While watching the National last night they mentioned the hook for the next segment.  Some Canadian musician has decided to ‘come out’ as ‘non-binary’.  In other following news, snow in Canada happens in May and June and water is fucking wet.

  “Singer Demi Lovato revealed on Wednesday they identify as non-binary and are changing their pronouns, telling fans the decision came after “self-reflective work.”

Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all — I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary,” Lovato announced on Twitter and in an accompanying video, adding they will “officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward.”

I’m not sure what exactly the point of this piffle is? Let’s look at what the official federal Government of Canada website(???) says about being non-binary (also, why does this page exist?):

“Non-Binary(also ‘genderqueer’). Referring to a person whose gender identity does not align with a binary understanding of gender such as man or woman. It is a gender identity which may include man and woman, androgynous, fluid, multiple, no gender, or a different gender outside of the “woman—man” spectrum.”

Well that was not particularly illuminating or even helpful.

There are no alternate ways of ‘aligning’ with a binary.  You are either in category X(x) or category X(y).

It is within here that we can see why this gender magic is so popular right now.  Everybody can get the attention and support they need for being bold and courageous – and not changing a damn thing about themselves, other than demanding that others jump through their gender magic hoops to ‘validate’ their choices.

How utterly boring one must be to make a declarative statement that is essentially empty of meaning because if we think about it we are all ‘non-binary’ as we all encompass stereotypical traits and mannerisms from both side of the gender binary.  No one acts according to 100% male or 100% female sex stereotypes.   So, congratuations?  You are just like the rest of us?


Just a quick primer on what gender is:


It is a system designed to subordinate women.  Let’s get rid of gender, not weave more flowers into the chains that bind us.
