gender is a scam invented by bathroom companies in the 1960's in order to sell more bathrooms
I'd believe this tbh
@picklemaddierix double the bathrooms holy shit. And now we have even more genders and they’re not even capitalizing on that shit. Weeeeeeeeeaaaaaaak
@nosuchbinary yeah they're missing out on that big bathrooom 💲
@picklemaddierix can we call the lobby together this afternoon, you think? We should move on this soon if we’re going to recoup any losses
@picklemaddierix They had to make up all the sales they lost due to the end of segregation somehow.
Huge, if true.
@picklemaddierix i am cracking up rn at the idea of "bathroom companies" that are into promoting the idea of like, pooping in a room. but we do have plumbing fixture companies which are like... related?
@picklemaddierix ugh ofc Big Bathroom is involved in peddling that bs
Typical Big Bathroom trying to hold the people back
@totallygeeky they;re always up to their old tricks
@picklemaddierix damn, it's true
@picklemaddierix Big Bathroom has to pay
@picklemaddierix Clever, but no. The scam was around long before then, believe me.
@Altivo the 1950's?
@picklemaddierix I was born in 1949 so yes, I can assure you that I was personally oppressed by this concept as early as 1954. However, one need only look at the Old Testament or classical Greek literature to see that the false notions of binary gender are much older.
@picklemaddierix Read about the blind philosopher/prophet Teresias, for instance, and compare that to the rather more fluid gender ideas of some native American cultures. 😉
@picklemaddierix This almost makes sense... But if there is some evidence for this I'd love to see it.
@picklemaddierix omg this thread is great. Also can we just get a list of bathroom supply companies phone numbers posted in here so we all call them and tell them we have a great idea to *increase their profits 10 fold* just support *all genders* = infinite money for the bathroom industry.
@picklemaddierix Can confirm, they tried to push gender on me, but I'm not having any.
@picklemaddierix i will never buy two tubs again
