  1. A tweeting of this image is mentioned in a piece of “investigative journalism” on the topic of a professor’s heresy/thoughtcrime by the Inquisitors–sorry, Editors-in-Chief–of The Oxford Student:

    Transphobic tweets linked to Oxford sociology professor


    “The account also posted a meme with the caption “But I told them I am nonbinary” over a still from the TV show The Handmaid’s Tale, which shows four “handmaids” (women forced into sex slavery and resultant involuntary childbirth). The implication appears to be a ridicule of supposing that gender identity would matter in such a situation.”
    So, are we supposed to infer that gender identity WOULD matter to a totalitarian regime, which sounds preposterous in light of all human history, or that’s how it SHOULD work in our woke, new world, meaning that it’s only acceptable to oppress those who identify as members of the group targeted for oppression? Or I’m overanalyzing this and there’s some simple interpretation I’ve missed–maybe they’re just assuming it would somehow feel worse to be oppressed if you’re trans or non-binary than if you’re an ordinary woman. Oops, indeed!
    Note this “correction” added at the end:
    “A previous version of this article described polyamory and asexuality as mutually exclusive. We acknowledge that this is not the case and have amended the article accordingly; please get in touch about any further issues with this definition!” I would lso like to believe these woke folk are just trying to annoy people rather than what I suspect is true–that their world view is utterly incoherent.

      1. Wouldn’t it be a strange coincidence if this college professor had happened upon gendertrender two years ago and, though initially repelled by its tone, had kept reading until the sheer accumulation of evidence persuaded him to change his own stance on transgenderism?

    1. “A previous version of this article described polyamory and asexuality as mutually exclusive. We acknowledge that this is not the case and have amended the article accordingly;”
      “My lack of sexual attraction applies to multiple non-partners at one time. It is a non-monogamous lack of attraction!” LOLOLOLO
      This may be the best (worst) article ever. Go Oxford! /s

      1. “My lack of sexual attraction applies to multiple non-partners at one time. It is a non-monogamous lack of attraction!”
        That was almost word-for-word my reaction, but someone on The Oxford Student twitter thread insists they’re asexual and polyamorous because they have close, non-sexual relationships with mutliple people. I think we used to call them friends.
        Some people are referring to these sorts of student “reporters” as “the woke Stasi.”

      2. This illustrates how “identities” are expressions of narcissism. Oak is right that a word those awful ordinary people without glitterly specialness would use for “multiple non-partners” is “friends.” Except “close friend” implies affection and high regard for this other person. “Asexual Polyamory” and other identity language screams worship of self. And if you don’t validate that self-worship, you trigger that deep-seated narcissistic shame the identity is trying to compensate for. And they go after your job.

      3. Horrifyingly, the two women I know who call themselves “asexual” are both women who partnered very young with men who destroyed their self esteem and forced them (via emotional coercion and manipulation done leftist “feminist man” style) to accept an “open relationship” or “relationship anarchy,” aka polyamory.
        When the woman no longer feels attracted to the man who has humiliated and coerced her, she internalizes it and decides it’s her sexual orientation. Since these men have typically used the language of consent and the left to logic the woman into accepting his other sex partners, the woman also generally assumes that declaring herself “asexual” is an excellent way to be able to avoid his sexual advances.
        It’s my opinion that so much of the “asexuals can have sexual feelings, too!” nonsense brigade is about making sure women have nowhere to hide: pledge your allegiance to the penis, or else. Now those women don’t even have the fig leaf of their new sexual identity to avoid menacing men. I wish my friends would leave their troubled marriages, but the men involved have twisted them up into husks of the brave human beings I once knew.

  2. It’s almost like reality and oppressive forces don’t give a fuck about how you feel….
    Seriously, I’ll have to steal this meme to use next time someone tells me that I can’t be a feminist unless I prioritize men in dresses over actual females

  3. Lol indeed. I guess gender identity doesn’t matter much when most people still accept each other as male or female based on biological sex.
