what other difference

Someone wrote…

I wish we could have a world like Soviet Leigh’s ideal. I wish we could forget, no it isn’t forget – I wish we could still see but not weigh gender, sex, race, sexuality, all so heavily. I wish for equality, but it also scares me. I wish it were otherwise but I feel that we – humans – have a need to find and see difference, to categorize and characterize. So a world of equal gender, sex and race, kind of scares me because I worry what other difference we would find and latch on to and divide against ourselves with. I wish and hope that maybe we’ll get better than that, but I don’t know.

What do you think we’d find?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
