This title is a Dutch non-existing term to describe exactly nothing.
(B.t.w., I'm something genderqueer-ish and bisexual with a soft spot for everything androgynous, I like cosplay, but mostly the type that has no meaning (maybe I'll post some sometime)
What’s difficult is that our genders are very multifaceted and not binary at all but how our society divvies out male privilege and misogyny is usually really binary in terms of privilege/oppression (as far as i can tell) - because that’s how our society works - and i think denying that often leads to harm- at least that’s how it seems to me. Gender fluidity can make it more complicated because even i can have brief or limited access to male privilege in some situations but because i identify as feminine so often, it doesn’t really give me access to the male social category on a consistent basis, but to be fair i should probably check it more/explore it more
in my experience cafab nb people tend to either identify more with men and/or the male experience or with women as a social group - and usually have male privilege OR not (and experience misogyny if not). but gender fluidity can make the conversation more nuanced- i feel like that’s the only time it gets more nuanced though because a more fixed identity is always going to be codified by society as male or female, privileged or lesser… but even when one’s gender is fluid i do think one tends to identify more with men or women or again, is going to probably be organized by society as privileged or lesser
This is the problem I have when talking about women’s issues. Like, on one hand I’m pretty clealry “female socialised”, if you will, in the sense that my sense of self-identity and social role is very much influences by society’s expectations of women rather than of men. On the other hand, I’m an arms’ length away from identifying fully as a woman (I guess “trans demigirl” might be an apt description of my relationship with gender) and depending on the situation society may treat me as a man, a trans woman, or simply an undefined queer Other. So I’m always left with the question of, considering the multifaceted nature of my experience, do I really have the right to talk about feminism? Am I an outside observer and occasional collateral damage of misogyny and transmisogyny, or a deliberate target of it?
The interaction of nonbinary identity with social dynamics is fluid and complicated and I’m not sure if there’s even answers to these questions.
I’ve seen people argue that all dmab trans people experience trans misogyny and don’t have real access to male privilege just due to how powerful transmisogyny is in our culture and how narrow the wiggle room is in our culture for “proper” camab gender expression/gender and that any deviation from that is going to take you out of the male privileged category. (and i’ve also been told that being treated as a man is violently threatening to dmab trans people in a way that being treated as a woman is not toward cafab trans people). But I’m cafab and this is just what I’ve been told by some people. It’s possible there’s more nuance there than I’m aware of.

Just for anyone who doesn’t know why this is bad: Tumblr In Action exists to make fun of anyone on Tumblr who believes in equality, basically.
I don’t like this culture of singling out random individuals and laughing at them behind their backs in the first place, but its even more sickening that they’re shaming people for (according to them) being too passionate about stopping racism, not worrying about “real problems”, or for saying the patriarchy exists when REALLY its apparantly women who’re oppressing men by not paying for dates, etc etc…
Worth also noting, that despite the subreddit’s official policy of showcasing blog entries and discouraging interaction, it’s also very common taht once a post is featured on TIA, anonymous hate, as well as reblogs by virulent anti-SJ, as well as openly bigoted blogs tend to skyrocket.
TumblrInAction is basically fox news reports on tumblr social justice: they are bent on distorting what happens and whipping up an angry/offended frenzy among a privileged slice of the world- we have a long, long history : ) if you google my username they’re like the second result
it’s funny how predictable they are though. i made a particular post i KNEW they were going to feature - i even made another post saying inb4 reddit says - but there you go
