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)
[TW FOR ANTI-TRANS AND RACIST VIOLENCE AND HATE SPEECH]
SUPPORT CECE MCDONALD!
CeCe McDonald is a young African American transgender woman charged with “second degree murder” after an incident that began when she was violently attacked because of her gender and race.
DROP the charges and FREE CeCe!
CeCe is a creative and energetic person who, before her life was so unjustly interrupted, was studying fashion at MCTC. She had a stable home where she lived with and helped support four other African American youth, her family. CeCe’s family describes her as a leader, a role model, and a loyal friend. She is known as a wise, out-spoken, and welcoming person, with a cheerful disposition and a history of handling prejudice with amazing grace.
Around 12:30 am on June 5, CeCe and four of her friends (all of them black) were on their way to Cub Foods to get some food. As they walked past Schooner’s Bar in South Minneapolis, a man and two women (all of them white) began to yell epithets at them. They called CeCe and her friends ‘faggots,’ ‘niggers,’ and ‘chicks with dicks,’ amongst other things.
As they were shouting, one of the women smashed her drink into the side of CeCe’s face, slicing her cheek open, lacerating her salivary gland, and stinging her eyes with liquor. A fight ensued, with more people joining in. What happened during the fight is unclear, but within a few minutes Dean Schmitz–one of the attackers–had been stabbed.
CeCe was later arrested, and is now falsely accused of murder
For a month, CeCe was kept in solitary confinement “for her own protection”; she had no say in this matter. Finally, she was transferred to a psychiatric unit in the Public Safety Facility. It was nearly two months before she was taken back to a doctor to check up on the wound on her face, which by then had turned into a painful, golf ball-sized lump.
Later on, CeCe’s friends were harassed on the street by people they recognized from the scene of the fight. Individuals circled the block that CeCe’s friends were walking on and called them ‘niggers’ and ‘faggots’ and told them to ‘go back to Africa.’ When they attempted to wave down a passing squad car for assistance, the officer driving the car said he would not help them.
Help us fight for CeCe, and for an end to racist, transphobic violence in our communities! Visit our What You Can Do page and find out how to get involved.
