Beelzebub: Yeah, I asked some people from the Watch Tower society about that. They knocked at my door (usually nobody wants to have a talk with them). They tried all the time to convince me...LOL...and I forced them to answer my questions. They gave me a lot of answers and information. They said the same like your teacher about marriage, sex and homosexuals (when I asked them about homosexuals they become almost hysterical...LOL...funny old ladies). Gender classification? You mean women are not inferior? :op ********** Yeah. There's really no nice way to say no to those people. I tried saying: "Sorry, I don't speak english (fake an accent) and can't read your brochures. I can read only Portuguese." Then, they'd send a Portuguese guy over to my house. That's nuts. Gotta admire they're passion though. I basically tell them that I'm a sado-masochistic devil worshiping warlock, and they usually leave me alone.

Gender classification deals with the idea that ideas of masculinity and feminity are created by culture. Thus these distinctions are created to allow injustic to women and homosexuals. Sex is an unnatural act. I find sociology really interesting. It unearths all the hidden assumptions we make about society, and that certain things are not inherent faults in our nature, but are created by socialization. Great stuff, blew my mind. If I wasn't so intent on medicine... who knows. Studies on deviancy interest me especially. You should take a sociology course if you ever get the chance (if you haven't already).
