Differentiated Gender Techniques?

Everybody gets unsolicited e-mail, and when I get it, it is usually automatically sent to the "Spam" folder. This one (which I present to you below) came in the other day from an undisclosed source and somehow avoided detection by my spam filter. It speaks volumes to where we are as a people as regards our sense of identity (and our problems with grammar). We are so concerned with our outward appearances that we fail to see the changes that such concerns are creating  within us. It is a reflection of our desire to control our bodies and to claim ownership of this temporal form which I suggest might also be a reflection of our desire to control God. When I hear someone claim that they feel trapped in their body, or that the gender that they were physically given is not their "gender identity," I start to wonder where such thoughts will eventually lead. Perhaps it is what leads to the never ending quest for perfection, shape changing, or body mutilation, the futile attempt of which undoubtedly affects the underlying spiritual self.

As you read the following flyer for an upcoming "medical" conference, please note the concluding invitation "to learn, network and establish fellowship with the best of breeds". I guess that means that neither you nor I would be welcome.

I sure hope my spam filter catches the flyer for "Undifferentiated Gender Techniques" before it hits my inbox.
