I like to teach that gender is our personality and that a penis and a vagina does not create our gender identity. We are not assigned our personality, we just become it. Just like becoming left or right handed, or being able to be ambidextrous and use both hands.  We now trust a child to… Continue reading A Penis and a Vagina does not Create our Gender Identity

A Male/Female Mosaic Brain Proves We Need the Self-Determination of Gender

  People have tried to create the myth that the brain is either male or female.  However, the science around this is very skewed, biased, and is always proven to be not good science at all.  I can see why transgender people, and their doctors, psychiatrists,  psychologist,  would be eager to want to prove the… Continue reading A Male/Female Mosaic Brain Proves We Need the Self-Determination of Gender
