Maybe the reason NTs think that autistic people don't have facial expressions and have a monotone voice is because they just can't read facial expressions that aren't NT lol
Personally every autistic person I have met had very expressive facial expressions and tone of voice, even ones who themselves thought they were monotone. Way more expressive than NTs, at least in my opinion.
Sexism, sexual assault, racism
Also, I think there is a very similar issue with racism. I am very white passing though, so I don't think I'll be able to bring much to the table regarding this topic, there are much better people to listen to than me. I just hope people realise how opression isn't just small statistical differences in life quality, it's a constant stream of abuse and dehumanisation.
Sexism, sexual assault
I feel like a lot of cishet white men see sexism as just a slight difference of statistics between the groups. Just being a little more likely to not get the job, a little more likely to earn less, etc.
It is so much more than that. It is the casual conversations with your female friends about their boyfriends sexually assaulting them. It is the constant messages that you are literally less human or a different species to cis men. It is the constant stream of "you are biologically inferior", and the dismissal of your concerns and emotions if you dare to complain about it. Often, these types of messages are pushed on you from birth. They're so ingrained in our society that no one even notices, even though they're so glaringly obvious.
This type of shit is traumatic. It isn't just about earning a few cents less per dollar on average.
Genital discussion, transphobia, sex, TMI descriptions
Oh also tbh I literally don't care if a cis person wants to fuck me. Why would the validity of my gender rely on whether I'm fuckable or not?
If someone has a genital preference and doesn't want to fuck, good for them! I don't care! That doesn't impact my gender in any way.
Genital discussion, transphobia, sex, TMI descriptions
Kinda tired of people being like "it's not gay to fuck a trans person!" and then list only things that have to do with hrt as reasons...
The reason it's not gay for a cis guy to fuck a trans girl *isn't* because her dick can't get hard and she doesn't jizz. It's because she's a girl. If she had a 12 inch penis and could jizz across the room, it's still not gay! Same with trans guys! It's still gay for a trans guy to fuck a cis guy, doesn't matter if he still has boobs or not or what his genitals look like.
I assume a lesbian wouldn't want to fuck a cis guy with an erectile dysfunction. However a trans girl who can get hard and jizz is still a girl and therefore it's still gay.
Can't wait for people to stop obsessing over trans people's genitals.
Sexism, gender roles, sexual assault
I knew someone who got harassed out of her physics degree. She just couldn't stand it anymore. But sure, let's pretend girls having "masculine" hobbies is accepted.
I know girls who get told they're disgusting or unhygienic for having body hair.
Trans women (and cis women) get told they look like men if they have body hair or short head hair.
Women who aren't submissive get rape threats and/or men trying to pressure them into subbing.
Gnc women need more acceptance than they have.
Sexism, gender roles
Gnc women are still not very accepted by society. It annoys me to see people compare the struggles gnc women face with struggles of gnc men, as if what gnc women go through is not significant or less bad. It's such a common idea but I just don't think it's true.
People's idea of a gnc woman is a hot cis white girl wearing a hoodie playing video games. These girls still get harassment, which often doesn't get mentioned, and they're the most accepted type.
Hairy women are not very accepted. Women who are sexually unavailable to cis white men are not accepted. Women who don't fit into societal ideals of attractiveness do not get accepted.
It continues to multiply if you're not white, if you're trans, queer, etc.
Just look at how black gnc women are treated. They are dehumanised and harassed.
Theres more gnc women than just white pretty cis gamers (and even they get a lot of harassment).
Joke, ableism but reversed
Diagnostic criteria for neurotypicality:
- Really loud for no good reason, not for stimming or anything, just knowingly loud, plays loud music in shopping centres
- Don't understand that you're supposed to actually say what you *mean*. They talk in vague terms for no real reason and that causes problems with social interaction. This is a serious problem which causes many misunderstandings and confusion.
NT: "wanna come over to my place"
Actual meaning: "would you like to have a sexual interaction with me?"
- Make eye contact when talking for some reason. Teach your child to look away if they do this.
- unable to have real interests. They tend to have trouble fixating on something specific. This is a big problem because how will they make friends if they don't have a special interest to talk about?

Sexism, butch positivity
Butch women are wonderful and deserve support and encouragement.
All types of butch women - hairy, fat, trans, and any other type not generally accepted by society.
Fuck what anyone else says. Butch women are great and deserve to live their life the way that feels best for them.
Sexism, sexual assault
Hot girls who like video games and metal tend to be acceptable to white men (and even then, not always), but as soon as they are their own person they're not as popular. Cis straight white men feel an entitlement to women's bodies and sometimes fetishise some forms of masculinity.
Masculine women are still expected to be conventionally attractive, have no body hair, and be sexually available to straight white men.
If they're the wrong type of masculine, they get called an angry hairy feminist, a bitch, ugly, etc. just because they're not appealing to men anymore.
If they're not sexually available to men, like if they're a lesbian or asexual, they get told that they "just need a good dicking". I personally know multiple people who have told me about cis white straight guys saying this to them. It's not a hypothetical situation.
Butch women are put under so much scrutiny and get so much shit if they break too many rules.
Tbh, the message I get when I see the women in action movies isn't "women have to give up their femininity to be strong."
When I see those conventionally attractive, hairless female characters in revealing outfits who are usually sexually available to the male protagonist, I get a completely different message.
The message I get is "women aren't allowed to have masculine hobbies and be strong unless they are still feminine in other ways and are still sexually available to straight white men."
Butch women positivity
Women don't have to be feminine.
Not just in a "cool hot girl who plays video games way" either.
Let women be loud, hairy, and conventionally unattractive. Women don't have to be pretty or sexually available to straight white guys in order to be "allowed" to have masculine hobbies. There's no specific way a woman should be. Let women be masculine in every way they wish to be.
Nothing a woman can do will make them any less of a woman if they identify as such.
I have many interests (art, science, growing food), I really enjoy making things.
People should work together instead of competing and hoarding wealth.
