This is for all you stupid fuckers who think that gender is a spectrum and that if you aren’t 100% indentifying with one gender then you become a special snowflake called “genderqueer”.
These are my notes I’m study for my psychology final exam tomorrow. You see, early on (pre-1970) researchers thought that gender was a spectrum. Wow tumblr you are a whole 40 years late on that one. But you see, using the methods and tools of science, it was discovered that gender was two separate dimensions. Just ideas in our brain that we connect to other ideas, such as woman means weak and nonassertive. If you are a strong and assertive woman, you aren’t genderqueer, agender, bigender, or whatever stupid term you want to call yourself. It doesn’t work that way.
Now don’t any of you fuckers talk to me about this until you’ve at least read some basic scientific research on the matter.
(ps: this doesn’t dismiss trans people who choose to go completely as the other gender, just you fuckers who aren’t trans but want to be special because you aren’t 100% of a gender stereotype).
NGC 4755: A Jewel Box of Stars
The great variety of star colors in this open cluster underlies its name: The Jewel Box. One of the bright central stars is a red supergiant, in contrast to the many blue stars that surround it. The cluster, also known as Kappa Crucis contains just over 100 stars, and is about 10 million years old. Open clusters are younger, contain few stars, and contain a much higher fraction of blue stars than do globular clusters. This Jewel Box lies about 6,400 light-years away, so the light that we see today was emitted from the cluster before even the Great Pyramids in Egypt were built. The Jewel Box, pictured above, spans about 20 light-years, and can be seen with binoculars towards the southern constellation of the cross (Crux).
