Callin shit out in class doesn't normally go this well...

Instructor:
...and that's what mommies do, they have babies. Men don't do that.
Me:
some men do.
Instructor:
well, in terms of the actual birth.
Me:
yeah, some men give birth.
Classmate:
but that man who had a baby was originally a woman.
Me:
no, he was born with a vulva. A vulva doesn't make someone a woman.
Instructor:
-continues lecturing using "people with a vulva" instead of women.
Coulda been a lot worse...

Anonymous asked: just wanted to let you know that princex is a term made for and by POC! it's not for white folks to use

Thank you for letting me know! I had no idea. I removed it and won’t be using it anymore.

An old friend of mine (who is a poc, tho didn’t mention anything about the term being for and by) suggested it as a gn term they could use for me & that I could use for myself.

I should’ve looked into it more to be sure I wasn’t being appropriative. Now that I’m actually looking, I see that the information is readily here. It was my bad for not looking in the first place.

Thank you for letting me know. I really appreciate it.
