13. I've always found the idea of gender to be funny. I mean, we're all people, right?

The fact that we have these physical variations that may also result in innate behavioral variations is just plain funny.

The problem with gender isn't the variety. It's the cultural bigotry surrounding gender. Problems are socially imposed and don't have to be. (Although, OTOH, everything works out, over the long haul, the way it has to. Otherwise, it wouldn't turn out that way to begin with.)

But if you look at gender without the hate, look at it even with the social trimmings (girls, pink and dolls; boys blue and trucks), it's pretty funny.

Someday in the far future, if the humans of the world can survive the insanity of greed and gender equality is a reality (and that includes the sliding scale from female to male), I think others will see gender as pretty funny, too.
