Betty's Story

Gwenda and Meghan redress the gender balance on the Hugo ballot through the magic of parallel-universe-portal Internet software.

It's nice (or maybe it's depressing?) to know that somewhere in the multiverse George is talking about how to get men onto the ballot.

But what's really interesting to me is reading Betty's story.

(Kind of humbling, actually, all that that reveals about my oh-so-very-posthuman future...)

Very cool and amusing. And definitely possible. ;-)

After reading through the related discussion on Making Light, a friend of mine also thought of regender.

Except that she decided to use it on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Saudi Arabia.

hmmmm, raised by a militant feminist I'm wondering if we will ever get past the trouble with gender to the land where he/she reflects simply the biological

and I'm uncomfortable with gender-as-choice
