Transgender Sexism
This will be a short piece on the strange kind of sexism experienced by Doctor Ben Barres, a transgender man. When he was born in 1954 his gneder assignment was female. At that time there were only two to choose from and the doctors had to give you one or the other. Sometimes there was "minor" surgery to make you fit your assignment. He grew up as a "tomboy."

@kavbojka shared a really good read on the racism/sexism going on over at Square Space. Its 100% worth a read and furious anger pacing in your living room.

White libs and pseudo snowgressives really gotta work on your policing of communities of color and unlearn these colonial value systems🙄.

After reading stories like I decided to handle the female characters in #GliderInk carefully.

First, they are people. They have goals and wants of their own. That's important knowing how dangerous #sexism is in a lot of hackerspaces.

I want them to be varied as well.

#SuzanneTheInventor wants to be considered a person first and doesn't have time for romantic relationships. She wants to be an engineer and be able to adjust the world to her needs.
