This is really important! Please reblog this post if you are a non-binary trans person.
teachers assuming that nobody in their class is queer, trans, abused, physically/mentally ill or has any other kind of issues at all and voicing their stupid opinions and teaching the entire class accordingly to that belief is pretty much the suckiest thing ever tbh and that needs to stop
This post is the worst because it shuns ableism and then proceeds to use an ableist slur. Like I love the idea behind it, but really?
Using the language of disability to denigrate or insult in our conversations and organizing presumes that
a.) people who hold undesirable or harmful viewpoints must hold them because they are mentally ill/have psych disabilities/are mentally disabled/are disabled in some way,
b.) having mental illness/psych disability/mental disability/any disability is actually so undesirable and horrible that you can insult someone that way (the same underlying reason why socially embedded linguistic heterosexism lets people use “gay” as an insult),
c.) it’s acceptable to use ableism against one disability group while decrying ableism against another disability group (creating horizontal or intra-disability oppression) or another form of oppression against another marginalized group (creating horizontal oppression), and
d.) and that no one who is disabled in any way might actually share your opinion or be on your side,
thus actually actively excluding and marginalizing this part of our community, and making our spaces less safe and less inclusive.
many happy butterflies
please do not ever go behind my back and ask somebody else if I am okay. if you asked me and I said I was fine that means either I am fine or I do not feel comfortable around you.
Hey Cisphobia isn’t real some people on tumblr are just assholes to people who are normal. This has been me on please don’t be a fuck.
If you are actually scared of normal people I’m sorry it must be hard everytime you go out in public and I hope you get over your genuine fear.
Yes. Yes I am.
I’m offended by people using the term cishet for alot of reasons. Firstly because you never know. You never know when someone is trans* And alot of people who’re trans* don’t want you to know.
Yes, I get it, cisgendered people are happy with their gender, and don’t have to deal with the same things trans* persons do. But most cisgendered people just so happen to have other problems. And I get that some cisgendered people are fucking assholes, and I get that some heterosexual people are fucking assholes.
But get this, when people use ‘cishet’ as an insult it makes me, a transgendered person, feel like shit. Because you’re making fun of people for what they identify as. the same thing trans* persons have to avoid, fight, and work through their entire life. It doesn’t matter who you’re doing this to, it’s fucking disgusting.
It doesn’t matter if its ‘not the same’ or ‘not as offensive’ or ‘a joke’ it’s just as bad. cisphobia pisses me off so badly.
Because sure there’s alot of cisgendered people who don’t understand and are fucking cock suckers, but let me tell you about how if it weren’t for the help of many people, 99% of which just so happening to be cisgendered, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I wouldn’t be the fucking man I am today. You know where I would be? In my fucking grave.
You don’t know a person just because they’re cisgendered and happy to be that way. you don’t fucking know a person if they’re transgendered and happy to be that way. why don’t we stop fucking sterotyping, and stop fucking hating AS MANY PEOPLE AS FUCKING POSSIBLE instead of pushing our hate toward a group of people who is the media’s vision of ‘normal’.
This is a really interesting perspective.
This user needs an award. Like now.
To be honest, I think cisphobia can almost even be considered transphobia.
Guess what I, as a trans man, want to do?
Transition to become a cis man. I wish I had been born a cis male. God, do I wish every fucking day that I had just been born cis and in the right goddamn body. What’s even worse is that I’ll never be exactly the way I should be, because the technology just isn’t there yet. I’m always going to be stuck in a weird in-between place with the surgeries I’ve decided to have.
So when people say, “I hate cis people,” that’s kind of like saying, “I hate what trans people wish they were. I hate what trans people may someday become. I hate post-op trans people who have successfully transitioned.”
That’s what so many of us are striving to be accepted as. We want to pass as cis. We want people to look at us and say, “Oh, they’re male/female!”
Cisphobes are pissing all over us in an attempt to piss on cis people (who they are also pissing on, don’t get me wrong). Even if this couldn’t be considered a form of transphobia, it’s still disgusting and childish, and it does nothing for us in the long run. Sure, it might feel good to “vent” right now, but what about years from now, when cis people fucking detest us, when we still don’t have our rights, because you little shits don’t know how to “vent” without being assholes? You’re hurting people. You’re threatening to kill people. You advocate genocide, rape, and murder.
Then you mock cis people when they get understandably upset, when they’re hurt by your words. You mock them for being human. You mock them for having emotions. You mock depressed people, suicidal people, even gay men and women, bisexuals, pansexuals.
Not only are you mocking trans people who wish that they could be cis or who have already fully transitioned, you are mocking 99% of the Earth’s population for their gender identities while simultaneously screeching about how trans people shouldn’t be mocked for their gender identities.
It’s fucking bullshit all around, folks! You’re trying so hard to be cruel to the majority that you’ve started being cruel to the minority, as well. Oh, what a tangled, hypocritical web you shitstains on existence weave!
One of these days, I’m going to be a fucking man. I’m going to look like a man, and I’m going to act like a man. I’m going to be what I should have been all along, and I bet you whiny little fucks will call me cis. To me, that won’t be a fucking insult. That will be a fucking medal that I worked hard to earn. I will have gone through surgery, I will have spent my life savings, I will have alienated the majority of my family, I will have given up so much just to be comfortable in my body, just to not hurt like I do now, and you think that calling me “cis” will hurt me, because it’s supposed to be an insult.
Nah. Y’all have no fuckin’ idea. Get outta here with your cisphobic, transphobic asses.
"So when people say, “I hate cis people,” that’s kind of like saying, “I hate what trans people wish they were. I hate what trans people may someday become. I hate post-op trans people who have successfully transitioned.”
Until I read this I never realized how much “us and them” is going on here.
You, Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.
usually I don’t reblog this, but the third comment/user is a fucking eye opener.
This is so gross. It is erasing nonbinary people and it is assuming all trans people want to be cis. It is associating cis with “happy with myself.” When you say trans people want to be cis, you are saying they want to be comfortable. But that is NOT what cis means. All that cis means is that the gender a person was assigned at birth matches their gender. Not they “are their biological gender,” not they “are comfortable in their body.” It means what the doctor announced them as so happened to align with their actual feelings of their gender. You are using “cis” as a default and a goal. And that is disgusting
tbh, hearing a privileged person say “we’re not all like that!” is a tip-off that i cannot trust them
if you hear about the suffering of marginalized people and your first instinct is to talk about your hurt feelings, then i know you do not care about anyone…
The (main) problem with this reply is that numbah214 is assuming stereotypes are the problems the oppressed face. The actual problems are more along the lines of being killed, denied jobs, denied marriage, and denied of any basic safety.
I’m not saying it’s fair, or even possible to try to care about every person or demographic. All I’m begging for is that we at least try not to be so hateful.
this persons victim complex is out of control holy shit
i also love how a dfab person used the t-slur and didnt even fucking censor it
ok so wow what makes this EVEN WORSE is that they represent binding with bandages. which is INCREDIBLY unsafe and should never be done.
