Take your head out of your a**

I know I already published a post for today under Feminist Friday, however this story is running around my Facebook news feed and as is usual with articles such as these, I feel the need to share. And comment.

Dear Mr. Starnes,

I will not define gender for you. I’m sure many have tried and you are simply unable to comprehend that gender is not biology and that there are people living right next to you that do not identify with your uninformed, essentialist labeling that equates biological sex with socially defined characteristics. Perhaps taking a sociology course, or better yet some classes in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies would serve to enlighten you…although I’m almost positive that entering a progressive classroom where open-minded people of all color, class, and orientation would scare the hell out of you. You choose to end your commentary with this statement:

“While we’re on the subject, what’s a gender-neutral term for morons?”

There is none needed Mr. Starnes. You have personally illustrated the concept very clearly.
