I declare #CakeForTransFriendsDay.
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.
@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. 🤔
@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 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.

Within seconds of posting a screenshot of this toot, I got a message saying "Why are we baking cakes for trannies just because their trans, should we bake cupcakes for midgets because their midgets"
@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?
@cassolotl I too want a cake. Maybe one of those vanilla cakes with the colored sugar bits inside. With chocolate frosting.
