Then why do we need to be rude to the cis who are not transphobic.
Largely trans people “being rude” to cis people on this site is usually because they’ve said or done something transphobic and didn’t own up to it. In the cases that blanket statements are used, metonymy is used for a number of reasons. the majority of the trans community faces transphobia frequently /by/ cis people and will more than likely have an aversion to cis people as not every cis person is going to have warnings on them that state whether or not they’ll be transphobic or claim not to be transphobic and still say transphobic things.
That and it gives cis people an excuse to ignore power systems in society and ignore the fact that they benefit from a system that actively harms trans people.
Most transgendered people treat this as some form of revenge. I don’t care about whatever the fuck you identify as, just how you treat people. That’s all I had to say.
First of all, it’s transgender, not transgendered. Just like a person is not whited or straighted.
Also, there isn’t a “revenge” part to it. Trans people who you claim are being rude are more than likely expressing their discontent with the current system that completely shits on them for being trans. Trans people are not angry at cis people for being cis. They’re angry at cis people for upholding, directly or indirectly, a system that continues to murder and put trans people into poverty. If you think that that’s grounds to derail the topic about how “Trans people hate cis people” then you’re contributing to the very system that murders them.
It’s not a matter of identity, it’s matter of power system and social inequality. Comparing institutionalized murder and prejudice of trans people to the blanket statements on a website shows a complete lack of understanding of both of those things.
