I love how accepting native americans were. I wish it could still be that way.

~cuddles~ They were even allowed to marry men.

Love you!

And valued them as different, but equal! How refreshing is that?!

gender flexibility in any individual is welcomed as a rare and precious aspect of human experience, a special talent to live life in a fresh, spontaneously authentic way that enriches and empowers the lives of all in the community.

That is a refreshing perspective on gender identity!

I think we are slowly moving in that direction in American society, but the process seems to be painfully slow.

Sometimes it seems so very slow, Glenn! But there is forward movement, despite the hatemongers out there! *hug*
