The way the (white) queer community worships Boys Don’t Cry while most of them have never even seen A Girl Like Me
one is an indie film that portrays its main character as a white trans man (even tho Brandon Teena was mixed Native), one is a for-tv movie that portrays its main character as a Latina trans woman
ignoring the story of a trans woman of color whose family was supportive of her so you can keep your narratives. holding up the story of white-passing trans man (and white-washing him in the process) when he was one drop compared to the amount of violence faced by trans women of color.
seriously it makes me really upset.
What I said was unforgivable, and disgraceful. It is really out of character for me. I feel awful for what I led you to. This is not an excuse: I had a bad day plus was getting ton of hate on tumblr and your were the easiest target. No where was it right and I should have never said it. I have nothing against transgendered people, I support it. I can’t message you on my phone but, I am sorry and I think publically saying it world be the best. I am sorry
Fuck you and fuck your transphobia and fuck this bullshit apology.
You have no problem with “trangendered people”? You support “it”? TRANS* PEOPLE ARE NOT “IT“S. I AM NOT A FUCKING “IT”. GRYFFIN IS NOT A FUCKING “IT”.
Let me tell you something, you transphobic asshole. On my worst fucking days, there is absolutely no part of me that would deem it acceptable to call a person of color a racial slur, or a disabled person an ableist slur. Why? Because even on my worst days, there is no part of me that finds it acceptable to dehumanize another person. The fact that there is an obvious part of you that does find this acceptable should cause you to take a serious fucking look at yourself and your “I don’t trans* people!” bullshit.
People like you are the reason the phrase “Die cis scum” was invented.
Reblogging for the bolded, because it bears repeating now and forever. (The rest of the response is pretty epic too)
and the broadcaster says “…long before jennifer [aniston] became a household name, and cher’s girl decided to change her gender (emphasis, broadcaster) and shorten her name to Chaz.”
like, could you be ANY MORE OFFENSIVE OR HARMFUL, E!? do you think you could?
Here’s the video: “Jen Aniston and Chaz’s High School Pics” on Hulu.
