Of course, you don't state what year it was published or what level
of textbook it is. The APA only last year removed homosexuality from
the list of sexual disorders, and new research on gender will change
even more approaches.

My suggestion: If you yourself are not furthering human sexuality
through experimentation or study, leave the subject to those who are.
The focus of transhumanism is the future, not debating the dreary status

In retrospect, I should have renamed this little part of the thread,
but I leave the genius discussion back to its participants.
