jesus christ destroy all boys
this subject is really important to me on a personal level but my thoughts are in a bit of a jumble on it at the moment so i fielded this to dear friend and fraudulent expert in fake and gayness moneycat:
trans women have nothing to gain by respectability politics and trans men have everything to gain. at most we can hope to let off some of the horrendous social pressure that comes with being a trans woman, in favor of the horrendous social pressure that comes with being a woman. by contrast, trans dudes stand to gain or lose _everything_ by narrow politics of invisibility, of choice, of fakeness and gayness.
this intersects in various ways: trans men of color have less to gain, as do trans men who can’t function as hetero men
but as a whole trans boys who push the truscum, “you’re hurting me by being fake” line are speaking the truth. their material interest is repressing and wounding marginal people who hold them back, and is ultimately in exploiting women - amab and afab, b and nb
"hurting" them in this way, denying them ways to take from us, is salutary and important
i feel so much more tremendously empowered, personally, by the idea that i was able to take stock of my miserable and dreary existence and realize that by embracing transness, by choosing this path in life, i could enrich my life enormously.
i don’t want scraps of legitimacy from cis and male institutions. i want to build a new world for my sisters and comrades where we can value each other, i want to carve it out where necessary. the transness i advocate would gladly welcome your company, anon

Hi! I’m a fucking mess
"I have no memory for things I have learned, nor things I have read, nor things experienced or heard, neither for people nor events; I feel that I have experienced nothing, learned nothing, that I actually know less than the average schoolboy, and that what I do know is superficial, and that every second question is beyond me. I am incapable of thinking deliberately; my thoughts run into a wall. I can grasp the essence of things in isolation, but I am quite incapable of coherent, unbroken thinking. I can’t even tell a story properly; in fact, I can scarcely talk."
I’ve been spending too much time around smarmy dickheads. i’m going to piss on the floor and smoke menthols
