Gender in Torn World

Alternate gender and sexuality issues.

Gender and sexuality are complicated issues, and Torn World is no exception to that! The Empire must balance such issues as the Glifai, who are born without gender as often as not, and many disparate views of gender roles from their various assimilated cultures. They've recently come through a gender revolution that strives for equality and tries to simplify and streamline the licensing for gender. Of course, it doesn't always work out perfectly...

Follow the adventures of Lalya in becoming legally licensed as a woman in the Lalya and Dini storyline.

Even the north isn't completely free of gender stigma and issues! In a culture that is slipping in population, sometimes women who prefer women and men who prefer men are asked to make sacrifices to bolster the population.
