First we hold that neither sex nor gender are binary. Our listing of genders tends to look at it as a sliding scale of some form, while also being willing to list various catergories of individual sliding as genders in their own right. So if any individuals gender is an expression of that spectrum, through the focal lens of 'self' might it not be that if the 'self' shattered that the expression of that spectrum might then be less than uniform? Now, I know that this does not cover all types of multiples. but if gender is a spectrum, and if that spectrum is expressed one way or another in the human brain, then surely seperate individuals that happened to have some connection or other to the same human brain could also be less than uniform.
Secondly, whether or not it is 'strange' in our experience it seems to be that more multiples have a range of genders within the collective that shares one body than do not. Now I don't know why it happens, I can't even claim we fully understand how we as a collective link to the same body and the same brain. We happen to know that we do, and that we are. And that further, 'strange' or not, that we are not all the same gender.
