Very well put, sir or ma’am or sirma’am or captain.
Please refer to the two previously (and wonderfully stated) anons.
YES. NONNY YOU ROCK.
I wasn’t even exposed to transgender people until I came to college. And when I was, I tried as best I could to learn and understand how I need to treat them to promote equality. This is the case for a lot of cis people.
LIKE WE WANT TO HELP BUT A LOT OF US DON’T KNOW HOW SO PLEASE BE NICE AND SHOW US
Dude you’re proving my point.
Did you even read my post?
Please don’t hate on cis people. Yeah some of us suck (like really suck) but the majority of us are either really nice and friendly, or uninformed: in which case, inform us! If we use the incorrect pronoun or don’t know what to say, help us understand! We want to be there for you and help you and support you, but we can’t do that when we feel like this is how you feel:
We don’t understand your struggles, we haven’t been through the hell you’ve been through to just be able to be yourself without any shame, but you have to understand that we have no more control over our gender than you do over yours. I was born a woman and I feel comfortable as a woman. How is it okay to tell me I’m an ‘privileged bitch’ simply because of my gender? Isn’t that what we’re trying to fight against in the first place?
First and foremost we are all human beings and should be treated as such, no matter how we identify.
So please, let us be your allies. Let’s fight together against injustices of all kind. There’s strength in numbers. Can you imagine if we all banded together to fight homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, etc.? We couldn’t lose.
