@thingywott and if you are, it's okay to be broken! it doesn't make you worthless! it just makes you more you!
we should end ableist goals that say being broken makes you somehow bad. it doesn't.
thoughts about hbomb and the fundraiser
cool. seeing lots of takes. and i'm fucking tired and burnt out on this place. my only take about the hbomb stuff?
it shows that there's a groundswell of people who care enough about trans people to throw money, the lifeblood of our capitalist society, at helping trans people in a far more direct way than posting shitty thinkpieces.
as trans people, we tend to condemn cis people who don't understand, noting understanding is their work, not ours. then, when they try to understand, we tend to default to criticizing that as performative. this is fucking bullshit imo.
i really can't bring myself to believe, logically, that this whole thing is performative. for me, as a trans person, this whole fundraiser is giving me an amazing feeling. it seems like, maybe, random people are just starting to not default to hating us.
it's not ideal – ideally, it wouldn't be necessary. but it's setting up a strong precedent for 2019. a really fucking strong one.
