Guys, take a break. Eat a brownie! People are people. People have opinions. Don't assume throwing your shit at cisfist is going to magically change him into you. If you want to find an outlet for your troubles, think about treasure chests and octopi. They're slimy and full of gold coins!

cisfist:

…this is a work of art, brosef. 

@ the anon who says there are lots of transphobic posts- sources pls?I run a receipt blog for just about everything and am currently lacking in that department. Only transphobic posts I have are people being transphobic to trans men for being men.

cisfist:

ohhhhhhh bless you, brosef. 

We need more like you, anon-san. :)

serious question: would cisfist writing a "headcanon" about you having an imaginary SO that's just a sad lil delusion... would /that/ have been acceptable "silliness"? because this seems pretty directly insulting.

Y’know, I guess I’m just going to state this publicly after all.
I actually do have delusions.
They affect me every single day.
No, really. If you want further information, message me (OFF ANON): I’m not sure about how comfortable I am putting the rest on this blog, publicly.
So to answer your question, I don’t mind unless it’s a direct attack (ex: bigots are delusional)
I’ve had delusions for as long as I can remember. Again, every single day. It’s just that I’m not offended by certain things: I’m not trying to outright say “you’re wrong”, though.
But I took that post down for a reason, how did you find it

"bigots are delusional" is more direct than "cisfist is delusional"?

I understand and respect joking about your mental health problems. Lord knows I do it too. I don’t project that to joking about other people’s issues, though. That’s where my beef lies. 

I wrote that anon, specifically because I didn’t want to make this seem like I’m aggressing you on behalf of my darlin’ dear. But you’re being hypocritical, and that’s not a thing I’m okay with.

I had a feeling that was you tbh
but you sent anon hate and i’m sorry but i view anon hate as honestly revolting/cowardly and therefore i admittedly have a lot less respect for you
because again, anon hate is -fucking disgusting-
do not do that ever
i’ll get to your actual response in the morning, though
i’m not denying i did a bad…… it’s just that-
actually, y’know what, i’m saving that for the morning

…what a cozy world you must live in, where that qualifies as anon hate.

Did you miss the part where I was on anon because I wanted to avoid confrontation? That was intended for both our benefits. Also, it’s not hate to critique you without signing my name. Though apparently now I can just do that.

I’ll be happy to hear your response; by all means, sleep on it. And I get that it’s rough getting called out on bad behavior. But you gotta deal with it, y’all. I am sympathetic, certainly. Please take your time and respond when comfortable. I’m open to discourse, is what I’m telling you.

listen. i’m assuming here that being catcalled validates your womanhood, that’s what i’m taking from this. but really…do you really believe that this comic was in anyway necessary or okay to make? all this does is perpetuate the myth that women like to be catcalled, that it’s a GOOD thing that we appreciate. men already think they’re “flirting” with us when they do that and all you’re telling them is that they’re right. trans women may look at it as something positive, but the rest of us? do you know how many women are scared shitless of leaving their home and walking down the street because of catcalling? i have literally been assaulted on the street for not responding positively to catcalls. i’ve also had men physically move themselves in front of me to stop me from walking down the sidewalk, sticking their arms out to stop me from moving around them until i smiled at them, etc. i’ve been fucking SPAT at for fucks sakes. this is not okay, this is not alright, you’re perpetuating myths that harm so many women that it’s literally fucking frightening to me that this has so many notes. this is completely unacceptable. even though you described it as “bittersweet” there shouldn’t be “sweet” attached to this shit at all.

just stop. please, fucking stop, jfc.

I’m sure the sweet part was the fact that she was seen as female early into her transition. Maybe you are not 100% clear of the definition of bittersweet. This seems like a perfectly valid use of the word.

