seriously like enough with the “well trans or cis hate is never ok” look
i will spend part of next month lobbying for a bill to make sure i can’t be denied housing or fired for being trans* in my state
but cis people hear the words “too rad to be cis” and sincerely think “i am being oppressed by trans* people”
no one is ever going to say to you “well you’re qualified on paper but it says here that you’re not rad, and we think that might be disruptive to the office environment, you understand”
no one is going to say “what are you doing in this restroom, you’re not rad” and force you out physically for your lack of radness
nO ONE IS GOING TO START A COURT CASE WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU SLEPT WITH THEM WITHOUT DISCLOSING YOUR STATUS AS A NOT RAD PERSON
THERE ARE ACTUAL SOCIETAL CONSEQUENCES FOR WIDESPREAD BIAS AGAINST TRANS* PEOPLE. THERE ARE NOT ACTUAL SOCIETAL CONSEQUENCES FOR THE PHRASE “TOO RAD TO BE CIS”
THESE ARE NOT EQUAL THINGS
and if you decide the way to express your feelings about someone saying “too rad to be cis” is INVADING ONE OF THE FEW SAFE SPACES TRANS* PEOPLE HAVE TO CREATE FOR OURSELVES AND MAKING IT UNSAFE, JUST OUT OF SPITE, YOU ARE A JERK
YOU ARE A JERK DELIBERATELY DOING A TERRIBLE THING TO PEOPLE
STOP BEING A JERK
While I agree that cisgendered people are privileged, that still does not make hating on cisgender people okay. In the case of hating on people because of their gender preference, that will never be okay despite if one gets hated on more by the general public or not. In either case, the person being bullied may feel bad.
Why don’t we all agree that hating on a person just because of gender preference makes you an asshole and leave it at that? Let’s just accept each other for who we are and mind our own businesses.
- “gender preference” is a fucking disgusting way of putting it, what the fuck. being trans* is not a ~preference~.
now to address the actual point of your shitty comment:
REASONS CIS PEOPLE HATE TRANS* PEOPLE
- misplaced homophobia/misogyny
- being self-centred fuckfaces
REASONS TRANS* PEOPLE HATE CIS PEOPLE
- reacting to the above
- seriously that’s why
- it’s a reaction to a lifetime of constant hatred and belittlement and danger
THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN CIS PEOPLE HATE TRANS* PEOPLE
- denial of medical procedures
- refusal to use names/pronouns
- “corrective” rape
- abuse of all kinds
- termination of jobs
- heightened suicide rates
- heightened self-harm rates
- a lot more along this vein
- you get the idea
THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN TRANS* PEOPLE HATE CIS PEOPLE
- cis people who haven’t yet pulled their head out of their ass get sad/feel bad
- no seriously that’s it
and then people like you derail posts by trans* people for trans* people and about trans* people to recentre the discussion on you! and that just means that trans* people are cast as ‘just as bad’ for our REACTION TO HATRED THAT DOES LITERALLY FUCKING NOTHING.
So yeah, no, it’s not ~just as bad~ in any fucking sense of the term, and if you feel bad BE FUCKING GLAD THAT THAT’S THE ONLY GODDAMNED RESULT.
lu laughed about poop too hard and bashed their fucking head i love them very much
