Once we get rid of gender oppression (and its effect gender), we'll be able to arrive at a more useful, humane, & interesting theory of human biology with an X-sex model. Liberate sexing & biology (and inquiries into them, ethical, scientific, or aesthetic) from gender, so to speak. I'd venture to say we'll be able to study evolution without being hindered by evolutionary psychologists' nonsense, at least. Work of left-wing biologists like Stephen Jay Gould & Richard Lewontin suggests what may become points of departure for all free thinkers in an emancipated future (as of now, sadly their ideas are confined to the margins).
