    Regarding the legal concept, sure. No problems here.

    Well, for the future, a Populist is like a "man of the people".

    It's, in a lot of ways, the opposite of an elite.

    Well, Bill Clinton was said to go with whatever the polls said.

    Do you consider him a decent President?

    It's funny, whenever i see "gay" couples being loving with each other in public (holding hands, smooching, looking adoringly into each others eyes...etc etc) I feel all joyful inside. It just makes me think....oooo...progress...and so sweet, havn't we all come a long way. I am glad i live in an area which is far more accepting than many others, it means people can be themselves, freedom to express love...yay!

    Have you read Ursula LeGuin's The Left Hand of Darkness? It describes a race of androgynes, each person is capable of taking on either masculine or feminine physiology and sexuality. Their partner will take on the opposite role for some period of time, permitting reproduction, after which they might switch. These people see the human envoy to their planet as the "pervert", since he is forever locked into a single sex.

    I would love to be able to kemmer. I wonder how much of the book could be duplicated, particularly the lack of warfare (physical, sexual, etc.) if we designed ourselves like the people of Gethen?

    Gethen has no lack of political intrigue or oppression, if I recall, just a lack of gender bias since there is no basis for it in their culture. Still, that would be an improvement.

    If human beings didn't have legs, there would probably be less crime too.

    It's difficult for a race designed in all ways (genetically, physiologically, etc.) to have gender to function properly without it. I don't think we can remove gender from humans; we'd simply recreate the concept, as it's part of our genetics, unlike the Gethens. Unfortunately, this invariably leads to exploitation by the unsavory or simply those with their own subjective view of it, hence gender bias.

    I mean, obviously we'd we better off without gender bias. I just don't know how to feasibly prevent it from occurring.

    I think everything that gay people do should have the word gay in front of it. You're not doing your laundry, you're gay doing your laundry. You're not brushing your teeth, you're gay brushing your teeth. This way at least the policy will be consistent
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
