Yes. That is what it is, and that is why jendah (or more correctly, jendah roles) were created. It was never about individual expression, quite the opposite, class or caste conformity, and to exploit one group of people (female). As an aside, I wish I knew who did the graphic, I would credit you! Found via Wipeout Misogyny.
The graphic was created as a ‘retaliation graphic’ (LOL) to the idiot piece of jendahqueer propaganda, lets take a look:
Yup, jendah is (supposedly) every colour of the rainbow, everyone is a speshul snowflake with their unique jendah identitahs. Facebook be on notice! A mere 50 speshul snowflake jendah identitahs just won’t cut it, there are an infinite number of jendah identitahs now, over seven billion and counting! Don’t you dare leave out the two-spirit demi-sexual jendah non-conformist otherkin!
With all these speshul snowflake jendah identitahs, class analysis, discrimination and oppression are a thing of the past! *magic*
Because you can only have the concepts of class-based discrimination and oppression (sexism, racism, classism) IF there are clear GROUPS of people, all belonging to one particular group, discriminating against another group or groups. A ‘bunch of induhviduals’ oppressing another ‘bunch of induhviduals’ just is not going to cut it for any kind of social justice platform/analysis. Sure, you can try that as a ‘theory’, but you will look like an idiot.
According to both the jendahqueers and twanz, all jendah identitahs are sacred and must be acknowledged. Well, that is, all identities except for one or two: jendah-role-rejecting female, or FAB female. Somehow or other, these particular ‘jendah identitahs’ instead of being acknowledged, end up at the bottom of the heap and invalidated. Hypocritical much?
In the words of Sheila Jeffreys (from Gender Hurts):
“The success of the destabilising campaigns against feminism and the women-only principle depends upon confusion about what ‘gender’ means.”
