A closer look at cultural diversity

What is the definition for “woman” these days?

I was reading an article on CNN today about a transgendered woman who was kicked out of the Miss Universe pageant, but then later readmitted.

The Miss Universe Organization said she met the “gender recognition requirements.”

I’m not sure what those requirements are or how you could go about finding out if someone meets them – well legally.

If someone considers himself a woman or a man, can you tell him that he isn’t?

Can I call myself a man and keep all of my womanly attributes and still wear women’s clothing?

With all of the new medical technologies and changing social rules, are the definitions for men and women changing?
