sybilltrelawneys asked: although the point you made on the cisgender/transgender post is excellent, it should be noted that the original creator of that post considers themselves transgender, it's in their bio, so even though your point is relevant, it's a little harsh to presume (though we both know that everyone would presume that tbh)
Oh! Ok, my bad. I should’ve checked, thank you. I’ll ammend my post.
AND IF ANYONE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE THAT!!!!!! KICK THEM IN THE JUNK!!!!!! WHATEVER JUNK THEY HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! KICK ‘EM REALLY HARD!!!!!!!!!!
It’s also not bad to be heterosexual, male, white, abled, or born to affluence or influence. You have no control over the circumstance of your birth. It’s what you do with what you have that matters.
THANK YOU FRIEND I LIKE YOUR WORDS
So someone saw a transgender person complaining about cis people, right? Well, let me tell you something:
Of course there’s nothing wrong with being cisgender (or male, white, hetero, etc.etc.) Open a book, listen to a song, watch a movie, look out the window, go to the shop, go to school, talk to your parents, to your family, to your neighbour, read a magazine, and you’ll get the message that there is nothing wrong with being cis.
So please don’t complain if you go on tumblr and see on your dashboard that someone said “f*ck you cis people”, because the person who wrote that is being systematically oppressed, scorned, ignored, underrepresented, mocked, misunderstood, and emotionally and/or physically hurt almost every time they do any of the things listed above.
It’s ridiculous that you feel victimised and feel the need to defend yourself and assert your worth as a cis person when that’s the idea that we are getting from virtually anywhere. The fact that a transgender person said “cis people are sh*t” won’t make us ANY less privileged, so don’t worry. Don’t be upset because they need to express their frustration and anger towards the collective (and notice the word collective, it’s not something personal most of the time) that is hurting them 24/7. Don’t feel sorry for yourself because someone on the internet who is discriminated against all the time said something you don’t like, because you’re able to simply scroll down and continue having an oppression-free life. Instead of waving your cis pride flag, just try to understand why they said what they said, and don’t feel personally offended, because unless you are personally guilty of cissexism, their insult was most probably not directed to you.
EDIT: Ok, I was just informed that I made an assumption about the original poster and I was VERY wrong: he is not a victimist cissexual, he is, in fact, trans. I apologise for assuming otherwise. In any case, I still think that what I said abut cis victimism and cis pride is true.
son I think you are ready for the talk *opens harry potter and the philosopher stone book*
*finishes whole series of tv show*
*does extensive background search on the cast and follows them on all social media**Rewatches entire series again
I’ve just arranged all my coins heads up chronologically in hopes of seeing the effigy of the Queen age progressively from 1971 to 2013, but turns out they used the same face for many years. 40 years but only 3 different faces. Shame on you, British currency.
Also someone gave me 1 Thai baht instead of a 5p coin. hm…
