Often called, "Androgynes"...

"Androgynes are already among us in the forms of Keanu Reeves, Leonardo DiCaprio, Natalie Imbruglia, Billy Corgan, Daniel Johns, Winona Ryder, Kate Moss, and most notably the rock stars who pretty much pioneered it all: David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox and Boy George(and more recently, Marilyn Manson, and Brian Molko from Placebo). Future androgynes won't be categorically gay, but they will look like they could be either male or female. It also seems fitting that most people will be by nature, bisexual. This does not mean they will be randy little threesome junkies, merely that they fall in love with people's mind, not their gender or appearance."

Androgynes Poster In Finland

"I spent a sabbatical semester in Finland. Soon after arriving, my attention was riveted by a poster logo in every shop window. Although I could not read a word, the logo image would not let go. I had to have a copy. My host talked a shopkeeper out of his display. The poster announced a women's consciousness raising workshop. Each person in the logo pair was their own androgynous Shiva Shakti. Jung would not have been surprised at this expression of the universal archetypes of anima and animus.

The union of Shiva and Shakti was a powerful metaphor in the resolution of the paradox. In the Hindu tradition, their union was symbolized by the hermaphrodite (incest) aspect of Shiva, Ardhanarisvara. Seen here in one of my favorite statues, Shiva and Shakti were, at one and the same time (family members), a physical consummation of the divine union and an intimation of the union within (Hindu traditioners believe that the combination of these two family members were believed to be "divine"). Their intercourse embraced all conflicting energies (or genders)implied by the masculine feminine dichotomy whether as rational versus intuitive or lower chakras versus upper chakras."

  1. Hey Admin...

    I'd love to hear(read) your insight on Beyonce's "Upgrade U" video... She gender swaps in the vid.



    "Beyonce Knowles likes dressing as a boy.
    The singer dons male clothes so she can go running in New York incognito.

    Beyonce, 27, said: "I love being able to run in Central Park. Just me and my trainer. I dress up like a boy and then no-one knows it's me. I just keep moving."

    Beyonce's latest hit 'If I Were a Boy' details what she would like to do if she were able to swap gender for a day.
