Gender Identification

One of our societies greatest overlooks is the way we identify as a gender, and the importance or gravity we lay upon it. You see, there is a gender dogma when it comes to our daily vernacular. How often do we see children segregate their language and activities by gender? You can see this in the daily lives of adults as well. The societal push to act like a boy/man or girl/woman. Why do we do this? There is no need. What if we were to eliminate the physical awareness of gender distinction. Now of course there has to be the awareness of sexual reproduction and sexual organs that distinguish individuals from another, but the weight, I advise, should be somewhat lessened.

In my youth there were many instances where I had to prove myself as a boy or man by doing many physically exploitative things. Fighting, working out, and talking back all proved that I was a man. Now how silly does that sound? To prove your gender is a preposterous idea when one looks at it in retrospect and logically. If we were to however focus on our minds instead of the trivial aspect of what hangs or does not hang inside one’s trousers than as a society, I believe that we would advance at a much more rapid rate. How much more wonderful would it be if our children worried about the contents of their minds rather than the contents of their pants. You see gender is not the social construct, the importance is.

Today we see the distinctions in gender even in our battles to prove their equality. The truth of the matter is that genders are not equal. They are entirely different. The each have their own benefits and weaknesses. So one cannot draw a straight line down society and expect equal outcomes from both genders. Our anatomies are too different.  However, our intellect is most likely all that we have where potential is identical. Now a connection can be made.

The difference between gender anatomy is focused on, so as individuals we divide ourselves further with our gender. At an early age we are exposed and forced to acknowledge the difference between genders. Imagine how the world would be if we focused on the similarities of our brains? Our intellect? Our curiosity. . .
The distinction between genders might very well disappear completely. Sexual preference would be a thing of the past. Homosexuals and heterosexuals would dissipate into history. Everyone would be bi-sexual and bigotry over sexuality would hence disappear. And if a sexual preference were to rise up, no commotion or riot would ever suppress it, for gender distinction would no longer be something to worry about.

    Because we are a sexually dimorphic species (male and female).

    > There is no need.

    As a general rule the people who say ‘gender is a social construct’ or ‘gender is fluid’ do not choose to become miners, garbage collectors, construction workers, plumbers, farmers, oil rig workers, waste disposal workers etc.

    > In my youth there were many instances where I had to prove myself as a boy or man by doing many physically exploitative things.

    This pressure comes from the fact that most boys want to lead physically active lives and engage in sports. Being different always means going against the flow. But that is not quite the same as being oppressed or being forced to be a certain way.

    If you want to live in a tree the world is not really set up to help you, because most people live in houses, and so you will find it very difficult and lonely to live in a tree. But nobody is trying to stop you from living in a tree. Nobody really cares where you choose to live, to be honest.

    Most children (and most adults) do not worry about the contents of their pants. It is only social justice warriors and social progressives who worry about these things… and they then project those worries onto children, and make children worry about them too. Maybe they should just leave children alone and let them enjoy childhood without being forced to worry about what’s in their pants?

    Yes I agree 100%

    Perhaps… although a lot of people LIKE the differences in gender (just as they like the differences in sex). Men’s physical bodies fit perfectly like two pieces of a jigsaw…. and the same is true of gender.

    Just as physical (flesh and blood) and abstract (spirit soul, consciousness) seem to make a nice union for each individual, the unison of male and female also makes a nice whole to (both sexually and platonically).

    Men and women can combine in relationships and in society to become more than the sum of their parts. Men can inspire women and women can inspire men.

    But what we’ve seen recently is the sexes being pit against each other in a war (feminism) and then as a solution to this (needless) war we are now being encouraged to get rid of gender altogether and become the ‘grey’ middle, asexual, middle ground.

    If we simply stopped the battle of the sexes we might be able to celebrate and enjoy our differences once again 🙂

    Fascinating subject.
