From the first story:
There�s a ChangeDay every month. It�s a global event where everyone
on the planet has their genre reversed. On the next ChangeDay,
they�ll revert back, and so the cycle goes on, people having to
lead two different lives from now on.

-The months were people are on their birth genre are called the
alpha phase, while the others are the beta phase.
-There�s a group of people, the Rejectionists, who rejected the
transformations of Changeday and who insist on continuing in her
birth-gender, taking hormones and dressing as usual.
-While pregnant, a woman will skip ChangeDay, then cause a phase
-There�s some degree of mental change to go with the physical
transformation (different tastes, and such).
-They don�t only switch gender but their genes also shuffle, with
traits emerging from family gene pools that they hadn't previously
-Some people who had suffered physical infirmity before were now
whole again with the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, and the lame
A few additional rules as written by the author himself:
1) Though everyone has a theory about the cause of Changeday - God,
aliens, natural phenomena, etc -the cause remains unknown. It
should stay that way. If there ever is an explanation given, that
will be my story to tell.
2) The first Changeday occurred on the first Monday in June. No
exact date or year should be given.
3) Changeday is an event that recurs on a Monday every four weeks
around the world *simultaneously*. In the UK it happens at 7pm when
we're on Summer Time, 6pm on Winter Time. When setting a story
elsewhere please check a time-zone map to determine the equivalent
time in that location.
4) Please name your story thus - 'Changeday: (insert your title
