OMFG GUYS HELP CHRIS PINE IS SITTING NEXT TO ME WHAT THE FUCK HOLY CRAP WHY IS HE HERE? WHY IS CAPTAIN FUCKING KIRK IN RICCARTON MALL?!?
Just look at him and whisper “James Tiberius Kirk.” and see what he does
I initiated a friendly conversation to disguise myself as a non-fangirling normal civilian. Then, as I was leaving, I silently turned around and did the Vulcan Salute. His eyes went wide and he literally backed away.
The difference is that no one will murder you for being cis. Trans people have a one in twelve chance of being murdered for being cis (higher if you're a trans woman or poc trans person). That's why no one has patience for what they call your "victim complex". Because cis people being told to die DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO BE AFRAID OF DYING FOR BEING CIS. I sincerely hope you think deeply about this and that helps you to understand why your feelings < trans peoples' lives.
No matter how I look at it, it is absolutely inexcusable to attack a person for their gender identity, no matter who it’s coming from.
I’m pansexual and there are people who would kill me for that. I’m a woman and there are people who would beat and rape me for it just to prove their dominance. I’m afraid of these things every single fucking time I leave my house. Everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community faces oppression and persecution, not exclusively trans people. It doesn’t fucking matter if you’re cis or you’re trans or fluid; if you’re queer, you’re in danger.
But that doesn’t even matter. Many of my friends are cis and not queer, and I won’t tolerate this bullshit shaming and oppression Olympics like it’s a goddamn fucking contest. “WHO CAN BE THE MOST OPPRESSED?” Trans, cis, neither, in between, whatever, you are shitting over human beings’ identities and it is not okay. Take note that there are trans people who think “die cis scum” mentalities are bullshit.
So, am I still not allowed to be fucking upset, or are you going to get a goddamn clue and go away, now?
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.”—
