meredith’s post reminded me that there is literally one criteria by which biologists classify an organism as male or female which is at all consistent
the size of the gamete cell.
no, seriously. that’s it. that’s the biotruth.
sex is a construct.
For anyone who sees this going around, DO NOT CLICK ON IT. It is a screamer that is flashing and showing Jeff the Killer. Please pass this around so others who may have epilepsy or plain don’t want to see screamers do not click on that link.
EDIT: That entire blog has posted multiple screamers and is in no way sorry for any harm they have caused to people!! please be warned!!

Gay man: "I hate how white girls accessorize gay men."
Gay man: *Accessorizes black women*
Offensive things aren’t offensive merely because they hurt feelings - they’re offensive because they contribute to the societal harm of marginalized groups. The end goal isn’t to get everyone to love each other, it’s to destroy power imbalances.
I’ve done this before, numerous times, but this time I may just make this an “official” post—
I’m not going to change my language when I’m calling out, quite frankly, normally neurotypical fucking bigots who dont have an ounce of empathy in them.
I’m not going to change MY language—someone with goddamn alphabet soup for mental disabilities—for the sake of people who have HISTORICALLY called me all sorts of (YES, ABLEIST INCLUDING!) slurs, when they don’t know or CARE about my situation.
I am a disabled, NOT FUCKING EVEN WORKING—ass individual who has NEVER insulted someone based on Actual Disability, rather, their inability to WANT to find another person human. AKA, me or anyone else I talk about when I talk ableism.
So basically, on this not-even-really-a-social justice blog, I’m CONTINUING to not change shit I say when people send me hate mail and slurs. You better, once again, use tumblr savior and get my nutsack out your raggely ass mouf.

"When I look at people I don’t see their skin color I see their personality"
First of all no you literally don’t second of all what the fuck no you don’t……. That makes no sense. Of course you see their skin color and you don’t “see” their personality at all….
I see alien vegetables. Wouldn’t it be weird if I saw dead people? I wonder if anyone could speak on a scholarly work crediting or discrediting racial color blindness. Instead of lile, you know, discrediting each other’s personal experience based on an argument of semantics.
Well here’s some scholarly work discrediting racial colorblindness
- Jane Elliot anti-racism educator talking about why colorblindness is invalid with Oprah
- "Colorblindness" in particular has been associated with higher levels of racism and lower levels of empathy. — 11. Neville, H. A., Lilly, R. L., Duran, G., Lee, R. M., & Browne, L. (2000). Construction and initial validation of the Color-Blind Racial Attitudes Scale (CoBRAS). Journal of Counseling Psychology, 47, 59–70. 12. Burkard, A. W., & Knox, S. (2004). Effect of therapist color-blindness on empathy and attributions in cross-cultural counseling. Journal of Counseling Psychology, 51, 387–397.
- GradientLair’s essays on why colorblindness is invalid and recognizing race and understanding racism is vital
- Unfortunately, not paying attention to race and gender does not make gender-race inequalities go away, precisely because these inequalities are institutionalized and not just ideas in people’s heads — Evelyn Nakano Glenn, Chapter 1: The Social Construction and Institutionalization of Gender and Race in Revisioning Gender
- In a colorblind society, White people, who are unlikely to experience disadvantages due to race, can effectively ignore racism in American life, justify the current social order, and feel more comfortable with their relatively privileged standing in society (Fryberg, 2010). Most minorities, however, who regularly encounter difficulties due to race, experience colorblind ideologies quite differently. Colorblindness creates a society that denies their negative racial experiences, rejects their cultural heritage, and invalidates their unique perspectives. — Monica Williams, Ph.D for Psychology Today, “Colorblind Ideology is a Form of Racism
*pushed out of trans spaces by dfab folks* *dfab folks monopolize trans resources meaning i can only find links to binders* *dfab folks are consistently transmisogynistic while backhandedly “supporting” dmab trans folk* um..whats your big problem with dfab trans folk?
if you ever fix your mouth/fingers to communicate that you’re talking about SEX not GENDER
you need to stop yourself because what you are about to say is DEFINITELY cissexist. like there is close to 0 chance what you wanna communicate wont read like you’re invalidating people’s gender identity
and thusly NO ONE cares or benefits from what you have to say
stop. you’re better than this, i promise you.
