OKAY. So you want to play stupid games and win stupid prizes: let’s play this game then because go at me, fine. Go at my friends, I’m done playing.
This threads about to throw around some heavy dysphoria topics because of you shits are going to dish it out you are going to get some yourself.
YO, ladies. Let’s talk about “toxic” behavior since you all want to keep having a go. *Not all women™️
Let’s talk about pre transition, when my friends and I grew up from age 5 on being bullied by all genders. You want to go on all the time about how bullied you were for being “queer coded.” But a lot of you participated to avoid that.
A lot of you went about a long f**kin time passing for cis men and you lot are the ones I see consistently THE most toxic shit from, especially directed at trans men.
Yeah being in the closet sucks, it’s horrible and makes you want to not be alive. You know who else goes through that? Trans men. So when you pile on - would you do that to a trans woman? No? Then why tf are you doing it to anyone else?
You know what I remember before you came out? How many of you, hiding in the closet stood by and watched AFAB people have the shit bullied out of them. Those of you who slapped us, who helped your shitty friends trap us in corners and grab at us while WE got in trouble for it.
The whisper campaigns you participated in spreading lies about us and calling us slurs. And did worse. And those of you who were perfectly aware of all the behavior perpetrated against us-
Or who participated and didn’t call it out because you were “scared” of becoming a target yourselves or being clocked. “Well I don’t feel good about this but I’ll do it.”
Those of you who out of fear NEVER stood up? That’s in the past. But you don’t get a pass. You deal with it NOW. You make up for it by helping protect your trans peers. You make amends don’t pretend ignoring it didn’t make you complicit.
Now you want to join in with “men are shit” when some of the targets of your current bullying were the targets of your last bullying and your lack of action.
You pretend not to see this shit because it means you won’t have to deal with it and face judgement from your shitty peers. Again.
You hear trans men are the most abused, most suicidal and go “we’re the most murdered!” No you f**king aren’t; those statistics belong to BLACK trans women and most of you crap-asses endlessly doing this are white liberals that don’t do shit to help them either.
In fact half the time you add on to their pile-ons because you follow racist people who won’t examine their racism just like you don’t examine your shit against AFAB trans people and you make it harder for them as well as us.
You steal trans women of color’s horrifying statistics and use those to bully and silence trans AFAB people and call us misogynists and rapists while doing nothing to help.
I know misogyny; I saw it coming from a lot of you before any of you started to transition. I see it linger in your hearts. DO BETTER.
So now I watch as you want to play the mean girl you didn’t get to be in highschool. You watch as your friends pick on others and stay silent. You don’t call it out you don’t point it out.
A few of you do call it out heavily and consistently; Sophie, May, Robynette, I see it from you the most and I see how much shit you get thrown your way for standing up for EVERYONE in the community and it’s brave af.
But the rest of you? You need work. I don’t know if it’s genital envy, or internalized bullshit, or deep denial, or guilt, or fear. But you need to reach down, examine that toxic shit in you and rip it out so you can heal and stop being TRASH to everyone.
I’ve seen some of you not even stand up for other trans women because “oh this ally is more important.” Your racist cis ally is not more important. Get your shit together.
You OF ALL PEOPLE know no one can control their gender so if you are a trans person attacking someone for their gender you are garbage and should be shunned right out of the entire community.
That goes for EVERY trans person who attacks ANYONE for their gender. It’s all EQUALLY unacceptable. If you were a trans guy and subject to this and now participate - you’re absolute scum and should re-examine your life. Because you are no better.
If you are non binary I see this from you and you are not exempt.

Everyone needs a to stop right now acting like anyone doing this expresses an entire gender and STOP TOLERATING IT. STOP IT. Ffs.
