The Gender Ender

The Gender Ender

Thursday 10 November, 2016
A Hole, who is absolutely the end when it comes to social commentary, discusses the consequences of everyone becoming an ‘it’ rather than a ‘he’ or ‘she’.
The story starts here...

a-hole-comments-e1411303494540The success of unisex toilets seems to have encouraged a number of activists to call for a phasing out of genders.

The terms ‘male’ and ‘female’ would apparently become redundant and we’d no longer be referred to as a ‘he’ or a ‘she’ but an ‘it’.

Advocates are promoting a number of social advantages.

For example there would no longer be any need for gay marriage legislation. The current marriage legislation would simply need adjustment to apply to a couple of its rather than a man and a woman.

Gender inequality would be a thing of the past as would gender bending because everyone no matter how bent or broken would still qualify as an it.

The Age of It would spell the end of homophobia although modelling has shown that there could be outbreaks of iticism among persistently deviant male and female groups.

Sex change operations would no longer be relevant unless recidivism sets in and society splits into various iterations.

This landmark social development would undoubtedly face a few teething problems particularly in relation to affairs of the heart. True marriage equality would inevitably result in a number of misf-its.

And of course not all its would be capable of becoming pregnant nor being the cause of it. This could possibly lead to confusion and demand for ref-its.

Its would probably need counselling at school about what sort of it they are or whether perhaps they’re an itsy bit each way.

Itism would mark the end of schools exclusively for boys or girls and presumably sport as well. Loose mauls and scums however could become a lot more enjoyable.

The compelling question however is whether women would become truly equal through their transmogrification to its and would the development of children be affected through the substitution of its for mothers and fathers? My conclusion is that no-one has the slightest bloody idea.

Life is enriched by the infinite variety of people. If we were all reduced to grey genderless its I’m sure we’d all become very disillusioned with life if that was all ‘it’ turned out to be.
