Gender is a deliberate, carefully constructed edifice of patriarchy that is designed for one purpose. The oppression of females. Playing around with or in the more edgy nomenclature ‘subversion’ of gender roles – “I’m a non-binary, pansexual-genderqueer-demi-gurl” [wtf?] – is nothing more than a horizontal shuffle of the gender deck. The hierarchy is not disturbed or affected in anyway. Well, maybe women’s position in society is further eroded because of the flak they receive from delusional dudes who ‘deeply feel’ that they are female. Being labelled a T*RF or an exclusionary bigot for talking about female bodies and the processes associated with them is yet another man-made hurdle women (adult human females) must face.

It (gender and the transactivism that advocates for it) is a rather large crock of shit. Feminism is the class based movement that struggles from the emancipation of females from harsh strictures of patriarchy. By necessity feminism is a exclusionary movement- males, the oppressor class, do not get to be centred in, or lead the movement. One doesn’t invite the people who are oppressing you, to lead your movement – it is as asinine as expecting the KKK to be a central part of Black Lives Matter. So kindly, handmaidens and dudes, gtfo with your bowdlerized version of intersectionality and vainglorious struggle against ‘exclusion’ – if you spent a minute observing the societal and class dynamics at play you might see the magnitude of the latest gender Trojan-horse and maybe, just maybe, stop exuberantly pulling it through the gates.
