I get it, you believe that sex and gender are the same thing. You believe that if you have a penis you’re a man. If you have a vagina you’re a woman. Nothing else. Just your genitals decide if you’re a man or a woman.
So, for a second I’m going to humor you. I’m going to pretend that there are just two positions and those positions are determined by your genes and what genitals you have.
I will even go so far as to pretending that all births are xx or xy (which ignores the fact that 1-4 births aren’t).
Here’s the thing, if the only thing that determines gender is sex that means anything not relating to your penis or vagina has nothing to do with gender.
That means that styles/looks(so clothes, makeup, body modifications, colors, hair cuts/body hair, etc), body types, jobs, hobbies, essentially EVERYTHING (except maybe urinals and pads/tampons) has nothing to do with gender.
That means when you see a 5′11″ person with a strong build, a beard, wearing a football uniform walks into the woman’s bathroom because she has a vagina you need to not even question it, because none of that has to do with gender(which, according to you, is only based off of whether or not something has a penis or vagina).
It means that men can wear dresses, skirts, pink and purple, have gorgeous long curly hair, shave their legs, paint their nails and do basically anything that gender roles, rules, and expectations say they shouldn’t.
Because here’s the thing you can’t claim sex is the only factor in determining someones gender- you cant claim sex and gender are the same thing- until you’re willing to accept that gender isn’t decided by anything BUT sex.
I’m sorry you can’t have both. So pick one.
Is gender and sex the same thing? okay then the only thing that belongs to a gender is the genitals.
Are they different things? Are their roles, rules, and expectations of a gender? Well than it’s time you start accepting the fact that people have the right to identify as the gender that fits them.
Happy pride month to all LGBT+ members!
get you a guy that knows what equality is
I want this shirt.
Girls dont get less freedom just for having a vagina.
Boys dont get to have their emotions ignored just for having a penis.
The only reason rules should change kid by kid is due to maturity levels.
I hate genderization of any kind.
With the small exception of pronouns(simply because they’re a part of speech) I truly dont care for gender conformity, in fact I’m 100% against it.
Put bows in your baby boys hair, dress your girls in rocketships and blue baseball shirts/onsies.
Let boys play with makeup and flowers and girls with mud and trucks.
Let them do the opposite(or the “norm” )without being considered “traditional”.
Call boys gorgeous and girls handsome.
I dont care what bathroom you use. I dont care what colors you like. I dont care if you wear skirts or pants.
Beyond innocent curiosity (and sexual relationships) I truly dont care if you have a penis or not- frankly it has nothing to do with your interests.
If you really think that what someone has in their pants gets to have a say in their hobbies/styles/interest then I truly think you need to reevaluate the way you think.
P.S. Dont assume someone is trans or gay just because they dont follow gender stereotypes.
