@remulacfrommars someone wrote to the Dear Prudence column a while ago saying, "my husband is an ICE agent and suddenly my friends don't want to be friends with us anymore, how do I make them see that he's really a good guy," and Prudence was like, "oh, see, your husband is a fascist actually, your friends are right to shun you"
kinda bored of reading cishets say shit like "its good to see a character where the only changes is the gender of their partner" or "im glad they're not the effeminate stereotype" or "im glad he's not the effeminate stereotype" or whatever bc all im hearing is "im glad I can't tell they're gay because that would ruin my enjoyment"
“Being a transgender woman in the world can be challenging at best and deadly at its worst, so you know it’s not a life change that you go into for any other reason but absolute necessity.” -Amy Ray on Laura Jane Grace
I really find this take annoying, perhaps because it is such a widely held belief. While transition has proven to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life, I don’t relate to this characterization. I know it’s true for some people, and I am glad they find it works for them, but this kind of universal narrative is the type of thing that delays transition for people.
I didn’t wait until the pain was unbearable to do it, all I waited for was understanding what I was experiencing.
There’s something really dark though that says one can only transition as a last resort, and I just never saw it that way. When I realized I was trans I saw the opportunity for happiness and I chose it, I actively chose it. It was and is not something I backed into.
also you know what i fucking hate so god damn much? the idea that small business are in anyway more moral in comparison to corps. ugh. the rage that fills my being when the owner walks in to the shop with their expensive lifestyle and their stress free demeanor and asks me how my day is. of course i say my day is great but i really want to lock them in their office until they pay their workers more and gives us enough pay to feel half the stability that they do. they would be nothing without us.
Ciel. ETX. 22. they/them. I stand for radical love, radical acceptance, and radical inclusion!
