Parents,

You have taught your children how to count, you have taught them the alphabet, and you have taught them how to recognize shapes, but have you taught them the important life skill of Greeble Recognition?

Sure, they might never recognize your face ever again, but such selfish worries should not stop the way of progress.

Courses on basic and advanced Greeble Recognition have started to be taught in schools all across the world, for our only purpose in life is to serve the all mighty Greebles.

ALL HAIL THE PURPLE ONES!

@schratze "transporter mistake is bad" factoid is actualy wrong. transporter accident geordi who lives in an enterprise is an outlier adn should not have been counted

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as sex, is in fact, gender/sex, or as I've recently taken to calling it, gender plus sex. Sex is not a discrete biological trait unto itself, but rather another component of a fully functioning gender system in which aspects of social roles, personal identity, and yes, metabolism and anatomy have been discursively constructed as "sexed". Many members of society reify some form of the gender binary every day, without realizing it.

In things I didn’t expect to learn today: apparently gender markers on passports are a result of people in the 60s and 70s fucking with gender norms and presentation so much, that the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) requested that a gender marker was added to passports because:

the rise in the early 1970s of unisex attire and hairstyles, photographs had become a less reliable means for ascertaining a traveler’s sex.

Also, “fun” tidbit: there is no trace left in the archives of why they needed to know the sex of people in the first place…

(other “fun” fact: you can thank Napoléon Bonaparte for the gender marker on birth certificates apparently :/)
