    I think people are much more cruel than that and X would be a social outcast.

    THAT. WAS. AWESOME.

    Did you write it? It sounds like the other story you posted.

    It seems you have a vendetta against sex and gender roles. And a lot of free time, and a great imagination.

    EDIT: Dragon "devil" has 666 posts as of now. Look out, Lucifer!

    My dad used to pass out fliers randomly from this clipboard of his, and this is a paper I received once.

    This story has it's roots in tabula rasa theory - only slightly modified for gender stereotypes. However it has been disproved by experiments. There were documented cases when a baby was born with deformed genitals and surgical procedures were used to assign a gender chosen by the parents. As the child grew she demonstrated an affinity towards social stereotypes of her genetic gender rather than the one assigned surgically - though no one has ever told her of her true origin and she could not tell herself by examining sexual organs. Since most of these cases end up assigning female gender - those "girls" actually refused to play with dolls and wear dresses.

    Modern psychology holds a view that a person's gender is determined by four parts: genetical influence, social conditioning, sexual preferences and personal individuation.

    Edit: even though the story itself is fictional it calls attention to harmful influence of stereotypes and is quite useful. I can still remember the day when I was 15 and had suddenly realised that I can trascend my gender at will. I felt so much liberated and happier ever since - a more whole human being.
