talking about the exclusionary shit I’m seeing today, sorry I just really need to get this off my chest
So a 13 year old on twitter made a post mentioning “straight lesbians” and of course gatekeeper twitter decided to start sending them death threats and threats of violence so I just want to make it PERFECTLY clear:
A straight lesbian is a gender fluid person who is sometimes a man and sometimes a woman but always attracted to women, so sometimes they are straight and sometimes they are a lesbian
And I am god damn FUMING at all these fucking takes im seeing. “Isn’t that just bi?” “You can’t be a lesbian unless you’re always a woman” “if you’re ever attracted to men then you can’t be a lesbian”
And the more I see this shit just the angrier I get. When did it come to this. When did we suddenly become gender absolutionists. When did self determination become irrelevant. Why do we hate gender fluid people so much? Why do we hate people who aren’t fem or masc? Why do we alienate people with identities that push against the established norms of how we understand sexuality and gender to work?
I see so many people see something they think makes no sense and without trying to be understanding and empathetic they just attack and harass literal children. Swaths of our community have become nothing more than reactionaries.
This is NOT who we fucking are. We aren’t better but we can be. I’m sick of this.
just want to say right now before we have to have any big debate about it that I support 100% cis people rioting and burning buildings in the name of trans rights, and also you don't have to listen to any trans person who tells you NOT to burn buildings, loot, &c, they don't count.
please cite this post freely if anyone tells you not to riot and burn buildings for my right to healthcare :) also, make sure anything you loot goes to the most vulnerable people in your community please!
This month, Bernie endorsed a man whose solution to police violence is “shoot them in the leg.” AOC passed around cop propaganda about “outside agitators.” Only Kshama Sawant — who is still busy organizing tenants on rent strike — has truly and unconditionally stood up
