If woman (adult female human) refers to how feminine someone deems himself to be according to gender ideology, then so what? It has no material effect, so why on earth would a “woman” gender entitle one to be treated in the manner of a woman if there’s only superficial similarity? The fact that men are even considering gender identity as their ticket into women’s sports or changerooms is ludicrous and contemptible.

We’ve gone from sparing people from rigid gender roles/interests/forms of dress based on sex, to gender taking on a life of its own, as though dressing in a stereotypically feminine way or having feminine interests makes you a woman regardless of male biology, not to mention the lived experience and socialisation that’s inextricably linked to biological sex.

People are free to dress and express themselves as they like, but we don’t need to bastardise language or play along or rearrange reality for the sake of validating someone’s self evaluation of how sex-atypical: stereotypically feminine, masculine, or neither (“gender non-binary”) they are. Gender identity ideology is even worse then cultural realtivism, can’t wait to hear what newfangled way the Regressive Left thinks up to disadvantage women while sparing male feelings next…

Glutting myself on all that life has to offer and writing about it. Art, language, science, humour, and whatever else takes my fancy…
