So I’ve noticed that a number of trans women are asking about walking and body language tutorials to avoid misgendering out in the Hellish Cis Wilds

And before some gross shit says it: cis feminists please go fuck yourselves if you think it’s “misogynist” to keep yourself from getting a bottle cracked over your head by walking a certain way because lmao even cis girls will do that to a trans girl for not being “feminine” enough etc etc.

like i sincerely hope caitlyn jenner doesnt have to deal with transmisogyny (which she will)

but can we acknowledge that her wealth and celebrity allows her to capitalize and sensationalize trans womanhood?

can we acknowledge that her being able to ‘lead’ like this is less about her being a trans woman and more about her being rich and white?

by all means, cheer on caitlyn, but please dont act like this is revolutionary and be sure to ask yourself:

how does this at all benefit poor and homeless trans women?

how does this benefit trans women of color?

does this change the danger trans women face for existing?

does caitlyn coming out, and doing a photo shoot, materially change the playing field for trans women?

likely these answers will be nothing or no, and in those cases we need to remember that a white rich trans woman celebrity isnt the answer to the problems our community is facing.


The fact that people only “care” about trans women or issues now that Caitlyn Jenner is transitioning is so telling
