WHEN 'TRANS EFF NORMS':INTERSEX AND NON-BINARY.
"I wore red lipstick for the first time in I don't know how long (maybe forever?) and went to a shopping center for my bestie's bday to eat last night. I had some bomb ass orange chicken (shoutout @foodlife_chicago
) but that's besides the point. Afterwards, we went shopping for some last minute wedding tings...
At one point, I walked past a group of teens and then, with my back to them I looked at some face masks and I heard one of them yell "ARE YOU GAY?" Then they were all laughing. The kid said some more things that I won't repeat here... But point is, I just froze up. I was so heated and hurt at the same time.
It made me instantly think about how this is so much more a reality for those of my enby and trans familia who are even more visibly non-binary and gender non-conforming than myself. I remember asking myself, "how does @alokvmenon
deal with this on the daily?" I realized in that moment how privileged I am that this is not my everyday experience. It was so hard not to react, with either anger or tears, in thayt moment. But now I feel sad and wish I could be back at Alok's Chicago performance hearing all the things I never had words for before they said them for me. This world is cruel, but I'm glad we have each other.
The gag tho is that they tell our parents, the parents of intersex kids, that the "normalizing" surgeries will prevent us from bullying. No dipshits. Embracing human diversity and teaching our kids love, not hate, will prevent bullying. Intersex is beautiful and so are trans and non-binary people. Your hatred of us is what's disgusting. #endintersexsurgery
