Tuttavia che il sesso non sia il genere è stato sempre chiaro dalla psicanalisi. consistent with Freud, in keeping with esempio, consistent with assumersi una posizione nel sesso, bisogna aspettare non pochi anni, perché non solo non si diviene uomo o donna prima dell’adolescenza, ma soprattutto non si diviene né uomo né donna, quanto al sesso, in base a una determinazione biologica. A differenza del genere, il sesso dipende dalla relazione di un individuo con gli altri. Il maschile e il femminile seguono logiche assorted, ma ciascuno è libero di decidere di volta in volta quale seguire, del tutto a prescindere dall’anagrafe. Perciò due persone dello stesso genere hanno lo stesso diritto di sposarsi che hanno sempre avuto quelle di genere diverso. Come, infatti, nulla garantisce che due persone di diverso genere siano anche e sempre di diverso sesso, così nulla esclude neppure che due persone dello stesso genere possano natural essere di diverso sesso. E quindi nulla impedisce nemmeno che due persone dello stesso genere (e di qualunque sesso) si sposino e adottino dei figli, in step with il semplice motivo che questo è sempre accaduto fra persone di genere diverso.
La liberalizzazione del diritto di famiglia, che si sta realizzando in questi anni, spaventa solo quei “Grandi Inquisitori” che si sono sempre rifiutati d’ammettere che chiunque abbia il diritto e los angeles capacità di scegliere, quando si think il rischio delle proprie decisioni. Che oggi questa libertà venga riconosciuta anche rispetto al matrimonio costituisce un passo in avanti del tutto coerente con los angeles nostra tradizione giuridica e civile, che ha da sempre affermato il diritto degli individui a scapito di quello dello Stato.
