"Let’s examine a traditionally male-dominated role that is very well-respected, and well-paid, in many parts of the world—that of a doctor. In the UK, it is listed as one of the top ten lucrative careers, and the average annual income of a family doctor in the US is well into six figures. It also confers on you significant social status, and a common stereotype in Asian communities is of parents encouraging their children to become doctors.

One of my lecturers at university once presented us with this thought exercise: why are doctors so highly paid, and so well-respected? Our answers were predictable. Because they save lives, their skills are extremely important, and it takes years and years of education to become one. All sound, logical reasons. But these traits that doctors possess are universal. So why is it, she asked, that doctors in Russia are so lowly paid? Making less than £7,500 a year, it is one of the lowest paid professions in Russia, and poorly respected at that. Why is this?

The answer is crushingly, breathtakingly simple. In Russia, the majority of doctors are women. Here’s a quote from Carol Schmidt, a geriatric nurse practitioner who toured medical facilities in Moscow: “Their status and pay are more like our blue-collar workers, even though they require about the same amount of training as the American doctor… medical practice is stereotyped as a caring vocation ‘naturally suited‘ to women, [which puts it at] a second-class level in the Soviet psyche.”

What this illustrates perfectly is this—women are not devalued in the job market because women’s work is seen to have little value. It is the other way round. Women’s work is devalued in the job market because women are seen to have little value."

Uhm this is some transmisogynistic bullshit why is it here

#transmisogyny#feminist vagina worship will never not be weird and awful
Um this is wrong on so many levels. 
1. Women are told from birth that their genitals are gross and wrong and disgusting. 
2. There is a whole market aimed at women to make their vulvas/vaginas more “acceptable”. From douches to plastic surgery to make your vagina “tighter”. It’s everywhere. 
3. Being proud of one’s vagina is saying Fuck You to all of the bullshit misogyny that the world throws at women for having vaginas. 
Men get to literally worship their penis and no one says anything, but the moment that women want to be proud of her vagina? 
Oh no, that’s transmisogyny. 
Bullshit. 

Not just women have vaginas. One does not have to be a woman to have a vagina. Not all women have vaginas.
However, I fail to see how the original post is transmisogynistic. The post is literally for people who like their vagina. I’m failing to see how that is offensive especially since vagina’s are deemed gross, unsanitary, etc. in society whereas the penis is worshiped.

The penis isn’t worshipped on trans women or feminine intersex people. Or on anyone who isn’t a cis man.

There is nothing transmisogynistic about liking your vagina, kids.
If you’re proud of it, stay that way.
Not being inclusive of every sub genre of person is not the same as being hateful towards them. Stop pretending it is, please.

whatfreshhellisthis has an explanation as to why they thought the person they reblogged it from is being transmisogynistic. I was responding to the two above comments, which were cissexist and transmisogynistic. Nobody is saying that they shouldn’t be proud of their vaginas. But lots of people are conflating genitals with gender identity, which apparently isn’t a problem to you.

It’s not a problem to me because I don’t fucking care. What’s sitting in my pants is my business and I’m not required to give a single fuck about anyone’s opinion on that.
I get that language shapes out perceptions, but if you’re gonna be offended by the fact that a person has a vagina you are the weakest shit

I’m more offended by the font on your blog (which is extremely difficult to read, by the way) than people having vaginas. I have a vagina, after all. Perhaps you think someone around here is offended by people having vaginas, because the font on your blog is all but illegible and you’re just reading everyone’s responses incorrectly.
If you don’t have a problem with people conflating genitals with gender identity, it’s because you’re a cissexist fuckface, not because you think you’re genitals are nobody else’s business.

I would force a Jewish hospital to do an organ transplant if it meant saving a life.I would force a Jehovah’s Witness hospital to do a blood transfusion if it meant saving a life.I would force a Muslim hospital to house men and women together if it meant saving a life.I would force a Catholic hospital to preform an abortion if it meant saving a life.
Why? Because hospitals, places where you go when you are at your most vulnerable, cannot pick and choose what they do simply because ‘it goes against their faith.’ We jail Christian ‘Scientists’ for allowing their children to die.
There is a clear and defined line between keeping to religious tradition and saving a person from death. It’s not okay to let someone die or simply live a life of pain or insufficiency because ‘my god said no!’

Then go to a hospital that believes what you do? Who the fuck are you to force your agenda on anyone else when you pro choice arseholes are the ones who always shout “my body my rules” well if a religious group owns a hospital it’s “their hospital their rules” and you can go somewhere else for your abortions idiot.

