A Tumbling World

Imagine a world where the males and the females are the minority, are genders deemed "abnormal," are burdened with the almost daily need to fight for their rights.

The world is pink and brown, perhaps, while the gay and the lesbian communities are the legal "sexes" -- would World Wars I and II be part of history?

Would we have the same problems that our dichotomous society now have?

What would be the meaning of virile? Of grace?

And would masculinity and femininity be abnormal terms?

Would I be insulted if I were called macho? Would I take it against the majority gay community?

Would I be discriminated against for being quiet, for speaking softly, and for being righteously angry when the situation demanded?
