How do you feel about this?

No not about the genderswap or the "Treat you like a Lady", but more about the fact that such actions do not create any stereotypical feelings between real friends or lovers. Or thats what i am hoping atleast! :D Many time i see this kinda mutual respect and i love seeing it from people such as you, but almost as often i see taking it without any sense of realism. AKA the though that its somehow message about "gender equality", when its actually just about "gender/personal respect" of 2 mutually caring/loving people. :D

And as usualy; so for bable. But id REALLY love to know, really love to know your thoughts since whenever this switching comes up i see both the sane "gender/personal respect" and the often pretensious message shoveling "gender equality"?

Well I really do want gender equality and such being a feminist but that wasn't really meant to be a message with this piece.
This was definitely more of a nothing would change with our relationship and love if one of us or both was suddenly physically different. Not even necessarily gender too! Like if Brendan was in a horrific car accident and his face was scraped off i'd still be there for him and love him or any other number of drastically altering situations. As long as hes the same person on the inside I'd love him...he or she it dosn't matter. I'd turn lesbian for him if he was a woman or if he suddenly realized he was a woman trapped in a mans body (not that I think he is just posturing what ifs).

Like I said in the description we are very comfortable with our sexuality and opposite gender selves and perhaps thats why we can communicate so well? I don't mind acting very guyish in the proximity of anyone, even girly girls. Though I do have very distinctly female perceptions that I am comfortable with. Its more fun to be two halves of a whole rather than pretending you shouldn't or feeling pressured into gender roles.

Yeah thats what i was thinking about. Respect of genders leading to harmonany, since genders can never be EQUAL by themselves (aka always soemthing differant about being girl or guy no matter how special your personality is) but more that they "can be equally respected" ;)

Men and women are differant, more or less depending on person, but respect is the key to make the "equality among eyes of all" possilbe.

Now yeah and yeah i agree even as i am not feminist, Its kinda hard sometimes to discern you people since i get lot of flack from "shadow feminists" who demand equality in unrealistic or unrelated ways.


PS. So if guy was swapped to girl he could still treat you like lady and not be considered smug?
Just hoping that as a guy its all about human equality. Equality in REALISTIC sense that genders are differant but should be respected equally. Not wrenched into looking like each other. ;)

PPS. Especially worried sometimes how daddies get the shaft often in the past :)
