Attitudes like what you present are why ‘die cis scum’ has swept the trans community. Attitudes like what you present are the root cause of our distrust of cis people.
Beliefs like the ones you hold have led to the deaths of thousands of trans people. This is not some intellectual exercise in a gender studies class. This is our lived experience. This is a genocide of my people.
You’re in your late teens to early 20’s and white, right? ‘Cause it’s either that or you’re my mother’s generation and think you are owed respect. Respect is earned.
I love and support my cis allies. Those that are true allies love and support me. But those cis people that hate me, I welcome their hate. They are hateful scum. Those are who we speak of when we say ‘Die Cis Scum’. Only cis scum have anything to fear from that statement.
God, shit like this makes me really wary of identifying as a radical feminist (as in “roots” - as in, hey OP, misogyny is one of the “roots” of transphobia).
Also, can I just point out that the OP genders trans women incorrectly (“man who tags pictures of his penis…”) but seems to do fine with trans men (“For every man who says that he also gets a period…”)? I wonder if that’s significant.
