It amazes me that cis people think they aren’t transphobic when it takes years for trans people to unlearn internalized transphobia
and that’s when they’re actively educating themselves, thinking about it constantly, and have intense motivation to unlearn that shit. Cis people? Do nothing of the kind and have no such motivation.
i feel that probably every open-minded cis person would work towards eliminating their internalized transphobia if we provided resources for educating them on what transgenderism and transphobia actually are, rather than berating them for it and alienating them from the community. posts like this give off super unwelcoming vibes and I really don’t think that’s the best way to go about helping to better our societal challenges.
