Of course, like the rest of you, my Mom didn't teach me and the greatest majority of my feminine lessons were self taught. Many of the lessons weren't so pretty but I learned and moved on. Sometimes these days, I'm surprised how much I still observe genetic women. Sure I wonder how some got out of the house looking like that, but now I try to understand why the genders are different- other than the obvious.

Somehow I wondered if she was working with some sort of genetic switch going back to the prehistoric human days. I imagined a group of cave women gathering a fresh harvest of berries while they held and took care of the kids. (Yes! I thought of all this and still didn't hold up the line!)
As I took my hot Mocha and headed for the door, I just couldn't put the thought into my purse and I started to wonder about gender multi tasking skills too.
I concluded, Way back in the day, for the most part the prehistoric men had a single task: form a team, hunt a Mastodon and bring home a whole bunch of bacon. So, today's women are better at multi tasking and men at team building. Why? Because we had to as humans. How easy was that? Well we both know these are sweeping generalizations.
But as I do think about them though from this transgender outpost I occupy and I can see why over the centuries, many cultures revered us for our knowledge while in so many others, we were hated and killed. (Today)
The sad truth is all too often ignorance is power and the transgender tribe has so much to offer if we are given a chance.
