Tumblr’s gender community is literally the dumbest fucking community I’ve ever stumbled upon. 
They want to be recognized and taken seriously, they want to further their rights and gain the equality they deserve. This is completely reasonable, oppression is not fucking fun. I’ve been fucked with for a long ass time due to being gay, I know what fucking oppression is. The LGBTQ+ communtiy has come this far by peaceful protest and showing that we’re just as human as everyone else. 
Then these stupid little piss whipes come in and toss shit everywhere. Their strategy is literally this: 
"We want to gain equal rights and show the world that we’re people too! So we’re going to be as rude, aggressive, and immature as possible in order to obtain this! If people get offended by us saying "Cis-scum", then we’ll tell them that means they’re a privileged piss baby!" 
Are you fucking dense? Do you honestly think this will work? The world won’t take you seriously, the world won’t accept you, the world will think you’re batshit insane and try to push you down even more. You are working against the years of progress the trans movement has worked for. You are ebbing away at what so many people fought for out of your sheer stubbornness and stupidity. 
Fuck you. 

I consider myself outside of the usual gender binary and care a HUGE deal about the LGBTQ+ community and have many, many friends in that same community who I agree with and side with.
But even with all that, thank freaking god this post exists. It uses muuuch harsher words than what I would of used, but I definitely agree with the sentiment.
The best way to bring everyone closer together, understand how you’re feeling and allow them to be more accepting is through education and mutual understanding and not tip-toeing around the issue, explaining how this stuff is and explaining why it matters to them and why it’s only fair if you all get the same sorta rights. NOT pushing other labels and insults on other people just to make yourselves feel superior, because that causes nothing good at all. In fact, it could even be more damaging to your own community if you’re really that much of someone in that community who people listen to and takes every word you say as the gospel truth.
Whoever made this post, while it MIGHT of been written slightly harsher than I’d do it IMO, gets a high-five from me by being unafraid about speaking out on a really, really toxic way of dealing with these issues.

i am in absolute disbelief by how naive and stupid every single person who reblogged and liked this is in regard to liberation and oppression. you should all feel very bad about yourselves and express extreme gratitude that you are not subjected to ridicule, bullying, assault and murder on a daily basis for simply being (to quote laverne cox) your most authentic self. the sheer foolishness and naivety of this entire attitude baffles me that you don’t ever question why trans people react so negatively to cis people encroaching on their space, which tumblr is. instead of intelligently ignoring the justified resentment trans people have for cis people, you insist on barging your presence into that space and subsequently denying and neglecting the fact that trans anger (if that is even a phrase) is completely and utterly justified.

Oh it’s justified, definitely! But fighting toxicity with more toxicity just makes more toxicity. You can sort issues out and help to make a difference without labelling and abusing others. This is what I mean’t and that’s why I want more people to understand that through better understanding of each other, we can make a big difference in our perception of each other for the better, rather than making more and more borders between each other.
We’re all human, no matter what our gender roles are, and that’s proberbly the best thing to think regarding how to approach this. And it all starts when you stop labelling people. “Cis” is a biological term, not a real gender role, but it still doesn’t give you any right to abuse others just for being who you are.
None of my trans friends wish death to “cis people” or anything like that because we’re all in the mindset that we’re all united by our humanity and then our respective differences outside of that. Don’t think discrimination against ANYONE should be idolized, no matter who’s doing the discriminating. It doesn’t matter wether they’re “Cis”, trans, pan, straight, gay, bi or otherwise, discriminating people just because they were born differently from you is really fucking wrong, no matter who you are. 
Don’t be like the people you don’t support, because no offense but you’re in danger of sounding exactly like them. Discrimination is bad no matter who’s doing it and no matter who it’s targetted at. 

