This was my idea "theme" for starting the poses for today;
"The going to Woods idea: for mating"
But for many (and perhaps most) people in the U.S. and around the world, a simple binary male-female gender system doesn’t come close to fitting into their actual experience. In her 1993 essay, “The Five Sexes: Why Male and Female Are Not Enough," biologist Ann Fausto Sterling wrote:
"If the state and the legal system have an interest in maintaining a two-party sexual system, they are in defiance of nature. For, biologically speaking, there are many gradations running from female to male."
Worse, this binary system has served as a tool for oppression. Feminists and LGBTQQI activists have posited that gender is a social construct and the duality of gender is not a fundamental truth, but a perspective. This perspective (or construct) is oppressive to us all. Children are ridiculed and/or bullied for even the smallest deviation from “acceptable” gendered behavior — especially boys who appear or act in some way “feminine,” reinforcing the idea that feminine (or female) is “less than” masculine (or male). Girls tend to be given more leeway for being “tomboys” until they hit puberty, when they are expected to conform to a more submissive and “feminine” role.
Once I started reading of the Fa' afafine,I knew I am as a that type of person.
Fa’afafine (literally ‘in the manner of a woman’) have been part of Samoan communities for centuries. A boy who prefers feminine tasks may be recognised as a fa’afafine while young, and takes on feminine behaviours such as wearing women’s clothes and fulfilling women’s roles in the village. Life is harder for fa’afafine in New Zealand, where people are generally expected to be clearly either male or female.- Isn't it something,that →"people are generally expected to be clearly either male or female",why you suppose that is?
Nature created us, The termed now "Third-gender type" for some reason.
