74. essentialism at its worst
Edited on Fri Aug-10-07 10:12 AM by Anais_98
"And by gender, I mean what gender you actually innately are."

So we are either men or women inside. Gay or Straight. Black and white> no gray, no overlap. Very simple and straight forward. Thanks for explaining that. Personally I believe there is a continuum of sexuality, gender, political leanings etc> so few people are 100% "male", 100% straight or 100% right wing. How can you say you rhat you respect my feelings and then call its crap in the same breathe.

And i did not catch the gay bug. I learnt to be more accepting, more tolerant, less homophobic and more open-minded.
