Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangeable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changeable.

While it is true that gender and sex are different things, and that gender is indeed a social construct, sex isn’t the Ultimate Biological Reality that transphobes make it out to be. There’s nothing intrinsically male about XY chromosomes, testosterone, body hair, muscle mass or penises… Sex, like gender, is indeed socially constructed and can be changed.

I’m so sick of seeing this post all over the damn place. Honestly this white woman looks almost exactly the same in every example and notice the thing that is constant between almost of them: her whiteness and Euro centric features.
Honestly all this shows is not some “massive variation in beauty standards” across the globe but the by and large HOMOGENOUS reality of white supremacy and the deification of white womanhood as the standard of beauty. This exists everywhere: from Africa to SE Asia; and it is just so blatantly apparent in this photo series. If you can ship your photo to dozens of different countries and the most people can do is adorn you with some “paint” or fluttery eye lashes, then I think there is something more going on than meets the eye.
Maybe this little thing called white supremacy.
Show me this same experiment with a dark skinned black woman or other WOC and watch skin tones be swapped, features be bludgeoned and more. White supremacy and the global exaltation of white womanhood as the standard of beauty in most countries is the massive elephant in the room in this “experiment” and the more I see this post circulating, the more bored I become with bland, myopic white “analyses” of beauty standards which do nothing to detangle their incredible amounts of privilege.
