That feeling when you make other people ship the things you ship
ok let me talk for a minute about why i think the word “transtrender” is so gross and harmful to trans* and queer people in general
the meaning of the word transgender literally is just identifying as a gender other than the one you were designated at birth. there are no other “qualifications”. you do not have to feel a certain way about your body or want surgery or present traditionally masculine in order to be a “real” trans* man or traditionally feminine enough to be a “real” trans* woman.
furthermore implying that binary trans* people have to hate their bodies and have a certain amount of dysphoria and present a certain way so they always pass erases nonbinary (genderqueer, agender, bigender, genderfluid, etc.) identities and enforces the gender binary and sets all of us back and makes a lot of trans* people feel like they don’t belong in the lgbtq community which is really awful because we experience enough discrimination from cishet folks as it is. NO trans person should ever feel uncomfortable being open about their identity around other trans* people who should be at least a little bit sympathetic about their experiences.
imposing rules and guidelines that determine whether someone is “actually trans” or “trans enough” is so backwards and goes against so much of what the lgbtq community as a whole represents. it emulates a lot of cissexist and transphobic attitudes that queer people experience every day from the cispatriarch society we live in and pushes us back and makes people feel awful about their identities and like they don’t belong. calling people “transtrenders” for not fitting certain bullshit guidelines only narrows the trans* umbrella and erases nonbinary identities and it’s so unnecessarily hateful and gross. you do not have to fit in a little box to be a “real” trans* person. nobody should ever feel that way.
Ahh thank you. I feel kinda self-conscious about my voice because it’s quite.. high-pitched. But I’m glad you think so UuU
