Do not ask me to care about the feelings of cis people who call trans women men. Do not ask me to be nice to them, nor be gentle and calm in my language. Do not ask me to consider them my peers or require that I recognize their oppression.
They are being violent, and to ask me to do those things is to ask me to excuse that violence, to overlook that harm, to not recognize the history of that violence.
Asking me to do those things makes you complicit in that violence, as does your silence.
If you want kindnesses granted, first end the violence.AED (via tonidorsay)
so like I’ve seen a lot of posts about lesbian mermaids, but can we just take a minute to look at what a great metaphor mermaids/sirens make for trans women?
- accused of “seducing” men / leading them to their death
- viewed as half-women
- cis people don’t quite understand / are very curious about our genitalia
- extremely beautiful
so yeah I’m all for the trans woman mermatriarchy
when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore
Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.
Transphobes will still hate trans people regardless of how nice we are.
Queerphobes will hate queer people regardless of how nice we are.
Sexists will still hate women regardless of how nice we are.
Racists will still hate people of color regardless of how nice we are.
It doesn’t matter what we say or how we say it, they will still hate. And if your “support” is totally dependent on oppressed people’s tone and attitude, then you weren’t a supporter to begin with.
Anonymous asked: For the ten seconds I went on arecordofdangeroysfeminists I recommend NOT GOING ON IT. It is run by cismen lookig to "out" women who are "pro-misandry" and harmful to other cismen by filing rape allegations etc ...(1/2)
It asks for people to hack blogs to get their personal info so they can be harrassed. Avoid at all costs regardless of gender or sexuality. Very triggering and scary. (2/2)
Thank you for the info!
