Whoa... I think I told you earlier that some of your messages I save to
read at times when I am alert, to mull and ponder. This one I had to
print. Bringing in the concept of male and female gender issues into
the discussion sort of came out of left field for me. I have always
just assumed that things we (as humans) assign to gender are memes in
themselves. Certainly in nature we see different species where gender
roles and issues are very different from primates. Even within primate
societies gender roles vary somewhat.

Anyway, I do not feel competent to reply to this right now. So I will
flag it for further response later.

BTW, there are gender-ambiguous names and IMHO Brett is one of them.
Somehow I have concluded that you are male. Not that this makes any
difference, but now I am curious.

Non gender-ambiguous
