WHAT ROLE DOES GENDER PLAY IN YOUR LIFE & HOW DOESIT AFFECT YOU? I ASKED THIS BACK THEN & I AM SURE THE RESPONSE ISN'T DIFFERENT TODAY. ISN'T IT AMAZING HOW SOMETHING SO INTERTWINED INTO THE VERY FIBER OF OUR BEING IS THE ONE THING WE TEND TO ABUSE & IGNORE?
While many people, whether HOMOSEXUAL, HETEROSEXUAL or BISEXUAL, aspire to intimate and sexual relations based on mutual love and emotional support I cannot help but wonder if GENDER plays a role in how AND who we LOVE. Both today, and throughout the whole process of life WE MEN and WOMEN will continue to challenge traditional views of GENDER ROLES, which reflect AND reinforce the oppression AND distorts the truth about who we are. The old traditional GENDER ROLES, which have existed for thousands of years, has been broken AND transformed. People will no longer have to put up with the ridiculous and unscientific notions that women who are aggressive, independent, and outspoken, or athletic are TOO MASCULINE; or that men who aspire to be creative, sensitive or nurturing are EFFEMINATE. These qualities in human beings should be appreciated and fostered between both sexes, and children growing up will not have to feel that they do not fit into gender definitions that are already archaic and objectively a hindrance to their development.
