Gender isn't a pure social construct. If you remember the case of Dr. Money he believed the same thing. He told parents of a baby with a botched circumcision to amputate the penis and raise him as a girl since it is a social construct it wil not matter. Basically the baby grew up always jealous of her brother for being a boy and felt like a boy. You can google it for more in depth description but there has a to be a bio component along with the socialization.

He was the victim of a genital mutilation and was really mentally fucked because of his parents and the medical industry. Also David Reimer said that Dr. Money forced him and his brother to rehearse sexual acts involving “thrusting movements”, with David playing the bottom role. Reimer said that, as a child, he had to get “down on all fours” with his brother, Brian Reimer, “up behind his butt" with "his crotch against" his "buttocks".Reimer said that Dr. Money forced David, in another sexual position, to have his “legs spread" with Brian on top. Reimer said that Dr. Money also forced the children to take their “clothes off” and engage in “genital inspections”. On at “least one occasion”, Reimer said that Dr. Money took a photograph of the two children doing these activities.Dr. Money’s rationale for these various treatments was his belief that “childhood ‘sexual rehearsal play’” was important for a “healthy adult gender identity”.

So John Money was a pedophillic quack and David took his life because of what the medical industry did to him. 


Also David urinated through a hole in his abdomen, so I would hardly qualify that as living as a woman. He knew there was something wrong with him. He wasn’t even treated like a fucking human-being by the medical industry, let alone the very low bar that females get. 

I definitely wasn’t DEFENDING the work of a pedophile (as another reblog said) if anything I am saying his stance that gender is purely social is incorrect. David did end up retransitioning to male and I think it is important despite all else that he didn’t identify as female even though he was raised that way.



Man, some of you guys in the BB fandom are just cruel. ‘Course, you’re all allowed to have different opinions. But always trying to find something to put on blast regarding one of the houseguest is getting tiresome.

Some of you seem to forget this is a game and an “entertainment”. If you’re not entertained and complain all the damn time about every little thing, stop watching the damn show and spare us your disagreeable comments.



These are the two things I kept, from a collection spanning almost a decade.

I was wearing the mask, and carrying this crop, the night I walked out of a fet event with a girl so deep in subdrop I had to get her address from her ID.
A man I’d respected, with years of practice under his belt, had deigned to “train” her to be a painslut.

When she couldn’t speak, and her eyes went glassy, and she started to shake, I cut in.
He became furious, livid that I was interrupting his scene, his training. She wanted this, he said. She had asked for it.

So I asked her what she wanted, leaning in close so he couldn’t hear her answer.

She whispered, “I want to go home”, and so I undid the ropes and did just that. I drove her home, and sat with her, a total stranger I’d never met.

I made her tea, tucked her in bed, calmed her down. I don’t remember if she cried. I don’t even remember if I asked her name. I stayed until she’d dropped into a shivery and fitful sleep, left two Advil and a water by her bed, and locked the door after me.

I don’t remember how I got home. I probably shouldn’t have been driving. I remember her eyes, wide and scared and the pupils blown huge. I don’t remember much else, but I remember her eyes behind her cheap mask.

I never went back to another event, and I cut all ties with a community I’d been a proud advocate of.

I couldn’t remember much, but I was crystal clear on two facts:

I was the only one who tried to help.


I couldn’t be a part of a community like that.

is there some kind of psychology behind that? (no, you can't post anything without questions about the background)

You are referring to this post:

Well, I do know that people do tend to internalize the beliefs of others. 

For example, there was experiment where students were given a card describing their substitute professor.

One half got a card saying “He is … people say he’s a bit COLD…”

And the other half “He is … people say he’s a bit WARM…”

Just based on that one word, the students had drastic opinions over him. The “cold” side of the classroom basically said he sucks, and that they would never want to have him as an actual professor, while the “warm” side said he was great and friendly. 

While this phenomenon is true it isn’t what applies here. The correct effect would be the mere exposure effect. That is the more you are exposed to something the more you like it.
