As a society, we love labels. Labels make things easier to categorize and allow us to apply a wide array of expectations without having to invest much energy. Thinking of gender as a distinct binary of female XX or male XY rather than a female-male spectrum limits our appreciation for the range of humanity. If I can’t label you as a man or a woman, by what other method can I determine how to treat you? Right? Read that last sentence out loud again…it’s ridiculous how much of our daily exchanges with other humans are influenced by such an arbitrary factor.
