Last Night I Tripped
Sinead O'Conner/Shuhada Davitt/what ever she wants to be called now..... I have always loved the music but she needs to get some real help. Not Dr. Phil.....
Sinead O'Connor declares her hatred and disgust of white people - and yet there are no yells of racism.
Of course not. Because she is a muslim now, and the idea of a muslim being racist is absurd.
Oh I agree, but they are both immutable characteristics that you can't magically change just because you 'feel' a different way.
I'm sorry but you can't magically declare that gender is an "immutable characteristic" just because you feel that way.
It sounds like you're saying "I understand everything; therefore what I don't understand does not exist."
There are two genders, male and female, XY chromosomes XX chromosomes. It's not difficult to understand.
Apparently it is because you don't. Google "how many genders are there" and you'll quickly discover that the answer is not "two" and that what constitutes "gender" is more complicated than you realize.
Everything you have stated as a fact here is incorrect. The concept of race is complex enough without equating it to an even more complex system of classification about which you seem to be willfully uninformed. Do yourself a favor and keep it simple.
Race is a relatively new concept used by anthropologists to identify the people whose resources could be stolen with justification. Contemporary anthropologists debate whether it even can be said to exist.
Oh you're going down the whole 'gender is a social construct route.' I don't pay any attention to that jibber jabber. there are two genders, period. of course you have odd natural anomaly such hermaphrodites but they are a rare statistically speaking. But let me guess you belong in the whole 'gender is a spectrum camp?' well if there are a 1001 genders and gender isa spectrum then in effect there are 6 billion different genders as v=everyone is different, right? And what do you get from that, nutters such as a trans woman wanting getting smear test even when they don't have a cervix (duh!) just for the 'feelz.'
Now 'race' is an anthropological concept? Again go to any doctor and ask them about different races suffering different types of disease, diabetes, being prone to obesity etc. Well you can tell them, 'no need to check this race for diabetes because it's all a construct!' Genius.
