wolflightning asked: What term should whites within a traditionally gender binary culture, who do not identify with either, use? I completely agree with all comments about the three spirit issue but "third gender" always struck me as culturally neutral. And I feel it's important for those outside the typical construct to identify with something and give it a name and a place in the current binary cultures to break down the 2 gender idea.

shitrichcollegekidssay:

Well, if you read what we have on this blog on ‘third gender’ as an identifying term, you know that your feelings are irrelevant. Non-binary (NB, enbys) and queer/genderqueer are available terms. Like PoC always have, white communities can also construct their own terms.

The gender binary as we know it today and its smothering universality (and the sexism/misogyny, patriarchy, and binarism that came along with it) are all a result of white culture: white supremacy.

Through colonialism and imperialism, many of our own ways have been lost, while for others the context for the option to have the very discourse you want, within their own cultures, was destroyed.

The inescapable truth is white identities will always be that much more accessible, navigable, understood, because they are working from a White gender binary. PoC do not have the privilege of discussing, determining, and understanding their genders outside of a hegemonic Western/white binary that divorced them from their traditions, cultures, and ancestors.

So in conclusion, no, ‘third gender’ is not for you or any white person, when it historically and currently is being used to enact violence against us.

People who actually believe this sort of garbage will not be difficult to overthrow.

Contemporary ‘sculpture’ vs True sculpture. On the left we have a literal and figurative trash can, a perfect analogy for the scam called ‘contemporary art’. On the right we have a transcendent, resplendent immortalized elegiacal appreciation of beauty in the form of a sculpture.

Sadly, these definitions started really gaining steam in the 80’s.  Now, today on Tumblr it’s hard to find pages without some kind of clinical disorder in descriptions.

Prescription drugs are big business. Conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder are being “discovered” because a pill exists to change behaviour—at a huge profit.
