I used to hate sleeping because it’s just like being unconscious for eight hours but now I love sleep because it’s just like being unconscious for eight hours
It’s been such a bad day like I don’t even get it
You okay, friend?
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear."
People who think there are only two sexes aren’t worth your time tbh. No argument you have will mean anything to someone with a 9th grade understanding of biology.
We didn’t fuckin’ stutter. we mean sexes. Way to erase intersex folk. Get the fuck out.
Also intersecting people are kinda… Something else? The TWO sexes are chromosome pairs XX and XY
We didn’t fuckin’ stutter. Intersex people are people with valid sexes.
Again, you have a 9th grade understanding of biology. Various mods have biology/nursing degrees. stfu.
Indeed. XX and XY are not in fact human sexes. They’re chromosomes, and genes that govern what are commonly described as primary and secondary sexual characteristics are located all over the 23 pairs, not just the 23rd pair that cis people verbally fellate every time they talk to a trans woman.
Intersex people are not “kinda something else” and internetaddiction can fuck right off with that dyadic bullshit. Intersex people are part of the realm of human possibility, so stop fucking shoving us off to the side and pretending we don’t count when discussing the fact that sex is a social construct, because your bullshit “XX is female, XY is male” is one of the reasons that intersex genital mutilation was a big thing.
More than two sexes, more than two genders. And sexes are not just “binary” and “intersex.”
