OK, here’s the thing. I go on about gender a lot, and I try to advocate for the rights of the transgender community. I self describe as queer, as a trans ally but, basically, as cisgender, with all the privilege that entails. I’m a cis woman with a lot to say about trans politics. I get that this is problematic, but I also get that it’s everyone’s job to fight for what’s right. So know that I mean no harm, and feel free to let me know if my privilege is showing.

If you just want me to shut up because you don’t like THAT I have something to say, though, I’ll probably ignore you.

Oh and if you’re a Transphobic fool who’s the sort of person who uses a phrase like ‘handmaiden of the patriarchy’ in all seriousness? Bite me.
