@cesese hmm, i find it at least a little questionable? representing "sex assigned at birth" as a dna helix, but still putting it on that particular part of the unicorn, is very weird for example
genetics has almost nothing to do with assigned gender whatsoever so. yeah it's weird
and i'm not sure splitting physical attraction and emotional attraction is significant outside of aspec situations, which aren't accommodated here at all anyway since both physical and emotional attraction lack a "nobody" option
it's a lot better than the other chart being passed around imho, since it doesn't try to put, say, all the genders onto a linear axis
but it's still not ideal
@cesese it's really not, nobody checks your chromosomes when you're born to figure out what gender to assign you, and what they do check isn't a remotely reliable indication of your underlying genetics
although yeah i guess you can just put all the cursors to the left for nobody, good point
@00dani What I meant for sex is usually your sex assigned at birth is related to your chromosomes (not talking about gender, I'm talking about the body not the doctors)
@00dani but I get your point and I got your viewpoint, thanks :3
@cesese yeah i know, we're talking about the same thing. assigned sex/gender actually has a lot less to do with chromosomes than is generally believed, even discounting intersex conditions and the like. the idea that there's a chromosome that Decides Your Sex is pretty much a myth
@00dani do you have any documentation on that?
When I Google it, I find that the SRY gene is the one that determines sex at birth
@00dani I mean after reading more they say it's not absolute but we don't know yet what makes some people have a sex at birth unrelated to this gene
So if we don't know, we can't say it's genes, but we also can't say it's not genes
Not sure what visual shorthand you can even apply to SAaB. Too many squidgy genetic and epigenetic mechanisms and random flukes that converge at the parts under the sticker; too many happentracks and social factors that diverge from there into the approximation you get.
@00dani @cesese Maybe the unicorn's still a useful thought-primer for inquiring folk. Guess that's all one can ask for. The axis one just feels like... wrong axes and terms? Incomplete analysis? The distinct probability that you're not gonna ever be able to boil out anything but an example to discuss and explain your -youness- with, and then discard?
Also horse mouths do not open that way, and I am very glad about this.
