Dumb gender thought of the day: “Sure, you could say I’m a woman – in the same way you could say that a dolphin is a fish.”

If your first thought was: “okay, so you’re definitely not a woman, got it.” Congrats! You’re correct!

If your first thought was: “well, actually, that depends, as the cultural definition of ‘fish’ has varied throughout time and context, such as in kashrut, which classifies all fully aquatic animals as ‘fish,’ with only the ones having fins and scales being kosher, and that’s not even getting into cladistics,wherein ‘fish’ is not a category that you can meaningfully define without including all mammals, and….” Mazel tov! You’re also correct (and also a nerd)
