Oh no he’s definitely doing it to wind me up on purpose. He’s just … like that.

What a cunt. I have no patience with guys like that. They get my angry face until they stop being arseholes.

I want to note that the way the sex binary looks like it’s present throughout the animal world is that white scientists have a terrible habit of labeling everything “male” or “female” even when it makes no sense.

Like, by any reasonable metric, bees have three sexes: drone, queen, and worker. Workers are only labelled female because someone couldn’t abide the idea of something not being either one or the other.

And before someone calls “genetics” there are many species where both sexes have the exact same genetics, and even many where individuals can change reproductive capacity at will, and scientists suddenly have no problem calling the ones who grow eggs “female” even though they were “male” two weeks ago.

Some species of mammals reproduce asexually. They have only one sex. It is still called “female” because it makes babies even though one might reasonably ask why even make the distinction when every single individual makes babies just the same.

microaggressions:

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.

Holy crap, I never realized.

I get really passionate about misinformation, okay.

“On a site that has a million more 20 year old women than 40 year old women show data is skewed towards 20 year olds. WHAT A FUCKING SURPRISE.” —

One more quote:

"Is it remarkable? Do we know if there are spikes at the ages of 30/35/40 for women? Is it men who cling to those ages or is it women? Maybe there are too many women who are not willing to report their correct age after a certain threshold. How do we know which one is true?

Oh right we don’t, because all data is self-reported and our so called data scientist cannot be bothered with checking.

What people read in that book might be good before bedtime but don’t jump to conclusions based on it. Please. It’s garbage in garbage out.”
