please reblog the fuck out of this

What in the actual fuck.

WHAT THE FUCK

… what the— is this legit!?

Yeah it is. The phrase “three standard deviations below the mean” is the common reason for removing a male fallus and assigning the baby a female gender.

If you think about it, this actually sums up, pretty well, our society.

It physically hurt my stomach to see this.

Same >_< I’ve reblogged this before but it needs more publicity so I’m doing it again.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new and is still used today. ~Mod A

can someone explain this to me in Lehman’s terms pleSe? im confused and don’t know why everyone’s losing their shit because i don’t really understand the diagram

Okay, so there’s a wide variety of genitals out there. Here is a very simplistic chart of a spectrum genitals can fall on: 

Basically the clitoris and the penis are the exact same thing, very similar anatomy. Doctors will define it as a clitoris or penis depending on 1. if it has a urethra going through it and 2. it’s size. The diagram is the one they use to decide if they want to call the baby a girl or boy or intersex. Many babies are put through genital surgeries (sometimes without the parent’s knowledge or permission) to make them look more like a penis or more like a vulva which can cause many health problems as it is a surgery, or other problems related to being assigned a gender. Any kind of surgery that isn’t necessary for health should not be performed on babies because they cannot consent.

AND THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY SEX IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT!

Anonymous asked:

how is biphobia any different from homophobia? bisexual people are not discriminated against or oppressed for who they are, for being bisexual. the extent of the oppression that bisexuals do face is the homophobia that comes along with being in a relationship with someone of the same gender. but besides that, having one's feelings hurt by being called greedy is hardly "oppression," wouldn't you say?

You’re in luck! I have an entire blog dedicated to answering this question

Lol if bisexuals only faced homophobia, we wouldn’t get so much shit from gay people too. It’s really not hard to understand.
