matildaswan replied to your post “boobprivilege replied to your post “like i am on board with gender…”

gender is the psychological manifestation of the binary sex divide - its masculine/feminine, rather than male/female. its the connotative associations of gender that are the issue, not the gender itself.

i’m sorry but i’m so confused as to what you’re saying omg not trying to be rude i swear. are you saying gender is innate or?

the general definition is that sex is the biological aka male/female cos science/medicine is all about the binary opposites, while gender is the psychological element, that according to normativity is supposed to ‘match up’ w/ ur sex - aka feminine females and masculine males. gender is constructed thru a lot of things, most of which I’d attribute to society and social conditioning. 

(that make sense? do i need to elaborate on anything?)

the point that @boobsprivilege, was it? (hello, hi) made was on point - its not the gender that’s the problem - its all the things we associate w/ them -  women w/ the husbands and the babies and nothing else while the men do all the rational thinking and the being manly men, and there’s no room for anyone else outside of the boxes.

idk what your essay is about but this is all true and important information!

this essay is great (still dying tho) it’s “How has the concept of female “difference” informed feminist conceptions of equality?” and basically im writing a history of feminism in 2000 words b/c all the multiplicities of feminisms arose from the not factored in differences women endure that result in discrimination - first wave was all about white middle class women, and each faction has refocused on issues that weren’t included; race, sexuality, class etc.

post feminism is a crock of shite tho ‘feminism is over its dead its not punk anymore i’m totally fine with society as it w/ the objectification of women and hypersexuality of young girls and esp non-hetero ladies’ like no fuck that this isnt equality we’ve made strides we won some battle we haven’t won the war yet

being a feminist means changing your behaviour to better support women, not re-labelling everything you do already as ~an empowering statement~

#i fucking hate 'empowerment' as if its the be all and end all of equality  #empowerment is about the individual  #fuck yeah be happy  #but no empowerment is not liberation

"The concept of post-feminism is not under discussion. Given the inequality still suffered by women within modern society, it is obvious that feminism, in any of its multiplicities, has not achieved it goals. The notion that society today is based on equality and therefore feminism is an outdated and irrelevant ideology with no place in modern civilization is ridiculous."

do I include in essay, or don’t I?

i’m thinking do.
