trangst:

okay but imagine what kind of affect cis people playing the roles of trans people has on trans people who are trying to figure out their identity. imagine all the trans girls who are seeing trans women being played by what the whole world is trying to tell them they are — cis men. that shit is so harmful.

Well I think I’ve come across the worst person on Twitter. Eric Alderman is harassing multiple people, including gradientlair who has asked her followers to report him. I hope by the time you see this, his account is gone.

his account isn’t gone, let’s change that.

Monica Jones by Micah Bazant

Monica Jones is a trans activist and sex worker rights advocate who lives in Phoenix; she is also a student at ASU who recently gained entrance into the university’s School of Social Work.
During the Project ROSE stings in May 2013, Monica spoke at a community event protesting Project ROSE. The next evening, as the Project ROSE stings continued, police arbitrarily arrested Monica and charged her with violating a vague anti-prostitution statute. Monica is standing up for her rights in court and her trial date is on March 14, 2014. It is of the utmost importance that we stand in support of Monica and all others whose human rights are being violated by the police and prison system with the support of programs like Project ROSE. Ultimately, we must get Project ROSE’s mass arrest program off the streets of Phoenix and bring an end to police harassment and profiling everywhere.
Since her arrest, Monica and others have continued to protest Project Rose. As a trans woman of color, Monica has been especially ssingled out for police harassment. Police have approached her three times when she’s been near her home or walking around Phoenix, and the most recent time she was handcuffed again and under suspicion of “manifestation”. Monica’s case proves that Project ROSE is harmful.

Each of these people have been violent toward trans women. If you are not a trans woman and you follow them, reblog from them, or even see them on your dash and keep scrolling because you want to stay out of it, you are a transmisogynist, too.

Please add more as you see them. They depend on your silence.

"terfs are incapable of oppressing trans women!!!!" lol

lmfao @  trans exclusionary radical feminists saying “why are you so mad at us go be mad at the men who physically attack you instead. we just theoretically dont want you to exist”

its like wow yeah it’s very harmless when you actively try to “morally mandate [transgender people] out of existence” through cool and awesome nonviolent means like completely fictionalizing inflammatory accounts of children being uncomfortable around their transgender peers [1] and feeding them to [2] extremist christian news sources [3], the daily mail [4] and fox news to try and propagandize the panicked opposition to lawmaking efforts [5] that would decriminalize the existence of transgender people and increase safety for trans people, including students and children [6]

like hahaa yeah the way you intentionally lie to attack the safety of children is really harmless!!!! i love how radical feminists expose children to potentially violent situations [7] and make them want to kill themselves in order to further their own political aims!! [8]

i also love it when radical feminists call the workplaces [9] and health care providers [10] of trans people to try and financially attack them or prevent them from having access to medicine!! it makes me very happy when radical feminists try and use institutionalized police harassment as a tool to ruin the lives of alienated transgender sex workers [11] thats very cool and nonviolent as well :)

i should totally not be angry about how you try to hurt kids man!!! because you only support the harm of children in the coolest and most modern ways that are definitely way more acceptable in our society!! i would say you attack the safety of children in possibly THE most modern way and i do respect your openly expressed desire to place your theoretical gender politics above the safety of children!!!

its SO GREAT AND HARMLESS that terfs try to contextualize their violence against trans people in ways that society might deem more acceptable!!!! i love how you try to hide your manipulative and abusive behavior behind a veil of theoretical politics its very cute and loveable!! because when you intentionally try to conceal the harm you’re doing people are less likely to oppose you which is great!!! its almost like you’re not actively trying to destroy people’s lives!!! let’s all shut up so trans exclusionary radical feminists can attack the existence of women and children!!! because it’s harmless and that’s what they love to do!!

Yes, Cathy Brennan is very much real.

Oh, you mean like siding with the anti-gay “religious freedom” crowd?

Or actively taking sides against the Southern Poverty Law Center with anti-gay religious groups?

Or pretty much being the supportive mouthpiece for an anti-gay group that endorses gay conversion therapy in a nationwide witch hunt for a teenage trans girl in which TERFs and their supportive religious right allies harrassed her to the point of being on suicide watch:


Yep.