Because typically EMTs have an obligation to take you to whichever hospital is geographically closer. And a hospital is full of doctors. Doctors who took oaths to treat patients, to give them the best quality care and help their patient. Who is the one who can tell them where it hurts or has physical presentation of what’s wrong. Also, pretty sure they swear along with everything else,”I will not permit considerations of gender, race, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, nationality, or social standing to influence my duty of care." Notice that bit? How it says they can’t let their personal preferences interfere with whatever care their patient needs? It’s almost like going into the medical field - you can’t let your own personal beliefs influence how you treat patients. Now.. what’s a hospital? A great big building with a bunch of doctors. So, what’s that? A building full of people who swore to not let anything get between treating patients and are. So, strip ‘em of their license and let them work at some building that doesn’t require such oaths. Like a McDonalds. ;)

It’s one thing to misplace your keys, your wallet, a receipt from Macy’s or your favorite pen, but Georgia’s secretary of state cannot account for approximately 40,000 voter-registration applications that, if processed, would enfranchise predominantly black and Hispanic Georgians.

According to an Al-Jazeera report, it’s a sentiment that the staffers at Third Sector Development are expressing. The nonprofit organization was on a mission to register as many black and Hispanic people in the state of Georgia as possible so that voter turnout for the upcoming midterm elections in November would be high. And they were successful at it, until they received word that about half of the applications they submitted for processing have gone missing in action.

“Over the last few months, the group submitted some 80,000 voter-registration forms to the Georgia secretary of state’s office—but as of last week, about half those new registrants, more than 40,000 Georgians, were still not listed on preliminary voter rolls. And there is no public record of those 40,000-plus applications, according to state Rep. Stacey Adams, a Democrat,” Al-Jazeera explained.

Georgia Secretary of State Brain Kemp explained that his office is not doing anything differently from how it usually processes applications. But some people aren’t buying his story, seeing as how he’s a Republican, and black and Hispanic people tend to vote for Democrats.

Georgia Republicans have been raising eyebrows for some time now with regard to early voting and voter-ID issues. One state Republican didn’t like how black and Hispanic voters had easy access to early-voting opportunities.

The “Republican whip of the state Senate complained that DeKalb County, Ga., was making it too easy for minorities to vote by allowing early voting in an area mall close to many predominantly African-American churches,” Think Progress reports.

Third Sector Development is not taking lightly the news that no one knows what became of its hard work to get people to register to vote. The group is going to court so that a judge can look into it.

“To that end, Third Sector Development announced yesterday that, after weeks of fruitless negotiations with the state, they were going to court to find out the status of the missing registrations—or, more to the point, the eligibility of more than 40,000 potential voters,” Al-Jazeera reports.

Woooow. You see how they do??

ELECTION OBSERVERS FOR THE UNITED STATES PLEASE.

This happened at my undergrad—the county courthouse “lost” over a hundred registration cards that had been collected on campus, because they didn’t like the idea of students voting in local elections. But this to orders of magnitude more frightening.

WHAT THE FUCK

… what the— is this legit!?

Yeah it is. The phrase “three standard deviations below the mean” is the common reason for removing a male fallus and assigning the baby a female gender.
If you think about it, this actually sums up, pretty well, our society.

It physically hurt my stomach to see this.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new and is still used today. ~Mod A

can someone explain this to me in Lehman’s terms pleSe? im confused and don’t know why everyone’s losing their shit because i don’t really understand the diagram

Okay, so there’s a wide variety of genitals out there. Here is a very simplistic chart of a spectrum genitals can fall on: 

Basically the clitoris and the penis are the exact same thing, very similar anatomy. Doctors will define it as a clitoris or penis depending on 1. if it has a urethra going through it and 2. it’s size. The diagram is the one they use to decide if they want to call the baby a girl or boy or intersex. Many babies are put through genital surgeries (sometimes without the parent’s knowledge or permission) to make them look more like a penis or more like a vulva which can cause many health problems as it is a surgery, or other problems related to being assigned a gender. Any kind of surgery that isn’t necessary for health should not be performed on babies because they cannot consent.

AND THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY SEX IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT!

"A researcher tells the following story about her own experience of discovering the seriousness with which young children take gender stereotypes. While interviewing 3 to 6 year olds about their career aspirations, she asked each of them what they would want to be when they grew up if they were members of the opposite sex. Their responses showed that not only did most of the children choose careers that fit the stereotypes of the other gender but also that their perceptions of the limitations imposed by gender were sometimes quite extreme. One little girl confided with a sigh that her true ambition was to fly like a bird, but she could never do it because she was not a boy! One little boy put his hands on his head, sighed deeply, and said helplessly that if he were a girl he would have to grow up and be nothing (Beuf, 1974 as cited by Lips, 2008, p. 401)."
