Genitals Do Not Equal Gender

  This is well done.  I appreciate Hollie Howitt in their effort to change society to stop equating that our genitals equal gender.  Hollie uses adult language, while also using controversial words for vagina and penis, she makes a very good point about the human right to orgasm.  Plus, they elaborate on how the male… Continue reading Genitals Do Not Equal Gender
