I’ve noticed that almost everyone will agree that much of what they were taught in grade school was oversimplified, outdated, uninformed, or biased. But when you go ‘yeah, also that stuff about only men having penises and only women having uteruses and there are only two true binary biological sexes, which align to anatomy and chromosomes, and that sex is the same as gender, right?’ people are like oh, no, that stuff was totally accurate and representative.
Hey, guess what most of our teachers and parents totally didn’t understand? The biological, physiological, and social makeups of sex and gender is as complicated as history and physics.
I’m finding this comic site genius. Even the name is pretty clever. You think you’re going to a site called Robo-Thugs but it’s actually Robot Hugs, and that’s much cooler. Maybe that was just me. I don’t know, but I know that it nails point after point in ways so simple that even dumbasses who purposely try to misunderstand this stuff can understand it.
Which means nobody who needs to will read it. But you should anyway, and not feel so alone in being one of the smart people in the world.
