Though we all were born into the world without being told let alone have the decision to appear as male or female or even something else. If we are privileged, our answers would either be male or female based on your reasons.
I am not trying to tempt anybody reading this right now but I have my reasons for my writing. In my several personal chats with friends and people around me, there are several views about gender, male or female but I feel it’s not enough to satisfy me. Thus, I now through it open to you and would like you to air your views as regards to this topic.
By reincarnation, I mean natural re-birth or coming back to life after death through birth. At this juncture, and point blank it is void and unreal to many of us including me. But let’s still consider our capabilities, status, challenges and constraints among the gender class and try to consider which gender would be perfect for our being.
For instance, many men would prefer being men while some would consider being ladies but for somebody like me, I will settle at being what I am. At the point of my writing this, Ezinne my immediate sister has this to say: “Wahala for women, I would like to a man if there is a second chance”. In another interview with my aunty, she said: “I prefer being a man than woman”. On the side of men, John prefers being a woman reason because he would like to nurse babies. That’s sound so funny.
In conclusion to this discussion, I sincerely want to believe that we are specially made the creator for a specific duty. One male and the other female but all were born to fit into the system and all working for the good of the society. Despite certain claims by people and mostly scholars, it should be admitted that both male and female are created equal and thus no gender is greater than the other. They are all same and equal in their respective roles. The power is beyond our control to choose whether to be male or female or even hybrid.
