A Holiday Message for Cross-Dressers and the Transgendered

Recently I filled out a form at the school's office for counseling services. (Don't ask.) Under "sex," they actually had three choices; "male," female," or "other."

I was reminded of that today, when I read this little gem from the wires of the Associated Press, as to how women are able to keep their balance while pregnant. It seems that minor differences with men in their midsection allow them to adjust their center of gravity:

"Harvard anthropology researcher Katherine Whitcome found two physical differences in male and female backs that until now had gone unnoticed: One lower lumbar vertebrae is wedge-shaped in women and more square in men; and a key hip joint is 14 percent larger in women than men when body size is taken into account."

So, even if you undergo a sex change operation, you still have a lot of explaining to do, don't you think?

Or don't you?
