tw: racism, transphobia
“The other night me and a couple of my friends went out to have a good time and there’s this young thing. I call her a thing because you know I don’t know how to tip toe around gender rules or queer politics. I’m 30 years old rich and famous - I don’t have to deal with that shit anymore. So we’ll just call him “him/her/thing” and you know she just finds my shows offensive… so anyway she got upset that I paint myself brown, that I would use language that she found offensive.”
Sharon Needles, everyone. Unapologetic racist and cissexist.
REBLOG JUST BECAUSE.
Alright I don’t know how anyone can defend her Nor do I want to know. This is the last thing I’ll post about her I swear.
Anna Grodzka, Poland’s first openly transgender MP, taking the oath of office last year. She is also currently the only openly transgender MP in the world.
Kill me now. this “woman” took my last name. spadaj kobieto…
I’m sure she’d be embarrassed by you, too.
You need to get over your prejudice. And she didn’t “take” your last name; that doesn’t even make sense.
I’m pretty sure that there are much “worse” people with ‘your’ last name, you fucking blight of this earth.
[TRIGGER WARNING TRANSMISOGYNIST SLURS AND ASDFASDFASFDSADF] Perhaps I’m a transphobic bigot, but I honestly think waiting a measly 36 months to cut your dick is a sacrifice any father should be willing to make for his 15-year-old son. Call me old-fashioned. Unfortunately, your ex wasn’t willing to make that sacrifice (selfish tranny!), or it never occurred to him to make that sacrifice (stupid tranny!).
Tell me, anyone, has he ever apologized and taken back what he said? Anyone? Bueller…?
OH HAI DAN SAVAGE. YES, YOU ARE A BIGOT. THANK YOU FOR ADMITTING TO THAT.
Dan Savage does not represent the queer community and he needs to go
Can he be exiled or am I just dreaming too big?
[Image Description: Image is a comic of four panels, arranged in two rows of two. At the top of the page it says, “I’d had people ask me,” and is followed by two panels, which show a somewhat androgynous guy with loose clothing and short, shaggy hair. In the first panel he is looking to his left almost curiously, from whence is coming a speech bubble which says, “ma’am.” The next panel shows him looking angry, with his shoulders hunched and a collection of symbols meant to symbolise a profane word above his head, as he is surrounded by more speech bubbles saying: “yes ma’am,” “miss,” “she,” “hey ladies,” “so you still have a vagina, right?”, and “her.” These two are followed by the line, “why a lot of trans* folk.” The next, and third, panel shows the same person with their hands over their ears, a large profane word above their heads, as the rest of the space in the panel is completely taken up by similar speech bubbles, inquiring after physical status, birth name, trans erasure, and cissexism. The last panel shows the same person in an angry stance, glaring at someone standing to the viewer’s right, with “FUCK YOU” written in large letters above their head. The other person is looking at them disdainfully, arms crossed, and is saying, “why are you so sensitive? That’s no way to earn allies.” At the bottom, below all of the panels, it says, “are so angry all the time,” so that the entire text outside of the panels themselves say “I’d had people ask me why a lot of trans* folk are so angry all the time.”]
Look I’m all for education but it’s just a little difficult to keep your cool when your hackles are constantly up over this kinda thing.
Even had this within the GLBTQ community (was talking to a guy on Thursday and I mentioned how my family had the whole GLBTQ in it, he asked “You have a trans person in your family?” I told him “yes, me.” Then he asked, “Oh! So which way are you going?”).
And at queer prom the reporter asked “So, you’re lesbian, right?” right after I said my name was Andrew.
HEY DIDN’T THIS HAPPEN YESTERDAY WHERE I SAID I COULD HELP SOMEONE UNDERSTAND WHAT TRANS MEANS AND THEY REPLIED ‘YOU HAVE A PENIS’
AND THEN REFUSED TO LEARN
I wish I would witness anything like this. They’ll be shocked as hell when I actually slap them.
Dan Savage is a bully, a hypocrite, and CERTAINLY not someone to be hailed as a hero.
Woah, when did he say that? I’m not denying he did, but, wtf? D:
That’s what he said about ace people. He’s also said a lot of shitty things about bisexuals (e.g. here) and trans* folks (some on that here and here) and others in the community. He’s also said a lot of racist shit (he repeatedly blamed POC for the passage of Prop 8 in California), he’s said fat shaming things, and when people asked him to stop using “retarded” in a derogatory way, he made a joke of it. So much for being against bullying.
He’s generally just a really shitty person, imo.
Finally, a post from the-unpopular-opinions that I actually agree with.
Going to find Dan Savage and roundhouse kick him in the face.
