In the Grand Canyon state, “walking while trans” may very well be a criminal act.
That was the message sent last Friday by the Phoenix judge who convicted transwoman Monica Jones of “manifesting prostitution” following her arrest by undercover police officers in May of 2013.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
i want to like this post but its 2014 and you people are still juxtaposing “being a woman” with “being able to get pregnant”
oh come the fuck on
gee sorry if being exposed to transphobia and being told my genitals dictate my gender every fucking day of my life gives me the urge to stand up for myself sometimes, you’re right, i should just sit and take it while cis people run the show
what are you even doing on a feminist post anyways, you clearly shouldn’t be here
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
After one parent complained, the school told a substitute teacher to not return as she was a ‘distraction’ in the classroom
behold, it is i, the evil social justice warrior, here to ruin your fun by pointing out that you’re being kind of an asshole
oh don’t act so innocent, the social justice bloggers are the meanest people on this website and the most likely to dox people so don’t sit there and act like all you do is “point things out”
yes, the social justice bloggers are the meanest people on tumblr dot com. not the white supremacists and nazis and rapists and transphobes. it’s those those god damn marginalized people that called me a cishet once, they are the Real Enemy.
Are you kidding me? Apparently Neil Pattrick Harris is slated to play a transwoman in an upcoming Broadway play.
Jesus. Christ. Don’t they understand that we exist and can play the role better, and more true to life?!
WHY ARE CIS MEN STILL GETTING TRANS WOMAN ROLES
AT THE VERY LEAST GIVE THE ROLE TO A CIS WOMAN BECAUSE WE ARE WOMEN
The average person was a 1 in 18,000 chance of being murdered.
If the person is trans, that chance turns into 1 in 12 chance of being murdered.
Think about that for a moment.
How disgusting is it, how disappointing is it,
how monstrous is it that being a trans person makes you more than 1000 times more likely to be killed
Seriously I can’t even string together enough words to represent how utterly abominable that is
1 in 8 for the brown girls
A report from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey conducted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality, found that transgender people faced double the rate of unemployment of the general population, with 63 percent of the transgender people surveyed reporting they experienced a serious act of discrimination that majorly affected their ability to sustain themselves. These numbers are even worse for trans people of color, especially trans women of color, the deaths of whom have been deemed a “state of emergency.”
Trans women have been saddled with the responsibility of taking on trans-exclusionary feminists for far too long—but it’s not their issue to deal with alone.
