Blindness to a wealth of nuances

When we admit that there are more than two sexes begin to perceive the infinite nuances of reality around us.

If I say that Roberto enjoy eating roast beef with plenty of mint oil, maybe you sketch a smile, when I say that Roberto tango dances very well, it may not make any gestures, but if you add that makes a living doing exhibitions couples dance with your brother, maybe you feel an extra heartbeat. If now will add that in his private life with his wife usually... you may suppose some evil, alien, abnormal, unhealthy mentally and morally reprehensible practices.

For several centuries we are subjected to a binary, polar, mental functioning of two elements: the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, the healthy and the unhealthy.

Although it might be thought that this straightforward to intellectualize how reality is owed to René Descartes, who made ​​us believe that we are the sum of body and soul, I suggest to think that the cause is prior and more important: I mean the man duality - woman.

I admit that sounds exaggerated, but our brain tends to think that all things can be grouped into only two poles, options, categories. This drastically limiting our judgment and valuation is caused because we believe that there are only two sexes. I say more: we believe that they should only be two sexes and no more.

As humanity grows and develops 're realizing that there are various sexes. For now it is possible to speak of: man, woman, transsexual, transgender, transvestite, intersex and queer.

In addition to this particular fact, I want to emphasize the following hypothesis: if we admit the existence of various sexes would begin to perceive the vastness of nuances that have the reality around us.
