to say homobigotry and/or transbigotry is the new racism (as i’ve seen people do a HUGE number of times) is terrible in a lot of ways

  • it’s trivializing of racism, to act like it’s suddenly over and no longer an issue
  • it’s trivilaizing of homobigotry and/or transbigotry, to act like it’s only just now begun and erases the oppression we’ve experienced for literally ever
  • it’s trivializing of the experiences of MOGII people of color, and how those different kinds of oppression influence each other

basically dont say that or related statements (“gay rights is the new civil rights movement”, etc). its not cool.
