If true gender equality comes to fruition, then what it will mean is that people will stop giving a fuck about one another's gender. Everyone would have equal opportunity, treatment, respect and appreciation, while being judged based on character, ability, personality and other proper grounds based on the situation. There would be no need for gender-based celebrations, since all related hurdles would have already been crossed.
What will be celebrated though, is mankind coming one step closer to overall human equality.

What is the weirdest gendered assumption a man has ever made about you?
If you're really concerned about your "gender identity" then you must not have a lot else to worry about, i mean i understand mental illness and stuff but i don't see much of an excuse for a functioning adult to be confused about their gender unless they literally have nothing better to think about
In my opinion regardless if you are a man or a woman you should pay for the bill, if it is your decision to go and eat something you should pay for it, I am not talking about a quick snack, I am talking about going to a restaurant and having a full meal.
Personally I don't like going to a restaurant on my first date I would rather just walk in a park and talk there instead of eating something but sometimes I or also some of my friends get talked into eating something in a restaurant instead.
I don't care about the money to be quiet honest, to me its about the principle that some people feel entitled that you owe them this money because of spending time together this is sometimes so extreme that these people could might as well save someone as "free food" in their contacts.
Splitting the bill would maybe be the alternative but never should someone who gets invited into eating out be looked at in a weird way if he decides not to pay for the entire bill.
Paying for what you ate is rea... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm seeing a lot of posts all over Reddit attempting to explain what gender critical feminists actually believe, and a lot of them are completely wrong. This is a post addressed to newcomers who are visiting this sub to figure out what gender critical feminism is all about.The first thing to get out of the way is this: no, we don't believe that you MUST have periods to be a woman. I've seen so many posts saying "JK Rowling is menopausal and doesn't have periods, so by her definition she wouldn't be a woman!" or "not every woman has a period, some women don't have uteruses!" She isn't saying that at all. Having a period is not a necessary condition for being a woman, but it is a sufficient condition. It's sufficient in the sense that if you experience menstruation then that automatically puts you in the woman category (or at the very least it puts you in the female category). But it's not it's not necessary that you must be capable of menstruation in order to be put into the woman cate... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sensitivity in my opinion is crippling in today’s world. You can be respectful to all cultures, races etc. and still be able to laugh about the unique characteristics of each person. For example, I’m a taller, skinny Caucasian male. I also have large ears. Call me cracker, call me lightweight, call me anything you want. We should encourage laughter in these topics because they are the areas that make us unique as individuals. Stop being sensitive about who you are. Rather accept it, because the areas that you are insecure about happen to everyone. No one is perfect.
Being able to laugh with one another when jokingly making fun is far better than scolding every individual who comments on your appearance. Laughter truly is the best medicine and I wish that was utilized more, especially with everything going on.
I have no clue why it is legally accepted and socially accepted for someone to take hormones to "change their gender"
But not to increase their performance or physical abilities
A little background: I'm an Indian woman. Not a "cis" woman, just a woman. God, it feels nice just typing that. I studied genetics in university for four years, and was a national-level "topper" in Biology during high school. Suffice to say, my knowledge of biological sexes in humans is MORE than enough to draw a logical conclusion to these conversations.
Basically, the misogynistic response to J.K. Rowlings wonderfully succinct tweets had me utterly confused. I suppose I was a run-off-the-mill, blind-as-a-bat liberal feminist, unaware it was being said that transwomen are BIOLOGICAL FEMALE HUMANS and anything to the contrary erases their existence by zapping them off this planet on an alien spaceship to Genderland and utterly destroying their mental health, tearing it to shreds with the unyielding, razor sharp weapons of reality and fact. I immediately got sucked into studying gender-roles, gender-dysphoria, SELF-ID (????), and the horror of the transgender umbrella ideology.

Every fucking time I bring up BLM and talk about the protests she immediately talks about gender. Why the fuck does she need to mention gender when I’m talking about racism.
Here’s a few quotes
“Women are slaves everywhere in the world”
“Compared to women black people have it easy”
THE FUCK. Why the fuck. My gran tries to talk about BLM my mother brings up gender.
It’s like my mother can’t fucking do anything than play the victim and can’t admit that anyone other than her have discriminatory problems.
Edit:when she says women are slaves she doesn’t mean used to be slaves she quite literally means they are still slaves as in ALL women are still slaves even in 1st world countries.
Is it that hard for people to understand??
So, I've mentioned this in other places and have never gotten a satisfactory answer.
In my view, gender theory relies on extremely rigid and outdated gender norms to formulate a 'spectrum' of gender.
