Anytime before 2013 or so was when I still had not heard of this “third gender” speak. I was blissfully unaware of it as I had browsed the web. I haven’t even heard much of it on my television, if I think about it. I had yet to immerse myself in the politics of “gender identity” enough to form an opinion- perhaps it would have been too complicated for me to comprehend at the time. But when Facebook first laid out its catalog of genders (fifty-eight, to be exact), it was when I had dipped my toes into the waters of this discussion. Well, more like splash them- the first thing that came to my mind was how utterly ridiculous it was. Fifty-eight genders? Was there really a need for that? I couldn’t understand it then, and I still don’t now. And I wasn’t the only one.
It was only most recently, perhaps in the last few years, that the discussion of gender identity began to really make some serious waves, with memorable terms such as “gender fluid”, “non-binary” and “agender” being amongst the list of the seemingly endless “genders” one can experiment with.
I have a bit of the unpopular opinion: I only recognize two genders.
“Kelly, how could you possibly exclude genderqueer, nonbinary, bigender, etc.?!”
It’s simple, really- they are feelings. Not genders. There’s a reason you don’t see “non-binary cornflake” as an option on any job applications. Maybe I should stop where I’m going with this- I don’t want to give anyone ideas.
The same community, as an example, has even tried to use intersex- an abnormality– as a way to validate the possibility of someone being neither male or female, by also citing the differences in chemical brain activity on the side. They have concocted many ways to spread their message, or what I like to call, confuse you. Spending time on sites like Tumblr or browsing the entire team at Everyday Feminism , where these delusional concepts are rampant, can easily prompt you or anyone else to wonder if there really are only two genders. You might have also heard of the ridiculous “76genders” hash tag, started by Milo Stewart, in an idle attempt to help people understand that “nobody experience gender the same way”. Milo even went on to say there are probably “millions of genders”, which is where things begin to get haphazard.
It’s a known fact that the left has also paved the pathway for one’s decision to slice away the body parts they no longer have any desire for. This sickly manner of thinking is fiercly defended, such as being supportive of people, like xoJane writer Lore Graham for example, with removing her breasts and uterus just so she may fit the non-binary mold. Below, Loren explains one of the reasons why she had grotesquely mutilated herself, externally and internally.
“I felt weird having breasts and I despised my body’s ability to become pregnant.”
She also goes on to say that she now lives in a body she has “customized to better harmonize with her brain”.
What we see here is nothing more than a rampaging, self-harming mental illness. You can say it’s too late in the anatomical sense, since she has severed one the most beautiful aspects of the female body from herself: the ability to create a cherubic baby, as well as masectomize away the ability to nurture the infant with the milk.
All that in the name of being “non-binary”.
Allies to these people have also cracked down on what is perceived to be bigotry. Just glance over to New York City, where under tyrannical law that’s overly sensitive, you can be fined heavily for misgendering someone. Even in Canada, where an “anti-transphobia” bill has been enacted, to which somebody being found guilty can even be jailed- for up to two years.
Thanks much, Bill de Blasio! You too, Justin Trudeau!
If it’s not the genders that seem endless, it’s also the pronouns. Here’s a chart that lists other pronouns beyond “he” and “she”. Are you craving more? Here’s another link, this time with both a chart and “fill in the lines” practice, so you can totally learn not to misgender xir over there, and also sound grammatically correct. You don’t care about xir’s feelings…?
Well, you’re a shitlord.
Most of the misgendering they complain so much about comes from the fact that some of these pronouns they ask- no, demand- everybody to use usually sounds unbelievably idiotic and bizarre in the English language. Even though “they” shouldn’t be a pronoun, it at least sounds somewhat normal. Somewhat. It doesn’t mean “they” should be used, though.
But Xe? Zir? Ne? Even Fae? These people trying to pass them off as legitimate pronouns to those around them will not always work. And, people scoffing at them is not some kind of “phobia”- they don’t know what the hell they were just told. Just imagine hearing the following:
“Fae has said so faeself that Frozen is a bad movie.” I had to use the sites above to help me write that, in case you were wondering.
When we hear something- or anything- strange, our natural reaction is summed in the following:
“Wait, what? Fae-what? What the hell?”
As I said earlier, the left has put forth the maximum effort with accommodating those identifying differently. College campuses have even become diseased with this type of nonsense. And while doing all this, the left seems to have determined the enemy: cis-gendered people.
But what does cisgendered mean?
The term “cis-gendered” describes an individual whose gender identity is matched to their biological sex assigned at birth. Nothing seems wrong with that, right? It’s not the case, apparently. “Cis” people are viewed as evil-doing, corrupt supremacists of the trans community. They have been affectionately called “cissies”. Let us not forget the lovable three-word statements such as “Die Cis Scum” and “Down With Cis”. They’ve even extended their outrage to the doctors who help birth babies, complaining that doctors should not be already deciding a baby’s gender.
Another hobby of theirs is to claim that cisphobia does not exist, as well as say cis privilege is an actual thing. They swear on it! But, if cis people were to pull that kind of trick, such as saying “Down With Trans”, then they better brace themselves for the enormous backlash. Here’s the thing, though- they wouldn’t. They wouldn’t do so because they really don’t have that much time on their hands. But some of the people on Tumblr do, for sure!
Now, I use the word “some” because not every blogger on Tumblr has this mindset. There are reasonable, rational bloggers on this site. They already know very well the type of connotation that comes with the word “Tumblr”, and they work hard not to be associated with “those” people.
It’s them versus the flower-crown xirs!
If this community wants to be taken seriously, since they have proven themselves to be nothing but laughable, they need to recognize the following:
-understand, once again, that until science is somehow able to confirm the validity of the “third gender”, then one cannot claim to others their own bodies are something that’s nonexistent. The fundamental compositions of their anatomy have always had the final say- not their Tumblr blogs or how they “feel”.
-they are not as “oppressed” as they think they are. Just by living in the US, they are sheltered from the unimaginable, inhumane horrors coming from places, for example, like Daesh in the Middle East- where nobody will put up with their xir/xim pronouns. Have there been crimes against these people in the US? Nobody is denying that. But these people, in the current year, have the red carpet rolled out for them. They are beyond blessed to be here, because while people may not agree with their nonsense, they will never, ever be hurled off rooftops, or have other horrible things done to them.
I don’t expect this community to understand any of this anytime soon- some of them are far, far too gone. But one can only hope, right?
