just as we’ve all been subjected to gender related processes that altered our bodies (being fed differently because of our gender, being given or denied proper medical care because of our gender, using dangerous products that are on the market only because of their relationship to gender norms, etc). The isolating of only some of these processes for critique, while ignoring others, is a classic exercise in domination. To see trans body alteration as participating and furthering binary gender, to put trans people’s gender practices under a microscope while maintaining blindness to more familiar and traditional, but no less active and important gender practices of non-trans people, is exactly what the transphobic medical establishment has always done.
This is exactly what I’m talking about when I talk about “body work” with students, and emphasize to them that most of our perceptions of physical sex differences are in fact socially constructed gender differences that require a great deal of work to maintain.
The Slytherin common room is located down in the depths of Hogwarts and reaches as far out as the lake. It’s darkly light with a greenish tint and while it may not be the warmest place, it is suppose to be one of the most relaxing rooms thanks to the sound of the water surrounding them. The entrance is through the dungeons and requires a password that is changed fortnightly and then pinned to the noticeboard inside. Upon entering you will notice the vast windows that offer a unique underwater view. The giant squid is amongst the many weird and wonder creatures said to frequently swim past. The rest of the room is appropriately decorated with skulls, leather sofas, dark wooden furniture and grand tapestries that cover the walls celebrating famous Slytherins throughout history.
Ok. When I see these I can’t always tell if people are sincere, but after looking over your blog, you seem to be. So I’ll try to outline it it for you.
