'then write one' is such a fucking shitty response to the desire for more representation in media
guess what? i write shit that i want to see in media all of the goddamn time
and eight thousand fucking notes on my post is proof i am not alone in this desire
people create these things all of the time
but they are kept quiet, their voices are taken and modified for the status quo
don’t ask us ‘to write one’
ask about what happened after we did and why you’ve never heard of it
When I was in the 3rd grade, I thought I was straight, because I live in a society where heterosexuality is assumed, outward characteristics are used as orientation indicators, and being queer is seen as a negative thing.

"how to describe men?"
WHOA look at this super funny post! Love the casual cissexism/transphobia! Good going Niels unfollovving! Loving this funny content!
WHOA look at this super sensitive post! Love the casual attention-grabbing that this is seeking! Good going charmancler! Loving this needy content!
The vast majority of men are those who have a penis. Every step that someone takes doesn’t have to try to include those who are trans. Yes, it’s important to be inclusive, but you shouldn’t get pissy because ONE person decided to go with the anatomically correct semi-definition of a man.
I’m sick and tired of the gay and trans community always feeling like they have to be mentioned at every turn. Make your presence known, it’s important for equality, but constantly shoving comments like this is unnecessary and irritating. Not everything is about the LGBT community, and not everything should be taken personally when it’s not explicitly mentioned. Lighten up.
WHOA look at this snarky transphobic/transmisogynist/cissexist/binarist post! Love the casual damage to to people’s identities and defending rigid, oppressive definitions of gender that misrepresent and endanger trans and non-binary people’s safety and well-being! Good going hey-h0-lets-go! Loving this whiny cis content!
It must have been so easy for you to write from such a privileged perspective! You must know all about what’s best for everyone! Congrats!

nonbinary people who are okay with gendered pronouns/names are still nonbinary and if a nonbinary person tells you they’re okay with gendered pronouns then it’s really not your place to say that their gender identity is less valid because of that, even if you yourself are nonbinary. Gender is different for everyone and there’s no “valid way” to be a certain gender the only validation you need is your own.
Ooh! Fun fact: Trans* is transmisogynistic; trans should be used instead. (the * implies that there’s a group that isn’t already captured under trans, which is untrue.)
Many nonbinary people don’t identify as trans, I’ve always seen trans* used to include nonbinary people who don’t want to use the trans tag. As a nonbinary trans person, I want to emphasize that the discrimination I go through is different than binary trans people (especially as a DFAB nonbinary person I have quite a bit of privilege over DMAB trans women and nonbinary identities.) and I feel like the asterix does that for me. How do other trans or nonbinary people feel about this?
These are all links that deal with the asterisk
I’m a trans women and I’m really against the asterisk because of how it’s often used, whether intentionally or not, to take the focus away from trans women on issues that only trans women deal with. I also don’t like it because the narrative of a “community” inherently makes the privilege of dfab trans people, especially trans men, invisible. It also seems to make people think that trans men are capable of talking about the issues of all trans people. I’m also against it because of the apparent history behind its creation to separate the transsexual identity from non binary trans people.
I didn’t even think of the way the asterisk could be racist by including race specific identities in an umbrella they don’t identify with but that makes so much sense. Thank you so much everyone for sending these links and I really encourage people (especially us DFAB trans people) to take a look.
This is the best collection of links around the nature of the asterisk that I’ve run into, and represent the reason I’ve stopped using “trans*” as a tag in my posts and started using simply “trans” instead.

Inside the stopped clock where my faded memories lay
I am there, vague and can’t be found by anyone
The swaying dreams get further away little by little
I want it to the point where it wears out
For me, who has nothing remaining
Set me free let me be – I can’t breathe
Set me free let me be – I’m sick of this now
Set me free let me be – I’m too exhausted
Set me see let me be – I can’t take any more of this
Set me free Set me free
The one thing I hope for, the thing I can’t bear to say
I’ll probaby bury it, the words too heavy for me
privileged white christians are fascinating like they have no idea what oppression is but they think they’re experiencing it all the time wow amazing
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
