So the new TERF “repeat it until it’s considered true” mantra is that somehow “men don’t have gender, women do”, and christ I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
I mean jesus fuckin mess, how is this not instantly debunked as the most MRAest dudebro viewpoint out there, rather than a tenet of a so-called “feminism”? It reifies cishet masculine presentation as a normative social “default” in a way that even religious right social conservatives wouldn’t dare, because to them any other form of presentation is “performative”.
I’m going to scream this every single day of my life until someone pays attention: MASCULINITY IS PERFORMATIVE MASCULINITY IS PERFORMATIVE MASCULINITY IS PERFORMATIVE
Literally any trans woman & many gay men can tell you that masculinity and heteronormative presentation is indeed performative & a lot of us are coerced into it unwillingly. This coercion is backed up with social disenfranchisement and violence.
Also, like, if a trans woman is a man and a man is an entity devoid of gender, isn’t that some sort of rhetorical divide by zero error?
