The modern Genderist movement has emerged via Internet culture as a reaction to feminist theory. Contrary to feminist belief, it posits without any academic reasoning that gender is an innate quality but also a fluid, interchangeable entity. In doing so it argues that biological sex does not determine the presence of social oppression and nor does Genderism acknowledge the existence of sex-based social class. The ultimate result of these faith-based beliefs is a de-gendering of social issues, in which feminist theory is depoliticized and stripped of social power. Genderists argue that abortion is not to be discussed as a female-only issue, due to their belief that personal identity trumps biological reality, and in doing so, Genderism strips women of their freedom to openly discuss issues that affect how women are viewed by society.
Sorry if this seems rude, but isn't your boyfriend(?) making you more unhappy than he is happy?
Yes he is.
"Now to demonstrate your devotion to the Spice Girls, I understand that you have a gift, and I wanted to challenge you on this gift tonight… you are able to do what?" "Their autographs." [x]
It’s a monumental overask to expect women to be gentle with the egos of men who only feigned friendship in order to get laid.
Thanks for spending our education budget on fighter jets to ensure ‘edge’ in our ‘regional’ defense Abbott. Seriously, the most dangerous thing in Australia is probably a fucking box jellyfish and I don’t think a fighter jet (a model that’s been plagued with issues too) is going to help with that. Someone needs to throw a vegemite sandwich at this idiot.
When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?
