to expand on this: when i say 'fluid', i mean not one or the other and not the same across time, but varying; and when i say 'fractal', i mean gender always manifests in intersection w/ every other social category: upper-class gender manifests differently from working-class, black from white, straight from gay, and so on. the idea of two people sharing a gender can only be an abstraction — imposed on us by the patriarchy or adopted in pursuit of revolution, but ultimately to be dispensed with

i don't believe in any sort of a structured classification system for gender — not a spectrum, not a compass, not a tesseract. the impulse to try to provide a formal foundation to identity is understandable, but, i argue, ultimately just an internalised reflex of the binary straitjacket. gender is fundamentally fluid and fractal; trying to fit it into a scheme is a mistake which can only serve to reify the very systems of oppression we're trying to undo

@jookia Anti-freedom-zero is cosmetic guilt-washing. People feel helpless to actually do anything about Bad Stuff, so instead they take measures to distance themselves from bad stuff along some notion of complicity.
