No matter where I go in this nation to train on trans inclusion, whether it is the Midwest to the coast, the main concern always, ALWAYS brought up are restrooms (and locker rooms). I for now on will just show this video and then do education on how their attempts to make a joke of it, just isn’t funny it makes them look silly. Way to go Illinois State University!
Oh so many reasons.
1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.
It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.
Fuck everyone running around with “LGBT" on a t-shirt or a button who still asks, "is that a girl or a boy?" Fuck all of you pieces of shit getting day drunk and littering all over my city while you feed your own egos with pseudo-morality. Fuck the cis, white lesbian last year who was handed a "Trans rights are human rights" sticker and stuck it one someone saying, "you can be a little tranny now!" Fuck your celebration. Your safe space isn’t safe and your acceptance is conditional. Fuck you.
when i find stretch marks on my thighs i make a point of smooching them because they’re just doing their best at keeping the all-powerful immortal Being within me from ripping my mortal shell asunder in a blaze of heavenly glory and eviscerating the cosmos in my divine wrath
This is a simple text based game where you play as a young trans person trying to buy some underwear. I made it with the intention of showing cis people what it’s like to be trans. You can play as a trans girl, trans boy, or a nonbinary person. It’s short, so you can play it multiple times for different paths. There are several paths, some better, some worse; if you’re easily triggered by dysphoria or transphobia, you may want to avoid this game. Some paths are safer than others, depending on how well you pass (surprise, surprise). TW for homophobic/transphobic slurs, transphobia/transmisogyny, slurs, misgendering, and possible violence.
I did this just to see how relatable it was, and holy shit it was like someone put me back in the spots i was in only a year ago. My heart is racing shit.
ow… my everything hurts…
Hey all my cis followers: this is instructive. Go play it.
So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.
Wow, 500 notes
Girls protecting girls.
