When we muddy the waters defining what it means to be a man or a woman, patriarchial constructs fall apart.
Gender roles fall apart. Exclusion based on sex falls apart. It is impossible to oppress women if you cannot define woman as a state.
Is mine? If not, why not? Where do you draw the line?
It falls apart.
We make ridiculous gender rules look ridiculous. That makes people trying to enforce them angry.
At best we get erased. Hell, watch how often the 'I' gets missed off LGBTQ
Remember, we are around 1% of the population.
Think about it. If you are somewhere between male and female and you are attracted to LITERALLY ANYONE ON THE PLANET you are technically at least partially gay. :p
This renders the child infertile, damages sexual function and can lead to gender dysphoria if they pick the wrong direction.
FORCED. ON. BABIES.
The population is not 50-50 male and female folks. Never was, never will be.
Terfs want to avoid our existence because we break them
Secondly, intersex people who do not understand the overlap between transgender and intersex need to read more.
Thirdly, TERFs are just idiots.
In my opinion, a lot of the issues that can affect pcos sufferers I know benefit from the same therapy and hearing intersex narratives
She repayed me by singing me a song she improved about me. X
Now all codes are available to you regardless of listed gender. This includes intersex finally.
No, intersex does not mean you have "both bits". To explain, lets understamd homologues.
Basically male bits and female bits all start from the same bits. The clitoris and penis for example
Ovaries become testes and descend.
Rubbish. Everyone is assigned a gender at birth. Cis men are AMAB, for example. They are just happily so.
Answer: Klinefelters is where you have XXY chromosomes. It comes in mosaic form too which is less obvious. As you have a Y chromosome you have the SRY gene region so tend to appear male but with longer arms and other defining characteristics.
So in a way, all men have transitioned :p
Gender fluidity appears to be where the mechanism fluctuates but I have seen no studies on this.
Basically we suspect that our brain knows what gender it is supposed to be based on hormone exposure at a specific moment of development in utero.
There isn't a humane way to test this is humans though. We can in rats.
So gender identity is most likely hard coded based on hormone exposure.
TERFs are actually supporting patriarchial concepts, and are not feminists.
Also modern scans show different grey matter configurations along sides of brain in trans people placing them midway between sexual brain dimorphism
So TERFS try to argue they support intersex people. This is a lie. Again, it is the war to have scientific legitimacy. That belongs to intersex people and transgender people. It is little more than a dividr and conquer technique
If in doubt, research
You know if you need attention you can just ask your friends, right?
Next question. :)
Facts are facts- there are biological causes to being transgender. Being intersex doesnt qualify you to make shit up about trans people.
Gender presentation and gender roles are societal constructs. These are bullshit and mutable.
The question you had mixes gender identity into the others
My culture says girls should wear skirts and wear makeup- thats gender presentation.
Girls should be housewives is gender roles.
Those are personal stories that intersex people need to tell! Let us make films and books and games to talk about our own experiences.
Thanks all. X
I can't help diagnose you, I am a nerd who reads a lot not a doctor, so please seek proper medical advice is you suspect you are intersex. :)
My pronouns are she/her/mistress/bitch.
My adverbs are loudly/boldly/bravely.
Some types of intersex are caused by medical issues. CAH can be life threatening, for example. But we are not conditions, we are people.
If we have issues like gender dysphoria, sexual disfunction or cysts as part of the deal- we should have the choice for medical aid. But it should NOT be forced on us.
Likewise, as adults we should be free to choose how we express our gender, if we want to change our bodies and so forth.
I also think some organizations do not represent the people they claim to represent.
Also a big high five to all those who are not LGBTIQA+ who are thanking me for the lesson. Please don't stop here- lots of cool stuff to learn
Non binary refers to someone whose neurological gender identity is not at the poles of the spectrum- not male, not female but comfy somewhere in between or other than. It describes how you experience.
1) Okay let's break this down. First, what bit of you falls in love? What bit of you decided what you are attracted to?
Not your genitals. Not your body, right?
It is your brain.... so...
If your brain is hardcoded to male, and you like just men... well, you have a bad case of gay brain.
No. The term 'gay' includes your gender and that you are attracted to.
A better term here is androphile (lit. Loves Males) as it does not include your gender.
Gynophile means liking females.
I describe myself as a gay woman. It is more complex than that, but it it is easier to explain to people.
Uh. Rich? Is rich an option?
But mostly in Starwars.
Dms still open btw.
