It describes the plight of a TV series family in which the adult children try extraordinarily hard to appease a difficult .. often abusive … parent, to no avail. The article also included many excellent links to the various theories about this familial discord – including a link to “Schema” (not schemer) theory. This was a new rabbit hole for us .. and down we went for a look.
Two hours later we had discussed DNA, sex, gender, chromosomes, parental responses to gender fluidity, parenting and supporting a transitioning child, social responses to transitioning children and adults, challenges in sports, the relatively short history of a binary world, historical and cultural attitudes to gender diversity, the social and economic reasons for some of these attitudes .. and much more.
It was time to depart.
Then .. a “History of multiple genders” on Tick Tok popped up on my facebook .. a fascinating chat, though not to be quoted in respected science journals. See link below.