It does not matter if biology claims trans women are males.
Biology is not concerned with the violence done to people. Biology is not a shield to do violence to people, and indeed, the admittedly flawed models of colloquial biology often cited against trans women have also been used to justify and make excuses for violence against minority populations in oppressive systems.
Violence is still violence.
It is still immoral, still unethical, and defending it is immoral and unethical.
Psychology, sociology, anthropology, physiology, medicine — these sciences have all proven that calling a trans woman a man is violence.
So it doesn’t matter if biology says male when biology, itself, is being violent, according to other sciences.
Because that violence is still violence.
Violence is not limited to broken bones and bruised flesh and physical damage visible to the seeing (an ableist concept itself, so compounding the violence there).
It is words. Ask those fleeing persecution, read history, talk to survivors of child abuse and domestic violence and prison violence. Words are just as physically damaging - and according to many measures more so, since the brain treats those words no differently than it treats the body blows. It sends the chemicals out to the flesh and the organs and it sears synapses and it lasts long after the bruises and the broken bones have mended.
It has physical, measurable consequence, and it endures and we know that this applies even when it is strangers. The science establishes it.
This is fact. Not opinion.
Calling a trans woman a man is an act of violence, an assault, and those who do so are being violent, are being immoral, are being unethical. Silence in the face of violence is complicity, especially when that violence is social. Defense of calling a trans woman a man is defending violence.
Liking it, re blogging it without calling it out, these are forms of complicity. If you cannot tolerate violence against a woman, yet you can against a trans woman, who is also a woman, what sort of a person does this make you? What sorts of lessons are you teaching? How can you only oppose violence against some women?
Name it what it is. Don’t dress it up, don’t reduce it, it is violence. It is unethical. It is immoral. Shame those who do it, teach them it is wrong.
Because not doing so means you are complicit, means you are supporting, means you are not trying to stop violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and even straight people.
It means you are not trying to stop violence against people of color, against immigrants, against the disabled, against the poor.
It means you are standing by watching as someone does violence to another person. And that is immoral, unethical, and shameful.
Regarding why trans people say they have always felt like x or y, what they are trying to express in colloquial and layman’s terms is the concept of gender identity, now more commonly referred to as either social sex identity and physical sex identity, which it two concepts, each distinct.
Roughly translated, the whole thing means that a Trans person is aware that they are a woman, man, both, or neither, at the same core level as they are aware of themselves as a person, distinct from other people.
Some people would prefer to argue that what this is suggesting is that there is a “brain sex” — and yet, that’s not what this is describing. It is describing a sense of self-awareness — which, while decidedly part of the brain’s physiology, is really part of the existential notion that one exists, and therefore is not part of that argument, nor even related directly to biological systems (though many studies indicate such, I’m not going to reference such as biological essentialism of that sort is somewhat contrary to existential systems such as Transcentrism).
What that means, as well, is that this description has nothing whatsoever to do with biology, and, therefore arguments about biology aren’t valid when contradicting it. It would be akin to saying that the United States army shouldn’t exist because of broccoli.
This all comes together in the core aspect here: like sexual orientation, this is part of what creates the sense of self in people, and it therefore is part of how they know that they exist as an individual human being, and is a part of that.
So the same question of how you know can be answered in as many different ways as there are people, and it is the still same way that those asking the question know what their social sex identity is.
This effectively makes it the trans version of the question “how do you know you are gay?”, with the same accurate answer “I just do, because I know I exist.”
The answer may not satisfy those seeking some sort of concrete answer, but it is inevitable that they themselves, will discount any answer because for them the same question remains unanswered in a way they would accept from a trans person, usually due to cis privilege.

Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor.

"Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)
by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender

i was a little unclear on it bc i was half-listening but she made fun of someone by saying they looked like a man impersonating a woman  .. i THINK

She made a joke about seeing the best Liza Minnelli impersonator ever…it was Liza Minnelli…& called her “sir”.

So … basically Ellen was simulating a situation where she was reading/clocking a trans woman? And then misgendering her very publicly, which would be triggering as fuck?
