Gethenians – The Left Hand of Darkness

The whole basis for The Left Hand of Darkness is that a human is trying to get the Gethenians to join their big intergalactic union. The Gethenians are human-like, with the big exception being that they change genders back and forth based on their needs. This means their society has no gender roles, which makes for a significant change from the majority of Earth-based societies.
