With the Bruce Jenner transsexual story headlining there is much discussion about gender versus sex.
Many feminists and many transsexuals believe that there is a distinct difference between gender and sex. They believe that gender is nothing more than a social construct, while sex is something that you are born into.
This got me thinking, if your physical form does not matter in regards to the way that you are treated by society, what does?
What criteria do transsexuals need to meet in order to be considered a transsexual?
As I pondered this question, I happened upon an interesting thought.
If the physical form of a transsexual does not define their gender, what other things in the physical realm do not define a person’s identity?
What about race? Is race different from ethnicity?
For example, though my skin color is white, perhaps I feel black on the inside so what does that make me? Am I now a black American?
According to the logic exhibited by transsexuals and their supporters… it does?
And so I leave you with this…
Are we really willing to go down this road. Where things of an objective of nature are up to interpretation by each and every individual. Does this not seem problematic to you?
Ponder that my cracka!
