When People get upset over historical events, it is IMPERATIVE they do this one thing.

When reviewing Historical events, it is imperative to balance our emotional reaction of the past with the appropriate amount of humility.

If events had occurred differently before we ourselves were conceived, it is quite possible a different human spirit would exist in place of our own, we would therefore no longer have ever existed.

I find that 99% or more of all people who are enraged about historical events that occurred before they themselves were conceived refuse to humble themselves by realizing that they themselves would have never existed if the past had been different before they were conceived.

I can be upset that Adolph Hitler existed and rose to power by inflaming pre-adults into believing they were a superior race, but if Hitler had never existed, neither would anyone who was born after Hitler became relevant and powerful in Germany.

If you could chose whether or not Adolph Hitler ever existed, but  you would suddenly have never existed as a direct result of this choice, would you still chose for Hitler to have never have existed?

We can never own the past without having lived in it, this is a reality that many refuse to acknowledge and to be humbled by.

Mainstrean Media released deceptively edited 911 footage of the Pentagon Airplane crash that fueled conspiracy theorists ever since.

I don't know if it was intentional, or just some intern carelessly prepping the Pentagon video clip that would be released by The AP, but the video footage that was released was shortened in such a way as to create just enough doubt that it was an airplane that hit the Pentagon.

I recently came across the part of the footage that was missing, and I debunked it as being a missile, and now I can't find that video link online. Now THAT'S a conspiracy.

Here is what The Associated Press released on YouTube.

The above footage cuts off critical moments before the explosion that easily and coherently allows me to explain why this is was an airplane that hit the Pentagon.

I did find another video of this same angle on Pinterest, except the video appears to have been zoomed in, once again leaving me to wonder if the real conspiracy was making the video look it could be a missile when it was not. Click here to see the zoomed in perspective, which also may add enough doubt to satiate most Conspiracy Theorists.

I managed to find the version of the Pentagon 911 plane crash video that claims it was a missile. What is actually so crazy is this is the only video on Youtube that I could find that actually provides the evidence other two videos did not provide that allowed me to debunk the claim that this was a missile.


This is a conspiracy within a conspiracy that actually reveals the truth. I will add why this video explains this is a plane crash and not a missile crash in the future. And my evidence goes well beyond the one frame just before the explosion that shows a white blurry object in the far right part of the video image.

Check back and I will provide the explanation.

Medicare Discharge Appeal Criteria KILLS Seniors and Protects ER EMTALA VIOLATORS.

I am fuming right now. According to Medicare Discharge Appeal Criteria, an ER Patient cannot appeal being discharged from the ER if they have not yet been admitted to a Hospital Room!

This is pure insanity!

Congress passed a law called EMTALA to specifically ensure that any Hospital patient not be discharged if their condition is not stable. Is Medicare now stating that the ER is not a Hospital and therefore Patients who are not stable can be legally dumped as long as the ER does not document the decline in the Patient's health and just discharges the patient instead?

Is Medicare following a policy that literally spits on the very purpose that EMTALA was created?  YES!


"To appeal your discharge, you must be an inpatient. There is no official way to appeal your release if you are in observation or outpatient status. You can ask your doctor to tell you your status. At your admission and again before discharge, the hospital staff must give you a form called "An Important Message from Medicare." This form includes the phone number for the QIO and tells you what you need to do to appeal the discharge. If the hospital staff did not give you this form, ask for it. By law, the hospital must provide you with this information."  end quote.

The above quote just spit on the very concept of EMTALA and the illegality of Patient Dumping!  This is insanity. I have found this over and over and over when it comes to finding advocates for Healthcare patients, Patient Advocates are VERY SUBMISSIVE and will ALWAYS SIDE with what they are told by the very people who are AGAINST Patients Rights.

Repeating the specific sentence from the above quote. "There is no official way to appeal your release if you are in observation or outpatient status." end quote. 

How can anyone who knows what EMTALA actually means utter such completely incorrect advice? And if the advice is correct, then what a corrupt system we have in place for protecting those who have violated the EMTALA rights of their patients.

Medicare or the people who created the page I am quoting from are apparently saying that the ER can violate a patient's EMTALA rights if the patient has not officially been admitted to a hospital room! How can Medicare sanction illegality and deny appeals that are based on illegal ER actions?

