@aredridel I’m curious what you see it having done.
@TrannyOakley So much naivete taken as deep truth. Particularly around how privilege works, and works for trans men.
@aredridel sorry. Can you be more specific? I’m not catching what you mean. Maybe im a bit dense this morning
@TrannyOakley Lots of assumptions that 'male privilege' is this simple switch and once you have it, you have it like some monolith. The entire embedded discourse really washes over the experience of basically every trans guy I know to paint them as a sort of easy mode trans.
@aredridel it did.
I don’t think we can blame Nevada for trying to summarize the issues of that historical moment briefly without being an extended exigesis on just that.
@TrannyOakley Yeah. I just think the summary is wrong and misleading.
@aredridel it’s a pretty accurate picture of how things were in queer women’s community where I was living at the time (which wasn’t New York). It’s the analysis that many of my trans guy friends shared at the time too.
I think having so little media for us makes Nevada powerful in causing that moment to echo, but what do I know? I still miss the Baeddels sometimes.
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
