Matrix: Omnigendered

From Rolling Stone, here's the wild story of Larry Wachowski, one half of the Wachowski brothers duo who brought us the Matrix trilogy. Seems old Larry has intriguing sexual proclivities and may or may not have undergone a sex change operation -- perhaps to bring him closer to his former-dominatrix girlfriend Ilsa Strix.

Intriguing read. The publicity surrounding such a high-profile transvestite (transsexual?) can only help shine a flashlight on these extremes of consensual sexual behavior -- and perhaps help diminish some of the prejudice faced by those with non-mainstream-hetero tastes in our society.

Plus, it sounds like a pretty good idea for a zany romantic comedy. Do you think maybe it's a little bit ahead of its time?

This sheds some light on the deep body-transcendence subtext of the Matrix series.
