I like how Obama can just casually say to the press (verbatim), “We tortured some folks,” but we’re still cool with him because he knows what gifs are. It’s really interesting.

i can’t believe “we tortured some folks” is a real phrase that came out of a…

Q

Anonymous asked:

Actually - SEX is defined as biological, as it refers to the reproductive organs that somebody was born with. GENDER refers to how a person identifies. So technically, biological sex is not a social construct because it is more geared towards medical significance. Assuming that they are the same or that one gender requires certain traits is a social construct.

Anon 2: The ‘Sex’ in ‘Biological Sex’ is not a social construct. It refers to the fact that we are either XX or XY and were born with genitalia that comes from that chromosome pairing. How we *identify/label* that sex, be it masculine/male or feminine/female, is the social construct because the identification/label is often used interchangeably with gender. This is why medical institutions prefer to know your Biological Sex instead of your Gender. XX and XY have different general health risks.

FYSE: 

Sex is determined by doctors based on your genitals. If you have something close enough to what they believe males should have you’re called a male. If you have something close enough to what they believe females should have you’re called a female. Because genitals are diverse

not all genitals are what we stereotypically think of male or female. Some people have medical issues or have medical exams that reveal that their chromosomes, hormones, or internal sex organs don’t match what is usually thought of as male or female.

We made up these categories and thought that male always equals penis, testicles, testosterone, XY and female always equals vagina, vulva, uterus, ovaries, clitoris, estrogen, XX but that’s not true. People have a combination of genitals, sex organs, chromosomes and hormones and we need multiple tests to figure out who exactly has what. Because most people don’t get these tests done unless something medically happens that they need the test done we don’t know how many people have these variances. It is a social construct that says that people born with penises are men and people born with vulvas and vaginas are women. Although it’s true that many people born with penises many times have specific medical needs that differ from people born with vaginas and vice versa it’s not necessary for medical reasons. When you see a doctor they ask you many different questions including medical history. Designated sex alone is not enough to know any and all medical problems that could occur. In fact the assumption that all those born with certain genitals have certain medical needs can cause many health problems because of hormonal differences and chromosomal differences.

So yeah no, sex is a social construct too.

In case you don’t already know a 3D audio is an audio that feels like it’s happening RIGHT in front of you.

That’s right, listeners can actually FEEL the sounds and it’s just something you need to experience.

I have posted a few and the feedback was intense. 

You must wear headphones! Make sure the right headphone is in the right ear and the left is in the left. 

Warning: Not recommended for those with anxiety, some of these audios contain violent content

Refurb 3DS deals at Nintendo ⊟

I just rediscovered (via Bboy AJ) that if you want a cheap 3DS, you can order one from Nintendo. Refurbished 3DS XLs are just $135 ($150 for Yoshi/Mario Bros. LE’s); in addition, you can get a Pearl Pink 3DS for $95 or a red 2DS for $90.

I originally started this post “just a heads up” then I went back to the NeoGAF thread and of course Bboy AJ started his post exactly the same way. Man I am the worst.
