gender identity and perception
Posted in response to a comment from meleah. I know this is sort of like using LJ as a newsgroup rather than a diary thingy - but i want the answers i'd get here - not in acg :)
Perception of gender is something that is programmed into us by society since birth. Dolls and pink for girls, trucks and blue for boys for example.
How does is effect us both on a conscious and sub conscious level?
How does it affect society as a whole, and how can the blurring of gender lines affect society?
How hard is that programming to overcome, and what techniques could be used?