So when Hospital patients are piled up in the hallways of ER rooms waiting to get a room, in theory they could be discharged and the patient would have no right to appeal the discharge decision. This is beyond outrageous. And this situation will only get worse as the present Administration allows 2 million Undocumented to enter the U.S. every year.

Playing the "What if" Game regarding the 2022 Oscar Awards and the Slap heard Round the World.

After the Chris Rock "G.I. Jane" joke, what if Jada Pinkett Smith had started to cry, gotten up, and asked Will Smith to escort her out of the Academy Awards Show, and slowly, while softly sobbing, left the Academy Awards Show with Will Smith by her side, and that long, flowing green dress lingering behind them?

What would have happened?

Would not both Jada and Will have been the toast of the World? Would not the Academy, and possibly Chris Rock, actually pursued both Will and Jada and begged them to come back to the show?

Instead we got the Slap heard round the World.

I mention this because Black Anger sometimes wins out over Black Vulnerability, perhaps because African Americans don't believe others would have empathy for them when they feel they have been dissed?

Perhaps owning one's own vulnerability is the secret to success?

Which is why I LOVE this Crest commercial so much. The final shot of this commercial is so memorable, awe inspiring, and full of so much positivity I hope people of all colors embrace the message, and ironically the final shot was about as long as the slap heard round the world.
I think this kid Amarr Wooten ... Lead role, has a future in Hollywood, bigly. And props to the co-stars Camryn Hamm ... Girl in driver's seat of car, Kimberly Hamm ... Girl in car with phone who both came off as totally believable and likeable.

The commercial is well shot, directed and performed. Would have loved to have seen a wider shot approaching the car but they packed a lot into a 15 second spot.

Owning a moment in time with authenticity apparently surpasses lashing out in anger.

COVID-19 Protocols the Media Never Questioned Raises more Questions.

What COVID-19 related Big Tech Censorship revealed was there was only one way forward, "Do as the alleged Medical Experts say to do and do not disagree with their message in any way".
We are a civilization of experimenters. A significant number of both Doctors and Patients quickly chilled to the idea that that there was only one combination to combat COVID-19: Social Distancing, Masking, Vaccines, and Home Quarantine.

Questions that were not allowed to be discussed by people with questions included... 
  • Was it possible that breathing in and out of a mask all day long might have unknown, detrimental consequences? 
  • Was it possible that after 20 years of never coming up with an overall effective flu vaccine, Big Pharma would come up with an effective Vaccine for COVID-19 in less than one year's time?
  • Was it ethical to project the theory that a Vaccine was human kind's only hope against COVID-19 as a fact?
  • Why do many who protest what they see as COVID-19 tyranny  believe that sneezing does not spread COVID-19?
  • In the very early stages of a possible COVID-19 infection, when a person was asked to Home Quarantine for 7 to 14 days, why were there no Home Quarantine Studies being done to see if a certain combination of activities might actually slow down the  growth of a COVID-19 infection? Thus allowing a person's anti-bodies to do a better job of preventing COVID-19 from progressing into a life threatening situation.
  • Why was Donald Trump so mercilessly attacked when he asked a question about COVID-19 treatment ideas that was meant to elicit a discussion about possible COVID-19 treatment options above and beyond Vaccine and Masks since the Vaccine was still over 6 months away from being available?
  • How were people supposed to react to accusations of Medical Racism in Underserved Communities after decades of Undocumented Migration producing concentrated pockets of Under Served living in big cities and in cramped, over crowded quarters, who may have actually been driving up COVID-19 numbers and inevitable fears and Government controls and thus causing others who lived in less cramped conditions to be just as restricted in their daily activities when they were not the cause of the inflated COVID-19 Numbers?
  • Why were obese people upset that not everyone else wanted to completely comply with insufferable COVID-19 restrictions because of the obese person's obesity?
  • Why were Family members blockaded from any type of visitation with COVID-19 Hospital Patients, never getting to see them before they passed?
  • Why were COVID-19 Hospital Patients kept imprisoned to the point where one wonders if lack of movement contributed to their demise?
  • Was it possible that placing numerous COVID-19 Hospital Patients in the same large room actually contributed to their death? 
The present but temporary 2022 respite from COVID-19 restrictions has made Anti-Big Tech dig in their heels and say "Never Again" when nothing has actually changed other than a COVID-19 respite for the time being.

It seems as if what COVID-19 ultimately created was a method for Government to control entire populations who were never asked to participate in any type of voluntary, home based clinical trial experiments during Home Quarantine to see if there were any ways to reduce the overall personal impact of COVID-19, and that stunning oversight continues to this day, in large part because both Big Tech and our Mainstream media seemed to like it that way.

