While female delegates have begun to describe the Platform proposals for mainstreaming gender as "potentially revolutionary," some male delegates have been offering their own perspectives. One spoke of the advancement of women as a necessary but not sufficient condition for the economic development of his country. Another was committed to mainstreaming because "it is essential that men and women share responsibility." One man from the developed world said mainstreaming was now taken for granted in his society. He questioned the "radical" focus on issues that would not serve the interests of the vast majority of "normal women", namely sexual orientation, reproductive health, and sexual rights. He attributed the "radical focus" to advocates of the "wilder shores of the gender bender agenda."
