“Hierarchies will always exist when gender is preceded by a pronoun. We do not ‘have’ a gender. Gender is collectively constructed, individually performed and reinterpreted. Gender is not ‘mine’ or ‘yours.’ It is a mirror of the social.

Gender fluidity presupposes binaries, rigidity. We must let go of the artifices.”

– Julian Vigo, via Twitter

    I am so tired of hearing about pronouns. There are sick and starving people in this world and people without clean water. I think I am going to go donate my O- blood right now and save a life in the real world. My area has less than a day’s supply.
