I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.
Egoism or altruism?
It is not a battle of egoism vs altruism, both of these compulsions are logical responses to our biological awareness depending on the circumstances. The self will always take initial priority as far as personal health goes (food, water, etc). Upon satisfying these needs, we are then able to adhere to our innate desire to cultivate the intimacy of companionship and community.
"I think a lot of people like to see gender as this scale of blue and pink," Emma, a 20-year-old college student, told the magazine. "I never really identified with either side of that, or even in between blue and pink. It’s so much more complicated — my identity varies so much on any given day. Sometimes I tell people I’m gold or something."
I appreciate that it includes a bit from the original article, which clarifies:
"This growing community encompasses people who see themselves as agender (neither male nor female), bi-gender (both genders) and gender-fluid (shifting from male to female)."
THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE FIRST TIME I HAVE SEEN A PHOTO SET OF AGENDER PEOPLE ON THIS SITE!!!

Nooooo theres a difference between sex and gender! You get your SEX from your father. Gender has a lot of other influences; like any other identity its extremely complicated and often impossible to isolate single causes, like genes. For many people their gender matches their sex, but to generalize is to neglect trans and gender queer people entirely.
I just hope y’all mixed up gender and sex, but dont. Theres a distinction. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_and_gender_distinction
