Do you know why identity is so important? Because men, for as long as we have dominated, refuse to acknowledge identities of that we don’t find acceptable.
It may come in the form of impoliteness, or being rude, and it can escalate to lynching.
Take women and homosexuality for example, it wasn’t just if you were gay you would be despised, any friend of homosexuality would be discreetly excommunicated from the culture.
I blame the male gender for people to take to such extremes to just identify themselves as to who they want to be.
They would be fine in our bathrooms if we didn’t make it so hostile.
We’ve seen drag for a long time now, I have a hard time seeing the hate because allies do not receive the backlash from either side. Allies are ignored like elephants in the room, and are largely untouched and ignored. We can stop escalation, and people directly avoid conflict with us, as we have legitimacy to them because we cis stay in our lanes.
wtf ever, I’m just telling you how it is, and the reason I go hard on the men vs. trans rhetoric.
Blaming men is exactly how you get under the skin, and there is truth in the claim.
Men don’t allow identities we don’t find acceptable, it could be something as trivial as baggy pants, or dressing like the opposite sex.
Because we can’t even have THAT!
All people want to do is be who they feel they are!
Trans? You mean a gay person that dresses drag, or do they have to be gay, or why does it even matter?!
Because men made it so, we won’t allow anything, we have barely allowed women and minorities rights less than a century ago! And that’s was only under the presumption that nothing was going to change!
How can you not blame us?!
As an ally, after speaking to my trans friends and considering the conflict they face, I believe this is how the trans community would want me to fight the frontline.
This is why I bring them up, to put us in our place.
Correct me if I’m wrong.
