What would your life be like if you were born the opposite sex?
It's an interesting question, especially in the light of recent anti-women comments like Rush Limbaugh calling an advocate for free and available birth control a slut on his radio program. It's a clear sign that we do not yet live in a post-gender world.
Rewrite your own life story by changing your gender.
The goal here is to avoid obvious traps of gender bias or stereotypes. If you're a guy who loves football, still love football. If you're a girl who trades stocks for a living, still trade stocks for a living. The only thing you want to change is your gender.
Imagine the differences in the ways your parents raised you. Would you have still gone to the same college? Which activities would you have done in high school? What kind of person are you going to date now?
The best part of this story is that the origin of it doesn't have to be explicit. In fact, it's best if it's not. Don't make this about gender. Make this about revealing another part of you. Same personality. Just a different body to hold it in.
