'Gender Identity' Chapter

Ardhanarishvara

I’d love to hear your thoughts on gender identity. It’s a good topic. A complex one. I will offer this thought in passing, and go into more depth as the topic deserves it. If you look at creation/nature, gender doesn’t seem to be an absolute really, and even in the course of human foetal development there is at first only one “gender”, female. Nature doesn’t seem to like the gender separation idea as much as humans do. If it could be said to have any prejudice at all, it’s in favour of female. There is actually a species of lizards that is all female. They have sexual behaviour, but not actual sexual fertilization. One female engages another in a way that stimulates the ovulation of a fertile egg. There is a species of frogs that even has a process of gender selection. It fluctuates according to environmental circumstances that season, but enough of the trivia.

Nature tends to like things to be whole. It’s only human thinking that makes a big fuss about how things are balanced.

“One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings.” Franklin Thomas

“It’s the idea that well, maybe people aren’t born a particular biological sex, or they are but that shouldn’t determine their gender identity. And that’s a very big component of the homosexual activist agenda now.” Bob Knight

Gender Genetics

The subject is gender identification, or identity rather, broader than identification. Perhaps some facts first. In utero, a baby only has one gender characteristic and all babies develop this characteristic first. Anatomically, we all start out female. As the baby… Seek More

Cognitive Gender

You can see the functions of your mind better than you can “think” them. Thinking being just brain flexing. Example: Shall we identify our cognitive gender identity? Think of which gender you find yourself working the most easily with, understanding… Seek More

Mystical Gender

I will go into the mystical component of gender identification. In mysticism, all spiritual figures are shown with strongly “hermaphroditic” traits. In males, there is a drive to “possess” the female traits. In females, the drive to possess the male… Seek More

Mixed Traits

The topic is gender identity. It’s not as obvious as people think and it has nothing to do with sexual preference directly, but everything with our living experience and our sense of how we function. Mostly, we have limited to… Seek More

Not Unnatural

We are talking about gender/biological identification and how it relates to health and self discovery, but we find these in the context of the world family. We have survived as long as we have not for our normal humans. They… Seek More

We Walk This Earth

We have a part of ourselves, let’s call it mind or spirit (whatever you like), but it doesn’t confine itself to the rules of biology. Is there any evidence nature has much in the way of rules there? The majority… Seek More

Gender Traits

Let’s take any world cultures, older ones. In this case the Norse. Their women were the home owners. When a male reached the age of maturity, he would go to live at a hunting lodge with the males of his… Seek More
