batglitch said: The hurt trans* men feel is directly influenced by their female socialization which trans* women had the PRIVILEGE of not being raised with. So you're not even starting on even playing fields. I don't know why you need to compare the struggles of both as if trans* men are somehow infringing upon the rights of trans* women by existing.

BUT WHAT ABOUT TEH MENNNNNZZZZ!?!?!? D:

I HAVE SEEN THE ERROR OF MY WAYS. I WILL DEFINITELY FOCUS ALL MY EFFORTS ON ELEVATING TRANS MEN EVEN FURTHER ABOVE TRANS WOMEN

I SHALL ENSURE THEY CONTINUE TO RECEIVE ACCESS TO WOMEN’S COLLEGES. IT IS A TRAVESTY WHEN THEY CAN’T TRANSFER AFTER TRANSITIONING

I WILL ENSURE THAT WOMEN’S HEALTH CLINICS CONTINUE TO SPEND OODLES OF MONEY TRAINING STAFF IN THEIR HRT, WHILE THEY CONTINUE TO REFUSE TRANS WOMEN HRT, EVEN THOUGH IT’S THE SAME HRT YOU GIVE TO MENOPAUSAL WOMEN AND OTHER WOMEN WHO HAVE ISSUES PRODUCING ESTROGEN.

I WILL ENSURE THAT TRANS MEN CONTINUE TO HAVE ACCESS TO WOMEN’S SPACES, BECAUSE WOMEN ARE DEFINED SOLELY BY THEIR VAGINAE AND UTERI, AM I RIGHT?!?

AND I WILL NOW WORK TO CORRECT THE INEQUITY IN THIS LIST. I MEAN, TRANS MEN HAVE THREE THINGS ON THERE, THAT IS REALLY UNJUST BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST THE BEST PEOPLE EVER AND TRANS WOMEN HAVE FAR TOO LITTLE SHIT BEING HEAPED ON THEM.

weareaddictedtothelword-deactiv said: you do realize that you just agreed with me, right? It make member of the trans* community inhuman by removing their right to identify. You just keep making statements without backing them up and it is simply not a productive conversation

Actually, it brings up all the murders, rapes, sexual assaults, dismissals, erasures, and other miscellaneous forms of violence systematically enacted against us while saying that word, and that is what makes it oppressive. Not because it removes their right to identify.

And you’re doing the exact same thing, in that neither of us are linking to anything. But I’m a trans woman, unlike you, so it would appear. Which means that I’m the expert in this situation and have more credibility than you.


weareaddictedtothelword-deactiv said: But, you're being silly. How does it oppress people? By taking away their right to identify. Things don't just oppress people, they have to use something to oppress.

No, it oppresses people by making us inhuman and inovking abuses and oppressive actions of the past


namelesstunnelgrub said: And when anons identify you get one hundred anons that are supposedly x marginalized group saying stuff supporting y privileged group's bullshit. Per one or two real members of said marginalized group who would actually do that. And it's terrible.

Yep. If you want to actually use it in an argument, you have to put your name behind it.


weareaddictedtothelword-deactiv said: Just wanted to point out that your argument(s) are fundamentally flawed. I would very much like to see you justify your continual extreme and counter productive statement. Indeed, I would like to accuse you of playing into the exact same mentality you despise. You actually said once "Anons don't get to identify" but the entire problem with the use of the "T slur" is that it robs people of their right to identify. Again, please use some logic or philosophy to justify your pretty outrageous claims

Actually, the problem with the t slur is that it is a slur which has been used to oppress camab trans people for decades

Anonymous said: RE: the lady gaga thing; i mean, I personally hate being call a girl, and I want people to know that I am not (I'm mtf) so what's wrong with wanting the world to stop thinking you are a gender that you are not. It's got nothing to do with her being offended to be called transgender.

Except every single one of her statements that would fit your ask imply that being trans means that you aren’t a woman, regardless of your gender. No one is saying she’s nonbinary, people were just saying she was trans. And responding to that with “I really am a lady” or “my vagina is offended”  is transmisogynistic. The former says that being trans means you aren’t a lady. The latter is saying it’s offensive to be called trans, meaning trans is a lesser status, and the vagina bit is cissexist

Anonymous said: "Neil Jordan Thinks That the Logical Response to Finding Out That the Woman You're About to Have Sex With is Trans is Vomiting in His Movie "The Crying Game"" ... do you think a *Catholic man* in the 70s-80s is going to have a favourable response? Writing a *fictional* account of someone responding that way is not the same as condoning it. By the way, the two characters still end up romantically involved.

Just because transmsigoyny is normal doesn’t mean it isn’t transmisogyny
