sexism, racism in medicine I know, right? Also, would it kill people to not assume (a) people with uteruses are all women and (b) women are pregnant by default?

sexism, racism in medicine source: have uterus, have been to doctors, am university IRB member.

sexism, racism in medicine It ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY is.

I can also imagine people are trying like hell to avoid IRB headaches.

Uyghur/Han politics; marriage as colonization

In case you feel like getting really mad about how Uyghur women are being portrayed as ideal brides, with Uyghur men "safely" locked away in concentration camps.

complaining about cis queer bullshit 

@velexiraptor women and femmes is a cursed linguistic construct that doesnt describe or elucidate anything whatsoever imo

Posts to this profile are also my employers opinions because I'm self employed, now excuse me while I leave this meeting on my skateboard and kickflip occasionally into the sunset with a bundle of opinions under my arm x


@RecursiveRabbit Doesn't Star Trek already answer that a billion times over in every episode?
