Re: An Alternate Masturbation Technique for Trans Women

Well damn.  Sorry if I came off looking uppity by the way.  I guess I wasn’t aware of the beginning of the conversation.  All I saw was what I reblogged.  I guess if the OP was being rude and that part was left out of the reblog I saw then my bad.  But if nothing was deleted then I’m super confused.  

As I said, check out the post history.

Why the hostility?! Jesus.  It seemed like they were just intrigued.  I didn’t get a 
“oooo this is kinky vibe” at all.  Maybe I’m wrong.  But I don’t see anything wrong with wanting to learn about someone else.  People complain when others are ignorant about their identity/gender/lack of gender/sexuality/ etc.so why get pissy when someone says they want to learn?

I already answered this back when the original exchange happened, check the post history. Long story short, the OP used exactly the kind of language that’s been used to exoticize trans people and put us under the scientific microscope. Whether intentional or not, those were the implications and they play into the greater power structure.
