Not Quite so Black and White


Blue is for boys, pink is for girls. He has a penis, she has a vagina. It's simple: it's all black and white really, your gender fits your bits. Or so they like to tell us. You see, that's the science they're wont to tell you and it's real easy to grasp. Yeah, sure, easy for them to say. However, science (the real kind) isn't backing them up on this, these days. Oh no, you see, it's not quite so black and white after all.

As The Slate so aptly put it: Sex is Complicated.
