Gender is, Gender is not by snoogan2dope Gender is, Gender is not by snoogan2dope
What I felt was a more fitting version of a "Gender is...Gender is not" poster I came across online. [link] (No fullsize version available, but you can buy them. I'm cheap...so yeah. Thusly, this!)

Feel free to print, use, whatever you'd like, spread them everywhere!

NOTE: Thanks for all the faves & feedback, guys! I can't really keep up with it, but I know you're there!

This deviation is open to suggestion for change! Want something added?
Taken off? Is something offensive? I'll be glad to fix it for you - or make a more fitting version.

EDIT: Fixed "JUST male or female" AND placement of "sexual orientation" Thanks everyone!

I might start doing more things like this...seen as it's the only one of my deviations that has gotten any response.

I have recently befriended a non-binary and it's like being introduced into a whole new world! In the past couple of days they have made me think about gender like I have never thought about it before. It kind of makes me feel ashamed that for my entire life I have only thought of gender as boy and girl. It has become sooo enlightening to learn about how gender does not have to be defined by your sex. It's like my brain had been going miles a second learning about these new ways of thinking that differ from my previous thoughts! Ive started having new ideas like why exactly gender is so important anyway in the pasts and todays society, or how many less standards would be in place if gender was a style rather than something you have to be. After learning so much the past couple of days I'm very aware of how much I have to learn and explore. I can only hope I don't sound to foolish or ignorant when forming new opinions on the subject or asking others questions to form them. ^-^ I shall most definitely be sharing this with my friends. Thank you so much for contributing to my learning process!

I can't believe this is so controversial. I don't see a single trans or non-binary person in here disagreeing with you. I do see a bunch of cis-gendered people who have never once even thought about gender bringing up what they remember from 10th grade science, and being super aggressive and hateful. (And a bunch of champions politely trying to educate the silly trolls and being shot down with rudeness and willful ignorance. "Well, actually you're wrong because..." Haha, no but thanks for playing. As someone who lives and breathes gender-weirdness, I'm telling you this is on point. Haters should get their information from something other than reddit for a change and realize that their way of experiencing the world.

I never rant, but this is goddamn ridiculous. OP, you're wonderful for creating this.

False. Gender is biology not the theory of some braindead feminists.
Only a idiot would say other wise.

actually your SEX is biology..what your genitalia says. your GENDER is what you yourself are...whether it be bi gender, gender queer, transgendered ect...

Gender is linked to biology and the majority of the population are not "queer or transgender".  Like I said before the  majority doesn't have to accommodate itself for the minority.

your right, it does not. but you'd be surprised. 1 our of 100 births are usually transgendered or not on the male or female spectrum in some way. plus, its said almost every child between the ages of 13-15 have had transgendered tendincy's in their life. 

and lastly. its just the nice thing to do vuv no need for people to be a dick..

1 of 100 people are transgender, So the 99 other people who are not should be indoctrinate that their gender is a social construct? This is not democracy. I say that most teenager are using the trans identity to have attention. It's like the emo trend. You know what I used to believe that I was a boy because I was a tomboy when I was a child. It lasted 12 years, so until puberty I identified myself as a boy but when I hit puberty, I became more feminine. So its biology

your just being a prick vwv the world is not being forced too... but its just the nice thing to do. how would you like it if i always just referred to you as a he? even if your 100% girl. if i called you a man you would probably not like it. so dont call trans people by the wrong gender. vwv
