Recently I was talking with a friend and first sexuality came up and then she said, that she doesn't think of herself as a woman. This is much akin to my way of thinking. I don't think of myself in terms of sexulaity or gender. As I said to her, I am always momentarily perplexed; when, an application or chart has a box to be ticked off for male or female. I know through standard thought-as given to me by society, that I am male. However, I move towards the idea of a soul and that is who (or what) I connect to and how I prefer to think of myself. Further assessment, brought me to the realization; that, my view is of the bent that labeling a person as male or female is indeed its own form of discrimination. What else could it be? Why is it necessary to ask this on an application of any sort? It serves but one purpose to separate and divide men from women. This is discrimination in the same way that asking a person if they are black, white, Asian, Hispanic or any other grouping is discriminatory. It disgusts me. How can the people of the world ever truly unite as one; while these separative terms are in use?
