Anonymous asked:Is 'crossdresser' or 'dragqueen' offensive? And can you please answer my other question?
Not trying to be rude, but this is one of the most easily googled questions you could have sent (and I never got your other message, I don’t think)
unless a specific trans woman says she is a crossdresser or drag queen (and this would apply only to this ONE trans woman-not all), the answer is (pretty obviously) yes, it would be offensive.
A transgender woman was stabbed repeatedly and dumped into a pond tied to a block of concrete in Cleveland, Ohio.
police announced yesterday they had identified her body after she went missing a month earlier on 27 March.
The 20-year-old was found three weeks later naked from the waist down with multiple wounds.
The man who found her initially believed the body was a mannequin, and contacted police who checked their missing persons list.
In the past, Acoff had clashed with police and the courts over her wish to be treated as a woman.
In January 2012, a judge found her guilty of possessing dangerous drugs after Acoff pleaded no contest.
These drugs included hormones used to boost estrogen in women. She was fined $1000 and sentenced to 100 days in jail.
this just breaks my heart. heavy trigger warning
the war on drugs extends to getting hormones street side.
Her name is/was Ci Ci (Cemia) Dove. Below is a donor link for her family. She was a part of MY community. https://transohio.donortools.com/my/funds/52068-Cemia-Acoff-Fund

Anonymous asked:People are mean. It is just what happened. I have been made fun of, and so has everyone else. I understand it fucking sucks, but don't think you are the only one. You want equal rights? Here you go, the right to be disliked because fuck you. EVERYONE has that right, you are just a lot more offended by it.
being assaulted/murdered for being trans (&more than likely POC) is a lot different than “someone was a little mean to me.”
Being denied proper (if any) healthcare/employment bc you’re trans is a lot different than “someone was a little mean to me”
being told that/treated like you are less than human nd your existence is unacceptable (by SOCIETY) for being trans is a lot different than “someone was a little mean to me”
Anonymous asked:Why is it insulting to say I like transgendered people? Or people by a gender, like I like transwomen? How is it different from saying "I like women" or "I like men"? I thought you wanted to get treated equally with everyone else....
it’s not insulting to be attracted to trans people, it’s insulting to fetishize trans people & insinuate that they’re sex objects vs people & that (for example) binary trans women are a different gender than binary cis women.
