@Nentuaby he was probably at most the shell of a human being for at least 80 of those 90 years

finallyโ€ฆ a quality Trans Day of Cis-gaze Visibility thread by someone else (on birdhellsite, from my old pal @dirtycitybird) i can actually get behind on the window-dressing farce which is now this shallow day

twitter.com/dirtycitybird/stat

an international trans day, if one were to exist, would be poggers,

but truth told, i canโ€™t wait until thereโ€™s an International Trans Month so that cis people can spend that entire month complaining how they donโ€˜t get one month (because they only get twelve)

totally ok with seeing folks (who almost never interact) to go and unfollow/block away after disapproving of me boosting my past takes on the topic of this complete bullshit day (started by a total cracker because she didnโ€™t like the โ€œnegativityโ€ of another bullshit day started also by a honky)

@TrannyOakley nothing just yet, but a couple of years back on birdsite i half-heartedly floated a day tied to a temporal proximity to key dates which have shaped trans and queer history, tentatively an International Trans Day,

namely,

the Deweyโ€™s counter sit-in of 24โ€“25 April 1965;

the nazi book burning at Institut fรผr Sexualwissenschaft on 10 May 1933;

May Day,

and a couple of other proximal events, with the 3rd more or less being right in the middle of all them

these days, however, Trans Day of Action has deeper roots in NYC, Black and Latine-led, pro-sex worker, and is more direct and less likely to get pinkwashed all to hell

@TwoVealCutlets@radical.town i know not of a trans day of silence

trans day of action in june matters to me, and iโ€™ve casually thrown out there that may 3rd could be international trans day, full-stop, given its temporally proximal placement between several key and pivotal events in trans history (including the Deweyโ€™s sit-in and the burning of books at Institut fรผr Sexualwissenschaft, and also being near to a labour-rights day)

but again, something like that would need to come from folks who arenโ€™t wyt and thinking, โ€œhey wouldnโ€™t it be great if i did thisโ€

@wolfie @ak what iโ€™m saying, as someone whoโ€™s been around tran stuff for almost thirty years, is march 31st is no equivalent at all

six years ago, i went into detail why trans day of visibility is not really anything to be holding on par with substantive, but still localized movements like (Black- and Latine-led) Trans Day of Action

re-iterating: there is no trans counterpart for either IWD (today), International Non-Binary Day (July 14th), or International Menโ€™s Day (Nov 19th)

off-hand reminder how there is a non-binary day (today, hurrah!), a womenโ€™s day (Mar 8th), and a menโ€™s day, (Nov 19th),

and there still isnโ€™t a trans day

(no my sweaties, it ainโ€™t Mar 31st, May 17th, or Nov 20th, but try again!)

reminder:

there is no trans counterpart for either IWD (today), International Non-Binary Day (July 14th), or International Menโ€™s Day (Nov 19th)

meta: international days 

reminder:

international womenโ€™s day is march 8th
international non-binary day is july 14th
international menโ€™s day is november 19th

there is no international trans day,

but

if there were,

it could be may 3rd, if we wanted it
