Let's play cricket
Could've gone with the Hmmm, interesting... but fuck it, this shit's dynamite
(Rule 17.a subsection iii)
rather than the entire machinations of society and history that force gender binarism
a potentially interesting and important debate stifled ..at birth
nice try though
yeah i though this. parents would still see either a penis or a vagina and then think penis ∴ boy ∴ football, racing cars etc. what it says on the birth certificate doesn't really change that
“The treatment” starts in the womb with gender assignment at the 20-week scan.
and maybe having to think outside the naming box to do so
I BET you do
that won't make the kid sound like a bellend at school
You'll have half a million Ashleys born every year
i wanna live in a world where everyone sounds like an autechre song. only then will humankind free itself from the animal kingdom
idea for your novel: at birth people are assigned, at birth, one of like 50 genders and it's done using a wheel of fortune
someone takes on the gender of an aeroplane (personal pronoun: air, en, ais)
i was gonna do a 'drag selfie' thread sometime in the next few weeks
need some 'conventional' drag mind you, and my gf is still in America (it's been 7 months and I still haven't met her! That's the spirit of the age, I guess)
Been meaning to watch Season 3 of Catfish.
you're not even the worst
All I'm saying is that if she can't videochat because she's always so busy in the studio recording her latest rap album, you take care babes...
the idea of L_T dating a rapper is wonderful.
"Dearest, I know you were thinking along the lines of 'lick dat pussy good' but have you considered changing it to 'osculate mine pudenda capaciously, till the heavens hath egressed to supplant my milieu'"
it's Latin for 'that which one must be ashamed of'
fuck that noise tbh
so I'm glad that the other word is the issue (rightly so, I did not know that) Do you have a suitable replacement?
'the heavens hath egressed to supplant my milieu' is actually kinda brilliant and works perfectly
I'm quite pleased with that then.
it's an outrage
(where we will all be mutants anyway due to A-Bomb)
in the blissful repose of nothingness.
Really this is just one of the fucking millions of absurd unpredictable obstacles beyond our control isn't it?
because gender stereotypes are entirely socially constructed
and there is many a tome written on gender itself being a social construct
I guess it all rests on whether there is a genuine usefulness in understand a thing by classifying it or whether there is a system of classification in place in order to prescribe a boundary and a limit to a thing
I'm the baby
I'm a baby
we only just got here
I'm sure it went on to make really insightful points. No, really.
haven't read this yet
- Wow she's so cute
- It's not a girl
- Oh god I'm sorry, he's so cute
- It's not a boy either. We are going to let them decide their gender when they are 3
- Give me back that Sophie Giraffe and homecooked moussaka cos I'm out of here
- That is your right
- Did you see the Sakho elbow?
- Don't have a tv
who knew they'd grow so close
Our little'un is very suspicious of her.
has a healthy suspicion of imposing gender assignations on animals without their consent.
Is that the actual number of people? Seems like a lot
Impossible to know, really.
Surely a doctor assigning an infant a gender doesn't mean their decision will be enforced by the parents?
- What are you in for?
- Kicked off at the hospital, went properly mental
- What happened? Pissed up in A&E?
- No. The doctor only went and assigned a gender to my baby?
- Said it was a boy.
- So it was a girl?
- Neither. Going to let them decide when they are 3
- Did you see that Sakho elbow?
- Don't have a tv
- Keep pushing, the head's almost out
- There we go
- Thank God, what is it, doctor?
- It's a HUMAN BEING you gender binarist cis breeder FUCK
Conversations in prison that broach the concept that gender is a social construct and that men can identify as women rarely end well.
So the paediatrician checks the genitals. That's literally all that happens. In our situation no one discussed gender or anything, and when my missus asked if baby was a boy or girl (cos she had a section) we were told to 'take a look'. Irrespective of what happens at the hospital, that's nothing compared to when you have friends and family coming around with princess outfits/football kits/blue gift bags etc. Surely that's when the gender assignment happens - not during the hospital and the first important checks??
Also our baby has a gender-neutral name = 10000000 indie points
