it's like everyone sees me as a woman, the only difference being that they have to be careful with what they refer to me as

Congratulations, now you understand why people think nonbinary people are insufferable. Because that's exactly the case. You're a woman that everyone has to walk on eggshells around. Sorry you're not happy that your "get out of the binary free" card doesn't actually work that way.

we are not all the same, and we're not all different.

Yeah, almost like you're human beings! Do these people really think that "women" and "men" are monoliths and that everyone that is a woman is exactly the same? How is this happening? How are people so stupid?

We could've all realized that you can act, dress, and have certain interests while still being a man or woman. That a woman with short hair is still a woman, and a man who enjoys knitting is still a man. Because gender roles and stereotypes are arbitrary, restrictive, meaningless, and change over time, culture, and person to person. We could have made more room for both sexes to be themselves without denying biology or erasing gays and lesbians. But nooooo, the they/thems had to turn it into a whole thing, setting us all back 50 years.

It's one of those moments of insight they have, but they can't accept the insight for what it is.

This is an assault on reality. Sexual dimorphism was the first pattern all civilizations noticed and named in their creation stories. Female and male sex differences are the bedrock of culture. And yet these people are somehow WINNING??? The West is digging our own grave :(

What a hypocrite. They are putting people into categories simply by addressing the "binaries" as a separate group that they consciously treat differently for no reason. Unsurprisingly, it also created gasp a Binary, which didn't even(and in reality still doesn't) exist before they created the fake non-binary category to make themselves feel special.

Lol I love part when she says something like "as if people saw me as a woman but with a different label", yes that's how it is. Always found the AMAB and AFAB language funny. It's just a new careful way of saying who is a woman and who is a man. Yes, I see "AFAB non-binary" to be a woman, who thinks she's not like the other girls so she goes by they/them because the rest of women like her aren't as cool like her. In worse cases I see a symptom of an untreated personality disorder like borderline.

when it was gender, NB could be seen as a thing, a dumb thing, but I can understand you think not associating with strict male or female stereotypes would make you something else.

But now they say they are not male or female, like how are you not a sex? how do you not identify with being female or male?
