Children on the front line in gender battle

THE animals went in two by two. Or did they? The account of Noah’s Ark didn’t sit well in Judith Lorber’s ideal ‘gender-free’ world. If Martin Luther King wanted his children to experience racial equality, she dreamed of a future where there would be ‘gender equality’:

When we no longer ask ‘boy or girl?’ in order to start gendering an infant, when the information is as irrelevant as the color of a child’s eyes . . . only then will men and women be socially interchangeable and really equal. And when that happens there will no longer be any need for gender at all.[1]

That’s why, in 1986, Judith Lorber wrote ‘Dismantling Noah’s Ark’.[2] This article argued that:

· Gender is a social construct;

· What is constructed can be deconstructed;

· A modern social order is possible without gender.

Thirty-four years ago most people regarded such ideas as far-fetched, if not insane. But today around twenty nations have passed laws affirming the ‘right’ to ‘change sex’, including Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Malta, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom, Uruguay and Vietnam. In such countries, a man may legally take a female name and be treated for all legal purposes as a woman, or vice versa. He may be given a new birth certificate. In some of these countries, there is no requirement for such a person to undergo any medical treatment such as hormonal treatment or surgical ‘reassignment’. A physically normal man may demand access to women-only facilities such as swimming pool changing areas or public toilets if he ‘identifies’ as female.
