FYI: Capitalizing sentiments like ‘For ME’ and ‘In MY opinion’ does not give a pass to your privilege, hegemony, racism, homo/transphobia, etc. Nor does it shield you from being called out. It just lets folk know that YOU like to yell as YOU projectile vomit your bigotry. #AsYouWere

So let me get this straight. We get pets like dogs and cats (who are naturally outdoor animals) then try and domesticate them by spaying, neutering, and declawing them because who they are naturally is an inconvenience? Oh OK. So how would you like it if someone put you under and you woke up with no fingernails, or a blocked reproductive system? Talk about power and domination for the sake of convenience!

I am in a number of FB groups. Some I’m more active in than others. Some of these groups are primarily queer/trans, some aren’t. Within the queer/trans groups, I notice a prevailing theme of superimposed norms from cis/straight communities onto queer communities around how we treat femininity and masculinity. We eroticize and sexualize and all but worship the feminine and we posture and vilify and demonize the masculine. I also notice that many feminine beings take issue with trans masculine energy in a way that is hurtful as if we are the embodiment of all things masculine and bad. As if we embody male rapists, molesters and sexual predators. Or fathers who have abandoned their feminine children. I notice a machismo and performativity and posturing of masculinity as well. Is this our only option for masculinity? I wish we would pay more attention and try not to do these things. Or perhaps those are the breaks when females choose to overtly consume masculinity.

I am beyond over able-bodied folk using examples of “accomplished” lesser able-bodied folk as reasons able-bodied folk have ‘no excuse’ for getting things done. It’s insulting. It’s hegemonic. It’s silencing. It’s mismanagement of power. It should stop. Like yesterday. Your “should do” should not be bounced off anyone but you. #Cease&Desist #ExitStageRight #TakeEveryAvailableSeat

So let me get this straight. Folk believe that Jesus was born of a virgin woman and that sin entered the world because a woman tempted a man to eat a forbidden fruit yet don’t believe when folk say they see ghosts or communicate with other spirit realms? Oh OK. Makes perfect sense. #RandomObservations

The look on the girls’ faces when they lookin cause they think you a fine ass dude, then they look a bit deeper and see the hips, ass, boob imprint. And they don’t turn away. Quite the opposite. they look longer and longingly. Yeah girl. I see you. #TheLifeOfABoi

The gruesomeness behind the murders of trans women lends me to believe that there is something pathological behind them. Something self-loathing. Something that reflects the patriarchy and negative space within masculinity that undergirds our societies. It’s one thing to kill. Its something altogether different to stab repeatedly and chop a body into pieces. Yes males typically commit suicide and murder “more violently”. With that in consideration, I struggle to see the “how” of these murders outside of pathology and internalized hatred..self-hatred. If this was simply about being duped, we would also see murders of trans men by cis-gender females where trans guys dont “disclose”. This is deeper. This is about masculinity and who is/is not allowed to consume it and choose to relinquish it. #RandomObservations

Adults have way too many unreasonable expectations for kids and are often pretty unfair. Kids are often silenced. Their thoughts are often minimized or not taken seriously. And we often expect them to do/not do things that even we can’t do! We get moody. They get moody. We get irritable. They get irritable. They get hot. We get hot. They have bad days. We have bad days. So why do we expect them toalways be good? And the only thing about them is that depending on their age, all they can do is cry to communicate. I see a lot of parents chastising kids for having very human emotions. They’re not designed to just sit down and shut up! OMG!! They’re fully functioning humans. Not miniature adults! ‪#‎Venting‬‪#‎DefendingAgeistShyt‬

I find it really interesting that folk acknowledge the existence of homophobia, trans phobia, patriarchy, racism, sexism, classism, hegemony, etc, yet don’t nobody NEVA wanna admit to being homophobic, transphobic, patriarchal, sexist, hegemonic, etc. The amazing human tendency to engage deeply with separatism. #ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmmm
