Due to a few supporting comments and much thought I've decided to put this short story back up.
 
Now PLEASE REALIZE that this IS FICTION, and speaks of various theories etc. So please do NOT go ape shit on me for "scientific inaccuracy" as one foolish reader did! You will save your own embarrassment

 


 

How it happened, no one knew for sure. To the western hemisphere it happened over night. To the eastern hemisphere, it happened during the afternoon.

It was postulated that some sort of galactic dust storm passed through the earth's orbit. Others theorized that it was some sort of odd solar flare radiation. Even others suggested that it was the result of a virus, uncovered from the melting of the arctic and antarctic ice fields due to global warming.

Whatever it was caused by, after the initial panic of the previously male population, the world became a much different place.

All over the world men were changed into women. Only a very few were spared and in the beginning no one understood why they were spared. Oddly enough there were also a few women that had changed into men.

Eventually scientists would discover, after extended psychiatric and psychological testing upon the men left over as well as the newly converted men, that there was a level of understanding of people and a level of tolerance that only they possessed.

The newly converted men had all been mothers, having given birth about 10 years previous to the conversion. As time wore on humanity, such as it was, would also discover that all of humanity would be born female, grow up as female and could only become male after a certain understanding of human nature and achieve a level of social tolerance and social achievements. They would also be mothers for at least 10 years and only then the alteration to masculinity would be triggered by an internal drive; a personal desire to become a man.

Mankind's morality had been rewritten overnight. Misogyny and gynophobia were things of the past. The very notion of gender dominance was gone, never to return.

The future still had men in it but they were far wiser and far more understanding than they had been in the previous 200 millenia of homo sapien's history on earth.
