Y'know, I keep trying to stay positive, and I've been incredibly fortunate re family reactions, support and all since I started transitioning, but the pile-up of absolute asshole TERFS and general transphobia in the media, especially in the UK, is destroying me
It might not be assholes explicitly laughing or pointing at you. But everything in media, society and online is made to make you feel like you're a freak. Like you're a threat to women's right. Like you're all-around wrong. It's exhausting
I didn't realise until I sat down with myself and thought about it the other day that I live in constant fear that tomorrow the government will sit down with some TERFs and agree to write some BS law that says I can't use women's bathroom
And because I come from a toilet of a country where changing your gender marker on IDs isn't possible without a lengthy and costly court process, I'll be vulnerable to those laws. Like countless trans people who can't or don't wan't to change their official papers. Fuck TERFs
Once again cause why the hell not: Fuck TERFs. Fuck pseudo progressive reporters who think that letting trans people explain their lives would be biased. Fuck cis actors thinking they're qualified to tell our stories.
The Scarlett Johanson thing might seem petty to a lot of people, but they have no idea what representation can do. Seeing @chellehendley in Boy Meets Girl was the first time I realised that being trans was beautiful, way before I accepted that I was. It helped a lot.
