After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to Oxfam and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness.

#where he starved to death due to his own incompetence #i feel like that’s relevant

As it turns out… that idea might be wrong:

Gender: a visual guide.

When most people think of the gender spectrum, they think in terms of blue and pink, and maybe some purpley stuff. That model isn’t much of a spectrum and is rather a scale of femininity vs masculinity, when in reality gender is only sometimes on those terms, and is a huge, multi-dimensional concept that simply can’t fit on a single line. At this point, I would like to propose the term "gender sphere rather than “gender spectrum” to emphasise its absolute complexity.

this is good yes
rlly tired of a sliding scale between two end points being used as a rejection of a binary

Even though there are three axes, it could be missing a fourth, or a fifth.

Best to think of it all like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.
