Why Couples Fear Challenging the Suffocating Rules of the Gender Binary

Without the mutual courage to grow and change, our relationship can lock us into a gender straight-jacket.

  1. Our dominant gender conditioning is deeply isolating.
  2. Our dominant gender conditioning forces us to hide our authentic selves.
  3. Our dominant gender conditioning shames us for wanting connection.
  4. Our dominant gender conditioning results in addiction, depression, and early mortality, especially for men.
  5. Our dominant gender conditioning strips of our most fundamental creative, social, emotional and sexual aspirations.
  6. Our dominant gender conditioning is harming our children.
