Ah, yes. A peek into our hell realm.
Trans women have knowledge of what men act like when they think there are no women around.
In another social environment, this is the assumed default, too.
Online video games.
While their behaviour there is not exactly the same as it is in person… Try playing some games with chat functions, especially the more ‘masculine’ ones. Don’t say anything and let them assume you’re a guy. Listen to what they say about women.
I will let in the wisdom from people who do not know how to love trans women and put it right here.
Here is a get out of paradox free card.
Just being yourself is a service to this world. And a service to those around you. There is nothing you have to do, there is no task that will make you worthwhile. Because you. Are. It is you being yourself that is most important to me about your existence. Everything else follows, we all create waves we don’t understand. You don’t need to do anything to be helping. Your help is a process of becoming yourself. As we become ourselves we do things we do not even realize. Trust you, love you (if you want to.)
Those of you I interact with here are giving of a part of yourself, and I see that.
That feel where someone is right about my healing journey and what it will take but I’m reluctant to admit that explicitly to her because my silence is saying “you’re a transmisogynist and you need to work that out.” and I want it to keep saying that so silence will have to do?
*breaks web brand again* oh no, it was just brought to my attention that Conor Oberst AKA Bright Eyes was accused of sexual assault? Fuck. I think I tried to black that out.
Practice By Using the Following Phrases When the Opportunity Arrises:
"I’m not interested."
"(Please) Leave me alone."
"I’d rather you not."
"That doesn’t interest me at all."
"You need to stop."
"That’s not what I said."
"I would like some privacy."
*immediately breaks web-brand*
So Conor Oberst is definitely an AMAB trans person. We all agree on this, right?
I want this blog to be a place of love. I will do my best to focus it even more to be that. I don’t want to come here and blather random things. I want this specifically to be a place where sisters can go and know they are in a space meant for them and where they can feel safe.
