“I’m questioning MY gender”

“MY gender identity”

“My body doesn’t match MY gender”

I’m sick of this bizarre individualism. TRA’s act like everybody has a different, special gender...gender is merely what is expected of a human based on their sex.

Gender is NOT a personal thing. NOBODY has a gender.

Gender is societal expectations/norms/shackles foisted on each of us depending on our sex. Gender is the clothes/hobbies/traits attributed to a male or a female because they are male or female. Females get the worst of “gender” as the expectations for the female sex are more restrictive.

Breaking gender norms/not conforming to gendered expectations does not magically grant you a special “identity” it just means you are a man who prefers “feminine” (clothes/hobbies/traits stereotyped as being for women) to “masculine” (clothes/hobbies/traits stereotyped as being for men) or the reverse, if you are a “masculine” woman.

Gender is nothing but shallow empty rubbish. None of this gender shite makes a drop of sense...pronouns for example are a description of sex, not of some flimsy self perception based on stereotypes. It’s so fucking stupid.

Nobody has a gender. We ALL have a biological sex and a personality (or, when talking about certain “folx”, a distinct lack of personality)

Yes. I have never experienced this elusive gender identity. It wouldn’t bother me if someone used pronouns other than she/her because it wouldn’t change my material reality (though I would find that person odd).

It truly is a new religious movement, and an ideology for the privileged at that. Women and girls in many developing countries (and even within communities in so-called 1st world) cannot identify out of honor killings, FGM, child marriage. It’s insulting, because claiming trans and non-binary identities are prevalent across history and culture implies that every female person suffering from misogyny is at fault because she identifies as female.

what's worse is they can (try to)argue that a woman who suffers FGM and wants to identify out of it is suffering transphobia thus making FGM a trans issue and not a female issue. anything to divide females on female issues and have them focus on the almighty peen
