The U.S. has issued its first gender-neutral passport. The document has an "X" in the gender box, signaling the holder does not identify as either male or female. It’s the latest move in President Biden's LGBTIQ+ agenda as it gives choice to nonbinary, intersex and gender-nonconforming citizens. #lgbtq🌈 #lgbtqia+ #nonbinary #genderneutral #intersectionalfeminism

Catcalling is not a compliment. 🗣 VC: @cutecatcalls on IG.
This is a less obvious form of sexism. Kind of seems like a compliment, even though it’s rooted in men’s feelings of superiority. For e.g., it’s when men say that women are worthy of their protection or that they’re more nurturing than men. It’s restrictive and reinforces traditional gender stereotypes. #toxicmasculinity #sexism #feminism #awareness #smashthepatriarchy
Manspreading occurs when a guy sits with his legs so far apart that he takes up or encroaches on the adjacent seat. This is often an issue on public transportation. It was such a problem that the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority had to launch a campaign in 2014 to get guys to close their legs while on the subway. #feminism #toxicmasculinity #empowerwomen

Feminist Definitions - Privilege
Traditional feminism has often focused on male privilege. With the shift towards intersectionality, feminist discussions about privilege now include white privilege, cisgender privilege, able bodied privilege, heteronormative privilege and more. If asked to consider your own privilege, try not to see it as an attack or insult. Instead, take it as an opportunity to understand how you may have benefited from your identity or experiences and how not everyone has had the same advantages as you.
