Partial Gender Transplants
Contest Directions: A number of studies of the recent years has shown that when it comes to love, the old rule "opposites attract" may not be so true. Close examination of faces of thousands of couples has shown many similarities and common facial traits among spouses or lovers. People tend to subconsciously choose a partner that looks similar to him / her one way or another. So "similarities attract" may be a better rule, at least in the recent years. Furthermore, when people start living together they develop similar face characteristics together by naturally copying each other's facial emotions and expressions.
Let us show which celebrities of opposite gender share enough facial characteristics to make a natural couple: You will need to choose two celebrities of the OPPOSITE GENDER, and transplant a VERTICAL half of a face from one celebrity to another. Here's a good example. This contest is another spin-off of our popular Partial Face Transplants contest, which has been featured in many magazines including People, Daily Mail, etc. In addition to celebrities, you can also use politicians, famous word figures, or characters from old paintings as one of the sources in a merged face. Note: the two faces you use as sources do not have to be a real couple in life, but they do have to be of OPPOSITE GENDER.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Gender comes from the Latin word "genus": The behavior of a person in ociety and the gender as a social gender determines how the person is perceived in the society. This is the role behavior, which determines the relationship with other persons: Friends, colleagues in the office, classmates in study places, parents, casual passers etc. In psychology, the concept of "gender" is used in a broader sense, implied any psychological or behavioral properties, associating with masculinity and femininity and presumably distinguishing men from women (earlier they were called gender properties or differences). The word "gender" was adopted from grammar and was also introduced into the behavioral sciences by John Money whom in 1955 while studying feminine and masculine qualities and roles in the society. Later on, it was widely used by sociologists, lawyers and American feminists. In any case, it always was and would remain multi-valued. In social sciences and especially in feminism "gender" obtained a narrower sense, designating socially determined roles, the identity and scope of activity of men and women, depending not on biological distinctions but on the social organization of society. The social inequality of men and women occupies the main point of the discussion in gender studies. The word "Gender" in the English language designates the distinguishable masculinity or femininity of a person. Dividing into male and female in society is similar to division into males and females in biology. In countries where documentary evidence of identity is developed, social gender usually matches with the biological gender, indicated in the documents, i.e. with gender in a passport excluding the transgender cases. In a wider sense, social gender does not always match the biological gender of an individual, with his or her Upbringing, gender or with his/her gender indicated in a passport. Usually in a society it is possible to distinguish two genders - male and female. However, the set of genders is much wider; communities with four or more genders exist. Social levels of witches, for example, do not match with the (social) gender of usual females and according to the social role, are closer to the male (social) gender.
