Why is it that when someone mentions breaking out of current genderbased limitations, the best they can think of being more like the other set of gender-based limitations? To hell with "genderless" society; I want gender differences to /increase/, not decrease. I want real diversity, vitality, creativity, freedom. I want to be a third or fourth gender. I want to take plant hormones and insect hormones, not just female human ones.

I look at current gender traits much the same way I look at current government: a part of reality that has to be dealt with until we can make something better. So for now I pay my taxes and trim my beard while working for the day when I can pay my crime insurance and trim my foliage.
