Just wondering why since gender is so central to our lives we have such limited language to describe aspects of it, at least in English. Basically our language covers two genders, male and female and that’s it. What’s worse is the tendency among many to hold very narrow definitions of what a man or woman should be. Ah but even worse is the widespread conflation of sexual orientation, gender and physical sex as all one and the same.
They aren’t of course though they do all interact with each other. The problem is many people would take the preceding sentence as complete nonsense because of the limitations of our language. This needs to be gone into in more depth than I can muster tonight so I’ll sleep on it.
