you don’t get to ignore the kids with violent impulses when you’re talking about mental illness
we are not the extremes. we do not deserve to be shunted off to the side, hidden behind your bullshit respectability politics. we exist, and we are not unworthy of your support and attention.
it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men.
and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.
I’m a big bad trans and I’m here to oppress the CIS
youre a 10 and i look like im 10
the praxis that cat publicly argued for was for everyone to become non-men, so transitioning TO manhood was anathema to all that she stood for and it showed. I found her take on trans maleness hostile, irresponsible, and utterly lacking in pragmatism
since she needed to reconcile a free and open concept of transness with her distaste for FTM transition, she pleaded with questioning AFAB people either to settle for nonbinariness, or more bizarrely, to embrace a form of AFAB trans womanhood (an incoherent category, in my view)
"don’t be a dude" is unreasonable praxis on so many levels. much more valuable is "don’t embrace those toxic behaviours which our society inappropriately conflates with dudeness". the latter is advice that I think ought to be considered by all men, trans or cis, as well as nonbinary or bigender folks like myself who are not fully removed from maleness
LOOK AT THIS CHICKEN GO