For example, what would be called a tomboy in the 1980s or so would now be considered "presenting as less female" than, say, a makeup wearing cheerleader who always wears skirts. But ask a tomboy who isn't in on modern gender theory if wanting to climb trees makes her less of a woman. I dare you.
I'm a USMC combat veteran. I served with ladies who were in the Lioness program, female Marines in potentially combat roles. They cursed, spit, and could kick the shit out of guys like Milo Yiannoupolos. That doesn't make them any more male than him and it doesn't make him female.
The closest thing to an adequate answer is that none of these things matter for gender. There is in fact no metric whatsoever for gender. It's just a state of mind with no real characteristics. Which makes it entir... keep reading on reddit ➡
One of my friends from undergraduate is a super bubbly blonde girly girl (think Reese Witherspoon from Legally Blonde) who also happened to graduate valedictorian in engineering and then went on to a top graduate school. She would get some funny reactions when telling people what she did for a living, but the neat thing about engineering is its objectivity: she could prove her competence.
How about you?
I've been on a bit of a Duggar Dive the past couple weeks and realized there are countless bits dedicated to Jessa not being able to cook now that she's married. Like, a lot. And then even when she is cooking, she's not washing things, leaving meat raw, holding knives in a way that makes me cringe. It seems like she's come a super long way, but it' shocking she got married not knowing anything about cooking.
But I assumed this was just some fluke; she slipped through the homemaker cracks, so to speak, and never learned, considering how "important" gendered chores seem to be to the Duggars. There's tons of videos of the parents talking about how important it is for girls (Boob voice: and, uh, you know, boys too) to learn how to cook and keep husbands ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’d have no money.
There is no gender, take off your clothes.
So J.K. Rowling accidentally copied and pasted a phrase from a gender critical article on Maria McLaughlin's assault into a tweet replying to a child and now Twitter is going crazy.
I'm really enjoying it. It's really funny.
Firstly this was her tweet:
I love this truly fabulous Ickabog, with its bat ears, mismatched eyes, and terrifying bloodstained teeth! In court, Wolf claimed the Facebook post in which he'd said he wanted to 'fuck up some TERFs' was just 'bravado'.
And then it says '#TheIckabog' which *chef's kiss* is such an incredible mistake, I'm just loving the mental image of this mythical Ickabog presiding over the trial as an arbiter of justice for women.
But yeah, all the wokebros are out in the comments mansplaining themselves to orgasm about how evil and 'transphobic' she is. J.K's replies are getting more and more overtly gender critical and she's even threatened to sue one shitty TRA who said that she is a danger to children (which is rich because his whole job i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve seen a ton of people not use words like fireman or chairman because apparently they only refer to males. That is totally not how we use those words. I find it perfectly acceptable to say, “Sarah’s a fireman” because there I don’t think there is anything gendered about the -man ending. If you want to use something like chairwoman, then that is specific but the the normal words that end in -man could be either gender. I won’t die on this hill if usage completely, but it’s just my personal opinion
Hi Friends! I have to figure out how to link my last post but until then its in my history bot.
Obligatory no one has permission to use my stuff! I know it really doesn't do anything but still.
First I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the awesome advice, information and just overall support. I honestly didn't realize how helpful it is to have a community of strangers help you through your shit. Its hard to have these conversations with people connected to your real life sometimes. I tried so hard to reply so all of you but my pregnant ass gets so tired, between growing a human, still working from home full time and trying to get our life prepared for a child I swear I am exhausted 24/7.
I haven't heard from MIL at all since we told everyone baby is a girl. It felt good, I wasn't stressed and just enjoyed everything. Typically for every holiday she wants a picnic, my husband hates it, his dad hates it. Back when I wanted to be a good DIL I would always RSVP to these for u... keep reading on reddit ➡
There are certain things that are better suited for men such as construction, military, working in mines and others that are better suited for women. This isn’t to say men and women are limited to their roles. It simply means that men and women are more efficient in terms of certain roles in society. For example, even in Scandanavian countries that have gone further than any other country in terms of gender neutrality, the differences in genders are FAR higher than any other country. Women choosing to go into STEM fields has dropped further. Many psychologists argue that if you leave a society to make its own choice, men and women will segregate themselves in accordance to their capabilities and natural inclincation towards certain tasks. Also, you cannot blame “culture” because even the most conservative views and cultural expectations of women, have seen a huge portion of women in STEM fields, higher than the West. For example, Iran, 70% of graduates in medicine are women, in Algeria... keep reading on reddit ➡
