“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)

Just develop your personality and your interests.

Try to be a good person.

Try to leave people better than you found them, or at least not worse

If you can find something interesting about other people, you will become interesting yourself. There is always something to be learned from another person

‘Gender’. It’s a shortcut around this conventional wisdom