An Internet Innovation that could create product royalties for a viewer's favorite websites.

This is so darn logical in regards to Internet ads I cannot understand why it is not being done. All I want on my favorite websites that I want to support is a text box where I can type in what I am looking for and if I know the site where the product resides, I can type that in as well.
After I hit click the I am transported to either the site where I intend on purchasing a product, or to a page with a few choices. If I Purchase something the site I was on gets a percentage residual. What a great way to support your local online newspaper or blogger. 

Rather than show me an ad of a product that I looked at a week ago and may have already purchased or am no longer interested in, why not just put an empty text box on the site I am on and I type in what I am looking for?

What am I missing? 
Why doesn't the above already exist?

Debunking Barbara Kay's Queen Gambit's review about a woman never becoming World Chess Champion.

Barbara Kay's opine about the Pay TV hit show "The Queen's Gambit" attempts to highlight what the show won't, that no woman has actually won a World Championship in Chess, ever.

Kay tries to justify the premise that a woman may never win a chess championship by pointing out that the male's steadfast desire to win a chess match even while Rome burns in the background and soon the male chess player will be decapitated, yet continues to play on nonetheless, as reason enough to accept that a woman will never win a chess championship because women know when to fold and know when to run, whereas men don't.

However, the foundational reasons she refers to about the history of chess skips over the real reason we have not had a woman world chess champion, and it can be summed up in one word, incentive.

In my opinion it would be ridiculous to make an assumption about any person, place or thing as never being equivalent to another person place or thing if one of the two being compared has never received similar nurturing or support, aka incentive.

If whatever chess championships and prize monies had been equivalently applied to both genders year after year, I believe eventually a female chess champion would have arisen who could have then beaten the male chess champion for the honor World Champion.

Ironically, it would be that same bullheaded, unrelenting male attribute, applied by a male as a coach to prospective female chess players that might become the difference maker.

Visualize it is 1970 and the Female World Chess Champion has a Chess rating of 2100, while the Male Chess Champion has a rating of 2800, yet both players received equal pay outs as they won match after match.

Isn't it logical to assume that great male chess players who themselves all fell short in their attempts to be the Male Chess Champion would not want to get into coaching to bring the World Female Chess Champion Rating above the 2100 where it stands?

I can envision scores of Male Chess Players wanting to be the first to coach a female Chess Player to greatness and attain the allegedly unattainable, the World's best Chess player from either gender.

And while we're at it, if women designed the Chess pieces, that alone might neutralize any alleged advantage men have in the arena of Chess.

CDC 2017-2018 U.S Senior Flu Epidemic cover-up has come back to haunt the World in 2020.

In Italy they are having to decide who gets treated for Coronavirus and who gets turned away. In the U.S. this practice is called EMTALA and is supposed to be illegal. 


If the illegal practice of turning away patients had been exposed during the U.S. Senior Flu epidemic of 2017-2018, this country would have had a huge head start over Coronavirus readiness in 2020 and would have also given the world a heads up about Pandemic readiness. 

Instead the Center for Disease Control covered up the 2017-2018 Senior Death counts until after the 2017-2018 U.S. Senior Flu epidemic had passed.

If my reminders about my Mother's elder abuse / EMTALA violation in the ER in March of 2018 had been taken seriously and actually investigated they would have raised awareness about how fragile our ER readiness was and would have reduced the level of economic upheaval in 2020 being caused by not having enough Hospital beds and ventilators available. And let's not forget not enough masks, gloves, and hospital gowns.

The flatten the curve battle plan is caused in large part by not being health crisis ready because we have too few beds and far too few ventilators.  

How we treat the elderly is where we find our real level of integrity and strength. The CDC covering up our mistreatment of the elderly during the "2017-2018 U.S. Senior Flu epidemic" that was never reported as such... is now being paid forward. 

We are reaping what we sowed back in 2017-2018.

Good Buy Kodachrome, A Super 8mm Film Tribute to Kodak's Kodachrome 40.

This was a Tribute Video I edited from many of the places I visited in Southern California and shot Super-8mm Film. It was a tribute to the end of Kodak's Kodachrome 40. Unlike the ending, I now find that Kodak Ecktachrome and Kodak's Super 8mm Negative Film Stocks are quite good.  Film Origination, Digital Destination.

