dont tell me i am not allowed to be angry. not when by gender is constantly invalidated and insulted. not when my siblings are dying. not when i am treated like something sub-human. i am allowed to be angry. i am allowed to take up space.
1. buy them new clothes and other accessories to make them feel more comfortable
2. slam dunk the old clothes into the nearest donation center where they belong
3. respect your child’s identity and use whatever name and pronouns they want you to use
"shitty intolerant people are the problem" is an absurd oversimplification of social issues because while shitty people are a problem, if they were really the only reason social injustice still existed then why do we have to fight tooth and nail to tear down existing structures of inequality
the problem is not shitty intolerant people it’s passive, disinterested people who want to shrug off all responsibility because “there are people worse than them”
If we’re not all equal then we can’t act like we are — that ignores the fact that some groups of people are treated like total shit, and overlooks their suffering. It’s like going, “LA LA LA WE’RE ALL HUMAN BEINGS I REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE MARGINALIZATION AND OPPRESSION OF YOUR COMMUNITIES”. You can’t say that society is failing communities out there, while also saying that we’re ~all born equal~. You don’t live in a bubble; the society you live in directly affects who is and is not “equal” in said society. Don’t ignore the oppression of people just because you delusion yourself about how you can just think we’re all equal and it’s magically so.
"hatred towards majorities is just as bad as hatred towards minorities" — Prove it.
Because there’s absolutely nothing worse than being fine with how you were born.
This may come as a shock to you, but not all trans* people are uncomfortable with their body. Being “fine” with “how you were born” doesn’t make someone cisgender lol.
i bathe in the tears of straight ‘allies’ that cry about heterophobia
i’ve started a bog to signal boost lgbt+ people in need of donations.
a few friends and i also run a blog to promote lgbt+ artists/creators (ccslcanada.tumblr.com)
I’d really appreciate it if you posted this so that your followers could see it :)
Write a long, well thought out post about transphobia, cissexism, transmisogyny, etc, and see how long it takes for a cis person to reblog your post and add something like: “Yes, but not all cis people are like that.”
For an extra fun time, see how long it takes for a cis person to reblog your post accusing you of “hateful behavior”.
For an extra extra fun time, see how long it takes for a cis person to say “no wonder you’re oppressed, you’re so mean.”
And by “fun” I mean obnoxious and frustrating.
