“No gender?” editorial. Right on!


I am absolutely in agreement [with Fred Ryan’s recent editorial]. I even see it as a small step towards training equality into our youth. Recently wed, I chose my best friend to be my “best man”. She happily accepted. Our grandkids, 2 girls and a boy, were offered up as flower girls and ring-bearer. Others were worried the boy, 2 years old, would drop the rings. Not at all, he’ll be a flower person, and the eldest girl the ring bearer, simple. Why do so many people still gender-identify so many roles?
