Pro-feminist male looking for insight into gender, sex, and sexuality with as few pretenses and assumptions as possible, I hope. If you're willing, help me understand.
Disclaimer: I'm a male in a long-term monogamous relationship with a woman. We have two young children, who are also male. I'm always open to parenting ideas that'll make them into better people.
Just a bad attempt at a joke, not even a reference to something in particular. :-)
I’m taking it back to the old school, cuz I’m an old fool who can’t be bothered to learn the new way
The difference between abuse & neglect and genuine love for a child that may be trans.
REMEMBER IF YOU DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES YOU ARE TRANS EVERYONE
I feel that assuming a non-conforming kid is automatically transexual actually reinforces the idea of a solid, inherent gender binarity instead of breaking it. If you’re a boy and you like “girl stuff” like skirts and dolls and hair accessories, does it mean you’re actually a girl? Or does it just mean that associations between gender and types of clothing and gendered play are taught instead of inherent? A non-conforming kid might end up being trans, or not. They might end-up being gay, which was my case. Or they might end up just being non-conforming.
Non-conformity doesn’t mean you need a new gender. It means the whole idea of gender is broken as fuck.
Yesterday, Nev Schulman, from Catfish, made this stupid tweet about the incident where Ray Rice knocked his wife unconscious in an elevator. Claiming that he is a “real man” even though he was kicked out of college for punching a woman in the face. Disgusting.
WHAT THE FRICKITY FRACK
And this is why I do NOT trust any man who frames issues of rape, sexual harassment or domestic violence as things done by “cowards” and as things “real men” would never do.
Because it is just another way of saying #notallmen
And he attacked a lesbian, no less, after she objected to him taking photos of her and her girlfriend.
Let’s not leave that part out. This is the sort of shit we have to live with every day.
Keep quiet and get added to some dude’s spank bank, or stand up and maybe need facial reconstruction.
I don’t know who this is guy is but wow, what a colossal knob
So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend
I have achieved level 6 adulthood (spouse, kids, house, car, professional job) but this is still 1000% true
Maybe it changes when you’re rich and have a cook?
It’s way too soon for hurting lips and hands that look dried mud
when “”“”educated”“”” people type a whole lot of words that mean basically nothing and u feel stupid for not understanding them at first and then u reread it and realise NO they are literally saying nothing they are just typing meaningless sentences to revel in their own smugness.
