…and don’t you experience it when you look in the mirror?
(With the greatest respect)
Biological sex is immutable.
To recap :
1. What is male gaze – explain it to me in simple English, in a nutshell.
2. You are male. Your gender is female, I’m not disputing that. But your biological sex is male.
Ps – no offense intended. I just break taboos, and, as one of the world’s leading skeptics, I feel it is incumbent upon me to educate people who are wrong.
So, in other words, Gia Milanovic (BC’s wife) is spot on.
Now, this area might be super taboo for some cliques but yolo. (And by ‘yolo’, I mean precise language is necessary for science.)
I am speaking truth. Am I a non TERF. I’m not even a F. I see lots of women being dehumanised with that description. And some of them aren’t even TERFs – they become TERFs "by association".
I get that some terfs really are quite possibly awful, but guilt-by-association is a dangerous thing. It won’t help anyone, least of all you. (Beyond a very short term buzz).
Yo I'd be tight if I was a woman in crossfit & some strong ass trans just came through shutting it down. I'd be tight lol.—

You’re still male. Biological sex is immutable.
In fact, TMZ Sports obtained a letter from CrossFit to Chloie in which the CF pulled no punches — “We have simply ruled that based upon [Chloie] being born as a male, she will need to compete in the Men’s Division.”
CF argues … “The fundamental, ineluctable fact is that a male competitor who has a sex reassignment procedure still has a genetic makeup that confers a physical and physiological advantage over women.”
But in the letter, CF gets aggressive — saying, “Our decision has nothing to do with ‘ignorance’ or being bigots — it has to do with a very real understanding of the human genome, of fundamental biology, that you are either intentionally ignoring or missed in high school.“
Chloie says CF is full of crap — claiming the company is violating her civil rights by not letting her compete as a woman … and she wants at least $2.5 million to make things right.
For its part, CrossFit says transgendered athletes will be “welcomed with open arms in this community, but what we will not waver from is our commitment to ensure the fairness of the competition.“
Who ever wrote that letter from CrossFit blasting that tranny who wants to compete with women deserves an award…great take down—

Tranny suing a crossfit competition for 2.5 mill for not letting "her" compete as a female. Ridiculous lawsuit, born a man. It's cheating.—

Breathtakingly powerful, fighting talk from @glosswitch – Sex positive feminism is doing the patriarchy's work for it newstatesman.com/lifestyle/2014…—

Supposed "sex-positive feminism" is little more than libertarianism. Admit it. Then stop co-opting our movement.—

They have a point!
Very interesting debate.
(Side note: little disappointing that boodle oops, having once denounced ‘da patriachy’, is using the term again).
