i thought the shapes of the male and female (sexes) pelvises were different bc one was meant for bearing children? like the one involving a vagina is a bit wider to support that extra weight, or am i wrong?

people with uteruses can have wider hips after puberty but not always. the hips will widen after childbirth. however anyone can have wider hips. if amab people have higher estrogen levels their hips will be wider. or if they take estrogen their hips will expand. 

like you could dig up some bones right now, say that the person had a penis because their hips were small and their feet are big and be completely wrong. 

like, there aren’t even two “sexes” so how can someone really tell from the bones?

as a nb person i don’t mind that they say “male” or “female” when talking about bones. it doesn’t bother me. but it bothers me that people act like there are some “absolutes” when it comes to fucking sex in bones. like no.

True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.

And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”

My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.

vulcan-ology:

that’s sex, not gender.

it’s not even sex lol

it’s actually a guess. the fact that male’s bones tend to be more “dense” or “long” is actually a product of certain selective processes that don’t exist universally. 

sex is as much of a social construct as gender

I just want everyone to know it’s not REALLY William Shatner on Twitter, Facebook, or now Tumblr.

It’s fun to pretend it’s him, but it’s not. He just hired some good social media person/people. 

At Dragon Con last year he said something along the lines of: “I’ll be honest, I have no idea what ‘Twitter’ is. I don’t know what you do on there. All I know is I have one. So I tell people what to say if I need to get some message out.”

Trust me, he doesn’t use social media. He doesn’t have the time or probably the care to tweet and FB and Google+ and post constantly. He hired someone. 

I honestly bet George Takei isn’t really posting anything either. I’m sure sometimes he does, and I’m sure he’s more involved than Mr. Shatner, but honestly, you really can’t get me to believe that’s really them.

  • Capitalists:

    Capitalism is the best system because it works by the laws of nature. Darwin! Natural selection! Only the strong survive!

  • Kropotkin:

    Actually, Darwin pointed out that in numberless animal societies, the struggle between separate individuals for the means of existence disappears, that struggle is replaced by co-operation and how that substitution results in the development of intellectual and moral faculties which secure to the species the best conditions for survival.

  • Capitalists:

    No

  • Darwin:

    Yes

Why was I never informed this book existed? Janeway and Chakotay in some sort of sassy relationship doing their taxes in engineering.

Wait, what? This is a real thing that exists? “Kate” and Chakotay in the Mirror-verse? It’s a thing? AND NOBODY TOLD ME?
