I don’t have a problem with gender because it’s a social construct.
I have a problem with gender because it’s a social construct that exists to justify and maintain male power over females by constructing a masculine identity out of culturally valued principles, and a feminine one out of actions and behavior intended to support female weakness.

When the “peace” you are continuously urged to return to looks like powerlessness, humiliation, poverty, boredom, and violence, it shouldn’t be a surprise many choose to fight.

If a woman didn’t want to have sex, though, abortion suddenly becomes okay. Most states and nations with laws restricting abortion to the point of a ban make exceptions for rape and incest. Any qualms about the feelings of the nugget of cells forming in the uterus are instantly, magically less important than a woman’s autonomy if she was raped or subjected to incest, because a woman who didn’t really, truly want to have sex is a good woman and shouldn’t be punished for it, whereas bad women who consent to sex, who might even actually enjoy it, deserve to suffer the consequences.

gender is not an aesthetic or an abstract concept or a set of cool meaningless post-modern labels, it is the hierarchy through which sex-based oppression is enforced and legitimized

Former NFL player Rosey Grier liked needlepoint. He wrote a book about it in 1973. (via Dangerous Minds)
Some of the toughest guys I’ve ever met have been all about the needlepoint!

"There is a stigma in this country around women with jobs. So I want to start an organization that provides girls in the Congo with examples of women around the world who have balanced family and career. Most men in this country think it’s only about money. They think: ‘If I make enough money for us to live, then my wife should take care of the children.’ The common belief is that a woman who works is hurting her children. People don’t realize that children also gain from the knowledge and experiences of their mother."
(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

Female people have babies. We reproduce labor. We are denied opportunity as a result. We have our sexuality controlled because of it. We are aborted for lack of penis. We are killed as infants for the same reason. We are denied education because of our physical bodies. We menstruate. If we are lesbian, we have no interest in dick. Our bodies and their biological processes are regulated and controlled via the superstructure of law, religions, culture, etc. Abortion. Birth control. Compulsory heteroxuality. Sexual availability to anyone with a dick. These are realities of being female. Saying ‘I am a woman’ does not make you the same as us. Our material reality is based on patriarchal and capitalist control of female reproductive capabilities
