Five genders

I thought this might be interesting to some of you. This is a group of people who believe that in order to live harmoniously with each other they must all openly accept all five genders. This culture is called Bugi. 

In essense the five genders according to this culture are cismen (oroané), ciswomen (makkunrai), transmen (calalai), transwomen (calabai) and genderqueer (bissu). 

It is sad that westerners are still hung up on the rules of religion and what is considered taboo. On the plus side, it is wonderful to see other cultures moving forward in such a way.

It’s nice to see that humans are capable of getting along and embracing gender diversity.  While our own cultural evolution may take a somewhat different path than theirs, it gives me hope for a better tomorrow.

Spot on analysis of religious cultural conflicts.  Too bad they renamed the gender symbols to be “gay rights”.
