Sex or Gender: Does the Form of Transition Matter?.
Gender hurts women and girls.
The stereotypes which limit our opportunities in life keep us perpetually under paid. The social expectation that we be caretakers to not just our own immediate family, but to extended family, neighbors, schools, co-workers, basically any stranger in need, means we are chronically exhausted, afflicted with multiple stress-related illnesses and are afford little, if any, down time in order to recuperate. We live under constant threat of sex-based violence. We are the largest population of people who have no effective voice within our society. Our bodies are not even our own, white men in dark suits control our reproductive processes.
All of this is done by gendering us. By implementing a coordinated system of social control which limits what females are allowed to do, say or be.
Gender is control system used to oppress the female sex. Gender hurts. It’s supposed to hurt.
