This article will retrace the developmental lines of societal discourses concerning sexuality as well as the changing significance, acceptance, de-dramatization, and normalization of non-heteronormative, non-binary configurations of gender. In a first step, the figure of the continuum will be outlined as a theoretical framework and analytic tool for gender diversity. Subsequently, the article will illustrate certain key data points concerning the situation of women and men in Luxembourg and establish a comparison with the European and international situation. Selected research findings will be discussed, although it must be noted that, in the early 2010s, this research was still concerned exclusively with binary configurations of gender. Following a first synopsis, the paper will divert its attention to trans, intersex, non-binary, queer, and agender persons in Luxembourg and will introduce current national and international research findings concerning Luxembourg, as well as national ministerial measures and positionings. Following an excursion towards sexology in medicine as well as teaching and research environments at universities, the article will cast a glance towards the year 2050 and finally illuminate the relation, the four-way connection between physicality, psyche, social behavior, and desire to thus illustrate perspectives towards possible future developments.

This article shows how the figure of the Continuum can describe pluralities not only in the realm of sex/gender, but also in that of migration, space, border, culture, and time using the four dimensions of the Continuum: physical/body/matter – psychological/feeling/experience –social/behaviour/doing – sexual/sexual orientation/desire. In the first part of the article the figure of the Continuum will be described in its origination and summarised in its application to the concepts of gender and migration. The second part of the article will shine a first light on the application of the figure of the Continuum to the concepts of space, border, culture, and time. The article considers the question of the dissolution of binarities by the figure of the Continuum, as well as the question of the meanings and consequences of categorial systems of order. The musings of the article result in the notion that a more wide-spread application of the figure of the Continuum could inspire a new, broader humanism, and thus be understood as a basis for further reflections working towards an overstepping of post- and transhumanistic approaches.

This article shows, on the one hand, how the figure of the Continuum can describe pluralities not only in the realm of sex/gender, but also in that of migration, using the four dimensions of the Continuum: physical/body/matter―psychological/feeling/experience―social/behavior―sexual/desire. The figure of the Continuum can resolve binaryandbipolar orders by overcoming the virulent power of the poles “male-female”which are still considered to frame thegender orderto this days. In the same way, the bipolar, antagonistic,and dichotomous juxtaposition between migrant andnon-migrantwill be released from a binary constriction using the figure of the Continuum, as well as the diametric opposition within different forms, different trajectories of,and different reasons for migration. On the other hand, the article shows how natural such de-binarizationsareor how pluralizations areif one looks to quantum logic and explains how the “as well as”, the end of the exclusionary opposition of “0:1”, superpositions and overlays as well as repetitions are of central significance for quantum physics. Thus, the article can come to the conclusion that, just as in the quantum logic of physics, the figure of the Continuum contains a chance for a newandbroader humanism,which considers the human as a human, with all their diversities, potentialities,and the inviolability of human dignity.

This article shows how, using the figure of the continuum, gender pluralities can be captured in their actually existing diversity and thus be detached from a still powerful and often stereotyping binary constructedness. Gender as a continuum encompasses the four dimensions physical, psychological, social and sexual or: body, feeling, behavior, and desire. It will be demonstrated that all of these dimensions are not clearly separable within themselves and from each other. In the second part of the article, concrete everyday examples and legal debates are discussed from the perspective of the continuum. Thus, we are free to consider differences and similarities between and within the different gender groups in all their diverse shapes and manifestations. The question of what we are speaking about when we are speaking about gender will be answered with a clear “We are speaking about us as individuals and us as a society”. The simple reversion of this correlation will lead to the question: “Do we have to speak about gender when we are speaking about ourselves?”. This question will be answered with a clear “No”, if the normality of plurality and diversity also includes the negation, the absence of gender. [less ▲]

In Luxembourg, the amended law of 29 August 2008 on free movement of persons and immigration does not provide a definition for immigrant investors or immigrant business owners. A third-country national investor can either receive a residence permit as a self-employed worker or a residence permit for private reasons. Which one of both residence permits the applicant receives is dependent of whether s/he wants to actively work in the company s/he invests in or whether s/he wants to be a passive investor. As the global economic growth is not located anymore in Europe and in the USA but in emerging economies (i.e. BRIC countries), the government is targeting investors and capital also from these countries. An interministerial working group was set up, which prepares two drafts bills to create a legal framework for attracting third-country national investors and business managers in Luxembourg. This working group is composed of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy (General Directorate of Small and Medium-Sized enterpises) and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (Directorate of Immigration).

The social security system in Luxembourg is in principle a contributory-based system different to other countries, which have a residence-based system. The social protection system is composed of three major branches: a) Social security: This branch comprehends healthcare, sick cash benefits, maternity and paternity leave benefits, accidents at work and occupational diseases, long-term care, invalidity benefits, old-age pensions, survivors’ pensions and family allowances. The social security benefits are financed by contributions paid either by the employer, the employee or the State. We include in this branch unemployment because the employee contributes to the system. The only requirements that the beneficiary has to fulfill are the objective criteria for granting each one of the benefits. b) Social assistance system: This branch comprehends the guaranteed minimum income (RMG), which is financed by general taxation and is paid from the general budget of the State. The persons have to prove that they do not have sufficient means to live when their income does not reach a certain threshold. c) Social aid: This is considered the safety net of the system. This aid allows people in need and their families to have a life in dignity. As the social assistance system it is financed by general taxation and in principle any person residing in Luxembourg can benefit from it if s/he fulfills the criteria. This benefit is granted and distributed by the social assistance offices of the municipalities. [less ▲]