How False News Picture Captions Dumb Down Society.



If you read the description of the above photo, the presumably Unarmed, Undisguised Female Protestor apparently is not being physically assaulted and brutalized by an armor encased Law Enforcement Person, she instead being "Detained".

When words are used to camouflage the real impact of a Photo, we either challenge it, or grow dumber by accepting the false caption.

Begging all the Online News Media Outlets that don't Accept or Allow Reader Comments, PLEASE don't use Rhetorical Questions in your Headlines.

I Can't believe this is a thing. Online New sites allow their authors to use rhetorical questions in their headlines, yet the readers of the article have no way to leave a comment.

This is really a big deal. It's a freaky form of mind control where one is invited to a buffet where there are no utensils or plates.

Republicans biggest Objection to the Affordable HealthCare ACT is this...

There is ONE core issue that will ALWAYS be present no matter which Political party comes up with an Affordable National Healthcare Insurance Plan; Does the plan offer a "Catastrophic Coverage Only" option? 
Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage allows an Enrollee to get a very high Hospital deductible of around 5,000 dollars and in exchange get a significantly lower monthly Health Insurance Premium. 

If a person buys Catastrophic HealthCare Coverage they can "break even" within 2 to 3 years. Break even means if a Catastrophic Healthcare Policy Holder has just one Medical incident that requires Hospitalization and a 5,000 dollar deductible payment, the policy holder STILL starts saving a lot money on monthly premium costs after 2 and 1/2 years from the time they started buying the heavily discounted Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage, versus purchasing more standardized Healthcare Insurance that covers Doctor's visits, Lab procedures, prescriptions, and ER visits.

So what's the problem?

Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage means Hospitalization only coverage, so the Enrollee is not seen regularly by a Doctor nor do they get blood tests. Opponents claim Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage Policy Holders are being selfish because by not being regularly seen by a Doctor or having any tests done, the CHC Policy Holder simply waits until a minor problem becomes big enough to require Hospitalization, and by then the Hospital Deductible has been saved and then some through lower monthly CHC premiums. So the opponents of CHC claim that CHC Enrollees are relying on others who pay for full coverage to cover their Hospital Medical Costs that may have been caused by waiting too long to be seen by a Medical Professional.

The anti CHC argues that people who are healthier still need to pay their fair share now so they too can enjoy great coverage as they get older. The anti CHC followers believe that if the Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage enrollee had seen a doctor regularly, they might have avoided the much bigger Hospitalization expense that came as a result of not being seen regularly by a Doctor.

That in a nutshell is the perpetual Democrat vs Republican argument in regard to Healthcare. Democrats don't want Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage options, Republicans do. Both sides go round and round making the other side look bad.

Of course Republicans and probably a majority of Americans do not like the idea of paying a penalty if they have no Medical Insurance, and Democrats do not want to see relatively healthy people game the HealthCare Insurance system by purchasing Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage only Health Insurance policies because it creates a smaller overall pool of money for the entire Healthcare Insurance System.

Catastrophic Healthcare Coverage is the single most compelling issue in regards to the entire Affordable Healthcare Act issue. Be aware that both sides feel they are right and compromise does not seem likely or possible.

Perhaps the outside the box solution is to be a more self reliant nation that does not need to be so heavily involved in the World's affairs, this would reduce military budgeting and possibly allow the U.S. to start reducing their budget deficit. This might allow the Government to actually be a behind the scenes supporter of National Healthcare because they could afford it. 

However, this would probably require strict Immigration policies so that the U.S. was not over subsidizing healthcare for an unsustainable number of people. Maybe there is a compromise to be had, lower military spending and build a border wall so that Healthcare pricing can be maintained at a more affordable price in the U.S.

As for Mexico paying for the Border Wall, isn't it possible that Mexican Drug Cartel is purposely scaring people into fleeing Mexico as a way to appease the Mexican Government by reducing Healthcare Costs in Mexico?

The Mexican Drug Cartel is so damn rich they could be subsidizing healthcare in Mexico and be loved by the Mexican People, or, they could murder Mexican citizens, causing them to flee in panic to the U.S. and saving the Mexican Government untold billions in Healthcare related costs, and keeping all of their money for themselves. Seems like Mexico and the Mexican Drug Cartel win, Mexican Migrators and the U.S., lose.

Jussie Smollett Proves that White Privilege and White Entitlement is Alive and Well in Hollywood.

