sense to let oneself be defined by whether or not a person has a..dangly-bit and chest hair or not? (Sorry..not sure if I am allowed to use proper terminology here)
