Abolish "at-will" employment. It is one of the parasite class's most insidious weapons against the proletariat. If you are employed, you should have the right to demand a valid reason for termination, REGARDLESS OF HOW LONG YOU WORKED THERE. I wish more people talked about how badly this is abused in late stage capitalism.
We need to own the fact that none of these identities actually means anything more than "I am like you in some meaningful way and you are like me."
That shared experience can be extremely nuanced and varied, especially among people who are intersectionally marginalized. What happens when people start setting down 'rules' is that the most privileged people in the community get to reduce the experience down to their own and then measure everyone up to that yardstick.
hot take, 'identity' as the principle way of thinking about trans & non-binary people is a liberal trap, a desperate recapitulation of the trans & nonbinary threat to the 'innate' categoric mandate of gender.
ANY intellectually-honest account of gender must acknowledge that it is constantly being forced to grab gender by a different hand-hold, that gender shakes off its analyst like a bull shakes off its rider. if you start by talking about reproductive capacity, gestation & insemination, you are forced by infertility and intersexing and castration and celibacy and non-reproductive sexuality to begin talking instead about clothes, or division of labor, or burial rites. every 'defining' aspect of gender explodes upon too-careful observation.
I refuse to demonstrate that my womanhood is 'no threat' to the integrity of womanhood as a category by appealing to a secret truth. I am a woman Because the category of womanhood lacks integrity. you cannot threaten what never lived & cannot die.
