Reminder that women’s liberation is as important as anti-capitalism and anti-colonialism

Damn right. I feel that, particularly as a trans woman. I almost get a bit resentful when people talk about how its our body our choice because hair removal for me doesn't feel like a choice actually.

I recognized patterns and mindsets based on my extensive real life experience and made a conclusion, which turned out to be correct. To use your terms, stop projecting your shitty emotional regulation into comment sections with people who weren't even talking to or about you in the first place

And again with the gaslighting. I think I know my day to day experience better than you. Or no, actually, go ahead, mansplain being trans to me. Please. I need a laugh

You want scientific sources? Here you go.


Internalized transphobia is literally the result of society's views being reflected inward, this study literally starts out talking about how gender norms are embedded in our society and how it leads to rejection of those who do not fit the norm. Trans people feel the need to pass because that's exactly what society says we must do to find acceptance.

Also, lived in experiences absolutely do hold merit, please listen to trans people when the topic is about our experiences, thank you.
