In the real world, those with physically female bodies simply follow a different and inarguably superior system of ethics. Ethics simply cannot apply equally to the sexes if it is the fact - and it is - that any serious transgressor of ethics is VASTLY more likely to be male almost to the point that he can be assumed to be male.
Er what evidence do you have of that? And do you know why? As an analogy a disproportionate number of black males are imprisoned in America, do you know why?
Why do you suppose there is a female and a male sex?
Also violence is a very useful and highly desirable trait depending on the situation.
Unknown means unknown.

As to the failings of men: interesting to observe the GBLTQ community has become a fixture in our society. In time it will be commonplace and not long after sex will lose it sense of taboo altogether. I think personality role models will yield as well to less pronounced, sexually centrist ones. Men will no longer be men nor women women. There is already a great deal of this going on now, but nearly enough. Good to see. Too bad I won't be here when it all works out: Race, ethnicity, gender all coming together. Reminds me of Virginia Woolf's Orlando (see the movie with Tilda Swinton)
I agree with you in root - and perhaps in stem, but not in branch.
First, The LGBT coommunity gets 4 letters. That's it.
Once they went to 5 letters, I knew it was going to be a disaster. Now we're where? 10 letters? Are there two X's now?
LGBT or everybody's Q and that's that. I'm too old for this.
I agree that one of the biggest transformations we're coming into is the transformation of gender roles. I do not see an evening of gender roles, but an apportionment along a continuum that fits typical personalities better.
