(Oh, you know an opinion’s gonna be good if the trans* flag is used as the image.)
Okay, you know what? I’m done with being nice. I’m done with trying to coax peace and common sense out of others. I don’t want to hurt anyone, it’s never been my intention, and this will be rather uncharacteristic of me to say. But somebody has to say it.
First, let it be known that I am trans* and gay. I am pretty much as far from “cishet” as possible.
That being said, if you are trans* or non-binary and you harbor an adamant hatred of cis people, you need to fuck right off.
Grow the fuck up, already. You are contributing absolutely nothing to our community. All you are doing is spreading the notion of hatred and violence, and you are digging us into a pit deeper than ever before. I am ashamed to be connected to you in any possible way. I am ashamed when you tell perfectly innocent human beings that they are scum and that they should kill themselves. You fucking sicken me. You are in no way better than your oppressors. Not a bone in your body is better than them just because you’re non-binary.
What possibly makes me the angriest is that, because of you, cis people think that “cis” is an insult. Do you see what you’ve done? As a trans* person, the word “cis” is so important to me. It’s important in the way that it negates the sense that cis is “normal” and that I am not. It brings cis and trans* people down onto the same level and it makes us equal. But because of you hateful fucks, cis people are outraged and vehemently denying the label. Thanks a lot. That’s quite a bit of good you’re doing, isn’t it?
You people are cruel, you are violent, you are giving all of us a horrible name on Tumblr. You are teaching children that it is perfectly okay to bully someone because of their gender identity and sexuality. I have seen very young teenagers spewing your “die cis scum” bullshit on this website, and it disgusts me that the next generation is getting dragged into this as if it’s okay.
Cis friends, please just know that I’ve never in my life met a trans* or non-binary person who actually thinks this way. Please realize that. It’s literally just Tumblr.
I can only hope to god that this ridiculous trend doesn’t spread any farther than this godforsaken website.
