An Incomplete List of Horrible People [TW: Cissexism, ableism]
This list is ever being expanded, so check back later for more hilarity/headdesk.
Excuse me, what? So having sexual preferences now equals “misinformed insecurities”? Yeah, good job attacking the vast majority of the Earth’s populace in one fell swoop.
And speaking of vast majorities, you might want to realize that the percentage of (legitimately) trans individuals is diminuitive, therefore people have EVERY RIGHT to assume that you’re cis, considering that such an assumption is bound to be right in the overwhelming majority of the cases. Transsexuality is an anomaly; you don’t have to like it, but you have to accept it.
So while I’m glad to see that “you recognize that trans people exist of their own volition and aren’t put on earth to cater to your misinformed insecurities”, you might also want to realize that cis people ALSO exist of their own volition, and are in no way obligated to go against their own sexual preferences to validate your shaky, insecure senses of self-identity and self-confidence.
Trans people are “diminutive”, therefore it’s okay to treat them like shit.
I’d personally be impressed with how well they pass if I made it that far without deducing it tbqh.
Cis people think being trans is a magic trick.
horrible horrible horrible disclosure is important unless you’ve entirely medically transitioned and have the proper set of genitals then who gives a fuck if you disclose or not because this is entirely about genitals
It’s not ‘misinformed insecurity’ to expect a certain set of genitals jfc
Trans people have improper genitals.
LMAO that last part.
USDA 100% choice idiocy. Can you even imagine that?
“I hope it doesn’t bother you that my genitalia is as predictable as 99% of the world’s population.”
People who are more common are allowed to treat everyone else like shit. People who are less common are “unpredictable” and therefore deserve the scorn of the majority.
Also, ableism tied to bad meat inspection.
I’m always torn about this, because there is a stereotype due to majority that if you have boobs, you have a vagina, and vice versa. I imagine (because I’m not) that a straight person would be considerably upset if they weren’t told ahead of time that they were sleeping with the same set of genitalia, or in whatever combination thereof, as much as I would be slightly upset that my gay partner had a vagina.
I’m not saying that I wouldn’t like that person, but I don’t think that I could hide surprise on my face considering that one of the base definitions of being gay is having two dicks in bed.
I just think if you’re going to be in a serious relationship with someone, that is eventually going to lead to the bedroom, there should some kind of settling in their head before you get there. If for no other reason than I think surprise, or shock, would be one of the last expressions you’d want your potential lover to wear while getting in the mood.
Cis people’s surprise and shock is more important than treating trans people like human beings. Gay means “two dicks in a bed”. From the mouths of babes.
this reminds me of that post from a little while ago that basically suggested if you jump into bed with someone only to find out they are trans then you are obligated to sleep with them or you’re cis scum and no just nope
A perfectly reasonable imaginary interpretation of what “cis scum” might mean in an alternate universe.
Can we please not pretend that biological sex is not a factor in how people are attracted to one another? I recognize that not everyone cares about genitalia, but I don’t expect to be treated like I’m batshit insane for finding out my girlfriend, while rather attractive, ends up having a dick, and then being drawn away from that.
We should not pretend biological sex is not a factor, and instead pretend that “biological sex” actually means something, and also pretend that cis people’s comfort is the most important thing on the planet. Also ableism tied to guano.
Reblogged as link because the original post is huge. I’m going to put some effort into this because I’m tired of people pulling the cissexism card when there are actually valid opinions…
Bigotry is a collectible card game.
I was with you until you said “the base definitions of being gay is having two dicks in bed.”
Trans* folks should absolutely tell people that they don’t have standard sex organs. In the same way that someone with a port wine stain or someone with vagina dentata should tell their partner before sex starts, disclosure is important.
But gay =/= two dicks, because not all men have dicks. Not that I’m saying you have to like things that aren’t dick, but don’t tell other gay men they’re less gay because their partner doesn’t have a dick.
Trans people have nonstandard sex organs, according to ISO 9000. Trans genitals are like a port wine stain, or a vagina with teeth in it. But don’t disrespect trans people by saying their genitals determine their identity, that’s just plain rude.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Are you freaking kidding me? Is is suddenly bigotry to want to know what kind of genitalia the person you’re about to sleep with has? What if a cis-male dressed like a woman to get with a lesbian woman who would have had no desire to sleep with him if she realized he was a man? Are you really suggesting people should force/trick other people into sexual orientations that our not their own?
Hypothetical cis male predators with convoluted evil schemes are more of a concern than respecting actual real-life trans people that exist and have lives and everything. Respecting trans people is just a ruse to trick cis people into changing their sexual orientation.
Believe it or not, there are many social justice warriors on tumblr who believe it is indeed bigotry to care if the person you’re having sex with has a vagina or a penis.
They believe that since a straight man is attracted to women, and a transwoman is a woman, he is a bigot for not being attracted to “her” penis. They’ve also held workshops on “Overcoming the cotton ceiling,” which is what they call it when lesbians don’t want to have sex with transwomen.
Another perfectly reasonable imaginary interpretation from an alternate dimension. These crop up a lot, did someone invent inter-dimensional portals and not tell me? Extra points for scare quoting pronouns.
Um actually if I were on a date with a hot lesbian and she took me home and was like “I want to have sex with you” and I was like “whoa okay” and she put a dick in me I probably wouldn’t hug her tightly and whisper to her as I wipe away a tear, “I’m so proud that you are comfortable enough with your own gender and sexuality that you didn’t even bother taking my own preferences into consideration because you realize that thinking of anyone other than yourself is marginalizing you as a beautiful trans* woman.”
Cis people don’t understand the difference between not being obligated to disclose trans status and having sex they don’t want to have.
But didn’t you know? Not being sexually attracted to someone is oppression! If you are only attracted to women, and a man puts on a dress, you HAVE to have sex with him or else you are a bigot and are exactly as evil as Adolf Hitler.
Cis people don’t know about Godwin’s Law. Or basic reading comprehension.
…op the only misinformed insecurity really going on here is the fact that you feel like you have to condescendingly kiss ass so I’m going to give you a nice lil tip and tell you to shut the fuck up…
Respecting trans people is condescendingly kissing ass.
Firstly, “legitimately trans” as in actually transsexual/transgender, not a “transtrender”, that is, some idiot tacking some oh-so-unique gender label on themselves so they can feel special. Face it or not, that IS an existing phenomenon.
And secondly, let me introduce you to a little thing called LOGIC. Here’s a scenario:
- I encounter someone apparently a woman
- If I assume she’s cis, I’m 99+% likely to be correct.
- If I assume she’s trans, I’m <1% likely to be correct.
- If I ask, the question will likely be taken as having some kind of implied meaning, seeing as by the above probabilities, it CAN be taken for obvious.
- Therefore I go by the most logically sound option and assume she’s cis.
And if your concept of a “decent human being” is one you can burden with your own problems as if they have some kinda obligation to deal with your shit, I don’t even want to be one. My issues are mine to deal with, yours (including the issues arising from your gender identity) are NOT.
Trans people’s identities are an issue, cis people’s identities are not. Because logic. Trans identity is a hip new trend taking the world by storm, and is also less than 1% of the population. At the same time.
