The only thing that is missing from this deceitful treatise is what man and woman mean. What is the relation between the term male and the term man?

Blind means can’t see. There is a rich tapestry of cultural meaning associated with blindness. There’s history, metaphor, literature, discrimination, medical treatments, spirituality, depictions of blindness in art and literature. But before any of those meanings could attach, blindness had to exist on its own. There had to be an individual organism from a species that evolved sight, who could not see.

If all the cultural meanings of blindness suddenly disappeared for some reason, the condition of blindness could still exist.

So it is with sex. Sex and gender are related concepts. Like stars and astrology. Or race and racism. Or potato and French fries. You can have potatoes and no French fries, a sad state of affairs. But you can’t have French fries without potatoes. And you can’t have gender without sex. Sex is what gender is about, what it attaches to. Trans identity is utterly dependent on the near perfect regularity of sex.

Without sex, gender is meaningless. Without distinct sexes, “trans” is meaningless. Trying to hide sex, which arises without human intervention or knowledge, behind gender discourses won’t make it go away. Babies will keep being born from female humans who have mated with male humans.

It just makes it hard or impossible for the people gender is intended to hurt: women, to talk about our lives and act in the political realm.

Well said.

I like to say that gender as a concept is parasitic on sex. Why do trans people want so badly to change their bodies via """healthcare""" if sex did not exist or matter?

Why do the people-with-penises who say they are women want vaginas-clitorises-breasts if those body parts are not inherently female? What is the point? It all dissolves down into the basic male mindset: I want what I want and you have to give it to me, or I'll hurt you.

"something something [unintelligible] my mentals" is literally the answer they have for this lol. case in point, most of this video is a TiM attempting to rationalize exactly that. all they do is try to obfuscate the fact that their mental health relies on matching sex phenotypes by pulling into a vague personal preference realm. Just amazing how easily this rhetoric is still accepted despite how blatant it is

Edit: lol, for some reason my clipboard pasted a discord link rather than the video, anyway fixed with a timestamp highlighting the most explicit moment of admission. The whole video is tying this same pretzel in several different ways

I was just going to comment on how insane these people are, but your response is much better and more thorough!

I mean, these are the kind of people going around saying they're "bug" gender or "fae" gender or "teeth" gender, so they already jumped off the "gender is an extension of sex" biological reality pier about a mile or so back.

I agree that without sex gender is meaningless. It's like clothing where sex is the body.

The risk in these demands is, as you write, in that it makes it almost impossible to fight against sexism and misogyny and the oppression of women based on sex. For someone to argue what this person does is a truly narcissistic act.
