On That Damned Gender Binary

The universal acceptance of gender as wide ranging and fluid is coming sooner than you think

Put simply, for generations the gender binary, as framed by man box culture, has been cynically used to manipulate people, to control women, to drive outcomes in the voting booth, and to limit the acceptable boundaries of what it means to be human. Men against women, trans people as targets, masculinity as dominance and so on. And in doing so, we strand the next generation, our own children, in the ugly divisive male/female cage fight this creates. The binary is poison.
