please don’t ever say this to me.  this is not one of your movies where a man dresses as a woman and has to learn a valuable lesson.  i’m not a man, this is my real life, and my feelings are as real as yours.  just treat me like i treat you.

There’s usually a tone that goes with it; that when a trans woman complains about the awful things that happen to women happening to them that cis women seem to think that we “signed up” for it.

It’s as if to say that the negative way women are treated by the world is something that we wanted, or is the price to pay for being recognized as being in any way legitimate.

Yes, I want my womanhood to be recognized.

No, I’m not asking to be treated like dirt.

No, I don’t want any woman to be treated like this.

Being dehumanized is not a package deal for anybody, and screw anybody who treats it like it is.

Check out my article over on AfroPunk— featuring the genius Florence Adepoju, creator of MDMflow, the vibrant lipstick line representing a clash of the late 90’s and early 2000’s rhythmic hip hop culture.

Her colors go beyond any MAC palette!

It is dreadful when something weighs on your mind, not to have a soul to unburden yourself to. You know what I mean. I tell my piano the things I used to tell you.
