Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
Anonymous asked: Hey! I identify as pansexual and non-gender binary but I keep to myself often and I tend to be unaware of whats going on inside the LGBT community. However I notice some things when they pop up on my dash enough. I'm wondering if you could help me understand. Whats the deal with trans* men? Everyone in the community seems really unhappy with them, but I haven't quite figured out why.
Generally, transgender men have a tendency to fall into patriarchal roles where they exhibit oppressive behaviour like: sexism, transmisogyny, classism, racism, binarism, ableism, etc.
- Some use slurs that do not apply to them, and they have no right to use. (i.e. the t slur)
- Some speak for the entire community when it is not their place.
- Some spread misinformation and perpetuate the “trans enough” mentality,
- Some body shame folks who look differently or do not “pass” according to their own bigoted normative standards.
- Some tone-police and try to silence folks who are not fellow transgender men in supposedly safe transgender spaces.
- Some deny their privilege and play the victim when being called out instead of taking responsibility for their actions.
- Many take up trans safe spaces and make trans women and other gender non-conforming folks feel unsafe or unwelcome.
- Some are just plain truscum and exhibit all of the aforementioned behaviours.
- I can go on and on…
And when I repeatedly use the word ‘some’, I actually mean ‘most’. This is not new information, anon. This has been going on for quite some time now, and the fact that people still have a hard time seeing this everywhere they go - in the media, on the streets, in our “safe spaces”, on the internet, etc. - astounds me to this day. It is fucking terrifying and sad.
Here are some more specific examples I have compiled.
