cis ppl tend to sometimes say that “feminism/social justice has gone too far!” when a gender neutral pronoun is acknowledged by an authority figure or when gender neutral bathrooms are included somewhere, and i’m still really puzzled as to what this discourse exactly means
i am here, i use gender neutral pronouns and i’m uncomfortable using gendered bathrooms. most of these people speak as if i don’t exist, and that these changes happen because some brainwashing force of nature is making people in positions of power add gender neutral pronouns or bathrooms when they aren’t needed. it seems like they erase me and my nb siblings so they can attack authority figures (who were probably very rectulant on being nb inclusive in the first place) in an attempt to seem radical, so they can get defensive and say “i don’t hate trans ppl, but there ARE only two genders!!” when told that their reaction being as strong as it is sounds really sketchy.
erasing people to a political statement, then attacking that statement, really isn’t that radical.
