I declare .

I'm fed up of "coming out" days that ask trans people to come out in an unsafe world, doing all the risky stuff, while cis people ignore us.

Today, 14th Oct, every year, the onus is on cis people to buy cake for their , and otherwise genderly-interesting friends.

@cassolotl i like this. I'd have liked this better with enough advance notice to buy the cake, but adding it to my calendar

@acrata I'm wondering if there is a way to set up an annual automatic alert (with a few days' warning too) that people could subscribe to. 🤔

@cassolotl can I just say that I love 'genderly interesting' as a phrase

@cassolotl maybe we need a Cis Coming Out Day? I want cake, but I'm not sure I know any cis people

@rey Haha, that's a good point, when you're trans and out for long enough everyone is trans. Even people I was friends with back in the day have gotten back in touch with me to say they're trans! :P

Anyway, a cis coming out day would annoy cis people, which I think is overall a good plan. :D

@luluberlu Yes! You just have to be like "I deserve nice things and to be celebrated just for being trans and surviving as best I can!" when you give it to yourself. :D

@luluberlu Oh I see! :D Well, if you know the trans person likes those things then I feel that you are doing it right!

@cassolotl And please ask your #trans #nonbinary and otherwise genderly-interesting friends if they have food sensitivities before doing so!

Wheat, egg, and dairy are in the top 6 food allergies.

@wohali @cassolotl in which case there are some wonderful gluten free vegan cake recipes out there and what is more supportive than going out of your way to make your friends a cake they can enjoy when they may generally have to avoid it?

@cassolotl I wanted to share this on another website, but I had to delete it basically immediately. There's so much hate in the world, and I am so tired.

@TheyCallMeMo Oh gosh, that's awful. :( Take care of yourself! <3

transphobia (slurs), general insensitivity Show more

@cassolotl that's what i'm going to do today. get lots of people to buy me cake. :3

@cassolotl i love it, but do you think we owe it to cis people to give them some lead time? Maybe, and this is just a random day pulled from nowhere, December 26?

@dirt @cassolotl they've had a whole year tbh

and Dec 26 is during the Intercalary Family Period, where a lot of folks spend time with their best-available family

@rey @cassolotl you're right. I saw "October 14" and thought it was today, not a whole year ago

@cassolotl Before anyone asks — yes, I *do* prefer chocolate, thanks. 💚💚💚

@cassolotl I too want a cake. Maybe one of those vanilla cakes with the colored sugar bits inside. With chocolate frosting.
