4 down, 6 to go
I’m on the floor.
In my opinion, the word transgender is an insult, and very degrading.
I’m a guy who was born female. By the time I began puberty, I decided I was male. Literally never, not even by doctors or therapists, have I been referred to as trangender.
In the first week or so I joined tumblr, I was called “trans” by at least five or six people, and it really annoyed me. I haven’t even been called a girl since I was about fourteen. To me, being called that is like someone saying to me that, yeah, I’m a guy, but I’m not a real man, just because I was born without a dick.
The term trans places both men and women who weren’t born the gender they associate with in a completely different box to people who do. It’s one thing to say to me that you’re going to accept my decision, call me by my preferred pronouns, fight for equality and all that; it’s another to actually call me a man. But oh, no, you just have to refer to me as a trans man.
It just really pisses me off, and I wish that tumblr wouldn’t glorify the “need” to differentiate between “cis” and “trans” people.
:V originally from my kaiju clock, but yeah, will be turning these guys into stickers! might include a breach sticker, and possibly some other misc. things too idk

Ask and ye shall receive.
cute story: I have a friend with a prosthetic arm, and he once confided in me that, after seeing this movie, he’s always wanted someone to ask him for this. Then, the one day, I was at the grocery store with him and a couple other people, and one of our friends couldn’t reach a box on the shelf and asked him, “Dude gimme a hand here”. And, I swear to christ he practiced this because the speed at which he slipped off his prosthesis was blinding, and then he hurled his arm at her. He, unfortunately, got a tad overexcited, and instead of it just landing near her, it spun out and essentially bitchslapped her in mid-air.
Now we say it all the time around him, and he blames Disney for the fact that he has no girlfriend.
fucki m laughing so hard
