So wait, they're admitting autistic people can be unduly influenced to be a gender they don't actually identify with? Such as transgender?

Ok... So this defines this made up thing, then actually lists that it was made up on Tumblr, giving it a timeline!

I'm all for playing with language, but the comments are so serious about it all.

I think the seriousness might be part of the humor. Honestly, it's Poe's law of the internet: it's too hard to tell sarcasm many times. Between that and purity spirals it's too tough for me to tell.

True! I got the impression that it was teens for some reason. But yeah, with the internet nuts at can't tell at all.

I came across it in a facebook group and the comments are all woo-woo (taking it very seriously). Also apparently people with PCOS are now intersex because high testosterone = intersex? I'm confused.

Why are people so desperate to precisely label every tiny aspect of their personality as a "gender"? It sounds exhausting.
