There is most certainly a privilege to having a gender. Just ask someone who doesn’t have a gender, or who can’t pass, or who doesn’t pass. When you have a gender, or when you are perceived as having a gender, you don’t get laughed at in the street. You don’t get beat up. You know which public bathroom to use, and when you use it, people don’t stare at you or worse. You know which form to fill out. You know what clothes to wear. You have heroes and role models. You have a past.

just goes to show the state of entrenchment of the gender-sex identification in our society that even when the mother uses “she” as a pronoun and the whole gender dysphoria part, they still describe her as a “boy” solely because of her body

education, y’all

Why the fuck have they put barbaric in quotation marks. Because, according to their views, she is a boy so any teasing was totally validated? Bull shit.
