Also when I was a teen I loved coloring my hair different colors. Now I associate colored hair with genderists ☹️

Same, I’ve never liked pastel hair colours (vivid hair colours were okay) but now I side-eye them all. And I used to be a Goth with black dyed hair and a violet clip-on hairpiece.

Hey not all off us with pastel hair are TRAs some of us are just metal heads !! Plus I’m a Gen z so it’s pretty much common to dye your hair . I will say it’s more common among the TRAs mostly because coloured hair is associated with alt fashion and culture.

I know, I have friends who’d be in their fifties now who are GC (not radfems) and like pastel hair. Like everything else, it’s spoiled the moment TRAs touch it.

I feel you there but it's not like the TRA uniform. The hair is not the problem. It's just hair. Plus I'm such that I see older women in my area who have no idea about transgender politics, getting conned by some gen z tra nazi into a trans (blue pink) dye job.

Ugh I do the same thing and i feel shitty about it.. I do not want to be someone that judges people by their hair color but here I am

I saw a female person with shaven hair and a bright button up shirt today and instantly assumed her them/they pronouns.

I feel SO bad because everyone GNC has the 80% probability of being identifying as TQ fuckery. The whole point is that GNC SHOULD be the norm and is completely fine. But so many of these delusional denialists also have this look that I absolutely can't help but corelate the two. I try to give the benefit of the doubt but my god is it thin

There's a reason the "why do they all look like that" is a meme

If inclusive language was more precise then why would she need help finding the words to describe?

People like these are teaching biology. Sigh.

"Inclusive language is more precise and respectful." So precise that you are having trouble explaining exactly what it refers to? 🤔

Hey #ScienceTwitter,

I'm using inclusive language when teaching the reproductive systems, eg: pregnant person.

I tripped up today talking about fetal circulation. What's a better term than maternal circulation? Parental implies either parent. I want something more specific

Oh, this blew up in the wrong way. So let's clarify for the haters.

Women are people.

Not all women can get pregnant

Some girls can get pregnant and are not women.

Some trans men can get pregnant and are not women.

Inclusive language is more precise and respectful.

Muting this now.

"fOr tHe HatErS" 🙄

Edit: wow some of the serious answers she got before the TERF squad came are bad

It feels like a mouthful, but perhaps “blood/circulation of the pregnant person?” Or even just “non-fetal?”

Host. Host circulation. Nice and simple.


Yeah that's totally the loving and healthy way to see ourselves. As the host of a parasite.

Well in all fairness it turns out the mothers of TRAs were hosing parasites ...

Lol exactly. So precise but she’s struggling and has to go to twitter for help. THEN she mutes it when people don’t respond like how she wants lol comedy.

They really ruined having colorful hair for everyone didn't they...

Of course she's a danger hair. How embarrassing that this idiot is allowed to teach brainwash kids.

I know it's silly to even take such arguments earnestly but I will because the affected helplessness around language is just annoying and I'm provoked: If a girl gets pregnant, she's a mother and "maternal" circulation will do just fine. Same for the "trans man". If a woman doesn't get pregnant, then I guess "circulation" will suffice if that's what we're talking about. "Inclusive" language is ameliorate redefinition that is not designed to be precise, but to shift meanings to support certain political ends, which in this case is equivocating between the old meanings of "man" and "woman" which are fixed to sex but full of meaningful content, and people's self chosen identities, which are largely without meaningful content.

how confusing for every person (child?) in your class who has difficulty with learning, language, ESL, memory issues or otherwise. might as well just choose another subject.
