acts of bloggery

I love when folks talk about me, as a trans woman, critiquing the patriarchy from the angle that “but it was in your favor before transition”.

Are we talking about the same patriarchy that had me coded as “faggy” and “effeminate” from childhood before I even had an idea of my own sexuality, that always has and continues to regard me as a “lesser form” of however I’ve expressed myself?

That patriarchy?

Yeah that thing did *soooo much* for me, thanks a fucking bunch.

Speaking of OkCupid…

Somehow I’m even more weirded out that he apparently DIDN’T know I was a trans woman before asking me out of the blue how big my feet were.

And then he’s all like HEY I WORSHIP FEET IN  A CREEPY WAY AND PAY GIRLS TO WALK ON EACH OTHER OH SNAP A TR*NNY GOTTA BOUNCE HOLLA

I wish motherfuckers would read my profile before talking to me. Or, if they’re creepy, just not talk to me.
