I'll say this, and this has nothing to do with gender or sexuality: You do not want to get licked in the face repeatedly by another human being. You just don't. It's not pleasant.

One of the hardest questions I have been asked is How will you manage the army if you are having menstrual cramps? I have also been asked if I will have the courage to face criminals. My answer is that courage is not a matter of gender.
courage is not a matter of gender.

Religiosity turns out to be the best indicator of civic involvement: it's more accurate than education, age, income, gender or race.
Depression as one example is an illness that has a chemical basis, but also is deeply embedded in cultural norms about gender, social class, race.
If a person is homosexual by nature - that is, if one's sexuality is as intrinsic a part of one's identity as gender or skin color - then society can no more deny a gay person access to the secular rights and religious sacraments because of his homosexuality than it can reinstate Jim Crow.
Given that sexual orientation is innate and that we are all, in theological terms, children of God, to deny access to some sacraments based on sexuality is as wrong as denying access to some sacraments based on race or gender.
If folks can learn to be racist, then they can learn to be anti racist. If being sexist ain't genetic, then, dad gum, people can learn about gender equality.

All human beings bear God's image and must be respected for what each person is. Therefore, no external description of one's being, whether based on race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, can properly be used as the basis for either rejection or discrimination.
Your race and gender don't change, but you can choose to change your political affiliation at will.

Races don't fall in love, genders don't fall in love: Individuals fall in love. We all should be free to marry the person that we love.
The modern campus is deeply obsessed by race and gender, and not much else.
Recently, John and I got to go to Selma and perform it on the same bridge that Martin Luther King walked over. Once a landmark of a divided nation, the spirit of this bridge now for all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or social status. This bridge was built on hope and welded with compassion. Common
Gender mattered a whole lot less to Shakespeare than it seems to matter to us.
Gender relations are a sad story of men talking trash about women all over the world.
What they're still unsure about, particularly some moderate Republicans, we know gender there is difference, I think Donald Trump has to seal the deal by letting people feel comfortable to vote for him.
When we use stereotypes, we take in the gender, the age, the color of the skin of the person before us, and our minds respond with messages that say hostile, stupid, slow, weak. Those qualities aren't out there in the environment. They don't reflect reality.
Gender equality and empowerment of women is key to the success of the Millennium Development Goals. Not only as a specific target, but for the goals in general. Women bear a heavier burden of the world's poverty than men, because of the discrimination they face in education, health care, employment and control of assets.
I think the way we look upon gender is that we're realizing that we're not that different, which is a good thing. The United States needs to come further with that. In the Scandinavian countries, we've come further when it comes to gender politics and how we look upon gender and how women are treated in general.
Childbearing is the most consistent of human events. Male and female alike, we have all been gestated inside a woman's body.

If I'm good at something, I'm good at something, and if I'm bad at something, I'm just bad at something. Gender shouldn't have anything to do with any of my work or anything I produce or create.

The '90s were extremely diverse, almost like a laboratory of the new century. There was much experimenting around, in politics, economics, gender and family structures, and also in fashion. There was a cloud of possibilities which kept us all dizzy.
There's going to be biological differences between the genders. There's going to be biological differences between two women or two men. There's biological differences between all of us. My concern is, why are we so concerned about it?
claims about what's 'natural' have long been used to reinforce traditional gender roles and values. ... Even the notion that women should have children at all is based on the idea that a woman's inherent and most important role is that of mother. Shockingly, men's 'innate' roles are a lot more fun than the ones bestowed on women.
Not unlike gender reassignment surgery, someone determines that they are of a different race on the inside and they wish to surgically correct that.
The politics of transgender identity are really complicated. And the debate over how much of gender is biological and how much of it is socially constructed is a very complex debate.
I had observed people whose identity crises around race seemed analogous to other people's identity crises around gender.
I never think that being a woman is so hard. Maybe don't think about your gender and be confident as you go forward rather than try to single yourself out as some underserved part of filmmaking.
