Lily D’ Penha from the world of our family … we all wish you a very happy birthday … this day and the days to come to bring you utmost happiness and peace and what ever is of worry to you, may it delete itself forever .. love
A surge of affection and well being despite the late hours welcomes today ..and there is a feeling that maybe what is being done is right and valuable. I do not question that for it would be improper to impose my own feelings on my own ..there are others that say, and one would not like to go against the grain, but yes lovely to be in the positive and pressure now to maintain those positives …
Yet again the pictures speak more than what I may ever be able to assess .. and which is why these :
A contestant wishes to dance with me …. what at this age ? and I readily oblige .. there is more expression on mine than hers when truly she should be the one to express .. missed it ..
And … yet again a chance meeting with Rani and Aamir … in the Atrium of YRF .. discussing nothing in particular … she asking when I could see her film ‘Mardani’ and he informing me of the moments I spent with him a short while ago .. !! Mysterious eh !! Yeah, so ..??
Truly the extent of the business of KBC .. the complications of an entirely computerised set and technology ..
Its time like most other times to be in a space which in general terms is referred to as ‘the bed’ … !!
Good night my dears … my work schedules are like … ya .. inexplainable !!
Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangeable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get gender confirmation surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changeable.
While it is true that gender and sex are different things, and that gender is indeed a social construct, sex isn’t the Ultimate Biological Reality that transphobes make it out to be. There’s nothing intrinsically male about XY chromosomes, testosterone, body hair, muscle mass or penises. If an alien civilization found earth, they wouldn’t look at a person with a penis and say “Oh, that must be a male, sex based on genitalia is the One Universal Constant.” Sex, like gender, is indeed socially constructed and can be changed."
