any of the episodes with Jazz give me second hand embarrassment akin to that of watching katara’s portrayal in the ember island players
Soppy sketch for Elizabethhhh because she deserves it. <3
andyeah just wanted to post this preview since I’m being kicked off the computer and I have no idea when I’ll get to finish. ;;
There’s nothing wrong with identifying as cisgender - the problem is treating cis female and cis male as normal and treating anything else as abnormal.
The only reason a child’s assigned sex organs should be announced at birth is so the parents can take care of the child properly - biologically female sex organs and biologically male sex organs have different physiology (estrogen or testosterone) and anatomy. Biologically female bodies go through different physiological experiences than biologically male bodies. That should be the only reason sex is announced at birth - so the parents can plan accordingly for the kid’s future.
However, what’s happened with cisnormativity is that uninformed and bigoted people now believe that female and male are the only gender options in the world, and have created gender roles for each respective gender to mold to. By doing this, not only have they created some major sexism problems, but when someone discovers that they don’t fit those gender molds, they think of themselves as abnormal, wrong, and a freak.
Which is fucked up. There are far more than two genders/sexes in the world and creating gender roles and advocating for cisnormativity and not telling children that, “hey, did you know that if you don’t feel like a girl or a boy, that’s okay?” is why trans and nonbinary people shit so much on cisgendered people who ask, “why do you hate cis people so much? What’s wrong with being cis?”
Parents shouldn’t be assigning gender roles to infants who can’t even sit up without help, let alone grasp the concept of sex and gender.
I literally just found links to all the Through the Wormhole episodes
