AN.VII.48 Sa.myoga Sutta Both men and women are enamoured with the marks of their own gender and also those of the opposite gender, namely: 1. inner gender features; 2. manners; 3. gestures; 4. attire; 5. predjudices; 6. voice, and; 7. ornamentation. Such enamourment is a fetter which prevents them from escaping the clutches of their gender. However, those who are able to go beyond the marks of their own and the opposite gender have the chance to escape the limits of their gender. 37/136 Sattaka Nipaata, Pa.thamapa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.iv.
