note to self never go back into the third gender tag
October 1, 2012
(tw: white supremacy, disgusting levels of erasure, colonial attitudes about gender)
It is filled with mostly white people* calling themselves ‘third gender’
and one person who claims that genderqueer IDs don’t exist. and when someone brought up an Indigenous ID like Two Spirit, they claimed that *still* didn’t exist and was more of a ‘spiritual’ thing and their FAQ says that Intersex people are physically defective.
So tempted to go after that person, but their very extensive FAQ makes it clear that they are happy being a white supremacist. And I don’t have time for that.
(remember, if they person never outright states a race, I assume they are white – only sane thing to do online, not because white people are default but because they think they are default and rarely mark their race)
