It should be noted, that it's not the gay community demanding a 'genderless' society. The call is for genderless EQUALITY. Traditional marriage as anyone is trying to define it, gender only mattered when women were subjects to their husbands. Not that BOTH PARTNERS have equal standing in the law, and as individuals, gender isn't an ENFORCEABLE standard between the couple. This also gives the opportunity to the intersexed and the transgendered to marry. Ambiguous gender is a fact of life and the PHYSICAL gender of a spouse, only matters to those in the relationship, and shouldn't to anyone who isn't. That's just pragmatism addressing reality.
