GenPol: Keeping the World Safe from Gender Crime

In Popinjay, Gender Police, GenPol, are the daily enforcers of society’s rules and ensure the daily security of the populace. Although they are not by definition “military”, they are often referred to as “militzia”, a corruption of the Russian word “militsiya”, and are equivalent to state police.

Building the World of Popinjay Part Three: Gender as the Currency of Power

Walk through the toy section of any store: the toys are segregated by Gender. Even the colors are different: harsh, strong colors in the boys’ toy section; soft pastels in the girls. The male dolls for girls have soft, attractive features. These dolls look somewhat androgynous and even gay. The male dolls (I mean action figures) in the boys’ section are rough, tough, have scars, large square jaws, burr haircuts or beards, and come with weapons.
