Why I hate transgender people right now
I stopped identifying as transgender because it just seems like a trap. It took all the courage you could muster as a gender liberated person, and all you want to…
Jealousy is a strong wording for it, but it comes down to wanting to be treated as something you are physically not and what someone else is. If we lived in a society where there was absolutely no prejudice and we could compare data to where we are now, someone would be “proven” wrong on this point. As of now though, its just posturing.
And you can NOT speak for every single trans person in existence. And I am sure what I said applies on some level to some of them. Notice I did not say ALL trans people would fit that description. Perhaps I should have phrased it “an appreciable amount of the time” instead of “most of the time”. Either way, you can not discredit some trans people because they do not fit your definition of “the perfect trans-person”. That is called discrimination.
Okay even recognizing gender as a social construct doesn’t mean gender isn’t important nor that it’s about gender roles. Look I’m sorry if you think I’m invalidating you, I really don’t even know what the “perfect trans” is, I’m gender fluid FYI you’re barking up the wrong tree since my gender isn’t recognized. That said, wanting to be treated like another gender sounds like internalized misogyny if you’re dfab and if you’re dmab it comes down to escaping the system set up by patriarchal values. You might want to examine yourself, keep questioning things and talk to someone. It’s not about gender roles, don’t make it so.
My theory on why I think you can be nb or trans without dysphoria? The binary is shit, humans have the capability to recognize more than two genders and if something clicks that isn’t your assigned gender, then at least you know you’re not cis.
I struggle with dysphoria and as a non binary person I already have issues with being recognized, please don’t make this about gender roles. Stfuok was on the right path and you unfairly jumped in with unneeded comments.
Don’t even start with STFUO being on any right path. That is just another tumblr personality looking to stroke its own ego. That account seems to exist to make unneeded comments.
And yes, for many it is about gender roles. Even if they will not admit it to themselves. The gender archetype is ingrained deeply in all of us weather you agree or not. Saying that your “gender identity” exists completely outside of that is nonsense. That is like saying that your health is independent of your body.
Those who identify as trans/NB modify the idea of gender to better fit themselves in their opinion. There is nothing wrong with that. But when one speaks about gender, and its use as a self defining trait, it always comes back to gender roles because of the large part they play in our conceptualization of the idea.
If any trans or NB person can give me a good answer as to why identify as such without a load of vague bullshit (religion or spirituality counts here) and referencing gender roles, you can slap me in the face with it.
Also, gender is binary for a pretty damned good reason BTW. I would give you a hint, but I am positive you already know why. Though I’m not even going to start in on that right now. I will just leave it as binary as seen through an blurred lens.
It’s mostly because of queer theory, basically the GLBT arm of radical feminism trying to co-opt dysphorics and make them Queer Qrusaders against gender roles, even if all they’re doing is being your average person who when there’s nothing going on socially is pretty damn neutral as far as roles are concerned. There’s a reason HBSers (now called truscum due to people forgetting things that are more than 2 years old) are and were a thing, and why they were pretty adamant about dysphoria being a huge criteria. Though they’re fighting against entirely different things, their sentiment is the same and still has fuck all to do with gender roles (dysphoria is what it means to be trans). So OP can kindly fuck themselves, and so can every queer theorist.
