please reblog the fuck out of this
What in the actual fuck.
WHAT THE FUCK
… what the— is this legit!?
Yeah it is. The phrase “three standard deviations below the mean” is the common reason for removing a male fallus and assigning the baby a female gender.
If you think about it, this actually sums up, pretty well, our society.
It physically hurt my stomach to see this.
Same >_< I’ve reblogged this before but it needs more publicity so I’m doing it again.
Unfortunately, this is nothing new and is still used today. ~Mod A
can someone explain this to me in Lehman’s terms pleSe? im confused and don’t know why everyone’s losing their shit because i don’t really understand the diagram
Okay, so there’s a wide variety of genitals out there. Here is a very simplistic chart of a spectrum genitals can fall on:
Basically the clitoris and the penis are the exact same thing, very similar anatomy. Doctors will define it as a clitoris or penis depending on 1. if it has a urethra going through it and 2. it’s size. The diagram is the one they use to decide if they want to call the baby a girl or boy or intersex. Many babies are put through genital surgeries (sometimes without the parent’s knowledge or permission) to make them look more like a penis or more like a vulva which can cause many health problems as it is a surgery, or other problems related to being assigned a gender. Any kind of surgery that isn’t necessary for health should not be performed on babies because they cannot consent.
AND THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY SEX IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT!
NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER STOP FUCKING REBLOGGING THIS.
My piercer is having a special and the jewelry I ordered is in and I desperately need to clean my room and also I’m out of food but I just can’t give a fuck to do anything so I’m probably gonna get Sonic for dinner and try again tomorrow
