past me was the worst
you know what we don't talk about enough
the phase immediately after admitting you are trans/nonbinary/etc, where it is extremely tempting to just go "haha yeah I have admitted it, now i can shove it down and never talk about it and just vaguely go 'yeah lol i guess im trans' or something when asked and never change or commit or do anything scary"
French Islamophobia, fascism, holy fucking shit
What the fuck
"BBC News - France's Macron issues 'republican values' ultimatum to Muslim leaders.
• Children will be given an IDENTIFICATION NUMBER to help locate them.
• Imams must register.
• No political actions as Muslims."
trans people literally face 1950s-style homophobia + GNCphobia on steroids every day of our existence
and vanishingly few "allies" seem willing to actually analyze & combat this
*middle of the impact zone
it's not that butch cis dykes no longer get called predatory for having sex with women or that cis gay/bi men no longer get accused of recruiting young teenage boys
but it sure is a lot more acceptable on the "left" to lowkey or highkey accuse butch trans dykes of "autogynephilia". or to lowkey or highkey promote the theory that (especially gay/bi) trans men are causing ROGD in teenagers
This is why Cersei is unfortunately accidental transmasc representation
Even here in Denmark we have a hyperfem cishet-identified far-right ~public intellectual~ who turned out to have a backstory of "I always privately identified as a man and have gone my entire life feeling deep dysphoria and despair which is why I think no one should transition". At least find a better way to sublimate
what I hate most of all is that I'm still liking this book
all the bad reviews of this book are actually attacking it because they don't know what a pastiche is and don't even mention the reactionary politics. I hate it here
this book keeps throwing around the word "radicalized" to describe, again, what's literally just fantasy desegregation & disability inclusion. I HATE IT HERE
"haha I'm gonna make the villain of this book be a guy who looks up to Che Guevara and wants to topple the aristocracy. because WHAT IF DESEGREGATION BUT TOO MUCH"
-- the author of a book (Fangirl) that changed my life when I was 15, apparently!