nobody legitimately believes that the majority of trans people telling cis people to die are being serious. the fact that none of your trans friends really wish death upon cis people proves this but instead of allowing trans people this space where their feelings of injustice can be heard, where their legitimate feelings of being ostracised and abused in the real world can be expressed, you are actively ignoring their disgust and complaining that cis people are being vicitmised for just being cis, when in actuality cis people are only discriminated on the basis that their feelings are hurt. i cannot articulate myself any more clearly that your complaints about trans people expressing their rage against a system that systematically and violently erases their identities is uncompassionate and incredibly self-centred when it is not at all difficult to just ignore the insult, realise where the anger stems from and move on. this is not a challenging concept; your hurt feelings are not equitable to the mass ridicule, assaults and murders trans people are threatened with every day. mature and perhaps you will understand

The majority of trans people, I like to believe, wouldn’t want to label and divide “cis people” at all in the first place. Because while it really, really sucks that there’re people out there who still want to discriminate others and it ESPECIALLY sucks that transphobia still exists and that we cannot ignore that issues, at the same time, we need to be rational. We need to set an example that we don’t want to stand for it but we also want to prove that we at large - and the community getting the butt of all this - are human beings just like everyone else and that there’s no need to be discriminated because again, no matter what our gender roles are we ALL are united by our humanity, this great gift we’ve all been given called life and the fact that we’re all here and alive to make the best of our lives before they’re gone. And from that angle, there’s no need to be discriminative or antagonistic just because some people were just born differently or go about their lives in ways that’re different from the so-called “norm” but are otherwise completely moral and legal.
No offense, again, but you’re spinning this into the notion that I’m against trans people speaking out about their problems with these situations at all when it REALLY isn’t what I mean’t. What I mean is that there’s a huge subsection (NOT the majority, though) who feel that antagonising and discriminating others just because they’re different from they are will make a difference to those who’re ALSO antagonising and discriminating others for being different to who they themselves are. 
We don’t think rationally on this, we go immediately into “fuck you, no fuck you back” mode because its the easiest, quickest way to handle these situations. And the loudest because that’s easier to get attention from. NOT because its the best. There are different ways of communicating and talking about this and having people learn about this community and to have other people understand where they’re all coming from without resorting to trying to make everything into some sort of “social war”.
Let’s try an analogy real quick. You’re a maths teacher in a classroom of kids. Many of these kids don’t have an understanding of math or feel they’re above math enough that they don’t see a point in learning or understanding it. Basically, you’re teaching a tough crowd! But how do you help them learn that 2 plus 2 equals 4 and help them learn the basic fundamentals of adding up when they insist the answer is…say…6 or something else? Do you walk them through the process of how addition works how adding 2 twice equals 2 and 2 again, which makes 4 or…say…do you throw your desk across the room, run towards the children’s desks and scream how they are bad for not understanding and should be ashamed to be alive due to their ignorance and lack of knowledge rather than tell them how 2 + 2 makes up the answer?
Opinion is subjective as it should be, but this is one of those times where certain standards need to be taken in mind. I feel connected to this community, even if I’m still unsure what my gender role is right now as I’m still questioning myself, and I speak out on this stuff because I worry the people who take the antagonistic route are doing more harm to their own community than they feel they are. I want my transfriends to feel good about who they are and I want them to feel safe and I have no problems with people being vocal about trans issues as that can be VERY important, but we cannot stoop to the same lows as the people who’ve discriminated them just because a small subset of people are being shits and I deeply worry that people needs to feel that the people that are should be the right voice for the community because it’ll only make those in that community feel even more divided from society than they should be.
In the end of the day, it isn’t people’s gender roles that’re important with this, it’s their actions. No gender role should be a justifiable excuse for having toxic views that harm others - anyone at all! So we need to think about our actions first rather than where gender comes into it, because it means less in the long haul than a lot might realise.
And as soon as we realise that gender roles and people’s actions are separate entities that differ from each individual, the less chance we’ll have of this unnecessary divide continuing to exist.

i rest my case

Errm…sure. Why not?

