Gender by Katerina Jebb for PURPLE #34 the LOVE issue

In greek mythology, the androgyne was a combination of both sexes. this round human with four legs, four arms, and two heads was so powerful that it defied the gods, who were forced to cut it in two, leading to strict sexual differentiation — each part looking for the other: love, the lost half. Still today, medical institutions determine the gender of a newborn to be either masculine or feminine, and nothing in between.
