Our true humanity is our unlimited soul
The idea of man and woman, male and female, and masculinity and femininity, are the yin and yang or polar opposites of what we term as life. From all mortal perspective, it's either/or and the inanimate forms of life — the sexless other. Some refer to it as androgyny relative to forms that breathe but hermaphrodites in reproduction.
For most of our human years of life on this planet, the objectification of our humanity has been based on that observation, with anything outside of square to the mould a deviation.
In spite of being a universe that can exhaust our imagination in scope, this seemingly complete order is an imperfect universe, which fascinates the curiosity of those inclined to think. Way beyond our thoughts exists the enlightened perception of perfection with none of the limitations of yin or yang, time or space. Given that the aspect of life that we may refer to as non-existence is inseparable from the notion of existence, it can be felt and is a driving force behind impulses moving always towards perfection.
The idea of our humanity, or what makes us human and separates us from our mere animal nature, is the idea of our true being as transcendental from form. That transcendent concept of our being that some may refer to as spiritual, the more practical-minded may term it as androgynous. However, androgynous is a finite term; therefore, very limited and bound to create social confusion because in some cases, it tries to redefine, challenge or equate with the universal order. The ancient spiritual methodology led to the fusion of opposites as the method for attaining spiritual unification. Hence, females took on masculinity and males took on their femininity. They each took on their opposite as a means of annihilating the perception of being either. This phenomenon is also part of the natural evolution of life.
Much of how we feel comes from the foods and minerals we eat, all of which influence our hormonal development. The Earth is fundamentally feminine energy and converts to male energy with the Y-chromosome factor. All males are born highly feminised and go through a traumatic change during puberty that radically resets the balance in their future development towards greater masculinity. As men get older, they naturally begin to lose the masculine boost. With the depletion of fertile farmlands, the lack of minerals is contributing to this male hormonal decline.
Beyond that is the transformation of what is actually a human spiritual potential: being reduced to a sexual expression. Being sensitive, caring and nurturing, all of which are akin to mothering or feminine behaviour, when displayed or highly developed in males was once considered a sign of their spiritual or artistic development. It has nowadays been conflated with sexual preference. Society on both sides of the moral debate on sexuality miss an important point, adding social pressure that is fuelling perhaps the greatest misconception of our times.
Let's take Ayo Kimathi, aka The Irritated Genie, from one extreme who, perhaps because of his youth, limits as macho what it means to be a man, to the liberal who takes any feminine attribute in a man as a sign of being gay — or at least a frustrated “homosexual” needing liberation — to an ultraliberal who would contend that no differences exist. All are purely psychological positions not supported by universal law that have become propaganda tools on which social pressures are built.
The reality is our humanity is neither male nor female, and not based on procreation or preference. Our true humanity is our unlimited soul, which is beyond all the animal attributes we ascribe to it.
Yes, we have an experience that we call mankind, which has a history and a DNA, but that does not define who or what we are. We are capable of much more; in fact, infinitely capable because we are infinitely more.
When we acknowledge people's true humanity, then the question of their inalienable rights is based on the undeniable nature of their humanity and not their preferences.
