Out of Context

About a week ago, we ran a post called Peace on Earth, which showed a line from a submission. The author felt our editing took the line out of context to the point where it misrepresented their views, and kindly let us know this in the comments. We’re sincerely sorry about this, and we’d like to offer you the whole submission now:

Binary gender is just another prison that our society builds around us from the moment we are sprung squirming and shrieking into this world. I refuse to passively participate in a system that imposes it’s will on my right to authentic self-expression. I am also thinking that these rigid gender roles are energetically sending everything completely out of whack. The male archetype has grown more aggressive and lacking in compassion and the female archetype is losing her goddesshood. Now more than ever, we need to embrace non-binary gender roles. I am starting to think that peace on earth could have something to do with man embracing his inner woman and woman embracing her inner man.

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
