Apparently I’m a cis-het guilty of ableism, if I have translated the “queer feminist” babble correctly. Again, stretching for an English translation of SJW made-up words, I think this means I’m a normal heterosexual male who is attracted to women who look like they are “able” to have children. Shame on me for such ableist prejudice!

In my defense, let me point out that all normal males are genetically programmed to think this way, and if we weren’t, the race would have died out long ago. In similar fashion cis-het women are attracted to men who look like they are able to support their children. This is normal, and if you think this is “toxic” I suggest you look in the mirror for the problem. This diatribe is literally packed with the “bigotry, ignorance, and hate” Maya Gittleman says she opposes.

Proof that “beauty standards”, rather than being “Eurocentric” are remarkably flexible and diverse is all around us: people fall in love with each over across all possible barriers of race, religion, language, culture and disability. All you have to do it look with unbiased eyes at the parents of the next generation: they are a pretty diverse group, but all are beautiful to their partners.
