You know, I don’t understand when people tell me to just “ignore them” or “walk away” when I encounter bigots and terfs, both online and in real life. Yes, arguing with these people is usually frustrating, triggering, annoying, and painful. It taxes my mental health. But I can’t just let them go without any repercussions every time.
Yeah, I do take my mental health into consideration and sometimes I do walk away. But rarely.
I don’t just do it for my own benefit. I don’t do it to make myself feel better. I do it for my trans siblings.
For the black trans men and women and nonbinary people who have an even higher chance of violence committed towards them or being murdered, because with my white privilege I am less likely to be killed.
For the closeted trans kids who have to sit by while they listen to their shit parents talk about trans people like they’re monsters and cry themselves to sleep at night for fear of being ostracized.
For the disabled trans people who are ignored and looked down upon simply because they are considered childlike or unable to make their own desicions, even though they can identify their gender just like any able bodied person.
For the mentally ill people who are too traumatized to subject themselves to constant scrutiny, and are stereotyped into having a “transgender mental illness”.
I do it for my brothers, my sisters, and my nonbinary siblings. And I will continue to do so until they are safe. No matter how long that takes.
Okay what happen with transasamisato??? I mean i read it again and again and dont understand im sorry i really want to know all
She reduced AAVE to “fascist speak” and got called out for it and my friend lilly said the t slur because she’s also a trans woman and black women have a very different relation to slurs than white women do and she basically told her followers to harass her. When I told her she was being antiblack she started arguing with me about what is and is not racist then blocked me.
