How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
If y’all did some research outside of #MOGAI Tumblr, you would know that the #nonbinary genders other cultures had/have, which y’all envy them so much for, are/were actually terrible and oppressive in many cases. I have an excellent post I’ll link to below if I can find (*)
At least over here, woman = adult human female. But now, thanks to trans activism, that is warping. And it’s for the worst. In some circles, this definition has already been replaced by “an individual who has a vague, intangible feeling of womanhood”.
This neodefinition silences us from defining ourselves or speaking of our common experiences pertaining to the BIOLOGICAL REALITY of femaleness. Already, this is having detrimental and (un)predictable effects. I read an article (**) where it was ruled that a company...
...discriminating against a breastfeeding female employee wasn’t “sex discrimination” because “men can lactate under some circumstances”. See how terrible this is? Thank god USA hasn’t replaced sex with gender (yet!). Praying for my sisters in the UK, tho🙏🏾
And the issue of trans athletes, that’s a whole nother trip right there. I’ve heard news after news of TIMs taking medals 🏅 from the female athletes. A male individual retains their physical advantage, regardless of how they “identify”. Hormones and surgery won’t take that away.
So now, what will become of women’s sports? Will we be pushed out of our own leagues, or am I just being “hysterical”? (***)
Then there is the “dOn’t MEnZiOn BiOLoGy iT’s CiSSeXiST” shit I see TRAs and their allies peddling. Fuck, I’ve already seen this rhetoric around the #RepealThe8th convention in Ireland. TIMs are more concerned with feeling “included” in shit that ain’t their fight than...
...they are with giving women rights. @Terfy_Memes remember that fuckshit you showed me? 🙄 (****) A trans lady feeling some type of way over not being able to “relate” to females being raped and forced to bear children repeatedly? #TheHandmaidsTale
And that big crying over #PussyHats at the #WomensMarch (which is trash for other reasons btw) being “racist” and “exclusionary”? Lmfao, I’m still tryna find out how tf they are racist. The color pink was not to symbolize an actual vagina. And I could just knit a brown one lol.
And those dumb hats don’t even resemble actual vaginas not one bit. They are cat ears. They were a response to @realDonaldTrump’s “#GrabEmByThePussy” disgusting ass remarks. Tmw you’re salty bc the group of ppl a predator wants to assault doesn’t include you🤷🏾‍♀️
The notion that 99% of the people at this march need to shut up about their problems so that <1% can feel “included” is ridiculous and egoistical in a way only males can be. Yes, being left out hurts. But you know what else does?...
..Period pains, contractions, #abortions, #pregnancy, forced birth, #FGM, swollen breasts, #endometriosis, mammograms, sexual objectification, and phallocentrism, to name a few 🤷🏾‍♀️. If a #FEMINIST event isn’t the place to center female bodies, then do tell me WHERE we can.
So as you can see, #femaleempowerment or #femaleerasure ? Pregnant women become pregnant people, so #abortion and #birthcontrol are #humanrights issues rather than exclusively #WOMENSRIGHTS struggles. Then we cannot complain about governments dominated by men deciding.
If we can’t center female bodies in feminism because “not all women have vaginas and not all vaginas belong to women”, then by that logic, #BlackLivesMatter needs to stop making #policebrutality a black issue.
... Even though the odds of a nonblack person getting fucked over by the police are way higher than the odds of a man getting pregnant 🤷🏾‍♀️. After all, Native Americans have even higher rates than us!
Then, androcentrism in medicine, #STEMM and #healthcare. This is an issue that needs to be brought to attention! Male bodies are used in experiments and trials, which means the needs of women aren’t addressed. Female bodies aren’t the same. Medicine can react way differently. (&)
It’s a concern that this pressure to be neutral on sex will result in even LESS research invested in females. Oh no, don’t wanna be #cissexist! And in jobs... if a company wants to give itself cookies for “#diversity” rep, they can just hire transwomen instead of women...
... You get the female “identity”, and they don’t have to take maternity leave or breastfeed like those pesky females! If gender identity replaces sex, it wouldn’t take long for the dudebros in Silicon Valley to figure this out.
So, in conclusion, gender identity ideology erases females from our own movement, denies sex-based oppression, reopens the door for discrimination against women, and changes “women” from a clear disadvantaged class of individuals to a malleable club to opt in and out of.
