The term "Gender", which was not very common in a while ago, has been gradually becoming familiar to people today. On the other hand, "Gender" has also received a negative image by mass media. In particular, since the enforcement of Basic Law for a Gender-Equal Society, the criticism has been made on the notion of a "Gender Free" ideology.
