On a part of all transgender people, I would like to say a few thing:
Just because we’re friends, that doesn’t mean you have any, any, excuse to be transphobic or make transphobic jokes. Just because I like you doesn’t mean you can use me as a free pass for your disgusting jokes. I’m a transgender boy, not an emotionless robot.
Transgender woman and men are more than a fetish. We are more than your fantasy. We are more than your porn preferences. We are not your sick idea of a living kink.
If you’re going to write about trans people, DO YOUR FUCKING RESEARCH!!! Starting T doesn’t mean you are automatically fully biologically male. Dysphoria is fucking awful. People who are meant to support us can just make us a joke. Bullying is real and scary.
Mental illness and being LGBT are not the same thing.
No LGBT person in popular media represent us all. We’re all unique and different, because we’re all fucking human??
No, my name is not a nickname. It is my name. Whether it is my birth name or not is irrelevant.
Teachers, you can be the most supportive and amazing people ever and I’d like to take a second to thank my English teacher for being so supportive.
Stop using us as jokes. Like, I really fucking hate it. Just don’t.
We’re normal! We’re nothing scary, we’re not going to attack you for being cis, and we don’t want anything more than your support and love!
Teach your kids or siblings or parents or whoever these rules. They’re simple, easy, and can make a trans person’s day when you follow them!
Sorry for being so angry. I’m just sick of people calling me a lesbian.
