Made in the image

         There is something honest about babies and old people. They don’t look like any one gender. They just look like themselves. Perhaps this is what is meant about being made in the image of God.

         Perhaps these beings that are before or beyond the need to be a specific gender, before or beyond sex have it figured out. Perhaps being intersexed or unisexed or unsexed is the answer to a lot of our problems. When we are past the need to be female or male and we get down to the business of being human maybe then is when we start getting to the good stuff, the God stuff.

We don’t divide people as to hair color or height, so why divide them by gender?  Anybody can be a chef or an engineer or a doctor or a parent.  Whatever you have below the belt doesn’t affect what you have between your ears.  Competency isn’t related to gender. Whoever you want to be – do it.  Don’t let someone tell you that you can’t because you are the “wrong” gender.

About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
