It’s when the doctor or nurse tells the parents whether they’re going to have a boy or a girl.
How is it determined?
The boy has a penis, the girl doesn’t.
Yet it is a terrible way of illuminating humanity after birth.
For you see, we begin to do additional ultrasounds on our children throughout their upbringing.
- Are they playing with the right toys?
- Are the young men rough and tumble and the girls feminine and meek?
- Are they crossing lines which connote there may be some ambiguity?
We silently push all of our children toward sexual stereotypes instead of trying to allow them to become human beings.
It is my contention that the penis and the vagina will find each other without us turning it into a cultural mandate.
What we should be doing is teaching our children how to be human.
We should be sharing the beauty of cooperation and the power of respect.
We should stop being afraid of blurring the lines between the male and female, and realize that the wall we’ve built betwixt them is the atrocity.
I was born a boy.
I struggled with my manhood, and now, by the grace of God… I am discovering my humanity.
