The tyranny of either/or gender.
We are learning that we are not all either male or female, with nothing in between.
We all start out, in the first few weeks of life, with a female body. In the presence of a Y chromosome, male hormones, and hormone receptors, the child will usually become a Fully Differentiated Male. That means a male body, attraction to women, self-identification as a male, and fertility.
In the absence of all of the above, we usually get a Fully Differentiated Female.
There are some women in this world with female bodies and XY chromosomes, and some men with XX chromosomes. There are all kinds of possibilities
If a person does not have a normally gendered body, or is not attracted to the "opposite" sex, or does not identify with their assigned gender, or is not fertile, they are not Fully Differentiated. This may be almost half of us.
We still have to be legally male, or female, of course. But if you're transsexual, some states or counties will only recognize your original birth certificate, while others will recognize an amended one. So you could only marry boys in some places, and only girls in others. (!!!!)
To fail to offer this as a starting point is to assume that we must all be either 100% male, or 100% female. Well, some of us are gay, some are trans, and some of us are not fertile.
We all, male and female, have the same organs and tissues, and almost all of the same hormones, they're just in a little different place, or size and shape.
The differentiation of our bodies, identities, and orientations occurs in slightly different ways, and at slightly different times. This is why our sexualities come up in mix or match patterns. _You are just as God made you
But "as it is understood today" is still based on the belief in absolute gender
