Your transphobia isn’t feminism.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    my experience? thanks for asking. i live in uganda. most of the transphobia i have experienced has been from random women in the street who take issue with my hair (they say it’s too much like a woman’s hair – and i always ask them what a woman’s hair is supposed to be like), women who work in women’s rights organizations (they just hate, actively, and their transphobia is just an extension of their homophobia which they seem to see no need to hide), and religious women who pity me and think i’m lost and in need of prayers. sometimes i wonder if they need “men to be men” and “women to be women” so that narratives such as “men against women” and “women suffering because of men” and “patriarchy is pervasive and has benefitted all men and disadvantaged all women” can survive for their survival as self-styled feminists. i shy away from feminists these days. they don’t miss me. i don’t miss them.

    I’m sorry to hear that. In the West we’ve had racist feminism, feminism for rich people…

    I believe women do get treated badly and feminism is necessary but I wish everyone could fight for a good cause without hurting others.
