1) i'm white.
2) i'm a woman.
3) i'm trans.
i am born with certain inherent privileges that come from existing in a system that has been built to benefit white people.
i have privilege.
trans women of colour.
latin and latinx.
WOMEN FULL STOP.
i learn from them.
i don't speak over them.
i don't speak for them.
i learn, and i amplify with their words.
that's adhering to a patriarchal system that presses down on all of us.
some women need more right now.
and until we have a level playing field, we all need to realise this, accept this, digest this, and move forward.
it is not the first time.
it likely will not be the last.
we've all spoken about it before.
and no one listens cos hey trans women lulz.
and the only storied we can tell are our own.
none of us have the right to speak for everyone.
and those of us who have benefits because of the system that others do not need to use those benefits to uplift voices that are unheard/ignored.
those are the options.
