You know how white people are always like “just because you don’t see something doesn’t mean its not real?” Well, how come they’re never like that about racism? Like ,does that shit only apply to fairies and UFO’s?
But if we joke that homophobes are all homos, we let straight people rest easy. Homophobia becomes something that isn’t just targeted at LGBTQ people. It’s something perpetuated by us too.

tw: transmisogyny, misgendering
never forget that trans* women who are just trying their hardest to pass are mocked and ridiculed and called “men in dresses” but cis dudes who wear skirts and makeup are paraded around tumblr queer circles as brave creative “femme” heroes
never forget that ppl within our community won’t even blink at calling a drag queen “she” or “her” or whatever silly stage name they’ve come up with but these same ppl will turn around and moan for ages about how hard or inconvenient it is to respect a trans* person’s pronouns and chosen name
never forget that WE, cis queer people, have made the one space that’s supposed to be safe for our trans* siblings a place of mockery and harm and exclusion, and we have yet to fucking fix it

Like it’s really infuriating that femininity is mostly only glorified and worshipped and considered valid and subversive and sexually appealing when it’s happening on the masculine, normatively attractive, muscled body of a man for whom femininity is not a normal part of their everyday life.
i wish there were more movies about queer chican@s
watching mosquita y mari was too real
it spoke to me on so many levels
and i left it feeling validated, visible, and satisfied
is this how white queers feel about most new queer cinema???
must be nice.
