I'm a pansexual transguy trying to figure myself out. Expect a lot of information and pride going on. I am always happy to educate and learn.
Question: as I used the above terms to refer to penis-having/vagina-having (regardless of sex/gender identity/expression), what would be acceptable alternatives to use?
Generally? Just getting to the specific distinction that’s relevant for whatever’s being talked about. “People with x [penises/vaginas/clitorises/prostates/cervixes/testosterone- or estrogen-dominant hormone systems/etc.]”. “People who can x [e.g. get pregnant]”. More specific and accurate and thus useful (personally and scientifically), and better for talking about strictly biological matters rather than bringing in weird social assumptions tying together gender and common body configurations by accident or convention.
I like this way better than “male/female-bodied”.

This is actually pretty important

Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.
if you’re straight, your opinion is not invalid, it just isn’t important in LGBT discussions and issues
if you’re white, your opinion is not invalid, it just isn’t important in POC discussions and issues
if you’re cis, your opinion is not invalid, it just isn’t important in trans (and non binary) discussions and issues
if you’re not a part of the battle, your opinion is not invalid, it just isn’t important compared to the opinions of those who are
- be thin
- give birth
- cook for you
- have long hair
- wear makeup
- have sex with you
- be feminine
- be graceful
- be fashionable
- wear pink
- love men
- be the media’s idea of perfection
- listen to your bullshit
- have a vagina
This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.
I’m not for abortion
I’m for every woman having the right to choose what to do with her own body
I’m for preventing the fear of what to do with a child that is unwanted or unplanned
I’m for protecting women from back-ally abortions because they have no other option.
thats why it’s called pro-choice, not pro-abortion
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

giving trans women roles to cis men
- robs trans women actors (who can’t get cis women roles) and gives those roles to cis men who already have an enormous amount of roles and opportunities
- reinforces the false idea that trans woman are somehow equivalent or analagous to cis men in costume
like really thats all there is to it. theres nothing you can say that justifies this practice
when the oppressed/minority is quiet or kind, the majority doesn’t go ‘well they are so sweet, we should give them rights.’
when that happens, the majority does not notice the oppressed. they become invisible.
that is why no minority is required to be nice or sweet- because they will be flies on a wall otherwise
You are real.
You are not alone.
Please never forget any of this.
just a reminder if you’re bored you can always answer some simple trivia and give rice to people in need.
and it’s absolutely free
when straight guys ask how lesbian sex works i feel really bad for their girlfriends because if you dont understand how to have sex with a girl in any way other than repeatedly putting your dick in her you are having some really bad sex
I want to reblog this 100 times but I’ll just do it once
