I like how sweden just decided one day that gender is fucking bullshit so they got a gender neutral pronoun and stopped separating boy clothes and girl clothes and have pictures of spiderman pushing a baby stroller in a toy magazine why isn’t every country like sweden
you push that stroller sassy spiderman!
you fight those bad guys girlfriend!
you style that hair lil’ dude!
You had me at Spider-Man pushing a stroller.
a girl with a gun. is that really so weird in the US? I mean, sure, on average, I get it. guys are the gun people. ok, nvrmind, I concede that one.
so—- but the boy styling the hair. ok, so in the US, if a guy styles hair, or at least cuts it, as a profession he is usually a barber. now, a straight guy could work in a salon, but it’s rare. I think, if he’s good at it, most people don’t care.
but in the US, gay men styling hair is like, so cliche that idk, vidal sassoon prob has his name on a line of hair products. idk, I don’t follow this shit closely or whatever.
so but here’s my question- gender norms. cool, let’s talk about, let’s talk about it on tumblr. but how does the intersection of gender norms & society’s expectations of homosexuals & heterosexuals work?
and what of bisexuals? are people accepting of bisexuals over a certain age (say, 25)? I’m not even gonna address related issues around transgendered individuals right now. but I do wanna ask the question about self-identified queer persons. if you put ‘lgbtq’ into wikipedia it redirects to ‘lgbt’.
so, if gender is to be blown away, is the umbrella term ‘queer’ irrelevant? if you approach this from, say the POV of a political strategist who is serious about getting votes for a US senator or congressperson in 2014 or a president in 2016, you suddenly realize most people aren’t even aware of these political movements. I guess I can drop it right there.
