"Post-Gender Environment"

Cala --- Transgener In Second Life has an article called "Second Life is a Post-Gender environment".

If you cannot see someone's gender, race, age, or other factor during your 1st meeting, you must evaluate them based on the core person that they present, that is to say, the core person as that person defines it, not you the viewer. I call this core person their Identity, the one that they own and define as they choose, to differentiate from your preconceptions of it.
