The Gender Option: Typical male, typical female, typical what?

Die Abschaffung der Geschlechter. Typisch Mann, typisch Frau, typisch Was?

The old world where men were still men and women were women, where pink was for girls and blue was for boys, seems to be faltering. This documentary investigates traditional role models and the - apparent - categories of masculinity and femininity.
From now on, the option of a third gender designation has to be made available alongside «male» and «female.» And separately from the court decision, the traditional division of roles between men and women are breaking down more and more. What role does gender play in our society? And what does it mean to position yourself between the genders?

Die "alte" Welt, in der Männer noch Männer waren und Frauen nur Frauen, die Farbe Rosa für Mädchen stand und Hellblau für Buben, scheint zu wanken. Die Dokumentation hinterfragt althergebrachte Rollenbilder und die -scheinbaren- Kategorien von Männlichkeit und Weiblichkeit.
Künftig muss es neben "weiblich" und "männlich" einen dritten Geschlechtseintrag im Behördenregister geben. Auch abseits dieses Entscheides löst sich die klassische Rollenverteilung zwischen Mann und Frau immer mehr auf. Welche Rolle spielt das Geschlecht in unserer Gesellschaft? Und was bedeutet es, zwischen den Geschlechtern zu stehen?
