dont talk to me about trans issues if

neoyato:

cishetofficial:

  • transgendered/cisgendered
  • asterisk****
  • "biologically ___" 
  • cisphobia
  • "they isn’t grammatically correct" 
  • "comfortable in your body/gender"

since this got a lot of notes and i received a few asks about what some of these meant, here’s the follow up with explanations on why i cannot stand any of the shit above 

  • transgendered/cisgendered: to be trans or cis is not a past action. it is not a VERB. the -ed at the end is unnecessary and wrong and when you use it shows that you probably aren’t invested enough in these issues to actually know what you’re talking about
  • the asterisk is harmful and transmisogynistic and here’s why 
  • there is no such thing as “biologically female” and “biologically male” and they are just terms coated with cissexism and invalidation here’s another great post about it 
  • cisphobia doesn’t fucking exist. period. 
  • they/them pronouns are grammatically correct and have been for centuries. refusing to use them on the basis of your precious grammar is flat out transphobic. and that applies to basically all other pronouns too. denying someone’s right to have their correct pronouns used is an act of transphobia. 
  • "comfortable in your body/gender" is NOT the definition for being cis. trans people like their genders. we can be comfortable in our bodies. implying that we can’t like our gender or our body just further perpetrates the notion that to be trans, you must be miserable and hate yourself and wallow in self pity, and that just isn’t true and is a harmful expectation to give us. if you need to define cis, all it is is when your gender matches up with your assigned sex. no happiness involved.

When I started transition, almost 14 years ago, I imagined, I had this fantasy, that I would start taking hormones and in a few years, I was gonna blend in and no one would ever know that I was trans. I could just live my life undetected. And I knew a lot of trans folks like that, it was presented as the goal of transitioning. 

When I realized that I wasn’t blending in effortlessly, I had to sort of to reevaluate things for myself. I had to begin to think about and I’ve begin to own this transgender thing. It became something that I had to say, "Well, this is who I am." (x)

"Trans rights are human rights." This moving video features 21 transgender people in Asia and across the Pacific sharing their experiences with their families, healthcare providers, government entities and more, and how those experiences were shaped by their trans status. 

Together with UNAIDS, the Asia-Pacific Transgender Network released the video for special recognition today, Zero Discrimination Day, which is “a day to celebrate everyone’s right to live a full life with dignity no matter what they look like, where they come from or who they love.” (via Gay Star News)

I was going to apologize for making “another one of those” posts; but then I remembered how many of those “feel sorry for cis people!!” comics there are and how they have SO MUCH MORE notes than informative and trans sympathetic posts so. I’m not apologizing for this.

Further links:
- singular “they” is grammatically correct, no matter what your high school english teacher says
don’t be afraid to question your own gender identity and don’t let people guilt trip you about it (additionally, being nb and not minding gendered pronouns is an acceptable comfort)
- why you should respect people’s pronouns and identities (and not be a rude asswipe about it)
- re: hate and social justice | re: generalizing oppressors and social justice
- the trans housing network !
- some good points if you’re cis
- "but none of my trans / queer / any other oppressed group is mean to me in real life, it’s just mean people on tumblr!"
- penises and vaginas and chromosomes have nothing to do with gender fyi
- there’s no such thing as being “trans enough”
- protect transwomen at all costs
- petition to legally recognized nonbinary genders
- resources: x x

I just wrote out my template for this term’s classes informing my professors that the name they see on their roster is not the name I go by.

I’m sharing it here in case you need some help wording yours. Just add your own information where the blanks are. Love to you for this…

my two-week long flash game project for animation is finished and up on my deviantart! play it here!
FEATURES: ———————- 3 gender choices— male, female, and nonbinary! i tried to make the nonbinary option as gender-neutral as possible, so it could go towards either gender, be a combination of both, or neither depending on the clothing choices!  3 skin tones— because POC (like myself) are people too and are really cool! so that should be an option! 2 body types— one on the chubbier side and one on the skinnier side- because not everyone has the same body types!
even if you can’t play it, please reblog so others can check it out!
