Love how I, for the first time, publicly suggest that I may be a woman and I get boosts on it. 😂 The internet is a weird place. I haven't told my best friend about this yet, but strangers on the internet? hell yeah

question about being trans and gender not-essentialism 

i just realized this isn't about gender essentialism at ALL, rather about gender constructionism.

sorry about that.

for what it's worth, i'm subscribe to butler's views (gender performativity).

question about being trans and gender essentialism 

I believe that 'woman' is a historically constructed category with roots in patriarchy. I don't think this is a particularly controversial statement on this website.

But I was thinking... and I'm going to put this in very personal terms... If I wanted to identify as a woman, how do I know that it's not a result of trauma to want to identify as a gender-category that is constructed to be the 'lesser' gender?

GTA "wasted" screen but it says "defederated" in that font

ableism 

Your life may just fall apart if you're a normal person with aberrant behavior, but if you're rich as fuck, that aberrant behavior may either be one of the reasons you're successful (you disregard morality, for instance) or it may not have any consequences (unnecessary spending, e.g. on drugs, can be afforded without your life falling apart). Rich people just may not go to therapy.

Random thought: what if only the lower classes have mental disorders?

By 'having a mental disorder' I mean being diagnosed with one. But more than that: being of the lower class may be a necessary condition for being counted as having a certain disorder.
i.e. when you're an asshole as a normal person it's called borderline, psychopathy, narcissistic personality disorder, etc.
but when you're an asshole as a rich person you're just successful

angry, swearing, conditional morality 

anyone who tries to fire back at "bad people" by co-opting (read: lifting wholesale) their racist, ableist, sexist, fascist rhetoric of dehumanization and deciding who deserves human rights can fucking stop or get the fuck away from me

ableism 

my pet peeve is when people on the internet make fun of people who take a joke seriously, and act as if they're stupid.

like, my dude. that probably aint stupidity, that's autism. but even if they really are 'stupid', does that warrant being mean to them? do you hate less intelligent people?

i just realized the irony of having the username "jellal", which is an anime character, but having a different anime character as my avatar.