She is not being an advocate for cat calling. Chill out, you missed the point. 

see, the thing is, i get that. i literally said i get that in the first sentence. i get that being catcalled validates her womanhood. the comic still normalizes catcalling, which is something that women already have to explain over and over again until we are blue in the face, both online AND offline, is not a good thing.

i didn’t miss the point. i saw your tag, you can “defend trans women” all day every day, that’s amazing and i commend you for that. but you can also recognize that this particular example of a trans woman’s expression/validation/political standing (while a validation of their womanhood) is currently existing off the backs, experiences, and abuse of cis women and it is not uncommon. catcalling and overall street harassment is an inescapable part of many cis women’s narratives, and often a death sentence for us. it is not “bittersweet” for any of us, it is literally 100% entirely bitter. and i get that it is bittersweet for her, i get that her experiences as a trans woman are completely valid and i would never pretend to know what it means to be a trans woman. but this comic? is completely harmful and perpetuating stereotypes that exist today, right now at this very second. it would be different if we lived in some type of au where every man ever knew that catcalling is not a form of flirting or acceptable, but that’s not the case. we live in a society where the majority of men believe this is acceptable, and this comic tells them they’re right.

there is nothing wrong with the womanhood of trans women being validated. i see it as a GOOD thing. but don’t defend comics like this just on the basis of defending trans women without putting in any critical analysis whatsoever, it helps no one. don’t pretend like this comic doesn’t exist in a society that equates men’s harassment of women to flirting and the abuse of women on national scales to normal expressions of “love” and something women just have to accept and get used to.

not every facet of a trans ideology/activism is automatically without fault just on the basis of their oppression alone. i would never deny that trans people, especially trans women, have hard lives and are oppressed. this is an example of a trans woman’s personal feelings on the subject, and i am happy that her womanhood was validated. i really am. i can’t imagine how happy she was to finally have her expression and existence acknowledged. the problem here is that the acknowledgement of her existence as a trans woman assimilated later on in her life (in this particular comic) comes at the price of women who have been dealing with the repercussions of street harassment all of our lives, and i am allowed to feel insulted by that. i am allowed to feel like my oppression is being celebrated, and i am allowed to be angry at that celebration. she can HAVE all of my catcalling, i would gladly pass it over to her if that would ease her dysphoria and validate her womanhood. but that is impossible and even though it’s seems harmless, this is yet another representation of the difference between a trans woman’s version of womanhood and a cis woman’s version of womanhood. we want to escape, they want to be validated. we want completely different things out of womanhood, and each of these wants is valid. she is valid and i am valid. but i wish you and everyone else would stop pretending like a trans woman’s wants, needs, and expectations of womanhood is more important than the fact that thousands of cis women are trying to escape the hell that is the womanhood we’ve been given no choice in and we’ve been suffering and drowning in since we were born. 

this is a problem, and it wouldn’t kill you to acknowledge how insulting this is to women who have been trying to escape the harms, abuse, and frightening reality that being catcalled REALLY is and who DON’T appreciate it being related to happiness or positivity in any way, shape, or form.

Okay part of me really doesn’t want to butt in here but part of me is also really nagged by this.

Like, this is obviously a comic written to illustrate a weird, messy part of the trans experience. This is the artist trying to express her conflicted feelings about something that she clearly recognizes as a contradictory situation, and presumably a way for her to work through that contradiction.

I don’t get how, because this doesn’t strictly match up with the negative experiences of other people, this is somehow an illegitimate viewpoint to express. Even disregarding the identities of anyone involved, I don’t understand how you can say that you understand that the artist’s experiences are valid and that you can understand where her feelings are coming from, but then somehow turn around and claim that these feelings are harmful and ought not to be voiced. These are mutually exclusive viewpoints. If an experience is valid, then necessarily its expression is also valid, and it seems wildly unfair to say that expressing a valid experience is somehow damaging to people with different experiences. This holds particularly true, I should add, when the people objecting are, say, cisfolk trying to police a trans person on how she should be talking about her experience as a trans person. 

serious question: would cisfist writing a "headcanon" about you having an imaginary SO that's just a sad lil delusion... would /that/ have been acceptable "silliness"? because this seems pretty directly insulting.

so okay i just need to make a post about this new anime i started watching, Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru

it’s a magical girl anime, and one of the main characters is disabled

image

Togo was in an accident when she was little and hasn’t been able to move or feel her legs since.  of course, i fucking lost my shit at a main character in an anime this season being disabled, but i was kind of curious and apprehensive about how they were going to handle her disability when she transforms.

image

see those ribbons?  togo isn’t magically healed when she transformed, making her disability just something to make her unique when she’s a human.  no, those ribbons are how she moves.  her legs still don’t work, but the ribbons on her costume get her around and maneuver her so she can fight just as good as the other girls.

I AM SO.  FUCKING.  HAPPY.

DISABLED REPRESENTATION MATTERS.
