Tonight I learned stories like the one told in the beginning of this film are much more common than I realized. The inherent rigidity of gender roles coupled with our inability to see beyond them has resulted in and continues to result in heinous and inhumane practices.

Gender roles are created by society not biology. The fact that observance of even a slight deviation from an expected gender role could cause a person to go into such a rage that they would physically and/or psychologically harm someone is beyond a tragedy. The truth is there is a full spectrum of gender expression and it's time we grew up and out of our fear of it.

It is true that the gender roles are created by the society, not biology. All people have a different character and they behave differently. If there occur some variations in the gender then people will discard then form the society and there are many people like this who suffer from gender problems.wholesale ipads for cheap
