when i say it, i still mean it…

i want us all to be strong and free.
this means no cis policing of our identities
and as importantly, no trans/genderqueer-on-trans/genderqueer policing of our identities, and also no more minimizing other trans/genderqueer people for being different from you, no matter what the provided “excuse” is.

if you want to be part of our movement, you must respect that when it comes to my body means i get to make my rules and that my life is my life. no surgery policing, no sexual orientation policing, no use of shame as a compliance or exclusion tool. no unsolicited “passing tips” which are really judgments on someone’s validity. no more “some trans people are more equal than others.” easy peasy, folks: my body, my rules, my life.

if you don’t want to be part of it, keep supporting institutions that don’t include all trans people, keep making excuses for why they keep some trans people out (hint: fatphobia, racism, ableism, classism, and transmisogyny are not valid reasons), keep being the handmaiden of our own demise, and keep selling us out to cis people while deriding the choices of other trans folks. i wish you luck in continuing to appease the oppressor; do tell me how that’s working out for you given that it’s never worked in the past.