Charlie Sheen was paid more money for ONE half hour episode of Anger Management than Jussie Smollett received in total for the first 54 ONE HOUR Empire episodes he co starred in on Empire! Sure Charlie Sheen is a major talent with decades of experience and Sheen should get more, but 54 times as much? 

It's not as if Sheen did drugs, destroyed Hotel Suites, ran with Prostitutes and even acquired HIV and possibly passed it on, oh wait, yes he did. And there is your White Entitlement / White Privilege on display. I say this as one who disdains the mere mention of White Privilege and White Entitlement, as one who believes that few people can maintain a career unless they have talent thereby negating the benefit of White Privilege and White Entitlement. 

Nobody is condoning the allegations against Jussie Smollett, but when did an Actor freaking out over being the LOWEST PAID ACTOR from all Prime Time Television shows, aka Financial Abuse, not become a topic of discussion? Empire is an Hour Long show that has lead Fox Television in ratings for years. Charlie Sheen's show was also on Fox Television, and was only 1/2 hour. Isn't Fox the Channel that had trouble with several of their male Executives behaving badly? 

Instead of the Progressive Media considering that Jussie Smollett was Financially abused by Fox, the Progressive Media has decided to eat their own. Smollett probably got a small raise after each season, but because he started at such a low initial amount of 20,000 per episode, according to Huffington Post Smollett was only at 65,000 per episode for season number four. Smollett should have started at 30,000, not 20,000, and quickly worked his way year by year to at least 100,000 by year four. I am estimating that Smollett has been underpaid by between 1 to 2.5 million dollars overall by Empire and Fox. Charlie Sheen is also interested in another comeback.

The hurt Smollett feels, the hurt he showed when he was interviewed by Robin Roberts of Good Morning America was genuine, it radiated from the hurt he felt at being paid so little for being a co star of a number one show. Drug using, Prostitute cohabiting, Hotel Trashing, HIV Positive Sharing Charlie Sheen was paid 2 million dollars per ONE HALF HOUR EPISODE on Fox, Jussie Smollett was paid 20,000 per ONE HOUR EPISODE on Fox for a show that had superior ratings to Sheen's show. This is the epitome of White Privilege and White Entitlement. 

Let's hope that someone in Hollywood has the backbone to end the hostility towards Smollett and redirect it toward's the discriminatory pay scale that Smollett was exposed to and that affected him emotionally and mentally. It's time to open up an investigation against Fox Television's contracting practices.

Analyzing why the Los Angeles School District is headed for a January 2018 Teacher's Strike they may not be able to avoid.

There is a lot of posturing going on in regards to the LA Unified School District Strike. Both sides are claiming the other side is not negotiating in a sincere manner. And, as is usually the case when unresolvable conflicts occur, both sides are telling the truth.
Since I probably won't be invited to help mediate nor be asked for my opinion, I will post it here for you, my readers. We can have a chuckle knowing what we know and how to resolve the Strike issue, while also knowing what is shared here won't get back to the very people who might possibly be able to use the information to resolve the Strike Talks.

Issue Number one, Teachers want a 10% pay raise, the District is offering 6%. The problem is this is not the problem. The real problem is class room size. Class room sizes have apparently been increasing for quite a while and now I am reading claims of between 35 to 50 children in a class when most people seem to think that 25 to 30 is the ideal maximum. 30 students is not the ideal amount, it is the ideal amount that is considered the ceiling for creating the type of class room size a Teacher can work with.

So here's the Problem, how does the School District quantify reducing class sizes that are 35 to 50, back down to 25, and still give LA Unified a Raise? The answer is, the Teacher's Union appears to be saying that class size must be reduced, and it can have no bearing on the amount of their raise. What is throwing off the Teacher's Bargaining position is their belief that their raise is completely irrelevant to Class Size, yet they want significantly smaller class sizes.

If we could get a Math Teacher to create a Mathematical equation that would correlate the value of classroom size reduction to the size of the Teacher's pay raise, maybe progress could be made. Why not involve some Math Teachers and have them analyze the numbers?

The additional issue being argued is there is a 2 billion dollar savings account that could be going towards resolving the present salary and class size dispute. California has had a bi-polar attitude towards Donald Trump. The first year Trump was in office the Stock Market exploded, and suddenly the very Democrats who denounced Trump were crowing about a boon in their State Pension reserves, which were caused by Donald Trump led Stock Market skyrocketing. Trump's second year wasn't so good for the Stock Market, and reality has quickly set in to be extra careful when it comes to Pension Savings Accounts since the Stock Market can crash and wallow after a record number of years of expansion.

