I’m a Trans Woman – And I’m Not Interested in Being One of the ‘Good Ones’ (Link)

This article is point by point exactly what I’ve experienced.

I had a group moderator (a transgender woman in her 60s) tell all us fledgeling trans girls that if people don’t like us, it’s our fault for not being perfect images of 1950s femme housewifedom. It’s the only time I’ve wanted to punch an elder square in the nose, and a trans* woman to boot.

I managed to restrain even my sarcasm because I remembered that if she’s bought into these lies about womanhood, then it’s only because society has placed such crippling conditions of normalcy on her.

    Thanks for sharing this. It made me think. It made me think a lot.

    Society sucks. You know you’re a woman; that’s good enough for me, and as far as I’m concerned, whether you look like June Cleaver shouldn’t matter. Hang in there.
