microaggressions: On the show Toddlers & Tiaras, a mother was talking about her little girl who is a tomboy. She likes to hunt with her father and loves playing soccer. The mother concludes that the little girl is “part girl, part boy.” Apparently, liking soccer and hunting makes you a boy. If gender isn’t sex, what makes you a boy or girl except for the things that society claims...
