[writes paper] this doesnt make any sense [prints it] [doesn’t proofread] [hands it in for a grade]

"Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable."

i literally cannot have a conversation with my mom (and most other cis ppl tbh) about how she and the rest of my family misgender me . there is always this super defense claim that i am being vindictive toward cis people for misgendering me because “its just something theyve never learned about” . as if i am being cruel and vindictive for expecting basic respect. and not only that, but i am upset that this respect is denied to ALL trans people and with these basic acts of disrespect and cis sentiments of “victimization” come VIOLENT consequences for trans people AT THE HANDS of CIS PEOPLE . cis people are the ones who erased trans and mogai history and the ones who continue to deny our existence with these microaggressions . so basically: i do not care if, even at my calmest, i come off as vindictive. my demeanor does not diictate jack shit about whether or not im a fucking person with this fragment of identity that is FINALLY starting to make sense amidst my declining mental health . if im the one who is literally too afraid to correct you on this simple fucking thing then maybe im not the one being aggressive here

  • me: hey i know this is kinda hard to get the hang of and we all slip up sometimes but im actually a "they"
  • cis person: oh whatever *never gets pronouns right*
  • me: hey buddy. look, youre fucking up--
  • cis person: WHY ARE YOU BEING SO VINDICTIVE. I DIDNT KNOW. THIS ISNT SOMETHING MOST NORMAL PEOPLE LEARN OKAY. ITS ABSOLUTELY NEVER MY FAULT
  • me: maybe you dont know because people like you write history books where historical and global queerness and third-genders dont exist and you have been killing abusing assaulting and arresting openly queer people for a fuckin while now
  • cis person: HOW CAN YOU PIN THAT ON ME. I AM JUST ONE CIS DROPLET IN AN OCEAN. YOU ARE DISCRIMINATING AGAINST CIS PEOPLE!!!!!!
