"What are the consequences of everyone being divided into two sexes - Male & Female?"


one of the biggest consequences of this concept is the people who don't fit into the binary. sex and gender (being different things themselves, one biological the other philosophical), aren't as clearly cut either/or as media and society cares to represent. 


gender roles are a result of the gender binary; as people try to break out of their societal assigned gender role, are they also breaking the gender binary? or can they maintain their gender identity while changing the way it's represented?


male and female aren't even the only recognized genders in the world - consider the hijra in South Asia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijra_(South_Asia)] and the two-spirited Native Americans [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-Spirit].


not only are there people who are neither male nor female, there are those who are both; and those who feel like a tiny box to tick on a job application isn't enough to actually describe them.


then there's the sexuality binary: gay or straight. well what about both? or neither?


 


what about fuck you and your tiny boxes?

aaah, I am the most awkward ever. each time I try to talk on camera it goes terrible, but since I've made about 900 of these re: the road, it's about damn time I actually released one. unfortunately this is it. O_o

just the lines. :)


the finger painting and the "CAN" piece were both done with straight up paint, which doesn't translate as well (looks like an extra unenthusiastic massage).. :/ but I like everything else.

so it's been ages since I've done anything (mostly) for myself (or my own entertainment), what with commissions and HRonTV and things. then, since my Flash program crapped out on me (in the MIDDLE of an animation) and all my animation materials are all packed up, I decided to finally make this. :) it took two days to just do the pen work...(apparently I've moved beyond crosshatching to batshit-crazy-patterning)(my hand hurts)


anyway. if your record is resourced and you can't see it, it's because they're all cleverly disguised as terrible watercolors. (sorry)


 


I've got no clue if anyone will like this. I showed my sister and she was like "that's fantastic!" and I showed my mom and she was like "that's… a thing. that happened."


 


I could upload the lines, if anybody wants them…? *shrug*
