The Myths About Androgyny With Nikki Eason and Vjay.
Androgyny is a gender identity that is distinct from the sex of the body. It is not biological nor is it synonymous with sexual behavior, nor necessarily indicative of sexual preference” (Woodhill & Samuels, 2004). It attempts to defy the traditional gender roles that men and women are assigned since birth. Sex is the inherent biological difference between men and women’s reproductive organs whereas gender is learned as social, psychological, and cultural traits associated with one sex or the other (Bond, 2011). Androgyny attempts to blur the lines between traditional gender roles and to combine masculine and feminine traits in order for a person to reach an ideal state.But this basic definition must necessarily be qualified by recognizing the diverse forms of androgyny. who embodies male and female qualities but must “split” to become creative; a “fusing androgyne,” who must merge with a male or female side of the personality to become bisexual; and a “two in one” androgyne, often represented by a couple that unites in a perfect love.
Tonight, on Teko's Corner, guests Nikki Eason and Vjay will join us to share their journey and to dispel some of the myths about androgyny.
Mandy Goodhandy and Todd Klinck will talk with Veronica Blake. Past Empress of the Imperial Court of Toronto, philanthropist, husband of over 20 years, showgirl, executive secretary, seamstress, athlete and coach all wrapped up in one. Veronica feels she should probably have been born inside a woman's body, but was not. She grew up inside a boy called Kelvin. Naturally, there had been some turmoil in earlier life, but since her 18th birthday she's figured out how to manage the intricacies of existing happily without 'lady parts'. Sure… not all who meet her 'get' that she identifies as Androgynous. Technically, Veronica 'passes' as a gay man, Kelvin – that's how anyone observing might classify… but really, she's just an Androgynous Being.
There is a Chinese proverb which reads, "When sleeping women wake, mountains move."
Author, strategic futurist, and existential detective, Christopher Weber-Fürst is at the leading edge of this movement. His upcoming book "The Future is Female - Leading From the Future as it Emerges", addresses the emerging paradigm shift in leadership towards a more female and androgyny style.
Join us as Christopher reveals the proofs of this emerging shift. What will it look like? And, how will it impact individuals, relationships, teams, organizations and society? We'll discuss what it will take to transform society from a patriarchal and male dominated one to a society where the female values are more dominant.
Norwegian native, and Munich resident, Christopher is a CTI Executive Coach with a long experience working internationally. He performs leadership training and consulting to women leaders and their organizations seeking to effect breakthrough changes for themselves, the business and society.

Nigger/Bitch: An exploration of the terms, the cultural connotations of these terms, their connection to White Supremacy and finally a plan to combat their popular use.
Misogyny, Exploitation of Women: An investigation into the patriarchal and white male dominated music industry and their historical view of women in general and Black Women in particular, the current images of Black Women in Entertainment (Film/TV/Music/Videos, etc), the Historical context of the exploitation of Black Women Rape, Breeding, Slavery, Hottentot Venus, the Historical images of the Black Woman as mammy, jemima, vixen, jezebel. The hyper sexualization of the Black Woman.
Dehumanization and Demasculinization of the Black Male: The Dehumanizing image of the Black Man as a Thug or Gangsta, unfeeling and unemotional, cold blooded killer, absentee father, baby daddy and sexually unbridled are all parallels to the Historically negative images of the Black Man as savage, boogey man, coon, black buck run amuck, and Mandingo. If the Black Man is not dismissed as invalid by his projected uncontrollability and violent nature then he is made unthreatening by a softening process which parallels Black Male Castration. This Demasculinization of the Black Male is why most conscious or intelligent rappers are often ‘softer’ or become so after time. This is part of Acceptability and Mainstream Appeal Ex: The Bohemian projection of Common Sense, the friendly boy next door and non threatening projection of Mos Def, the clothes and hair and metamorphosis of Andre 3000. We can see this more clearly displayed in R&B where there is a certain level of Androgyny and Racial Ambiguity where artists become neither Black nor White nor Man nor Woman Ex: Michael Jackson, El DeBarge, Prince, Cisco.
We are currently living in a time where people possess the characteristics of both the male and female specimen. Are we losing our natural characteristics..... Let’s discuss the possible reasons for the confusion. Now, this discussion may come as a shocker because we’re addressing something that has become a common observation. Quite frankly, Men shouldn’t have feminine characteristics and Women shouldn’t have masculine characteristics, we should have individual characteristics. Being in an androgynous era could be the reason why women have used the masculinity to minimize the presence and purpose of him while he has used his femininity to hide behind her—a reversal of roles. Join us for an in-depth discussion this Wed on “Let it be Known” Live RADIO!
