FELLOW TRANS WOMEN: Never ever EVER make the mistake of aligning yourself with trans men or their political interests. Do not participate in “queer,” “LGBT,” or “trans community” branded spaces, be wary of “feminist” branded ones. Do not fill your head with trans men’s words or ideas. Do not date trans men. If you are isolated and suffering now, the introduction of trans men into your life will make it worse.
"If you are isolated and suffering now, the introduction of trans men into your life will make it worse" — this is true of all men. I’m talking specifically about trans men (a) because they get so many free passes & (b) because because force-teaming and the illusion of shared experience make us particularly vulnerable to them.
Lets do an experiment: reblog if you would feel safer hanging out with trans women (regardless of what genitals they currently posses) than Cis women who are transphobic and deny trans women’s obvious womanhood.
Everyone should read this. An essay written by Tania Billingsley, the woman at the centre of the sexual assault in Brooklyn, Wellington, by a Malaysian diplomat that was ignored by the government for SEVEN WEEKS. “It only became a matter of importance that was properly addressed when it started to inconvenience those in power.”
This is rape culture. This is unacceptable. Our government does not care about women.
News story here:
baeddel being turned into a thing only ‘bad trans women’ are is kinda hilariously gross
it’s pretty fucked up that people are trying to do this, but it also reflects the fact that we are not here to be nice to our oppressors and that they obviously feel quite insecure about that
I love trans dykes soooooooooo much
Unnecessarily appending post about men to specific “cis men*” is another way of saying “not all men.”
