There is a lot of talk and controversy around gender these days.
I found this article on the topic very interesting:
Israel study: Men still men, women still women
Apparently gender is in our DNA even if our outward appearance changes. Some may find this study, or any other sources that reach the same conclusion, tough to hear. We have to remember that if the only truths we accept are the ones we like, then we are not really seeking truth; just comfort and selfishness.
