An important purchase
I’m so tired of self-hating queers and trans folks dominating the discourse over our existence(s), chastising queer/trans people who’re trying to take pride of themselves, and basically calling them FAKE QUEER/TRANSTRENDER for daring to use a bit of humor to take pride on themselves, for daring to not subscribe to the idea that being queer/trans is a curse upon them that they’d run away from if they could.
You may not be calling them transtrenders or fake queers directly, but telling trans/queer people that they’re treating transness and queernes as trendy labels is basically the same as calling them fake queers and transtrenders, even if that’s not your intention.
And I’m especially tired of how conveniently EASY it is for cishet allies to roll with that discourse that normalizes being cishet (As in, making it the norm, and making transness and queerness a condition that makes us differ from the norm). You’re not being gr9 allies, you’re the last people on earth who should be reblogging those posts.
It’s already hard enough for us to take pride of ourselves in a society and system made to destroy us without people from our own communities telling us that we can never refer to what we are as anything other than suffering and woe is me.
And let me tell you, besides stopping us from taking pride in ourselves and trying to unlearn self hatred, you’re stopping people from trying to find out what they really are, because by being so SRS BUSINESS you stop people from experimenting, as if compulsory heterosexuality and cisnormativity/cis-unless-you’ve-known-forever-and-hate-your-body discourse weren’t a problem and instead of debunking those you’re backing up those by giving them your REAL TRANS/QUEER SEAL OF APPROVAL.
I would’ve never found out about my gender had I not changed my ideas on that, I would keep thinking I’m just a cis girl and I should stop insulting REAL TRANS PEOPLE with my doubts. Hell, my best friend is a 100% binary trans girl and the first time she asked me to treat her as a girl for five minutes just to see if that was her thing she seemed to be apologizing the whole time for experimenting and trying it out!
met up with friends, and watched one fly her beautiful first year Peruvian Harris hawk.
