Case in point!
Certain body parts don’t define male or female gender, according to Planned Parenthood’s updated guidelines on how parents should talk to their kids about sexuality.
While the old Planned Parenthood recommendations rely on science to talk to preschoolers about sexuality, the new guidelines reject former advice and expound upon gender details far beyond any normal preschooler’s comprehension.
The old guidelines advised parents to tell their kids that:
Women have breasts. Men don’t.
Boys have penises and girls have vulvas. I’m a woman — a girl who is all grown up — so I have a vulva instead of a penis. And you’re a boy, so you have a penis instead of a vulva.
The new guidelines advise parents to say:
Those are nipples. Everybody has nipples.
Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles.
Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.
It doesn’t matter too much what parts someone has
Well, I wonder if cats nipples matter? Hmmm
So, nipples are unimportant. So, if a cat identifies as a person, and hey, do not tell me a cat, which is as much a person as a person because genitals no longer matter……………
