The differentiation of sex, age, and occupation are not essential to our character, but mere costumes which we wear for a time on the stage of the world.
The image of man within is not to be confounded with the garments (…) Designations do not tell what it is to be man, they denote the accidents of geography, birth-date, and income. What is the core of us? What is the basic character of our being?
