Norman O. Brown popularized the new consciousness in his celebration of “polymorphous perverse” sexuality in Love’s Body (1966). Despite or because of the well-publicized goings on at Woodstock in 1969, “The Love Generation” was not the sexual idyll often advertised. ” Indeed, one may wonder whether, not Brown’s Love’s Body, but Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint (1969) with its conventionally-gendered, , sex-addicted antihero should be viewed as the real poster child for the sixties generation.

For example, as noted above, sex researchers believe that transsexuals have genetically induced “female” (or “male”) thought patterns but “male” (or “female) genitals. Also, authors such as Anne Moir (Brain Sex) have propounded the view that male and female brains are systematically different—leading to different behavior patterns in boys and girls and in men and women. There are three flaws with using brain sex differences to justify society’s apartheid of sex. First, as Dr. Fausto-Sterling observed, genetics creates a broad variety of sexual diversification.

Fifteen years later women are still subjugated worldwide, although progress is being made in some places. The worst opprobrium continues to fall upon those transgendered souls who are courageous enough to deny with their own bodies the legitimacy of the apartheid concept. ” I believe we are on the threshold of creating humanity and personhood outside of DNA-driven flesh bodies. We have an opportunity to prevent the creation of a new oppressed class of persons – the transhumans – before such “us versus them” thinking gets culturally embedded, as was the case for millennia-old gender and ethnic oppression.
