We need labels because we do not want to be overridden by the default. And that includes labels for the default, instead of allowing people to insist that they are the norm and thus don’t need a label. Hence all the brouhaha over ‘cis,’ a term used to describe people who have a gender consistent with that assigned to them at birth. It’s perfectly reasonable to label those people, distinguishing them from trans people, who have genders that differ from those assigned to them at birth. Both groups of people need to be identified.

*NEWS FLASH*

trans people don’t have to be ‘passing’ to be valuable

trans people do not have to adhere to heteronormative standards of beauty to be valuable

trans people don’t have to look any certain way to be the gender that they are

and if you hold trans people to any sort of beauty standard, may you live long and never prosper

My baby Zodi… she isn’t actually a baby she just has a lot of anxiety and trims off her feathers.  But I love her little fuzzy butt all the same.

comfemgem:

Referring to a person as either “biologically male” or “biologically female” is just as cissexist and socially constructed as assigning someone’s gender based on the same.

People who identify as female have female bodies, people who identify as male have male bodies, non binary people have non binary bodies.

Yup.

things that are sex shaming -

  • "she’s a sl-t for having all that sex"
  • "girls shouldn’t wear tank tops to school because it is distracting"
  • "that skin tight dress means she’s asking for it"
things that are not sex shaming -
  • "I would prefer to not see a stranger’s butt"
  • "I do not want to hear explicit details about your sex life"
there’s a difference between sex shaming and wanting sexual security

It’s kinda sad we have explain these things, but here we are

Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.
