Biological sex defines our reproductive roles.

Gender is a social construct used to oppress us.

And rather than teaching children this, so they can better understand how they are being manipulated, we encourage them to believe they have been born with an inherent gender?
It is always worth considering who wins with this set-up.

It is definitely not the children who will grow up and realise that their childhood traumas were displaced into gender dysphoria, rather than being dealt with as adverse childhood events to be worked through.
For some families with traumas and belief systems they do not want to acknowledge, like sexual abuse, homophobia, misogny, violence etc displacing these onto their children becomes a useful way of distracting professionals.
After all we can no longer question question what factors/ACEs may underpin the gender dysphoria. We just have to affirm gender as if it is as real as biological sex. Despite there being such flimsy evidence.
Professional curiosity is out the window unless you enjoy being reported for transphobia.

So yes it is the powerful who benefit most from encouraging us to believe in gender.

And as always, when those with power win, all the rest of us numpties lose.
