Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Unisex Burkha Is the Answer!

 

Few people have noticed but there is an inevitable building crisis in gender identity and expression. For you hateful trogs who don’t know these things, “gender identity” is how you feel on the inside about who you are and “gender expression” is the net (largely intended) effect you have on the perceptions of other with respect to how you express that identity. They are not the same thing.

The whole point of the revolution in gender identity is to free us from the tyranny and oh-so-five-minutes ago shackles of prescribed sexual roles.

But there is a problem. Consider, for example, a woman who just happens to have male genitalia and the musculature and build of one who reached puberty under the influence of testosterone. She will in all likelihood feel a strong need to present herself in skirts, lipstick and other sartorial affects consonant with her true identity in the same way that a man who happens to have only female genitalia will opt for traditional male garb.

Don’t you see the immediate problem? By taking on narrowly constrained gender expressions (even in service to true sexual identity), we are reinforcing gender stereotypes and putting ourselves back in the cages that the patriarchy built for us. By affirming that there are actually “male” and “female” modes of expression, we have lost the battle for true sexual freedom.

The only way to true freedom is to eliminate the prescribed affects that enslave us and that is why I predict that the next development in the gender revolution will be the Unisex Burkha or its functional equivalent. Only when we are all compelled to dress in a non-sexual manner than conceals distracting accidents of irrelevant biological development, that prevents superficial judgments and incorrect perceptions and that relieves the pressure to conform to expected modes of gender expression can we be truly free.

Prize for the correct guess as to which US university will be the first to mandate its use.

For all 57 Genders!

    Now I am really worried. Should the people over on the New Left see your conceptual design of how to rid all human beings of the annoying gender presentations forced on us currently, the uni sex Burkhas will become ubiquitous.

    Of course never having to see Nancy Pelosi’s face again would be one point in its favor. Or maybe even two.

    They already have the male romper….. and I use the word “male” in the strictest biological terms.

    I don’t know if this will be any more acceptable

    It’s disturbing that I could see this really happening as those who claim “sex is irrelevant” start to understand how useful this could be for implementing their desired outcome. 

    My only consolation is that I’m convinced that the proponents of “sex is irrelevant” understand that their stated position is nonsense. They’re just spouting the pronouncement only to gain power over others.

    Old, I am so glad you have finally joined the fully woke. What a wonderful idea! Not only does it obliterate all distinctions of gender but all those of handsomeness and/or beauty, thereby putting all of us in the fat and ugly columns finally in equal harmony of those better looking. A true Socialist Equality Nirvana. Well done, er ///Sir? It.

    You replied on a weekday so it should have been “Ms”. I identify as a lesbian of color named Louise on most weekdays and as a 6’2″ 26-year-old muscled cis-hetero lifeguard named Raoul on weekends and holidays. I am delusion-fluid.

    Dunno. Have to ask Raoul on Saturday. Probably look for a bar that permits Speedo attire and won’t mind if I punch out those who deny that Mitch Buchanan was the greatest lifeguard ever. But it really mostly depends on what medication Dr. Goldman issues on Fridays.

    Oh dear. We cannot allow this to be promoted to the main feed. The woke crowd might see it and think it is the next best thing for them to adopt.

    I was frightened at this prospect for a moment. It’s completely consistent with sex-is-a-social construct ideology. Then I realized that’s exactly why it will never happen. Whew.

    It wasn’t that long ago that guys used to joke about being male lesbians. The Left apparently took that as a dare.

    Rush used to joke about being a lesbian trapped in a man’s body.

    You are operating under the “reality will ultimately prevail” myth which is patriarchal doggerel. Like truth itself, reality is what we say it is. And it does not appear you are part of the “we” that does the saying.

    My relief comes entirely from the reality that the left is nothing if not inconsistent.

    Of course I knew that, I learned it in my employer’s annual mandatory “Workplace Harassment Awareness” training. Isn’t that what modern HR departments are for?
