This post/my intense ire was catalyzed by a form reply from one of my state representatives...not only was it a form reply, it addressed the WRONG BILL.

Fuck everyone who is supposed to be in charge but is little more than a trained circus dog doing tricks! Fuck all the "adults" promoting or allowing for bullshit! You irresponsible little trolls!

Fuck the Association for Women in Mathematics Fuck Frans De Waal Fuck the ACLU Fuck Planned Parenthood Fuck Netflix and Amazon and Google and Twitter and Reddit Fuck Alice Dreager and Gloria Steinham and Margerat Atwood Fuck all the little nobodies in all the HR departments pushing pronouns in the email signatures so they can feel important. Fuck Joe Biden Fuck Scientific American Fuck the IOC and NCAA Fuck every news out that shows a picture of Richard Levine or Amy Schneider, looks you straight in the eye, and lies with "female".

Everyone's either a fucking idiot or a fucking coward.

Seriously, fuck all the "adults". Teenagers spouting gender woo are annoying, but any rational adult with power over education, criminal justice, or healthcare policy who tolerates, let alone promotes, gender ideology is complicit in hurting women, children, and homosexual people.

My trans students are insufferable at times, but the reason I can't give them a much needed, yet kind, reality check is all the infantilizing adults around me.

I have come to realize that WE are the adults in the room.

But we're adults that no one listens to, adults with no authority

I dont want to be adult! I wanna videogame and nap but here I am fighting my foremothers battles!

Its so sad. The feminist foremothers fought and died to get us equal rights. And we're on the verge of losing basic stuff like the right of female only toilets and prison cells. And the worst part is seeing so many "feminist" organizations and female handmaidens happily sell us all out!

Same here. I want others to be the adults, but sadly, the world is stuck with us.

I upvoted at "WRONG BILL"; fuck's sake.

I opened and closed my response with "This makes your office look foolish..." UGH. Everyone is so fucking stupid!

I bet that felt GOOD!!!

If I was standing next to you my shirt would say "I'm with her ---->"

Thanks! It did :) And then I found some legislation to combat and write about :)

Frans De Waal? Oh no. What has he said? He’s probably using it to boost sales for his books on “empathy” (sounds like he’s conveniently empathising only with males),

I read a first review of his forthcoming book on gender. I really, really expected him to get it, because he is a primatologist...and we are primates...so we have sex, but gender identity is a human social invention. But nope. According to the review, he argues that transgender identity is innate and not a social construction. It says that explicitly. I was pissed off for a whole day just learning that about his book. Fuckin' moron.

I just looked up the reviews — the ones I saw only mentioned that gender (or gender roles) is culturally flexible amongst the great apes, which is what we would expect — it’s a cultural manifestation of patriarchy (chimps) or different roles in situations of co-dominance/matriarchy (bonobos). How on Earth would that be an argument for a “natural” transgender identity — if anything it’s an argument against it, so I cannot understand why he would draw such conclusions unless for “woke” points that will age very quickly. Was really disappointed to see Hrdy and Sapolsky blurbing this book, though Hrdy’s review appears measured. Other than the primatological angle of gender roles — which at least amongst the great apes we would expect, since they have cumulative culture — it doesn’t seem as if de Waal is fundamentally saying anything than for example Kathleen Stock except he’s mislabelling culture as hard-wired. As an behavioural ecologist (which emphasises variations in behaviour depending on environment), he should know better. Unless he’s gone down some unscientific Joan Roughgarden “Evolution’s Rainbow” (a transwoman who doesn’t believe in sexual selection) route in his dotage.

I really hope the reviewer just got the wrong end of the stick.

Here is the review: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/frans-de-waal/different-gender-primatologist/ Here is the sentence that enflames me: As for sexual behavior and identity, the author asserts that being transgender “is intrinsic and constitutional”—i.e., “the opposite of socially constructed.”
