It would be more useful (IMHO), to differentiate between "created" memes and "inherited" memes. Inherited memes (male or female) are the result of a natural selection "agenda" which we have never (historically) influenced.

A more fundamental question becomes whether males *and* females can divorce themselves from their non-chosen genetic programs and write their own script or whether we will remain shadows or offspring of those unconsciously derived agendas?

A few years ago, I seem to recall an article about a scientist discovering a branch of fungi which had a dozen or more "sexes".

Why do we have to confine ourselves to perspectives "tainted" by the genetic tree we happen to currently be in?
