deconstruction of od&d ability scores and their effects

Surprise! You get some proper punctuation because I originally wrote this in a Word document.

the helicopter story on sex, gender, and dysphoria

woe to you who strive with your Maker, earthen vessels with the potter! does the clay say to the one who fashions it, "what are you making?" or "your work has no handles!" woe to anyone who says to a father, "what are you begetting?"   or to a woman, "with what are you in labor?"   isaiah 45:9-10 i don't really want to talk about the discourse that led to me seeking out this work. what happened to the author, isabel fall, shows a lack of comprehension and empathy on the part of self-identified 'allies' who chased a trans woman off the internet because she produced something alien to them. with that being said, fall wrote something thoughtful and horrifying. i think it's worth to draw out the implications of this piece to better understand how it contributes to our knowledge (or lack thereof) of gender.
