Q32. Suddenly the entire world is magically changed. Now you exist in a world utterly devoid of gender. All bodies are hermaphroditic, utterly androgynous in appearance, both male and female at the same time. The culture reflects this, as does all human interaction. You, however, are still yourself inside, with all of your memories of living in our world as it is now. Your feelings are intact, only your flesh has been changed. In this new world, everyone dresses, acts, and lives however they feel at the time, and there is no such thing as being male or being female. You alone remember the world of gender. In such a world, would you still need to dress like a woman?

A. (-10) Without question. I really love being feminine. It would be a very disturbing world, too.
A. (-5) Yes. I really enjoy expressing femininity. I would miss it a lot.
A. (0) I guess it just would not matter anymore, would it? This is my dream world.
A. (5) I don't know. It would be easier to live how I wish though.
A. (10) how I dress is not really the issue for me. I would just dress how I felt.
