princessgorgon asked: I'm a trans woman and I abhor being objectified. I blend well as a cis woman, and I hate being ogled or written off by dudes. It's fucking rancid.

Shocking, isn’t it, how actually crappy it is to be a woman

why would it be shocking

I’ve literally always been one :t

Yeah, how is this supposed to be shocking? It’s not like trans girls get sent off to special private schools where they don’t tell you “Girls are bad at everything” or “Girls need to be sweet and kind and defer to men.” It’s not like we don’t pick up the message that we’re less valid as women because the world keeps telling us that women are only worthwhile if they look one particular way. I’ve known being a girl in the modern world is a crappy situation ever since I spent childhood being yelled at and hit and ostracized for being a girl.

Ok, I’ve come to the conclusion that you’ve lost your grip on reality and are beyond help. Seeya. Good luck, whatever, just don’t go jumping off any buildings because you think you can fly.

Delicately-Interconnected would rather ignore the input of real trans people, and only listens to vague theories and imaginary trans people, and yet I’m somehow the one completely out of touch with reality? Her whole front page is currently filled with trans women and trans men telling her she doesn’t understand some basic concepts about trans childhood, but she’d rather dismiss real people in favor of her notion that all AFAB children are reared the exact same way, and that only that one true childhood makes anybody a woman.

“If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.”

— From my latest at the Guardian, When you call a rape anything but rape, you are just making excuses for rapists (via jessicavalenti)
