What if Gender is Nothing but a Mindset

We are born out of a body.

During our prenatal time we enjoy infinite possibilities. Sentient beings transitioning thanks to the action of genes and hormones.

We grow, isolated in a womb: a biological world-system; a flesh-screen with no images. Meanwhile, on the other side, our dichotomous costume boy or girl is being weaved.

But, what if gender and sex are nothing but a mindset?

Sexual differentiation is not easy nor is it determined a priori. It differentiates us and provides us with an individual identity that, broadly speaking, we would classify clumsily into the categories of man and woman. But these categories are clearly insufficient.

This project is raising awareness and reframing the general idea about sex and gender; where variation and randomness are seen as virtues, not as threats.
