    > sees person on another website questioning whether they are transgender or not
    > offers some helpful advice regarding transgender vs crossdresser, since this seemed to be something they were having problems with/was causing them to question their transgender…

    I think this is one part of why the shit the trans and queer communities have given crossdressers is wrong. Aside from the general douchiness of it. You end up convincing people they can’t be what they are, so they think they’re something they’re not and cause themselves pain.

    imagine how many people would identify as bisexual if there wasn’t such a huge misunderstanding of what bisexuality actually means

Anonymous said: Apparently, I'm super privileged, even though I'm not straight, not cis, not in the best medical health AND don't make a big enough income to cover most medical fees, which makes it really hard to find a better job, but hey! I'm more privileged than this 14 year old who's mommy buys them $200 worth of anime merchandise a month and has enough free time to spend nearly 7 hours online a day!! Yep mm feel my I've-had-PB&J-sandwiches-the-past-four-days-because-I-can't-buy-groceries-yet privilege.

    Economic privilege, class privilege, education privilege — the ones all these assiduous privilege-checkers never bother talking about.

    By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’

    Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the…

    Loki was apparently quite the charming mare, too. Though the foal that resulted was a bit odd. And also a death metaphor.

     

  5. When I was a young child, I absolutely hated getting new shoes or new clothes.  I would pitch screaming tantrums about it.  Things were always uncomfortable when they were new and I hated hated hated it.  

    I’m a little better now, but I think a lot of that’s that I get to choose what I can stand, now, and there’s more variety, and I’m somewhat accustomed to that annoyance.

    But I’m still that flailing upset child sometimes.

    I don’t even know what the tucute platform is. It seems to be like the MRA platform- get nothing constructive done and blame (other group, usually ones who are actually doing activism work) for our problems while simultaneously wishing them dead/raped/etc, and telling them…

    It’s not just that, though. They order people like this:

    1. DMAB trans people
    2. DFAB trans people who do not identify as men
    3. Cis women. Cis, so scum, but being female compensates
    4. Cis men. They choose not to be trans and thus are oppressive scum by choice
    5. DFAB trans men. The worst of the worst because they chose to become men and should not have.

    It’s this delightful combination of interlocking bigotries. It’s transwoman-supremacy.

    Either way I seem to be low on the tucute radar.

    Well, being a cis girl protects me from a lot of the transphobia of the tucutes, and being a girl means I’m not an evil man.

    So, y’know. That’s kind of nice.

    Which also shows what bigots they are.

    what is a tucute

    Term coined by Tumblr user idislikecispeople for her and her type. They align themselves in opposition to those dubbed “truscum”.

    As far as I can work out, their opinions are:

    Hatred of cis people (but mostly men).

    Transgender is purely about choice, not physical gender dysphoria.

    Being gendered male is disgusting and oppressive.

    Because they could choose to be trans and refuse to, cis men choose to be evil oppressors.

    Trans men are even worse because being men was an active choice to change.

    Her Tumblr is a never-ending stream of stupid. At first I thought troll, but now I believe she’s serious, though I think addicted to the attention she gets for saying ridiculous things.

  9. It occurs to me frequently that, had I grown up in modern-day America instead of 1970s Britain, I would have been diagnosed with a long list of things so, so quickly.  Some of those would have been right.  Some of them wildly wrong.

    Instead I got told by a psychiatrist at the age of 38 that I was Asperger’s, which doesn’t seem to be the typical way of getting the news.  Though my partner had been suspecting this for quite some time.  She’s American, thus more awareness of these things.  Brits don’t believe in mental illness, historically / stereotypically, and too much of that rubbed off on me.

    I don’t want to make it sound like I blame my parents in any way, shape or form, by the way.  They did great by me.  They treated their very odd eldest son as a wonderful one to have, my oddness to be mostly celebrated.  They believed very strongly in few rules and little punishment, and in treating us as much like adults as they could.  Very rarely were “because I said so!” uttered in my presence.  They let me take apart things they knew I’d ruin, because they welcomed my insatiable curiosity about everything.  They let me talk endlessly about my obsessions without ever making me feel like I should shut up.
