hi, I’m Emmy. drop a selfie and introduce yourself. it’s been a little while.
Oh, I’m a bald woman by the way. In case you didn’t notice. 💁🏼‍♀️
i’m gonna make a good gf
Really cool to put some faces with names!

ps- you can introduce yourself even if you don’t feel comfy sharing a photo
One thing about me is I’m very tired of being isolated because of the pandemic. I was just getting to the point of building a social life for the first time in early 2020, and c19 said nope. So here I am. Doing selfie threads on Saturday night to pass the time. lol
I’m actually sorry I haven’t done one of these in a while. I used to do them regularly, but I’ve been kinda grieving and depressed over my kids moving 1000+ miles away and just haven’t had the spoons to do it. I’m so glad for everyone that joined in.

transphobes: calm like a mentos bomb
I don’t know why I do this.

Oh wait, yes I do. Because I laughed my ass off when I was finished creating it. 😂

If you’re a straight guy, and you like a trans girl, and she likes you back, why would you deny yourself romance for other people’s judgements? Trans women are women, which is why straight men find us attractive, and when a straight man likes a woman, he’s straight baby.
“My friends can’t find out” is what puts so many trans women in harm’s way.

Find out what? That you like a woman? Oh, they’ll think you’re gay, right. Even if that were true why would you want to be friends with people who wouldn’t accept you if you were gay? Shitty friends imo.
Lots of straight men are attracted to trans women. It’s not that they don’t want to be with us, it’s that they don’t want anyone else to know because social stigmas around intersections of transphobia, trans misogyny, and homophobia are so normalized in straight dude culture.

Trans people don’t need “safe spaces,” we need spaces that are as safe for us as they are for any cis person.
Conservatives want to make the entire US a safe space from the very people they claim want to make the entire US a safe space. They're so fragile they need to weaponize religion to exclude trans people from their conscious existence. How sad to be so delicate. Safe spaces indeed.
Every trans person who goes out into the world as themselves is braver than any person who has ever said we need a fucking safe space. We don’t. We just need the spaces you’re safe in to be safe for us too.

Transness isn’t failed cisness. Trans people aren’t cis deviants. Trans people are trans because of transness. Cisness is not supreme or holy, it’s simply the most commonly observed mode.
Trans people are just regular people who are different than cis people and deserve the same rights, treatment, and respect as anyone. Trans people deserve dignity. Trans people just want to live our lives without fear of harassment, harm, discrimination, and oppression.
Nature is variation. Those who think otherwise do so because they believe an imaginary being “put us here” or some other weird thing. No. Humans are just another manifestation of this amazing planet, and without nature’s messiness and variation, humans would’ve never risen.
