amanda. officially a 20 something on a journey, including but not limited to: working too much and still being broke, punk rock, hyperbole, embroidery, watching too many movies, and not getting enough sleep. I never wear a bra, I am body and sex positive, and I'm so bored with the U.S.A.

me when buying something over $10: do i need this? do i need any material objects? will this matter when i face the great abyss?

Since “biological sex” is actually a social construct, those who say that it is not often have to argue about what it entails. Some say it’s based on chromosomes (of which there are many non-XX/XY combinations, as well as diversity among people with XY chromosomes), others say it’s genitals or gonads (either at birth or at the moment you’re talking about), others say it’s hormone levels (which vary widely and can be manipulated), still others say it’s secondary sex characteristics like the appearance of breasts, body hair and muscle mass (which vary even more). Some say that it’s a combination of all of them. Now, this creates a huge problem, as sex organs, secondary sex characteristics and hormone levels aren’t anywhere close to being universal to all men or women, males or females.

Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get gender confirmation surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changable.

Exactly how my girlfriend acts (down to the words and motions) when she sees something online that she likes. I’m almost Bob here, but sometimes I share in the excitement.

I am a fucking delight, I whisper to no one as I put something witty in the tags.

I’ll marry a man who knows how I take my tea, coffee, and alcohol
And knows when to make which.
