In Purbalingga, central Java, numerous small workshops represent the first step in a global supply chain. Almost all workers are women, all of them scraping a living by measuring and cutting artificial hair to the requisite size for false eyelashes, and then knitting them onto a thin plastic thread. The job requires intense concentration, often leaving workers with sore eyes and backs. Their financial remuneration for such monotonous work is about $0.04 per pair, sometimes lower. By the time the product reaches Western consumers, the price they pay has often reached $10 a pair – a mark-up of 2,400%.

I wonder where people with klinefelter syndrome or xxy syndrome go to use the facilities… This is at a SCIENCE center. For the love of God… If I don’t wanna make a case against them for being blatantly transphobic, I can at least make a case against them for not including EVERYONE. WTAF?

Things Not To Do: use intersex people are an “easy out” for challenging bigotry that affects trans people AND intersex people BECAUSE SCIENCE so PEOPLE WILL LISTEN MORE.Challenge the bigotry full stop. Intersex people are not there to be the go-to BUT LOOK ~HARD SCIENCE~ option for challenging chromosome essentialism. If you’re doing that, you’re not only exploiting intersex people, you’re also being hella cissexist by implying that intersex people’s realities are more ‘real’ and ‘provable’ than (dyadic) trans people’s sexes.Don’t do this.And shame, shame, SHAME on that science centre. Name and shame, someone?

Wow *claps*
