Young people more and more are rejecting the social construct of male and female in favor of gender neutral attitudes.
Many queer youth are neither gay, lesbian, bisexual, or trans, and call themselves gender queer, or intergender, or don’t label themselves at all.
Dispensing with, breaking free of, traditional male and female roles allows each of us to be free to find our own unique expression, or non-expression, of our birth assigned gender.
A post-gender world is a real thing, and is worth striving for so that each child is born is free from cultural “norms” that otherwise restrict growth and creativity.
Philo’s Manifesto, from the award-winning book, Venus Plus X, that inspired our name, discusses the possibilities, as does our own Manifesto for The New Age of Sexual Freedom.
We would like to know what you think. How do you see the changing roles for males and females and those in between? Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express your thoughts on these topics. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you.
I think.. society’s view of, of the whole male/female thing is really outdated. I get in conversations with friends about this all the time. Like uh, how men are supposed to do ‘this’ and women are supposed to do ‘this’ and they really put emphasis on men being masculine and doing manly things like mechanic work, and stuff like that, And women doing gardening and cooking and it’s not like that, you know America is progressing and.. people take on different roles and, especially in the LGBT community, I mean it just, it doesn’t apply. I mean you can’t just put one person into a specific mold and expect everyone to be the same. Just, people aren’t designed that way. So I think uh, people really need to broaden their horizons and uh, open up to uh, different perspectives. How people, people operate, I mean, everyone’s different.
