Ideologues have an imbalance of compassion: 100% for the in-group and 0% for the out-group.

It's natural to show more compassion to those who are close to us, but it has to be balanced.

Both 100% and 0% compassion (with no truth to balance) are devouring forces. Our narcissistic culture is obsessed with showing ultimate compassion to those who agree with us, and zero compassion to those who dare disagree.

This type of culture creates ideologues.

Not being a *typical* male or female does NOT mean you’re not a male or female. This is a core belief about bio sex in the gender ideology: everyone must fall within the average to be considered male or female, that male and female are average clusters of traits which we as society decide to label as M or F.

In simplest terms, when you think “phenotype”, just think “body.”

The definition uses phenotype because it has to apply to all anisogamous species. If it gave specific characteristics, like testes and ovaries or penis and vagina, it wouldn’t be broad enough. It wouldn’t be broad enough because those characteristics can differ across anisogamous species (ex. Male seahorses give birth.)

What unites these males and females across species is the fact that one produces the small gametes and the other produces the large gametes.

BREAKING: A new peer-reviewed study has been published in The Journal of Queer Mechanics, where spectrum researchers in the queerology of sex found two new gamete types.

"Sex is not binary, but a tetraspectrum," the authors write. Image "This evidence shows that sex is more complicated than 3rd grade biology," writes Zane Xee, a disabled, Latinx, asexual, transqueer with frilly blue hair and light skin who uses Zee/Zim pronouns.

If we completely detach the definition of "sexes" from their distinct roles in reproduction, and reduce them to singular components of anatomy and physiology, there is nothing stopping us from binning each person into their own bin.

You may as well say there are infinite sexes. ImageImageImageImage