nobody legitimately believes that the majority of trans people telling cis people to die are being serious. the fact that none of your trans friends really wish death upon cis people proves this but instead of allowing trans people this space where their feelings of injustice can be heard, where their legitimate feelings of being ostracised and abused in the real world can be expressed, you are actively ignoring their disgust and complaining that cis people are being vicitmised for just being cis, when in actuality cis people are only discriminated on the basis that their feelings are hurt. i cannot articulate myself any more clearly that your complaints about trans people expressing their rage against a system that systematically and violently erases their identities is uncompassionate and incredibly self-centred when it is not at all difficult to just ignore the insult, realise where the anger stems from and move on. this is not a challenging concept; your hurt feelings are not equitable to the mass ridicule, assaults and murders trans people are threatened with every day. mature and perhaps you will understand

The majority of trans people, I like to believe, wouldn’t want to label and divide “cis people” at all in the first place. Because while it really, really sucks that there’re people out there who still want to discriminate others and it ESPECIALLY sucks that transphobia still exists and that we cannot ignore that issues, at the same time, we need to be rational. We need to set an example that we don’t want to stand for it but we also want to prove that we at large - and the community getting the butt of all this - are human beings just like everyone else and that there’s no need to be discriminated because again, no matter what our gender roles are we ALL are united by our humanity, this great gift we’ve all been given called life and the fact that we’re all here and alive to make the best of our lives before they’re gone. And from that angle, there’s no need to be discriminative or antagonistic just because some people were just born differently or go about their lives in ways that’re different from the so-called “norm” but are otherwise completely moral and legal.

No offense, again, but you’re spinning this into the notion that I’m against trans people speaking out about their problems with these situations at all when it REALLY isn’t what I mean’t. What I mean is that there’s a huge subsection (NOT the majority, though) who feel that antagonising and discriminating others just because they’re different from they are will make a difference to those who’re ALSO antagonising and discriminating others for being different to who they themselves are. 

We don’t think rationally on this, we go immediately into “fuck you, no fuck you back” mode because its the easiest, quickest way to handle these situations. And the loudest because that’s easier to get attention from. NOT because its the best. There are different ways of communicating and talking about this and having people learn about this community and to have other people understand where they’re all coming from without resorting to trying to make everything into some sort of “social war”.

Let’s try an analogy real quick. You’re a maths teacher in a classroom of kids. Many of these kids don’t have an understanding of math or feel they’re above math enough that they don’t see a point in learning or understanding it. Basically, you’re teaching a tough crowd! But how do you help them learn that 2 plus 2 equals 4 and help them learn the basic fundamentals of adding up when they insist the answer is…say…6 or something else? Do you walk them through the process of how addition works how adding 2 twice equals 2 and 2 again, which makes 4 or…say…do you throw your desk across the room, run towards the children’s desks and scream how they are bad for not understanding and should be ashamed to be alive due to their ignorance and lack of knowledge rather than tell them how 2 + 2 makes up the answer?

Opinion is subjective as it should be, but this is one of those times where certain standards need to be taken in mind. I feel connected to this community, even if I’m still unsure what my gender role is right now as I’m still questioning myself, and I speak out on this stuff because I worry the people who take the antagonistic route are doing more harm to their own community than they feel they are. I want my transfriends to feel good about who they are and I want them to feel safe and I have no problems with people being vocal about trans issues as that can be VERY important, but we cannot stoop to the same lows as the people who’ve discriminated them just because a small subset of people are being shits and I deeply worry that people needs to feel that the people that are should be the right voice for the community because it’ll only make those in that community feel even more divided from society than they should be.

In the end of the day, it isn’t people’s gender roles that’re important with this, it’s their actions. No gender role should be a justifiable excuse for having toxic views that harm others - anyone at all! So we need to think about our actions first rather than where gender comes into it, because it means less in the long haul than a lot might realise.

And as soon as we realise that gender roles and people’s actions are separate entities that differ from each individual, the less chance we’ll have of this unnecessary divide continuing to exist.

By the way!

