(not funny at all)
thing about the ‘stigma’ guys allegedly deal with for dating trans women
is a stigma written on our bodies.
their desire is shameful
because we are shame
their desire is grotesque
because we are monsters
the day we are human
is the day you won’t feel shame anymore
and we are killed for their desire.
sometimes we are killed by their desire
the reason members of oppressed groups speak out loudly and sometimes aggressively against their oppressors on tumblr is because it’s probably the only time in their life they’ve been able to do so without fearing they’ll be attacked or forced to stop please understand that

be really, really careful about going on hormones though, they are SERIOUS things and will alter your body and risk of causing more dysphoria down the road if you didn’t suffer from any body dysphoria. experiment with expression and pronouns instead.
I try not to tell anyone what they should or should not do with their own hormones, because “should” is always an opinion and my opinion isn’t relevant to everyone. I tend to assume that people are already aware that hormones are a big choice to make and that they can make their own decisions about it. All I can do is provide information, such as the fact that many people DO experiment with hormones in that way.
The people I personally know who have experimented with hormones have all been happy with their results. There are others I’ve heard about who later decided to go off hormones and did not like their results, and yes, it did cause them dysphoria.
But if even if the individual cannot predict this about theirself, I am not going to preemptively assume the worst about anyone’s outcome when I have no idea what it will be.

Anonymous asked: Why do you dislike Lady Gaga ('s music)?
Well, the musical style of her latest album just rubbed me wrong. But personal tastes aside, her work includes racist words, bullshit notions of gender, and other really problematic content. If you’re interested to know more, google search for something like Lady Gaga + racism/appropriation and see what you get.
Anonymous asked: Hi! I have a question that has been bothering me for a while. How do I know if I am a trans* person, or if I have just internalized so much misogyny that my sense of self-worth makes me try to reject my cis womanhood? (My apologies if the wording comes off as offensive somehow. English is not my first language.)
This is something I’ve been thinking about for five years now. I’ve often heard people say “I can’t tell if I’m [gender] or if it’s just that I hate what it means to be [other gender].” I know cis people who harbored such internalized hatred about their genders that there were points in their lives during which they would have been misinterpreted as trans* by many people. I have also known trans* people (myself included) who really liked and enjoyed many aspects of their assigned genders.
The only way I’m aware of to work out what’s going on for you is to try experimenting and see how you feel. I’ve known a lot of people who went on hormones as an experiment—“I’ll just start estrogen/testosterone and see how I feel about it.” I’ve known people who have experimented with new clothes, names, and pronouns for the same reason. These are valid things to do if you feel an interest in trying.
Anonymous asked: Science question. Female brains left and right hemispheres are better at communicating with each other than male brains, this is why females are generally better at multitasking. Do trans* peoples brains follow their sex or gender when it comes to left/right brain communication? (Sorry if I phrased it wrong, I'm learning about how male brains earn differently than female brains and was curious)
What in the fuck is a “male” or “female” brain or a “trans” brain I mean how is that even defined????? Just no what why
Protip: anybody who uses language like “male brains” and says they function differently from “female brains” is a cissexist douchebag, probably misogynist as hell, and has no idea what they’re talking about. Hormones and genetics do influence the structure and function of the brain, yes, but so does enculturation. Hormones and genetics also vary so wildly within the categories of “male”, “female”, and “trans” that there’s no such thing as a brain that matches any of those types. You can reasonably talk about brains which are influenced by the long-term presence (or absence) of estrogen or testosterone, or which have been structurally altered by social training, but nothing else.
