Anonymous asked: Hi, could you help me? So i'm privileged cause i'm white and cis. What do I do? fight the privilege? It might be a little bit of a confuse question but oh well.
Haha, this is a kind of cute question. I’m also white and cis. I know I’ll always be privileged because of this.
There is no use in a) denying or downplaying your privilege or b) feeling bad about your privilege.
The best thing to do in this situation is to realize that your privilege gives you a voice over those less privileged than you. Instead of using it to speak over those less privileged, use it to educate other people like you — because oppressed people usually don’t like having to be the ones who educate.
Call out white people while realizing that you’re not perfect, you’ve probably fucked up and aren’t immune from fucking up again. When you’re addressing racism, never forget that you are white. Never act like you’re some sort of *exception.* When POC or trans people express their frustration with the things white/cis people do, ask yourself “Do I do that? Can I avoid doing that?”
Be kind. Be understanding. Don’t co-opt or erase other peoples’ experiences. Listen. Correct yourself. Spread the influence.
An updated list of receipts for Lesbolution, because she’s evolved to full-on trans extermination.
Please note that I consider reblogs without commentary to be endorsement.
As you can see, she derails every discussion of trans issues, transmisogyny, trans erasure, cis privilege and even violence against trans people.
She denies the existence of cis privilege because in her world women cannot be privileged at all.
When trans women open up about the violence they experience in situations such as public bathrooms, she simply says “Well women are oppressed too esp. non-gender-conforming women” and therefore trans people do not deserve attention.
And when she’s pressed, she says that “cis” and “trans” shouldn’t even be a thing. So that she can continue to exclude every woman who happened to not be assigned female at birth.
Despite her earlier dismissal of people who tag menstruation or vaginas, calling them misogynists, she insists that people trigger tag for penises and PIV sex.
And though she claims to be anti-racist, her logo is a blatant appropriation of the Black Power symbol.
