The polarity of the sexes is rooted in the genic sex. The qualities which constitute masculinity and femininity are psychobiological secondary (sex) characteristics. They are epigenetic phenomena evolved from the interaction of man's biological givens with the civilization. The polarity of the sexes changes in our civilization faster than before. The potential for psychological change is in the process of identification primarily of the infants of both sexes with the mother. Socioeconomic and cultural changes bear influence on the structure of the family and promote the equalization of the sexes.
