the trans 100

anonymous asked:

god these people are ridiculous like they'll literally say "oh i support trans people! 100% i'm not transphobic at all!" and then when a trans person tells them they're doing smth transphobic and that they need to stop suddenly we're whiny and demanding

Yeah, it’s something that’s prevalent whenever someone wants to ‘appear’ like they’re not bigoted but they’re so set in their own opinions and not ready to ever change them that they pick and choose what people from a certain minority they’ll listen to so long as they coincide with their own beliefs. You can generally find anyone from any minority who will agree with their oppressors, they think they’ll get kudos but they’re really only playing into the entire oppressive dynamic. Trans people should not only be heard and respected when cis people agree with us, but at all times, otherwise it is not true respect nor true equality

situation: there are cameras around recording but the BtoB members are unaware. Actors were hired to portray fans following them on the streets. When another actor, pretending to be one of the fans’ oppa, orders her to go home with him and becomes rather violent about it, this is how Changsub reacts.

Honestly I 100% support trans people lying to doctors about their experiences and identities to get health care and hormones from doctors who have granted themselves the right to decide whether people get hormones based on everything from what you wear to your sexual orientation.
