Jewels I found while studying pre Middle Age art history:
Confused “Why do I have two hands?”
Trans ppl hating cis ppl isn’t “hating bc they’re different”
It’s hating their oppressor
Same with poc n whites, women n men, queer n straight
I’m really sorry if this bothers anyone, but I would just like to encourage a healthier mindset. This “hating the oppressor” thing is terrible and backwards. You can’t judge an entire population based on the negative experiences you’ve had with 5% of it.
By saying you hate cis people, you’re only fueling the hate. Returning the injustice that was done to you won’t solve your problem. It will only make it worse. And more likely than not, you’ll offend a shit ton of cissies and make them feel like they should hate transgendered people. Instead of returning fire, try eliminating the problem at the source and helping others understand what it is that makes you so beautiful and worth just as much as they are.
In fact, you might not even have to persuade that many people! A lot of cis people agree with the transgender community, myself included. I’m a 23-year-old straight white male (“privileged” for short), but I’m for gender/race equality, I consider myself a feminist, and I support lgbtq. I wasn’t, however, given a choice of genders when I popped out of my mom. No one was. I just so happen to agree with the one I was given. So you can hate me because I’m annoying as shit, you can hate me because my voice is too low, and you can hate me for being too tall. Hell, you can even hate me for the way I wear my hair. Just please don’t hate me because I’m cis. I didn’t choose my gender, but I sure as hell appreciate it, just as I appreciate all genders. Everyone should do the same.