If 6% is the maximum raise allowed, I would suggest go to 7%, and then subtract 1% for every 3-4 kids a class room is reduced by. This would put the raise at around 4.5% with about 10 less kids per classroom, 25 students with a cap of 40 kids, then, to add more goodwill, drop the Maximum cap to 30 to 32. This is both sides giving in. The teachers get a 4.5% raise, classrooms that were 35 to 50 will be reduced to 25 to no more than 30 to 32 max, meaning a reduction in Maximum students in a classroom from 10 to 20 students.  AND, I would add 500 dollars to 1,000 dollars a year stipend per teacher for purchases for items that Teachers end up paying for on behalf of their students. Plus with the reduced class size there is an even better chance that teachers won't be buying anything for their kids out of their own pocket. And yes, full time Nurses, AND roving Teacher's Assistants (within the same school)  for Special Ed classes, absolutely. This would also give the school some additional supervision in the hallways as the Rovers travel to different classrooms to help out as needed.

When we add all of this up it does a pretty decent job coming close to what both sides are trying to achieve. For a 1.5% pay raise reduction, the Teachers get manageable sized classrooms, a 4.5% pay raise, and a 1,000 dollar a year supplemental supplies stipend. What do you think?

Gender Disintegration, the Going out of Business, ALL Labels Must Go, Clearance Sale.

AlexLOGIC just had an epiphany. The relatively recent gender disintegration trend that is gaining momentum has an inevitability about it. I think gender disintegration relates to Smart Phones and Streaming Options and the ongoing explosion of new media in multiplying venues, formats and media platforms. The Causation between Streaming Media and Gender Disintegration is rather amazing and can perhaps be summed up with the following thought bubble, "Don't pre-label me, I'll label myself when I am good and ready, until then back off". But its more than that, it's also, "I'll become my own Brand when I am good and ready, until then back off and let me be me".

If Gender Identification labels are removed, then the epidermal layer of Gay, Straight, Transvestite, Transexual and Bi-Sexual and a myriad of other gender Id's all become unnecessary. Everyone is a human being being human who in their own time will become their own brand.

Could the obliteration of Shame be the underlying cause and effect that is driving Gender Disintegration? Shaming has managed to throw a bigger geographical shadow with each passing generation. In the past Shame could ruin a person in any Town in any Country, but the shamed person could also leave that Town and go far enough away and start over if they desired. But as the Shaming Shadow covers more territory with each passing generation because of technological advances, there is nowhere left for the Shamed to run to and start over. 

Most would agree that Shame cannot outrun a Smart Phone and Streaming. Since there is no room left to run and hide, the answer is to face the Demon of Shame and say "Enough". If one is Gender Neutral, or Non Binary, then almost all shame becomes obliterated. 

Of course Shame will still exist; if someone physically abuses another, and especially if the person being abused is smaller of stature and strength or in a subordinate position, then shaming of the physically stronger or superior positioned person will still exist.  Shame would also exist in the Crime and Punishment realm, but almost all other forms of Shame would vanish if Gender Neutrality, or Non Binary, existed.

Whether we like it or not, the world is entering a fascinating paradigm, all because of Smart Phones, Streaming, and Shame. Shame has become such a potent tool in the streaming age that it has to be slain like a Fire Destroying Dragon.

The funny thing is, I think Gender Disintegration is ridiculously stupid, yet I think I agree with it in principle anyways.

So what might Gender Disintegration fix? It might fix salary differences between the Sexes since Sexual Identity would be mired in a Gray area. As described above, Shaming would be somewhat more difficult as Society could adopt the Pee Wee Herman Defense when he flew over his bicycle handlebars in front of a group of impressionable young teens and said, "I Meant to do that". Life is no longer about competing with the same sex and possibly always being last or near least. Every adventure would have different blending of people and inevitably people who are not good in one thing may shine in something else more often then if they are always competing within the same Sex.

As for the strength argument as being something that cannot be ignored, Society is becoming infiltrated with robotics and the ability to control powerful robotics and automations from a distance, thereby diminishing the need for more physical strength.

My reservations revolve around the idea that everyone starts the same and then turns into something different. I personally like the idea of two sexes, identified at birth, and then each blossoms into whatever they want to be.
