sex/gender is simple

Post by Advocate »

Sex is biology. Only biologists get to decide what it means.
Gender is social. Everyone gets to decide what it means.
Sexual identity is psychological. You get to decide what it means for you.

a trans-man recently reported that, after bein' exposed to tear gas during a peaceful protest he had a period

why?

cuz he is actually a mentally disordered she

sexual identity is rooted in the flesh: joe may think he's a gal, may dress like a gal, may surgically mutilate himself to affect the appearance of a gal but he's still a guy

Bruce Jenner is a mentally ill man, not a healthy woman

It's an identity. You can choose it in relation to biological sex, in opposition to biological sex, or be asexual. It's a valid identity each way.

Bloody rubbish. Gender and sex mean the same thing. Why do you think people talk about the gender of their newborn?
Wankers have turned 'gender' into a political term.

If you mean persona, then: sure.

Joe can pretend to be Josephine. He may actually, sadly, believe he is Josephine.

if you mean distinctiveness, then: nope.

Joe (a man) can never actually be Josephine (a woman).

it was close

if laura had made landfall 50 miles east of where she did, we woulda been in deep shit

as it was, folks on both sides of the texas-louisiana border got kicked hard

here, lots of debris but little in the way of loss (life or property)
