Dangerous

Am I a danger to proper boys and girls? I can only hope so.

▪️Proper boys and girls have learned there are two boxes and we all must be shoved into one or the other.
▪️Proper boys and girls have learned that we have a fixed gender at birth, oh and it’s determined by our genitals.
▪️Proper boys and girls have learned what to wear, how to walk, how to talk, how to relate to others in accordance with their girl or boy box.
▪️Proper boys and girls have learned how to identify others, putting them into the correct girl or boy box.
▪️Proper boys and girls have learned to raise and educate children as proper boys and girls, no matter the cost.

Proper boys and girls are the prisoners, the prison bars, and the guards themselves of gender confinement. And I’m so done with that. Aren’t you?

⭐️Improper boys and girls know that there are a thousand genders (conservative estimate 😎)
⭐️Improper boys and girls know that genitals and gender have the first three letters in common and that’s all.
⭐️Improper boys and girls know that you can wear what you want, style your hair how you want, talk the way you want, without any of this hinting at your gender unless you want it to.
⭐️Improper boys and girls know that the way to find out someone else’s gender, if they agree to disclose it, is to ask them.
⭐️Improper boys and girls know that children, if not constrained and shackled, will grow into the many genders they are, will grow into freedom.

Am I a danger to proper boys and girls? I can only hope so.


P.S. This only looks at one facet of freedom. There are many interlocking systems of oppression to be torn down, implicating race, class, sex, gender, ethnicity and lots more, until we are all truly free.
