I’m really sick of trans people being binarist. Since the second I stepped into the trans community I’ve had binary-privileged people telling me what I was and wasn’t allowed to identify as, that my gender is wrong and doesn’t exist and that I can’t have it and be human at the same time. I’ve been patronisingly told that I’m lucky because I “can be comfortable in any gender role” (I can’t) and other ridiculous, baseless claims.
And what’s REALLY busted about this is that so many justify their actions because being associated with non-binaries makes them “look bad”, so it’s okay for them to mistreat us. Oh, I’m terribly sorry, was my desire to be treated as a human getting int he way of your desire to be treated as a human? Ha, silly me! Why, it’s completely understandable that you’d smash me under your heal just to avoid being smashed under the heels of other people as badly as they’re already smashing you and then turn around and whine about how the LGB treats you like a red-headed stepchild while expecting your support.
Seriously? It just needs to stop.
