michigan expat with kentucky roots. i write a perzine called ghost lungs & i live in philly with a gray cat named simone de beauvoir.

trigger warning: extremely cissexist, violent, and rape apologist language

i’m so fucking angry i’m almost beyond words

at a party over the weekend, my coworker, who is a white, straight, cis man ¬†told my friend and coworker, who is queer, that he thought it was completely ok—necessary, even—to rape trans and/or gender non-conforming people that go in the “wrong” bathroom

he used me as an example, as in, he’s cool with me and all, but if he saw me in a bathroom, it would freak him out

i’m heartbroken, but mostly i’m just pissed and i want to stay pissed

i am so fucking sick of this shit and letting it blow over and trying to numb it out of existence

this is why i get so angry at the hrc, why i don’t give a shit about marriage “equality”

because this kind of rhetoric kills people, every day, all the time, especially trans women, especially people of color, especially poor people

i want to feel my anger, i want to use it as fuel, i want to do something