Regarding those last couple of posts, to those who know me RL and outside of some of the circles I frequent where I usually talk about this stuff, when I say I’m outside the usual gender binary I mean that I don’t feel mascaline/manly but I’m still thinking a lot of things out and don’t know if I can give a straight answer as to what just yet.

It’s also something massively personal and it might not even amount to much things changing in the long haul anyway, so i’d also appreciate it if it doesn’t become a big deal outside of the net here and all, if that’s alright.

Refer to me however you want as well, I don’t really care much for pronouns much at the moment. It’s okay.

Tumblr’s gender community is literally the dumbest fucking community I’ve ever stumbled upon. 
They want to be recognized and taken seriously, they want to further their rights and gain the equality they deserve. This is completely reasonable, oppression is not fucking fun. I’ve been fucked with for a long ass time due to being gay, I know what fucking oppression is. The LGBTQ+ communtiy has come this far by peaceful protest and showing that we’re just as human as everyone else. 
Then these stupid little piss whipes come in and toss shit everywhere. Their strategy is literally this: 
"We want to gain equal rights and show the world that we’re people too! So we’re going to be as rude, aggressive, and immature as possible in order to obtain this! If people get offended by us saying "Cis-scum", then we’ll tell them that means they’re a privileged piss baby!" 
Are you fucking dense? Do you honestly think this will work? The world won’t take you seriously, the world won’t accept you, the world will think you’re batshit insane and try to push you down even more. You are working against the years of progress the trans movement has worked for. You are ebbing away at what so many people fought for out of your sheer stubbornness and stupidity. 
Fuck you. 

I consider myself outside of the usual gender binary and care a HUGE deal about the LGBTQ+ community and have many, many friends in that same community who I agree with and side with.
But even with all that, thank freaking god this post exists. It uses muuuch harsher words than what I would of used, but I definitely agree with the sentiment.
The best way to bring everyone closer together, understand how you’re feeling and allow them to be more accepting is through education and mutual understanding and not tip-toeing around the issue, explaining how this stuff is and explaining why it matters to them and why it’s only fair if you all get the same sorta rights. NOT pushing other labels and insults on other people just to make yourselves feel superior, because that causes nothing good at all. In fact, it could even be more damaging to your own community if you’re really that much of someone in that community who people listen to and takes every word you say as the gospel truth.
Whoever made this post, while it MIGHT of been written slightly harsher than I’d do it IMO, gets a high-five from me by being unafraid about speaking out on a really, really toxic way of dealing with these issues.

i am in absolute disbelief by how naive and stupid every single person who reblogged and liked this is in regard to liberation and oppression. you should all feel very bad about yourselves and express extreme gratitude that you are not subjected to ridicule, bullying, assault and murder on a daily basis for simply being (to quote laverne cox) your most authentic self. the sheer foolishness and naivety of this entire attitude baffles me that you don’t ever question why trans people react so negatively to cis people encroaching on their space, which tumblr is. instead of intelligently ignoring the justified resentment trans people have for cis people, you insist on barging your presence into that space and subsequently denying and neglecting the fact that trans anger (if that is even a phrase) is completely and utterly justified.

Oh it’s justified, definitely! But fighting toxicity with more toxicity just makes more toxicity. You can sort issues out and help to make a difference without labelling and abusing others. This is what I mean’t and that’s why I want more people to understand that through better understanding of each other, we can make a big difference in our perception of each other for the better, rather than making more and more borders between each other.
We’re all human, no matter what our gender roles are, and that’s proberbly the best thing to think regarding how to approach this. And it all starts when you stop labelling people. “Cis” is a biological term, not a real gender role, but it still doesn’t give you any right to abuse others just for being who you are.
None of my trans friends wish death to “cis people” or anything like that because we’re all in the mindset that we’re all united by our humanity and then our respective differences outside of that. Don’t think discrimination against ANYONE should be idolized, no matter who’s doing the discriminating. It doesn’t matter wether they’re “Cis”, trans, pan, straight, gay, bi or otherwise, discriminating people just because they were born differently from you is really fucking wrong, no matter who you are.
