Jill Stanek had to translate* so that readers could better understand Jack, a woman who says (s)he is a “femme non-binary person”, and who feels left out of the leftie narrative with respect to women’s choice, access, health. Yep, the war on women is passing Jack by.
Jack’s story was used to illustrate a persistent theme Jill Stanek has been elucidating. The left is by no means a unified group of people, all satisfied with their general social and political direction. There is quite a bit of dissent in the ranks.
Pharmer’s issue: People often want to put a label on themselves and fit into a special little group. And they want recognition of that special little group.
There are more labels for sexual identity than any person could memorize (and they change all the time).
Sex expression and performance has always been a sort of continuous gradient, made more plastic and variable by the endocrine disruptors pushed by the medical and other industries. Impinging on the gradient is the fact that some people will always want to step outside of occupational roles dominated by one sex or the other.
Why are people so fond if being pigeonholed? It’s as though they encourage conflict and victimization in order to fill up the time that they spend NOT building, creating, producing and uplifting.
