Here’s all the stories I wanted to write about but didn’t have the time to.

[TW: Violence against trans women]

Apr 3

We don’t need to be repeating in the African American community what we have observed being aimed at white transwomen for decades in terms of the rabid transphobic hate from rad fems, fundies, GL people and the scientifically illiterate transphobic cis masses.

We don’t need to have our academics espousing ignorant psychobabble like autogynephilia. We also need more of our clergy and legacy civil rights organizations getting on board with helping us not only stopping anti-trans violence aimed at our community, but helping us push trans human rights laws through.

Our African descended cis community must be an example to others in how to treat their trans populations with dignity and respect. We need that to happen so that we can do our part to uplift the African American community.

This is a video made by Trans in Action, a transgender activist group I am affiliated with, showing how trans women (particularly trans women of color) are depicted in the media (spoiler alert: negatively).

Needless to say, those triggered by transphobia or use of the t-word probably shouldn’t watch.
