people say "gender is a spectrum" but then they think of it like a point along a gradient, or like a HSL value in a color wheel

i would like to posit that if gender is, in fact, a spectrum, then individual genders are not single points or even contiguous blobs but rather are more like this

Broke: Straights swapping gender in songs to make it het
Woke: Gays swapping gender in songs to make it gay
Bespoke: Trans people swapping gender to make themselves more comfterble
Bike spoke: Swapping all gendered words to goat

This pandemic made me suddenly feel like a second class citizen as someone without a car.

Public transport is no go, with a drastically reduced schedule and warnings not to take it if not necessary.
